I just read my last post on the Nova. "Rags to Riches..." I wrote that before I moved to Minnesota 4 years ago. I'm sick of waiting for the "right" time to get stuff done. I'm going to get my Trans Am together and then dig into the Nova. I'll do it just about like the "Rags to Riches..." post and throw it together so I can drive it before summer's over this year.I'm also going to get Big Blue back on the road too. I may need it to pull a trailer with the Nova on. I'm just going to get my stuff together this summer! I'm tired of putting it off! This car is going to be a rock solid driver even if it looks like something from the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the Road Warrior!

UPDATE: 3/8/2012
I went to work today and told my boss (Brad) about my plans for my Nova and my blog-post to go with. I told him I was going to pile into my garage works when I got the time and warmer weather. He started work on his Studabaker pick-up again today, also. He said "WE are building hot-rods this summer" after I told him I'll do it when I could. He made it sound like he was offering shop space to me. If that's so, I know I'm going to get the Nova on the road this summer! I know he would bend over backwards to help me get it done, he's the best boss I ever worked for! He's also planning on getting his '56 Chevy in the shop to rebuild it, this summer too! I'll probably work a "labor for shop-space" trade out with him. If I do get it in the shop, or at least to the shop, I know it will get glass blasted and put together better than I was planning, but hey, I'm not going to pass up any chances! With Brad's help and his motivational drive, I'm going to get it done!

Having a dedicated work space will keep things moving along. Sounds like you;ve done quite a bit to the body already. Don't let time get you down. The reality is things always take longer than you think. Its gonna be one sweet muscle car though. PS Get Brad to post pics of his Studebaker build.
