Back in the late 70's my father bought and then built up this 1970 mailbu that he owned and loved for about 9 years up untill he had to part with it when my older brother was born. It was the first car he had ever taken out a loan to purchase. For the many years after he sold it, while not regretting letting go to start a family, he had always wished he could still have it. To fill the need for a muscle car in the family he bought and restored a 1968 camaro in 2000 (he's been a body man for about 25 years), which was the spark for my never ending love for muscle cars.
Ive held a steady job since i was 11 years old, and after a few years of saving, when i turned 14, i bought myself a 1971 nova for $2000, well what was left of a 1971 nova.
It took me and my father about 3 months to restore, i ended up replacing the quarters, and fenders. the rest was solid for body work. I also had to replace the entire interior, as well as most of the trim and exterior chrome. It also had no engine or trans, so i pulled a 327 and a glide out of a 68 camaro ragtop partscar we had. I went through and rebuilt the entire engine. Ive been building small blocks since i was about 11. Anywho, heres some pictures.
