History
Just found in San Luis Obispo last year, son picked it up for a driver. It had issues from the first day. PO (previous owner, Gas Monkey Garage type with few skills) had a fuel cell laying in the trunk (used a motorcycle tie-down to "hold" it in place). Battery mounted in the trunk, holes punched through the trunk pan to run the cables through. First trip to his home I get a call "Dad the Nova made a banging sound and stopped running". I found the PO had routed the battery positive cable over the passenger side exhaust, the cable insulation burned through and shorted to ground. This melted the negative cable clamp and the cable dropped out of the clamp. Wow, the little Chevy has been abused, misused and rat-rodded into an early death! It has found a good home and my son and I bringing the car back to life.
