How not to install wheel tubs...

I've been visiting my parents in SoCal for the past week or so, and since my Chevy II is currently mothballed at their house waiting for me to get a garage I decided to check Craigslist for missing parts. I ran across this "project" and couldn't resist sharing.

http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/pts/698152619.html

Anyone ever seen a nova tubbed like this? I'm thinking half the car will need to be reskinned.

And see here, I've been doing it all wrong. I could have had my quarters done for $125 each, and found everything I needed for my car at local swap meets!

If it's really not rusty might not be a bad deal dependant on how bad it's hacked up inside.... Have to say though I haven't seen anything like that before!! lol

No Rust!

Hold me back guys, I am having a MAJOR Flash back to the late 60's. Wow.

I like the statement NO RUST. Oh I guess he means on the GOOD parts of the car. LOL.

6T6NOVA - Since you mentioned flashback, there was a guy in my town that had a black 3rd gen with a 427 in it. Something happended to the engine so he pulled it apart and it sat forever. Another guy bought it and painted it yellow with mutlicolor stripes and did nearly the same thing to the rear wheelwells. I don't know how he got it in a garage . Then he wrecked it and really destroyed it .

This post makes one think of some of those AMT kits that ended up smeared with glue and putty.

Guess those kids bought real cars eventually.
