History
Learned to Drive on the Red Car in '83 - my Dads car. Its the next one on the list to get restored.
1973 Chevrolet Nova (now Red Jewel 2010 Camaro)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Rebuilt 355 with T350 trans. I still have the Tunnel Ram from when I rebuilt the Blue 72 with the 671 Blower...maybe it will see the light of day again...
Interior
Interior is last thing on list of to do's - pics of new 1/4s and door skins. Tarp blew off in freak Oct snow storm.
Exterior
L88 Fiberglass Hood - Shaved side markers and emblems. Just getting re-repainted 30 years later - I only have the fender pic so far to approve the new Camaro Red Jewel paint.
Audio
Maybe next year...getting the new paint job first! More paint pics.
Suspension
What suspension...torn apart waiting to find new subframe before bodywork.
Wheel and Tire
Back in the day it had Keystone Classics - 15x10 reverse offset, so i cut off the rusty wheelwells and added fiberglass flares (hence new 1/4s, inner wells, trunk and drop downs above). My youngest son liked the Red Car in 2005 better then the Blue 72 which had been sitting the the garage for years (he going into High School in 2012).
