you guys should have a little sympathy. i love my nova, and know every bolt, nut and screw on the beast. if you guys had to sell your blood sweat and tears, i'm sure you would be pissed off to see the ridicule written. just my $0.02. btw, when i build my garage, it will have sleeping quarters, so when the wife says you can sleep with the F@$%^& car, I Will. It's not just a hobby, it's an obsession.

hey, I never meant any disrespect to anyone, we all know what it is like to loose something we worked so hard to get. I was trying to lighten the poor guy up a bit, he's obviously in pain.

No offense intended, Nova, just trying to lighten your load. Sounds like you'd better build the garage first, then the house.

Hate to hear that, I know how working on a car can become an obsession more than a hobby, I have the same problem. Just work a set of AFR heads into the mortgage Wink.

I loved mine. L-82 Vette 350 with turbo 400 and a 12-bolt 4.11 posi rear. That thing was a rocket ship! And it looked great too. I ran into the guy that bought it from me and he told me that years later, he never changed anything about the car ... it was still running the way I built it, after almost ten years. I drove it for six years before selling it.
