Just picked her up late last night and am on the road back wiht her from NY city to IOWA. We had to update her water pump 50 miles in. She is a 66 Nova wagon 100 series(true black car with all original red interior) My plans are 18-7 20-10, air ride,ls with auto(maybe a stick???) and the twin turbo treatment. We are headed to time square with her today and of to the midwest with a friendly stop in CHi town on Sat. SO if you spy her on the highway,gravels roads,or ditch(I hope not) She is in the hands of a steves member.:D:D I will post pics of our drive(we are just practicing up for the power tour):yes::yes:

What route will you be taking thru Ohio? It would be cool if you could stop at the Auto show in Cleveland and I could check it out. Also you could check out our steering set up and see if your nice headers will work in unisen with them. The show is right by the cleveland airport. Give me a call 330-442-7162

I just check Map Quest and you should be traveling the Ohio turnpike which will put you less than 5 mi. away from the I-X center, this is where the show is at (INDOOR) the town is actually Berea.

100 miles East of Toledo put you in my backyard-That bridge over highway pic looks like the scenic bridge over the Ohio Turnpike between Route 8 (Exit 180) and Route 21 (Exit 173) just East of the Cuyahoga River Valley- Not very far from my house.
Hope you have a safe trip
back and the old wagon lives up to everyones expectations !!!!!!!!

Chad, what's it got in it that it gets that mileage?

I'm waiting until our snow's gone to swap in a 2004R to improve the 12-14 mpg I get with the powerglide (and my heavy foot :eek:)
