Hello everybody,

My names Dominic. 24y/o from SoCal, but stationed (Army EOD) in Colorado Springs.

I'm the new owner of a '69 Nova 2dr. going on a few months now. No.. unfortunately I'm not the builder of it. I got it in a trade, and am pretty happy with it. But I will be making it my own car every chance i get. It's parked in my parents garage back in socal, so I'll be seeing it once every 6 months or so until i'm done with my enlistment. Yeah.. sucks but somebodies gotta do it :yes:

The car.. I imagine some may recognize it, but for those that don't:
