First Pictures of the 71′ Nova

 Our Nova as of January 22nd, 2001. This is one of the first pictures I took of the car. We actually purchased it in October, 2000 and since then have added the Corvette Rally Wheels (275×60-15’s on 15×8 with 5″ offset for the rear and 235×60-15’s on 15×7 std offset for the front) and the new D and R Steel Cowl Induction Hood. The offset rear wheels rubbed the shocks and required removal of the upper shock tube cover and still rub the inner fender well.

Another shot of the Nova from the rear. This is with the original bumper, I haven’t installed the new one yet, got to find some replacement bumper brackets first.

Here’s the rear tires, I still need to drop the rear end another inch or two to make it look right”. Competition Engineering chrome J-Bolt slapper bars add a little “bling” to the back!

I assume you’re talking about the picture with the primer on it – that’s STOCK, I hadn’t messed with anything at that point.
