Comments

Finally got around to doing a profle: :cool: This is year 3 of a 5 year build. I have interior and suspension left in coming years.

1970 Nova - California car. Bought from original owner in 2006
This build is a result of huge support and advice from members on this site. Thanks so much.:notworthy:

Car name: STEELRAT - just a name, no reference to a big block :rolleyes:
