My 1972 Chevrolet Nova 2 dr. Coupe. This is how the car looked when I purchased it in 1996. It had 66,000 original miles on the 250 straight six. This Nova's original owner drove it until she was 92 years old. I'm not sure how the old lady lasted that long without power steering or power brakes! It was kept in a garage its entire life, and I knew it was up to me to maintain and restore this classic. Little did I know what I was getting myself into!

[Nova '99]

This is my car as of December 1999!

It still looks great because I take care of it. I have added older style 15x8 rally wheels, which have been powdercoated black, and 235-60 Dunlop Qualifiers. All the bushings, including the motor and tranny mounts, have been upgraded to polyurethane. The one-inch sway bar is not stock either. Only a few things stand in the way of a complete restoration. Body, paint, and interior are still original. Mechanically I still have plans for disc brakes, and 12-bolt positraction with multi-leaf.
