Really nice! I like the spot light and all the chrome work. Is it original or restored?

Does NY have "historic registrations/plates or do you have it as a "daily driver"?

I just finished putting it back together. It still doesn't run, and when I put power to it, it shorts out. I think it's in the pick-ups.

It is totally original, right down to the spare tire. Original paint, interior, drive train, hubcaps, and owners manual. That's why I took first place, it's because of the originality of it. There were nicer cars in my class... And yes NY has historic plates, but I cheapened out and went for regular plates.

Thanks all!! My son and I just finished waxing up the Nova, and we're taking both of them to the shows tomorrow, actually they're just cruises and get togethers, no trophies or classes.452.JPG

That's very cool. It looks restored...really nice condition!

We have antique registration here in NJ and they are free! One of the very few perks of living here, lol.
