Anybody done any front or rear bumper mods to their 68-72? Seems like something Foose always does and I was wondering if anybody here has.
Got pics?

i might get a little creative with my bumper in the near future, its a little bent and the chrome is shot, so might as well.

I saw Foose do a van bumper on TV. He took out the front plate area and replaced it with a doner bumper smoothing out the lines. No place to hang a plate, but in my state we dont need them.. It looked really nice and clean...

There is a member here that has a Nova that was done by Foose. It may have tucked and narrowed bumpers. foose.novacaine is his user name.

If you wanted to get really crazy, I suppose you could build a steel version of this bumper.

:D:p

I own a Nova because I happen to like Novas. I have taken some liberties and made some upgrades but I was never willing to cross that line. I appreciate the talent, skill, & craftsmanship it took to build this thing but that car has an identity issue. I, personally, want my Nova to be recognizable as a what it is. A third gen X-body.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Identity issue". Anyone who owns a nova would know this is a nova, nothing on it makes it look like another kind of car.
I'm glad that you like nova's the way they are but this thread is about BUMPER MODS so I was sharing one I knew of.

the rear bumper's pretty cool too!


here is a link to the website if anyone is interested in the build of the 1970 nova "Notorious"

The license plate part will look real dumb with a standard issue plate in it... Bad planning.

I find it hard to believe there would be anyone on this site that would toss it out of the garage :devil:

That car is crazy and looks the nuts!
