Vintage Air vs Old Air

Hey so I was up at the Street Rod Nationals this past weekend, and I was introduced to Old Air Systems and Southern Air. I called southern air, but they said they have nothing for the 1974 nova with a gen IV LS. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with Old Air. They are a bit cheaper than the Vintage Air set up, so if they are good I would like to go with them.

So looks like the Old air is 1427.79 and I would have to make a firewall block off plate and hoses and the vintage air is 1688.07 and everything is included. I am kind of leaning towards vintage air just based on how cool the guy was I spoke with. He told me their price then told me to check out other vendors and I should find everything cheaper.

$1427 for A/C sounds about right. To add A/C to my '64 6 cylinder I estimate to cost $2,000 to $3,000.

I don't know anything about Old Air but my Dad and I have Vintage Air in both of our Novas and it fits good and performs well. All the hot rodders I know around here use VA.

Can't really comment on any other setup other than Vintage Air. I have used them on over 20 cars over the years, and see no reason to switch. The first systems I bought were all cable operated, but the current units are all microprocessor controlled. When you find something that works as good as their stuff does, you stick with it!
