I've had it on eBay and got a decent price for it. Kinda bittersweet. I've had it long enough and now it's someone elses turn to enjoy it. I can now finish my '42 Chevy pickup that I started a few years ago. Gonna be wierd walking into the garage and not seeing my '45 sittin' there. Maybe the new owner will pop in to the Stovebolt Site.

I've never sold a car without feeling a little nauseous when it actually leaves, but I really like where your going with that 42. Besides that 42 will probably be more fun to drive than the 45 was.
Good luck, Rob

Glad you got a fair price for it, your 42 is gonna be quite a bit different than your 45! Looks like you did a nice job putting it together. thumbs_up The guy that bought it, is he local?

Man, selling that beautiful '45 must've been like losing a member of the family! Looks like the new project is going in a different direction, is the '42 going to have "Stovebolt" power??

I keep telling myself that it's someone else's turn to enjoy it but I feel like I'm giving up one of my kids for adoption. My son and I brought this ol' jalopy truck back to it's former glory. Who says trucks don't have personality? The guy bought it lives about 30 miles away, so it's nearby. Maybe I can have visitation rights. Now it's on to the next project..........

John, I looked carefully at your truck - you did an amazing job - the new owner is oh so lucky. Looking forward to seeing your progress on your new project. The new owner of your 45 should feel very fortunate.

Been there done that. I sold my 52 GMC and now I'm onto a suburban project. Sometimes it is better to just move on and not think about it too much.
