Back in the late 60s, my Dad and a friend of his had almost identical red 67 Chevy II Novas. One was a 2 dr post and the other was a hardtop. My Dad's had a 283 and his friend's had a 327. They used to cruise the local strip in our hometown in my Dad's car and elicit drag races. They then would go get his friend's car and proceed to kick some butt. My Dad told that story all the time and that was his favorite car of all of the ones he owned in his life. He was dating my Mom at the time and one night he put it in a ditch while she was with him. He had it repaired but it was never the same, so he sold it. My next dream car is to find one and make a replica of the one he had with pictures I have of it. My first dream car that I finally got 9 months ago after wanting one for 27 years is my 69 Chevelle SS396 L78 coupe with factory Winters aluminum heads and intake. My Dad knew about this dream but never lived to see it to fruition. He would have loved it. I definitely got my love of Chevy/GMs from him!
