Default [Pic] Awesome Nova from HorsepowerTV

Not mine - wish it were

I usually go for the plain look, but this one has always stuck in my mind since I first saw it on TV

That is one wild paint job...I normally like them a little more sedate than that one...but with that said WOW I would love that car.

It is not paint. It is printed vinyl.

Here is another picture (I was going to post it with the first one, but the picture was huge and took some time to resize)

I like the looks, but the price is very high (about equivalent to a similar paint job). The 'sticker' part I'm not comfortable with yet - would have to see one in person and its long term durability.

It just doesn't seem to run to it's full potential, to date best time is 10.20. I really thought this car would run well into the 9's.

Cool Re: [Pic] Awesome Nova from HorsepowerTV

I wonder how much that sticker job costs? They wanted $300 to do my cowl hood.

I think I remember them saying it costs around $5000 for the sticker job. You couldnt get a paint job like for that money.

aaaarrrrrgggghhhh...

70's flashback..

it looked pretty cool without the sticker, but i suppose the company that made it is an advertiser, so they kind of had to put it on there..

Yeah I actually think the all solid black paint job looked better.

Shoot I think the car looked better before they cut it all up.
