Always been a Car guy never had a car

Have been to many car shows and swap meets with friends that had cars. Drooled over many nice cars. I always had Harleys, and living in a trailer park meant no storage for a muscle car. Finally I bought a house with a large garage and the hunt was on. Was looking for a full size Chevy, my budget would not allow a Camaro or Chevelle. Then a friend said he new of a 70 Nova dirt cheap. Went and look at it and it was mine. Took it right to the restoration shop, it was going to be a budget build, new fenders new door skins, quarters, and chrome. After painting the sides,the new parts, I decided to paint the whole car. It came out beautiful. The first show I took it to it won peoples choice. That was two years ago this past spring I had the engine bay redone all powder coat and flat black paint manifolds ceramic coated new chrome valve covers new edlebrook manifold and new hollie 4-barrel carb. and a 4-speed manual put in. It sits on rallye one wheels with cop-caps. I also had it lowered all around. This year maybe some new wheels chrome torque thrust. Some budget build. Anyway to shorten this story I have fully enjoyed being part of this hobby and have met many new friends.Hurry springtime! John
