Hey y'all from Mississippi

New member from near Hattiesburg, MS. I've been a fan of Novas and wagons, especially, for years. I almost bought a '64 4-5 years ago, but wound up with a '66 Mustang instead (long, strange, twisted tale).

Anyhow, a couple weeks ago I flew out to Tucson, AZ, and drove back a '63 wagon. Since I have several project cars that I never find time to work on, I was looking for a driver with the mechanicals that I wanted already done, but with a funky beater vibe and a lack of cosmetic refinement that would keep the price in a range that a fireman with kids starting college can handle.

My new baby is a faded white, slightly dented but rust-free, original blue interior, 45K original miles daily driver with a brand new 350, 700R4 trans, camaro rear, TCI front end, and 15" rallys. All she needs to be ready for this year's Power Tour is a front seat, A/C, cruise, and some sound deadening!

I'm glad to be here, and since this one's a keeper, I'll probably be here for a long time. I tend to be a lurker, but I'll be popping my head up from time to time.

BTW, I know where a fella can find a nice '66 Mustang for sale... if anybody ever happened upon someone who wanted one, that is...

Welcome to the site. Post some pictures of the wagon so we can all check it out. Sounds like it runs good if you drove it all the way from Az. the TCI front end is a great upgrade and i think you will enjoy it.

Glad you are joining the best Nova site.

Was your wagon the "white" one on EBay, by Jason?
