    I like seeing the restoration of older cars. Looking forward to part 2 of the update.

    Really like Novas! Only thing put me off is amount of rust, and me not being good with bodywork.

    Perfect for you though

    ill be honest, if i was doing anova again, id get it dipped and e coated. its not cheap but you know it wont rust again. be aware bolt on panels are getting silly, because people are hoarding them. if you find panels, buy them. what engine are you going for?
