Hi everybody.....................I'm new to your forum, and just wanted to say hi. I've been lurking around here for a while, and felt it time to join. I have many questions to ask, and this seems like the perfect place to do it. Hope to make many new friends here.

I ordered my Nova new in 1971, but I have to admit, I never thought I'd still have it today. I missed the '70 order deadline, but that might have been a stroke of luck for me. '71 was the first model year that GM introduced the low lead motors, so there was no need to rework heads or use a lead substitute. But (sigh) a big block would have been nice.

I still love the Burnt Orange; there's just not that many of them around. When I figure out how to post a pic, I'll share one. Frank

You are pretty close; I'm in Wind Lake. Maybe we could start our own chapter and call it the S.E. WI group? Or however it works. Thanks everybody for the warm welcomes. F

How could we get that done? Do you know enough members from here to get a group together? Maybe we could informally organize; include S. E. WI, and maybe even include N. E. Ill.

I just met another Nova owner, who might sign up here, and would be interested in meeting someplace with our cars.

There is a drive in in East Troy called Gus's that have cruise nights every Sat night all summer long. That might be a central enough place to try for a first get together if there is any interest. We have until next year to work out the details. How about it bald1? Frank

:thumbsup:Hey, I'm the new guy here! I don't know anybody, and if you know anybody, you know more than I do.

I'm interested in joining a group locally, so put me on the list after you! We have all winter to get something organized for next spring. You can reach me here, or I can make my e-mail address available. Thanks. Frank :D

The first picture is from August 1, 1971. The car is in much better shape than we are!

The others were taken this summer after it was taken out of storage.

She's a "plain jane", but a beauty nonetheless.
