    It's A Overlooked Classic That Has A Lot Of Potential — 68' 327 small block with z28 heads rv cam 1800 stall speed converter 350 turbo with shift kit running blackman headers to dual exhaust with channeled mufflers our and to the rear. buckett seats from 95' grand am, center console from a first gen s-10 blazer painted sun burst yellow but that's going to change......soon

    Pros: you can't miss it?

    Cons: screeming yellow!!

    1976 Chevy Nova Concours — This was my 76 Nova Concours. The car had/has a 350ci v8 with an edelbrock intake and a holley 650cfm 4 barrell Carb. True Dual flowmaster 40 series exhaust. Its Corvette Red and has Corvette rally rims. I loved this car, but it got 7-8 mpg average and I just couldnt afford it at the time. I miss it alot. Wish I knew where it was now :(

    Pros: body style, color, engine, rims, everything

    Cons: gas mileage, insurance price, and that I dont have it anymore

    First Car... Bought When I Was 14 — The thing is a beast.. not fast by musclecar standards... but i abuse the hell out of it and it runs fine, idles fine, passes emissions better than newer cars I have... wich is odd sense there is no cat or muffler on it :). Its ugly yes.. but its beat up (not from me) other wise its not a ba looking car as far as shape. This car will ALWAYS crank it never gives me problems.. but my driveing it so hard has caused transmition problems. But thats not the cars fault.. your not supposed to floor it on every street like I do.

    Pros: Reliable, good handleing for what it is, fun, loud.

    Cons: Cops like to pull me over in it.
