Story of our Nova:
We found this car in a garage in April 2011, stripped to bare metal on jack stands. We knew we were going to buy it at first sight.  We loaded it by hand, brought it home, put it on rotisserie that day.  This car was almost rust-free. Unbelievable!  
The Nova was a 6-cylinder car, so Jeff changed it to 5 Lug – V8, lowered 2” all around, and found a 1964 model, 283 sitting in another guys’ garage.  The machine work was complete, bored 40 over with complete rebuild kit lying beside it with 488 Erson cam, 86 IROC Z-heads and 600 Holley carb.  It has custom interior with console he made, classic instrument gauges, Billet Specialty – Chicayne steering wheel.  The wheels are 17x7 American Racing, 805 Blvd. with Hankook rubber.

The car was originally Aqua Blue, so we painted it Auqa Blue Metallic off the 2010 Chevy Camaro. It has all original sheet metal other than 2" Cowl hood. With the exception of trunk Cove Moulding, all the stainless, glass, handles, wiring, window cranks, etc., is original! It was just dumb luck finding this car.
