Hi everyone my name is Mathew. Im a 26 year old father of a little 8 month old girl and although I am currently not married it will probably be pretty soon. I have been into cars and building things all my life, there is nothing better than looking at something and saying "I built that". I have had alot of projects over the last 10 years but my most current one is a 1974 chevy nova. It was an Inline six auto tranny with some factory upgrades like power disc brakes and had an aftermarket A/C unit installed. It was sitting across from my dads house when he moved there in 2000 and I just kept asking for him to sell it to me till he finally gave in last year. Here is pic of when I picked it up and I will do build thread of my progress so far. thanks for looking

I put some 2 inch lowering springs in the front and after I get the car back together I will see what to do with the back.

You have been busy,she is looking really good.You should try to make the trip down to Pleasanton for the Mini Nats to show her off this year.I have not been to Carson City for years,the last time was for the Carson Valley Qualifier motor cycle race that left from behind the Carson Valley Inn.

Took her down the street today has alot more power than the 327 I took out. Picked up some wheels two weeks ago and I need to polish them up. Still got alot more to do but at least it looks like a car again.
