Here's my 1970 Nova project. The car was a six cylinder with 42,000 original miles. Last registered in CT in 1972! I've owned the car for 18 years and I'm just getting back around to working on it. Just ordered a Detroit Mini Tub kit, inner quarters, and full quarters. The body work is done on the front half of the car now onto the back half! Wish me luck!

Year: 1970

Model: 2 door coupe

I've got a 6.0 block so I'll probably end up building a 408 stroker out of it, and I'd also like to convert it from a automatic to a standard. It's going to be mostly a street machine I'm not sure if I'll lower it and go for the full pro touring look.

The color turned out great. That is quite a while in paint jail. Are you doing the work yourself?
I did all the sheet metal work, and then had someone do the body work and paint. It took about about 5 weeks to do the body work and paint @ around 40hrs a week in my dads garage.
