Very nice!     This is the car Chevy should have built.  Definitely would have showed a few Hemi 'Cudas the way home!!

I agree, but I'm sure the Yenko Nova's done that quite nicely. :D

427 L88... With the cowl induction and the American Racing wheels, love that color!... This is one sweet Nova. You have good taste for a Ford guy !

I like it. It looks really nice. I just had a couple of questions. Did the L-88 have aluminum heads? I was just wondering why it doesn't have the regular L-88 air cleaner on it. Please don't take this the wrong way. I really do like it and the photos are great, these are just a couple of things I was wondering about.

That has to be one of the cleanest builds I've seen in awhile. Maybe it's the color or that I just love the Nova, but it is one sweet model.

Thanks for all the good words guys.  As I've said before, not only is it one of my favorite builds, I think they are some of the best model pictures I've taken to date also.  That makes for a double whammy against this so-called Ford guy.......I better do something about that!

 

I like it. It looks really nice. I just had a couple of questions. Did the L-88 have aluminum heads? I was just wondering why it doesn't have the regular L-88 air cleaner on it. Please don't take this the wrong way. I really do like it and the photos are great, these are just a couple of things I was wondering about.

No harm done with those questions Mike, it's all good.  The L-88's did have aluminum heads.  For the air cleaner, I just liked the looks of the custom one I put on, and went with it.

 

Killer looking Nova Tony! Done just right.....even if you are a Ford guy!

 

Yeah, it's kinda tough at times to bring a brand-x to the bench (lol), but I still try to make the best of 'em.  :D
