History
This is my first car, it was my 18th Birthday Present. I have had it since 1985, I drove it everyday for a year and then had new quarters and new paint so I parked for its first Winter. It was a 6cyl/2spd no option Nova, it had a 230hp 327/350 turbo in it when I got it, since then I have done as much as possible myself, my Father helped me and shared my passion for Cars. He had a Fully Custom 1984 S10 that we also built at my house, he passed away several years ago. In 1989 I bought a similar 6cyl/2spd 1969 Chevelle as a winter car. It has gone through a complete Custom Build also. The Nova has not seen winter or bad weather since.
