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
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.

Finding the perfect tree
Four Stovebolts gang up on a little Christmas tree
No, it's not as wretched as all that. These old trucks and their owners were helping at a local Christmas Tree farm, as customers came to cut their trees for the holidays. The trucks made a perfect diversion for the husbands, while the wives wandered back and forth, looking for the perfect tree.
Pictured above is "Dempsey" -- Mike Roache's 1952 Chevrolet 6400 2-ton; Doug "Hambone" Hamilton's 1966 Chevy K10 4x4; "Cletus, The Green Machine" -- Chris "Sweet" Sweet's 1951 Chevy 1/2-ton; and "Charlie" -- John and Peggy Milliman's 1949 Chevy 3800 1-ton Longbed.
After the "photo op," the trucks scattered in the front field so folks could look at them some more and take their pictures with them.
