Default just bought my first car at age 16

yup i am 16 and just bought a 72 nova from california not completely rust free but not to bad. it has a 8.5 inch 10 bolt without a motor and trans so this is my first car and i am excited to work on it. I have a 454 30 over with head work and a 500 inch cam, hoping that my th 350 with a manual reverse shift valve body will hold up. glad to be a nova owner and thanks everybody for restoring novas and enjoying them.

Be careful, but have fun! Fortunately and unfortunately things are not the same as when I started driving! Welcome to the board!

What's Up Brother! I remember my first car! One word of advice, before you go tearing into your car in the hopes of building your dream car, make sure you plan everything out first. I did that to my first car and I had to replace a lot of stuff that I had ripped out! LOL!

Big Dave can send you a file that will help get that 454 installed in your 72. I ran a th350 in stock form behind a BB for 17 years without any problems. Just be careful with all that power in such a light car, we would like to have you around for a few years

My first hotrod that I built was a 325 hp, 327 in a 64 Chevelle. I know what I did in that car, I hope you don't do HALF the stuff I did with your car! Parts are so much harder to find now.
