Ya it was painted about a year ago... I hope the residue isn't too baked on! Hay Tony - that moniker may stick.

How's my PR friend doing? You should have kept your TC screen name over here. The pic gave it away, all though it took a minute to sink in...

I should have kept the El Camino but needed something with more people room. I replaced it with a Colorado Crew Cab 4x4 which has turned out to be a great small truck. After Oct my daughter will be driving herself to school in the wifes Impala and the wife and I will switch off between the Colorado and the Nova.

Hi Phil - When we moved to SJ I had a white '96 2500 and a white '90 Dodge. I got rid of the 2500 and got the white '69 ragtop and a white '90 F150. Then got rid of the dodge and got a blue Malibu, got rid of it and the F150 and got a red 2000 Impala and white '86 El Camino. Now we have a red Colorado, Impala, Nova and of course the white '69 Camaro. I'll push for a blue Camaro in 2008 or 2009

LOL, Carried the screen name from stevesnovasite. Know what? The Nova is the first of my project cars, which my Wife enjoys driving. She sure likes the Camaro, but says it draws too much attention on the street.

I thought I'd bring this back to life and post some progress pic's... Today, I got the grill all together, worked on the interior some (steering wheel, new ignition and door locks, fixed the drivers door window regulator, pulled the drivers door off and replaced the hing pins and bushing) and I've already put the trunk in order with a new seal and a good cleaning. Swapped the black ralleys with some silver ones and derby caps. Also did an initial cleaning under the hood but don't have money for valve covers right now so real detailing will wait... I'll try to take a few more pic's to show progress. It's coming along and so far less than $400 spent (mostly on grill trim parts...)

Nice find! Bet your garage is the best filled one in your neighborhood! I agree, next car purchase is blue and your set for the 4th!

Thanks Derek - I like them, the guy down the street has a Cameo pickup and a '65 Vette in his garage so to most it's a toss up...
