Dang Charlie. I know you know this but what a privilege to own Nick's Chevy truck. I can remember the first time he pulled into Louisville Point, that truck pulling his 56 Rocket. Congratulations young man. Nick did great to pass it along to you.

Moving along on my 1951 Oldsmobile 303 engine refresh.  Cylinders honed and new rings installed on stock pistons.  One of my original heads was cracked and I got lucky and found some 1956 heads that are a major upgrade with bigger valves,springs and ports and good for an extra 60hp.  Just got them back from machine shop.  Slow go using cast-off and NOS parts and deals where/when I can find them.

Charlie, that's sweet, I didn't realize that Nick restored this.... Very cool, I bet Nick will be getting a ride in it soon...

Congrats Charlie!







The restoration is remarkable, it’s got modern suspension and brakes, modern cooling and electrical systems, electronic ignition, air conditioning, too much to list and every thing about it looks factory fresh and professionally done, all in Nick’s backyard garage, including paint. It’s totally impressive in every way. Nick’s work is just spot on everywhere!
