Rags To Riches, well it's still going to be a rag, LOL!

By Crazyfast79TA

Filed under: 1971 Chevrolet Nova (Dream Car)

My life has taken a pleasantly unexpected turn. I've fallen in love with somebody that is the one I want to stay with. The thing is, she lives in Minnesota and wants to stay there. I went there and I don't blame her. I've made up my mind to move to Minnesota to be with Michelle. So I'm changing my plans for my cars. I am still putting the 400 in my Trans Am but I'm packing the new stuff up and saving that project for later. The Nova is just a shell right now with gobs of parts that all need completely refurbished. I want the car to be A-1 when it's done, but I've got more important things to do right now. I'm going to assemble the body the way the parts are now (all rusty and crusty) and get the drive-train put together along with the chassis. I'm going to get this thing road-worthy and DRIVE it to Minnesota! I'll get all the lights working and make sure the wipers work too. I'm not going to worry about a heater or interior. It just has to be drivable. That in itself is going to be exciting! It's going to look like something from "Mad Max" on the hi-way. I don't care! I'm driving it there and trucking the parts in a U-Haul later. I'll probably have to get the biggest truck they have that you don't need a CDL to drive to take all my parts and tools up there in. She's got a garage there, but the Nova and it's parts alone would fill it up, so I'll build a shed for my stuff. It's just going to be my Nova and Trans Am parked in there along with her Bonneville. The cool thing about this woman is that she wants to help me with my plans! She wants me there bad and she's got me hooked! So I'm going to slam this car together and hit the road this summer!

That was almost four years ago. Since then I've moved to Minnesota, got a good job, moved all my stuff up here (2 years worth of moving) packed the garage full, got other vehicles (that of course needed work), cleared out a little room in the garage to work on my T/A, got involved in Church, tending to my new family (that sometimes I think hate me) and try my best to be the best person I can be.
