I've got so many other projects going on, but this one is starting to fill my head again. I've got more house projects planned. Michelle is having surgery Monday and I'll be her service butler while she recovers. There's still the upstairs to be remodeled and the bedroom to sheetrock. The trimwork in the bathroom still need done. I need to get a transmission for the S-10 for Jessica. Then there's "Big Blue" to work on. But my head is filled with my Nova. I want a cool old car to drive next summer. Yeah, I still have my Trans Am, but I want a hot rod. One I can run hard and have a little fun with. I know I will eventually have the Nova even nicer than the T/A, but at first I just want a hot rod! Even after I get the Nova all done the way I want it, I'll still drive it hard, but what if I made it a full on "Beater-Beast" first? What if I got all the mechanicals together then just threw the old fenders and doors on it? Or maybe just primer it? Kept the Pontiac Rally wheels on the rear and the Chevy rally wheels on front. No fancy dual exhaust, just the glass-pack mufflers on the headers and left it like that? I know a lot of people would just shake their heads at me. But when I open it up I know their opinions would change! Imagine what it would be like if it looked like the picture at the top of this post and it could safely run low 13's! What do you think?
