These are pictures of of my first car, our family's old 1972 Nova. My parents gave me this car when I was just old enough to drive. I could either have this old car (did not run) or they would buy me a running used car. I decided to keep this one!  Good choice, now there are few of them and I get offers to buy it every day!It started life with a THM350 transmission and V8 307 small-block with a 2V Rochester carb. I have replaced that with a THM 700R4 transmission and V8 305 with a TBI fuel injection system. The whole story can be found here. will get about 26 MPG on the highway, but requires premium octane gas because of the high compression. Not too bad for a V8 car from the 70's!
