GM Classics May 2012 News Letter [image]
May Edition
25 May, 2012

Dear GM & Nova Enthusiast,

      The Carlisle swap meet at the end of April had a decent crowd, it was great to meet many of you face to face. The weather was fairly co-operative; there was some rain over night and good temperatures during the day, somehow we dodged any real bad weather! Ten inches of snow fell in the surrounding states the day before we arrived!


      Also at the show, we had a nice polished alternator stolen from our booth, our swap-meet neighbors selling antiques lost a $1,200.00 item, and a dealer lost a trailer as well as $13,000 dollars worth of Chevelle & Camaro inventory!  The latter made the local news. It is sad you cannot set up to meet your customers and deliver parts without something disappearing!  I think we were lucky in that our only loss was the $200.00 alternator.  


      Onto brighter things, last week we had the opportunity to drive 3 hours east from Louisville to West Liberty, Ky to visit Fast Eddies Nova salvage yard.  I had met Eddie years ago at a swap meet but never had time to go see the sight!  The sight to see is 75 Novas in one salvage yard with little else. Yes, all Novas or the occasional and somewhat equal Pontiac. Eddie's is mowed and weed-eated enough that you can shop with shorts on - not many junk yards are like this!  Eddie has been into Novas for 15 years and has accumulated literally tons of Nova stuff!  He also rebuilds 4 speed transmissions. The hospitality Eddie showed us was awesome as was the tour.  Here at Chevy 2 Only & GM Classics we have parted out over 400 Novas but to see a quantity of 75 Novas in one spot was just shy of a National Convention!   


      While at Eddie's we took many photos of Fast Eddies Nova salvage yard. Included in these photos are some shots of the town of West Liberty that is rebuilding after the March tornadoes hit the town.  It passed within a mile of Eddies place!  If you would like to contact Eddie feel free to do so at 606-522-4986 (Note:  Eddie does not ship parts!  If you want something you will have to visit his place, it is a beautiful scenic area, and you will enjoy the ride!)


      Also included in this newsletter are photos of the Nova Mini National Convention in Old Town, FL March 2,3 of this year.


      The 66 Headlight bezels are now in stock, USA made and the overseas ones. Both have been selling well! 


      The National Nova Convention is coming up soon: July 19-21 in Gettysburg, PA. Place your orders early because space will be limited for free delivery!

From the cowl tag, this 1963 Chevy II Super Sport started life on the third week of December 1962 in Oakland, CA.
