Hello from Fredericksburg VA.

New member to the forum. In a nutshell, car/truck guy, have had my share of jeeps, land rovers, muscle cars, motorcycles. Its my hobby that keeps my feet on the ground. Prior US Marine, father of two boys, 3 and 5.

I was looking to build a protouring/weekend local track car to be able to enjoy the modifications/work I put into it. Nothing over the top just capable. Started to make a list of major components and realized I could probably find a vehicle will a good chunk already completed, especially over the winter for a decent price.

After looking for a few months I came across a CL ad. Long story short I picked up the 68 Nova from its owner of 5 years, stationed in Norfolk. Air Force gentleman would drove the Nova cross country while back from deployments. He was coming up on a 3 year deployment and decided to part with the car.

Its an Arizona car so very solid overal, he put lots of blood sweat and tears into the nova but from first glance she looks stock and ready to grab a few groceries from the store.

Crate LS3 480 w/hot cam
Tremec 600 5 speed
Ford 9" moser axles, Eaton posi, 391 gears
4 wheel disc brakes, willwood 4 piston
Vintage Air A/C
Coil over front suspension QA1 shocks
Hotchkis rear leafs
QA1 shocks
Quick ratio CPP steering
Autometer American muscle gauges

Look forward to contributing to the Nova community as I head down this road.

Adam
