I built the car at home in my shop over the course of many years with the help of family and friends. The original plan was to bring my son home in a Nova like my parents did when I was born but as the story goes "life" had other plans (marriage, started a business, bought a home, etc.) so the car wasn't finished in time for my son to come home in it as intended. I did however finish it in time for his high school senior project in which he produced a car show on his school campus (the first ever). All in all, it's been worhwhile, rewarding, challenging and fun being able to stay true to my passion of playing with Chevys.
