Hey Jock...........Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to the family!
Been slack (too busy) getting on here lately, but still love to drop in from time to time. Hope all is well out there in the big land of Scots!

All the best...............Bob.

Hi Bob,a belated Merry Christmas and a guid New year to you too!
I was over at 'the Spoon' and saw you had surfaced again..... wink

There's certainly nothing wrong with being busy.

Been pretty busy here too,with all the storm damage.
Roof tiles, falling masonry,tree branches and car glass, bad combination!

Apart from the weather,everything's fine here.
Thanks for checking in,the southern hemisphere 'bolters have been a bit quiet of late,we all miss your Aussie wit and wisdom!

Regards.
Jock.

Sadly my sprite is a mark 2 but a very early one. (SN/HAN6L 1461) The sheet metal work is all done and now it waits for my budget to recover enough for paint and the re-assembly.
The Maple Leaf has big plans. I've been following Michael Corpolongo (CORPO) on his rat rod build of a '36 and am stealing a few good ideas on modernizing the drivetrain and brakes though I think that I'll stick with a more stock look.

Hi all.
The world is fairly top-heavy from all the 'bolts in the northern hemisphere so I'll fly the flag for the southern trucks.
I've got a '47 1.5 ton AD which is slowly getting rebuilt, two years gone now. It is now self-propelled and the cab is almost ready to go back on. I aim to prove that you can finish a truck in less than one lifetime.

I think I'll start a New Zealand- Aussie forum and see what happens, there's got to be more than one of me down here.

cheers

Hi Rich, welcome on board.
There is a fair few 'bolters from both Australia and New Zealand.

I frequent Flickr and there's always loads of truck pics from OZ and NZ so they are out there!
It just a matter of reaching out to the masses,and preaching the way of the Stovebolt.
Here's a nice '49 from Queensland to get you started.

Mind you a 'Gabfest' in Australia might be a problem due to the sheer distances involved,plus you've also got the North and South islands to consider.
I wonder where kiwiwilly is these days,he's not been around here for a while.

BTW got any pics of your truck, 2 years is relatively quick,I'm into year 7 on mine.......
Jock.

Those storms look horrific Jock!
Hope you fared well, unlike some of those pics frown
We had one hit here in Waroona a few months ago,a mini tornado that cut a path of destruction through town and looked the same as your pictures......only, there are not many houses and buildings around here! ohwell

This was the worst one to hit the Central belt in 13 years Bob,we are more susceptible to gales rather than tornadoes.
We catch the heavy stuff coming in from the North Atlantic.

Mind you where I stay has the cover of the Mull of Kintyre and the Isle of Arran,the folks further north in for example Caithness,get the whole nine yards!
Winter storms up there move rocks the size of Stovebolts up the beaches!
Thats why the west coast look like it does.
I drove along a coastal road the other day and the coastline has actually changed......
The difference is the folks there have 'evolved' to live with it.
The townies haven't.

Although.... Britain statistically has more tornadoes than America relative to our land mass,the ones here are nothing like the scale you see in the USA.
Thankfully i've never seen one!

My house is relatively new (8yrs)and stood up to the battering well,and as I said previously, "The Stovebolt Scottish HQ" was OK too...

The 'HQ' is a 20'x12' wooden garage Bob,it's well anchored with 20 6" expanding Rawlbolts to a concrete base,and my belt!

I got my priorities right though,the wifes F*rd sits out in the driveway...... grin

Weather sounds like New Scotland, particularly the coastal damage. Parts of NS lose up to 4 feet a year from coastal erosion.

I suspect Nova Scotia is in the international zone, I did have a note from an Ebay seller once - "Sorry we don't ship to Nova Scotia, only the US and Canada."

I was not entirely disappointed with that.
