About “Tubby”

this was my dads dream car as he had always had small tire novas ect.. When he was a kid and in late 60s he saw a nova funny car and said he would love to have one when he grew up...

He had a 1969 nova and it was a small tire car with 1/4s cut out ect... in 1992 he sold that and found this 1970 in 1993 and bought it as a Rolling Chassis and built the motor/trans ect...

About “Saphire”

Traded my 1971 factory SS bench seat 4 speed Nova for cash and a 1968 Camaro rolling chassis. At first I bit off more than I could chew having never done a car from the ground up. With the help of some friends and some much needed support from my wife it took about ten years to complete. People said that I would never finish the car...Well all I have to say to them is thanks for making me want to do it more!!
