GM Classics January 2012 News Letter [image]
February Edition
February 13, 2012

Dear GM & Nova Enthusiast,

      We just got back from our second show of the year in Nashville. Both shows were packed! The Stones River show had over 100 outdoor spaces this year; couple this with morning temps in the low 50s, the parking lot was crowded by 6am! Last year it was about 30 degrees and the outdoor spaces were still full. Who imagined an outdoor swap meet in the winter? Lucky for us, our spaces were inside! We enjoyed the opportunity to meet many of our customers face to face and deliver some parts to beat the shipping costs. Check our events page for our upcoming shows.

     We stopped by the American Pickers new Nashville store for a quick tour. They had some nice stuff but it was not cheap!  In this month's giveaway we have a Picker's t-shirt straight form the store. This and other items will go to one lucky person who makes a purchase this month!  The more instances you purchase the more chances you have to win! 

 

      While in Nashville I picked up a Life magazine from October 8th 1971 that had six 1972 Novas on the cover. The title reads "How is the economy doing?" The story inside goes on to tell about how new car sales were reacting to President Nixon's 90 day emergency treatment for the ailing economy, which was half over by this time. Prices were fixed and the tax on imports was increased to 10%; Nixon had gone to great lengths to coax the U.S. consumer into spending more of his money on American cars. Detroit said it could be the first 10 million dollar year ever!

      I do not remember any hardships back in `72 when I was 11 years old but I am sure we had some along with everyone else. This scenario is not much different than today's economy: all of us are very fortunate to still be enjoying our old cars!


      Another paragraph explains that consumers were buying cheaper cars, paying with cash! I was only 11 years old at this time and perhaps my Grandfather bought a new `72 Nova just for this reason! It was a 6 cyl automatic, no PS, AC or even radio!

     View photos and documentation of the `72.

      I can remember a little toy dog on the package tray bobbing its head up and down as my Grandpa gave her gas on the expressway only to let off, let-r-drop 15 miles an hour and then hit it again. If it was a V8 I would have had whiplash! It was a privilege to own this `72 as my first Nova. Currently it resides not too far from me but now with very wide tires on the back.  

 

      Getting car parts for Valentines day?  Better hurry! We always sell a lot of gift certificates for this holiday, so don't be left out! Keep those orders coming because each time you purchase in the month of February your name goes in the hat for this month's giveaway!

Sincerely,

Your GM Classics Crew

My 1965 SS Nova started out as a pile of parts and a totally disassembled car. It was a project that someone started and didn't finish. A friend of mine helped me pick the car up, it was a good thing my dad worked nights, the car came with parts from two parts cars. I totally filled my dad's garage with all the parts. There were parts everywhere!... Read more at Jeff Fugate's Featured Nova page.
