Wow, six pictures......none showing the engine, drivers side, rear or underneath, but bidding is over $30,000. The seller is insinuating that this is an L79, but uses the word 'correct' everywhere, not 'original'. The SS rocker trim looks strange because the black accents haven't been painted, but otherwise it appears to be a real nice car.

Looks pretty awesome Bob. Agree with you about a car at $30K, reserve not met, not having more, better pictures. Photos can make a car look much better than it is. May not be the case here. When I bought mine, from CraigsList, I talked to the guy first. He e-mailed me dozens of hi-rez pics. Some were even close ups of anything he thought was a flaw. And I didn't pay near half of what that car is at.

I bought my L79 sight unseen, too, although I really promote not doing that:rolleyes:. The car was advertised in Nova Times, which was a positive indicator right off the bat. The first thing I got from the seller was the name of the guy who restored the car. When that all checked out I also got dozens of pictures, many of areas I asked to see. By then, I knew I was dealing with a reputable seller and the pics proved the car was everything he said it was....a Canadian built, fully documented from new, restored as original L79 Nova SS. I didn't pay much more for it than where the bidding sits for this Ebay car, but that was in the late 90's:rolleyes:.

It is a nice car,but I agree more pics & details are needed for a $30,000 + car. More pics may be available from the seller if asked. Also, the blue radiator support shining through the grille looks tacky. :rolleyes:
