Hello, new here and full of questions. I suppose I'll ask them in the body forum though.

We have a 1967 4-door Chevy II/Nova. Her name is Betty Blue. She's in pretty rough shape, but hopefully we can change that. From the vin, I have determined she's a Chevy II 400 Nova, 4-door sedan. Runs great, drove right up onto the trailer. Brakes are kinda sticky, but those will be changed.

Future plans include a 5.3, new brakes, lots of new stuff. Not so much stock. She'll be driven to work a few times a week when she's ready, and she'll be willing to run down the track or take the fam to the car shows.

Doing lots of research these days, taking notes as well. Looking forward to getting her road ready!

Thanks!

The fam here at home includes me, my hubby, my mom, and our kids (puppy dog and a horse). Mom and the kids likely won't help at all, and the rest of the fam is in another state!

Looks like it'll be just me and the hubby. Hubby will be doing the work, I'm sure! I'd love to get her off the trailer and at least in the carport, then I could dink around with her a bit. Poor girl has been on that trailer for a couple of weeks now.

Well, I'm originally from an hour north of LA, grew up in Canyon Country, CA. Hubby grew up in Wisconsin. Now, we're about halfway between Katrina and Rita, we got some Ike and Gustav last year.

We got her in Silverhill, AL. We did stop by a small car show at a church right after we picked her up. Maybe 10 minutes down the road? How funny if you saw us!

Oh, by the way.... working on getting another one as we speak... she's in much better shape!

Just purchased, hopefully she'll be delivered in the next couple of weeks!
