Very nice on all aspects of the build.  Engine, chassis, color and stance, all top notch.

Very nice looking Nova Bruce! I really like the color on it! I built one very similar to yours when this kit came out. But, I messed up by using the junky Testors One Coat "Icy Blue" on it. It desperately needs a re-paint. Nice work on yours!

Ya, what Glenn said ...... course you have to be a teenager to figure out some of this computer stuff.... us old people just sit there and stare .... and then call our kids to come show us how to do it...oh and that is a beautiful Nova .....reminds me of the one I had 1970, 350 small block with holley 4 barrel , 4 speed with positraction . man that was a fun car !!!!

Great color, stance, engine, wheels.  Oh what the heck, I like it all!  With some steelies and dog dishes would that be the ultimate sleeper!
