Hey guys/girls my wife and I are now proud owners of a 69 Nova. I'm new to this world of cars and have mostly dealt with 1997-2003 Grand Prixs. So I'm going to go ahead and apologize for the amount of questions I will be asking on this forum. Our Nova has a 350 with headers and exhaust, it also has a SS hood, and the front brakes have been converted to discs. The paint is in rough shape and the seats need to be reupholstered. We will also be looking at possibly adding AC as well as some suspension work to try to stiffen up the ride and get rid of the boat like feel it currently has. Anyway thats enough of me blabbing for now so here are some pics of our new baby.

Our plans are to get it to look as original as possible on the interior. We really like the rally wheels so we will probably stay with thos for the time being. You cant really tell from the pics but the paint is cracking in some areas so my wife wants to go with the same blue or maybe a little darker with either black or white stripes. We plan on keeping the 350 and doing some minor stuff to that like a cam, heads, just your basic stuff. We wont be touching the motor until everything else is done though. Oh Also we want to go with a stiffer suspension to get rid of some of that boat like feel. So any info you guys have on that would be great. I want to stay away from buying all new subframes though.
