I am trying to confirm make before putting a rare seat in my 55 were I would be happy with a mass produced seat. These seat tilt to the...

    I was a teenager in the 70s, and we didn't quite grasp how fully awesome these cars were. Friend of mine had a black 63 for a little while. Believe we cracked the block "washing" the engine when it was still hot. Instead of rebuilding, we got a Corvette. Yeah, these babies were a little cheaper...

  8. 1967 nova ss Texas

    Ebay, etc. Discussion
    Here is a 67 ss (4spd) that should interest a few people lookin for nice car. I considered it myself, but since I want a CW front clip and built motor (my neighbor is a hot rod engine building legend! Seriously :D), it would be a shame and quite stupid to ruin an all original car (Haven't...
  9. '75-79 Weatherstripping

    Body and Interior
    Does a kit exist with all the required door, trunk, and quarter window weatherstripping for a 4th gen? Any commonality with the 3rd gens? All I've been able to find through the usual suspects are a la cart. In my case, I'm looking for a 2-door sedan, non-hatchback.
