They are all like
Royal Purple is the colour and the shade changes with the light. I bought "Wild Thing" with the paint already done but have since changed out pretty much everything else. I am not so sure the colour would look good on most cars but on a Nova it works beautifully. Enjoy!

I think it's a Pacer, those pics were taken at the used car place where I bought my car. They were taken and sent to me prior to my going to buy my Nova, so I don't think it's even still there. But yeah, sure don't see many of them anymore........thankfully!!!

Thanks again, I'm REALLY enjoying it!!! It's kinda funny, to start out my wife wasn't much about me gettin a car. She told me it's fine but it will be your car. I said well ok, but will you ride in it with me? She said she would......

Now everytime we go somewhere in it, guess who is smiling and pointing out the people and giving us ....

And, she was the one who brought up going cruisin Sat. nite too!!! Sooooooooooo........I'm not the only one having fun with it!!!

Thanks, I like it alot myself....

I wish I could...... I bought the car from a car lot as it sits and he didn't have anything on the paint code.

I sure would like to have it - probably going to need it some day....

Thanks guys for the nice comments. The car really is everything I dreamed about as a teenager 35 years ago, but I had to become an old man before it could happen.

But, was 16 then & had just got my driver's license, prolly best I didn't have a car like this, I managed to get in enough trouble with what I had!!

I have actually owned it over a year now, thread is a little over a year old.

Hey Shinyside, I'm FF myself. Be careful out there Bro.

Thanks again guys, appreciate it much!!!

Wow that's awesome. It must be nice to have such a close knit department. Are you able to get your hands on a FD shirt to trade??

Well, with 20 volunteers, I wouldn't say that its always "close knit".... But anyway we do a pretty good job for our area, when the conditions get right, we can fight a lot of wildfires.

We are fortunate to have nice equipment: 2000 and 2001 F350 4x4 small brush trucks, 2004 and 2006 IH large 6x6 brush trucks, (2006 is foam equipped), a 2006 Pierce Contender 5 man KW engine, a 2008 Pierce KW 3000 gallon tender, and a 2012 F350 crewcab 4x4 command vehicle. A lot of work has went into acquiring those units: we have an awesome chief.


Lemme see what I can do on the T-shirt, what size?

You guys have any patches to trade?
