I am a new member but long time fan of Nova's. I Owned a 1963 6 cylinder back in 1980 but sold it when I got married. My dream car since I was 18 is the 1966 Chevy II Super Sport. Until now I have not been able to afford to get one but that has changed and I am looking for one right now. Do you have any advise on what to do or not to do when buying online? My first choice would be to find one near or in Wisconsin but we will see if that is possible.

I would appreciate any advise or tips from anyone on finding a car.

I will also monitor this site to see if anything shows up for sale.

Thanks.

TO SNS , :waving:

BEST WAY IS TO ACTUALLY SEE WHAT YOU'RE BUYIN', LOOK FOR RUSTY FLOOR PANS, TRUNK, REAR LOWER QUARTER PANEL, IN SIDE THE FENDER AREA, AROUND THE GLASS. THEN SEE WHAT IT'S MISSING.
ALL OF THIS IS IF YOU'RE WILLIN' TO TACKLE A PROJECT. NOW A LITTLE MORE CASH WILL GET YOU A LITTLE MORE CAR IN BETTER SHAPE. WHEREVER YOU DECIDE TO BUY, SEND OUT A SHOUT TO US IN THE PARTICULAR AREA YOU'RE LOOKIN', AND ASK IF SOMEONE CAN TAKE A LOOK AT IT FOR YA! :yes: OTHERS WILL CHIME IN WITH MORE INTEL, SO WAIT AND SEE WHAT OTHERS SAY.
GLAD TO HAVE YOU WITH US,
ENJOY THE SITE! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the welcome. I can't wait to find a car.

When I find one I will see if anyone is in the area to take a look if it's not local.

Welcome to SNS. Take a body man with you if you don't trust your judgement, better yet, a Nova body man. There are alot of people on this site that can advise you, if you can post some pics. Good-luck !!!

Welcome to SNS. I didn't have much luck finding a rust free project in Minnesota. Even the car I brought back from Arizona, built in Texas, had a rusted trunk drop. Having said that, if you're willing to travel a little you are likely to find a good rust-free, or minimal-rust car. Be patient and take you time. There's a '66 or '67 sedan on the Mpls. Craigslist for 4 grand. It looks interesting and if I had the garage space I'd take a serious look at it. Good luck.
