that is one heck of an old parked car. just think of the stories it could tell.four intact hubcaps with matching whitewalls boggles the mind.
Yeah Tony, this one's been well taken care of despite the body damage I see in some of the photos. A collector would find this car to be an easy restoration project forsure. My MIL had one of these until my wife totalled it in a traffic accident. Of all the Nova models offered, I don't seem to recall this one. I've seen the Concours and the camper models, but never a Medalist edition! You guys in Oregon have all the luck when it comes to old cars in their natural state. All I see here in Florida are trailer queens and cars driven to and from the local car shows. BTW, did you get the pics of the jetliner I sent you? This thing is in Oregon parked in a wooded area of the state.I thought of you and Ben when I came across it a few days ago. Keep 'em comin'! Iuse pieces of them in my artwork. Great find!
Even in OR. I'll bet the sub-frames rotted-out on these! These were really lack-luster cars- no guts..no character (Sorry, Cap'n!) and they didn't age well. This generation of Nova is better-off forgotten..... You've heard of The Bard Of Avon? Well "Nova" spelled backwards is "Avon"- I call this The Turd Of Avon :D
It's okay Don, just making an observation about this particular car. The fact that rust is an issue only makes these cars all the more rare. Add in the fact that street rodders covet the the very subframes you mentioned to improve the ride and handling of some older GM cars as well, and you have the recipe for one rare automobile. BTW, I'm getting ready to lay out a fishbowl! The photo you sent me gave me enough piecesto begin the process after I fix a perspective issue with the '56 Ford fantasy OPC. I noticed it after I sketched part of the second house that you'll see in the background.Gotta get stirrin' around, Mother wants to go shopping later. Catcha later!
Ouch! did someone pour brake cleaner on the trunk?
