Cars Profile

About me and my passion for cars

Been around cars my whole life, dad got me envolved when I was young and the love is still there. My first car was a 70 nova and it will always be my first love. All my friends call me Johnny Nova and for good reasons, I have had almost every year made at least once through out the years. The first one was bought, my senior year from grand mother and she had bought it new in 1970 had fifty thousand miles on it, when I got it, well you know what happens when you are a crazy car guy and your daddy is an old drag racer, you start out changing things and then go all out and get the bug! I am currently working on my next nova a 1976, had to sell my 71 because of a divorce but luckly I had this 76 hangin around, she didn't think it was worth anything, and no it's not my 71 but hey it a toy and its coming around. I bought it to be a roundy round car and decided it was in to good of shape to tear up, so it started to be a small block street car, now its a mini tubbed,sub framed, 8 point cage, big block, street/strip car, its in the the early stages, but like my dad said its the building them that makes the fun and the satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself!
