Well, I spent 4 months looking for a suitable Nova for my daughter. I would have rather had an older one, but I couldn't pass up this one. It was a father/son project, so it has had some work done. The paint and interior is 6+ years old but still not bad at all. I feel lucky after looking at some of other projects here. So far I have had the front end bushings and ball joints replaced, one window regulator, neutral saftey switch and a new set of T/A's on the rear. Other than that it was all cleaning and polishing to get it to this point. The 6 is tired but still working fine, and it goes fast enough for a fathers peace of mind. I am new to Novas but not new to Chevys, however my experience is mostly with trucks. I will be learning all I can from this site.
