Way Overdue

13 posts in this topic

Ive been so lazy that up until now, i havent made a thread about my 1st car...

for a few months, i was looking for LT1 Camaros, for cheap, fast, reliable power.... i was also looking at 5.0 Mustangs, and Monte SS's...

i heard a kid i know from the fire dept talking about his uncles 71 Nova for sale, and i thought i definatley couldnt afford it...

he told me it was a project car, and was $3000... so me, being intrigued, go to check out this car... and i get excited.. so after thoroughly inspecting the car, bringing back a friend, deciding i could handle the restoration needed, talking to the owner (who was selling the car to make room in his garage for the new 07 Shelby he bought) and negotiated the price,

so on December 28th, i took posession of a beautiful, primer, 71 Nova

it was originally a 6 banger, now a 350...has a TH350 trans, only rust is the front fenders which are getting patched...

It was originally lime green, with a green interior, but now has a black interior

needs some parts which im stockpiling now, and its going in for a paint job in a few weeks...

Metallic blue with White Stripes

heres the pics i got of the car:

Nice, SS623. These Novas are still affordable, and you can do everything to these you can do to a Camaro, afaik. Please update us as you go through the process. :)
