Default Greetings and good evening.

Decided to jump into a new forum. It turns out Iíve been a member of this site for an unknown time, I donít even remember registering. Just had to reset my password. I donít think Iíve ever posted but I suppose itís possible.

Been working on my 74 Nova for 9 years now. Working on sheet metal now. Repairing rust, replacing panels. Iíve back/halved and tubbed the car, built a 4-link rear suspension, installed DSE subframe connectors, narrowed and rebuilt the 10 bolt diff/axles. Installed a cage, modified/fabricated bucket seats. Did a bunch of work to the front subframe. Iíve got a Muncie and an LQ9? (Truck) 6L LS for it. Need to go through the trans and engine yet.

Life has thrown some obstacles in my way on this project. Iíve been back working on it for the last 6 months with some urgency. Itís on the rotisserie now. Hoping to have the rough metal work finished up enough to get it in sealer, on the ground and mocked up with the engine and trans in it this year. With a lot of work, enough money and a little luck, Iíll be painting it this time next year.

Ill be starting a build thread and posting some of the recent projects in there. Looking forward to chatting with you all. Best wishes!

Thank you. Can photos be uploaded directly to the site or do I need a place to host them? Wait...I can just try it now.

Welcome aboard .I had a 1973 Nova SS Hatchback 4 speed as my first car. I learned a lot on that car .I have a 1979 Z-28 Camaro now .And it took me a long time to build .Just remember that this is a hobby and might take awhile with life throwing roadblocks along the way.It makes it more of a accomplishment when finished Good luck to you
