Stovebolter, the Next Generation
Owen braved the cold at the weekend Homecoming event at Stovebolt HQ last month, with a few visits indoors to play with pint-size trucks and warm up a bit. A good long nap on the ride home to Virginia, and he started tinkering with his tricycle motor . After that, he hopped right in to help Dad with his 1951 Chevy pickup 3100 restoration.
Gathering of Bolters
We've been getting more and more listings from Stovebolters who are getting together for car shows, truck shows, cruise-ins, swap meets -- or just getting together! It is a great time of year for getting those old trucks back on the road and testing out some of the projects you attempted during the winter -- and sharing the experience.
Be sure to check the Event pages to see what's shakin' in your neck of the woods. And pester these "car show" people ... let 'em know they really ought to consider calling the event a car and TRUCK show! Might help with participation!
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.
