Supporting the Stovebolt Reunion and the website all year 'round!

  Welcome to our Virtual Garage for pre-1973 GM trucks -- If you're restoring, preserving or just driving an ole "Stovebolt," our "e-zine" has information we hope you'll find useful for living with your old truck -- from links to parts vendors (the best list of Stovebolt-related links on the 'Net!), a Gallery of old trucks to a virtual Swap Meet where you can find (or sell) those elusive parts to complete your restoration projects. We even have a discussion forum where you can ask questions, post ideas and even hang out with some old rusty Stovebolters!

We have a lot of things here but the best one is knowledge and we share it for free (no membership dues or pay-to-view).

So pull up a virtual running board, cop a squat and check the Gallery for lots of old truck stories. If you have some questions about the old GM truck project you are working on, try our FAQ, Tech Tips or jump right into The Forums, where the Stovebolt Brain Trust resides.

We've got everything in here from 1/2-tons to 3-tons, COE's, Panels and 'Burbs, Firetrucks, Tow trucks -- Lots of trucks in all shapes, sizes and stages of restoration and enjoyment.

Join us and make us stronger   Because none of us are as smart as all of us!
 KANSAS CITY -- Here we come! 10th Annual Stovebolt Re-union 
September 5, 6, and 7

If you don't know these ruggedly handsome and charmingly beautiful faces ... it's not OUR fault. You should come to the 10th Annual Stovebolt Reunion at the Midwest All Truck Nationals at Riverside Park, in Kansas City (MO) and meet some of the Brother and Sister Hood of the 'Bolt.

We'll be gathering right smack in the middle of the USA with the Genuine Chevy and GMC Truck Club for three days! Check the Kansas City Reunion forum for details. You might be able to hitch up with a convoy of other Bolters coming in for the long weekend. Or just come for a day if you're close by. We'll have lots hands-on truck work, and equipment / tool demonstrations, going on throughout the day on Saturday. Check the KC Reunion forum for details. So check in ... plan on coming. You don't have to bring a truck. There will be plenty of old Chevy and GMC trucks at the show for you to see! It's one incredible event!
