i admit to having a fetish for old g.m. trucks. i probably have owned well over 100 vehicles in my lifetime but old g.m. was always the favorite. my dad knew this, and gave me a 54 hydromatic when i got home from the service. mom told me he looked everywhere for an auto trans truck since i had a bit of a problem walking in those days. i ran that old truck into the ground, and have wished a million times i had kept and rebuilt it.
a couple of years ago i bought a 47 international on an s-10 frame. a pretty waykool truck that has served me well and taken us on 2 vacations (including a trip from indy to the world headquarters of stovebolt international). a great fun truck, but, well, not g.m..
so, tonight, i bid on and won, another old g.m. truck on ebay. it's a 52 on a late model frame (what i like) and i'm looking forward to some paint and body work..... then... off to other adventures.
so tonight i came home. back to being a (modified) stovebolter. heading to arkansas saturday with the carhauler, and looking foward to better things. shortened 52
