My dad bought me a 74 Nova from our local junkyard for 800 dollars. I don't have a liscence and have never owned a car, so this is my first. My best friend's dad is going to help me a lot on this project. He's letting me keep the Nova at his body and paint shop and work on it there.
It's in horrible shape, the previous owner tried to restore it I think and bondo'd over dents and rust. What I plan to do is some paint and body work, it's going to be my daily driver. I'm not going to build the engine or race it.
It currently has a straight 250 with a powerglide, which doesnt run since the fuel pump is broken. My friend's dad is giving me a 305 with a 700r(I think) and says that'll be better on gas.
I didn't apply any bondo to it, that was all the previous owner. All I have done so far is sanded down the fender and some of the hood.
Now here are some pics
