Hi

Hi,
Great looking car. I would love to have that car down here on the
show circuit. I'd have to make a tape telling everybody what it is.
Most of the idiots at car shows know everything, this would fool
them a bit. But I'll bet someone would come up to me and say:
I HAD ONE JUST LIKE IT BACK IN THE 70'S!!!
How many times have we heard that line!!!
Anyway, good job on that car!!!!
Ken

Luckily it has all the correct emblems
Acadian trim and badges are becoming impossible to find these days

My car has Acadian headlight bezels, they look nice but I should give them up for someone's restoration.

The aluminum trim on the 68-69 Acadian Grilles are held on with clips. It is a standard Nova grille otherwise. I have only seen one pair of grille bars for sale in the last 8 years or so since owning my 68. (still don't know why I didn't buy them??)
There does seem to be more Acadian parts still around out in BC though.

68-69 only. Otherwise I would have been at your place by now stripping them off your car.
