  • Out with the old, in with the older…

    So what the hell is going on?  Where’s the Vette?  Got rid of it.  Wanted something that “was complete” and didnt need as much fabrication and time that my ’88 Corvette needed.  I scoured one of my favorite sites RacingJunk.com and found a ’67 Chevy II Nova, 2×3 mandrel bent backhalf, Mustang II front clip, glass fenders, hood and decklid, all electronics, driveshaft, fuel system included.  All it needed was a motor/trans.  Currently it sits on 32×14 rear Monocoque wheels and the standard Monocoque front skinnies.  I am going to leave the wheels the same since I havent seen these at any local burger stand and I kinda like the old school wheels.   My daughter and I set out on this 600 mile journey to Oklahoma to pick it up.  I was willing to drive pretty much anywhere in the USA for the right car.  Well this bad boy is ready to roll.  Its been a race car for many years, been beat on but now it’ll have an easier life.  I’ll drag race it once in a while but for the most part, it will enjoy the quiet life of burger stand auto meets, swap meets and cruises.

    Here’s some pics of the ’67 Chevy II..
