Dear GM & Nova Enthusiast,
Wow is it wet where you are? Like most of the country, we have had way too much rain, not to mention all the bad storms, we hope you and your families are safe!
The Carlisle swap meet this past week had a great crowd, nice to meet many of you face to face. We had reports of quite a few rare and hard to find parts being purchased. It is nice to see that stuff is still around. Carlisle weather was pretty cooperative this time, just a bit of rain over night and good temperatures during the day.
As of today we test fitted the new `66 Nova headlight bezel (again) tooling has been slow but it will be worth the wait, we hope to have these available by the end of the year.
If you follow our NEW ITEMS link on our Chevy Nova Online Store you would have seen we now have available: 3 speed manual transmission linkage rubber grommet/bushings, 71-72 bench set foam and 62-63 4 lug rear end flange gaskets.
Project 65 SS is progressing. It is nice to have a new powder coated 12 bolt rear end arrive in a wood crate ready to bolt in. We could not resist writing "FRA-GIL-E" on the crate, and as you can see no leg lamp was inside! So far our new dropped leaf springs appear to be a go! After experimenting with the leaf spring bushings and width of the reproduction leaf spring eyes in general we have released new leaf spring spacers. Although this has not been a problem in the past, we think the leaf springs & rear suspension would benefit from being firmly told where to stay!
Our upcoming shows are the National Nova Convention in Bowling Green, KY & the Street Rod Nats in Louisville, KY. The convention is always great, just seeing that many Novas in one place is a cool thing! Last year was the first year the Street Rod Nats opened up to Muscle cars and it was a huge success. Plus, an added benefit, all the dealers get to display indoors within the chilly air conditioning! Get your orders in now for these upcoming events!
Have a great week and keep it between the ditches!
