I feel your pain man. Sometimes there just isn't enough time I the day or enough cash in the bank account. Im heading onto year 7. Ill be happy if this year I can get the car into primer and block sanded.

I bought my '70 in summer of 2005, so I'm approaching year 8. As long as I show progress, I'm happy. I'm hoping to be finished in 2014. The thing that really keeps my eye on the prize is that I have a 1969 Camaro to start on when the Nova is finished.

Thanks now I do not feel so bad about it taking sooo long. I just see alot of novas on here getting done in like less then a year. Those guys must have 39 hour days or somthing :)
