Hello! This past Tuesday (11/1/22) I purchased a '66 Nova 2 and am already feeling like I should sell it. I bought it because it's beautiful and I wanted to do something "crazy" for once in my life. But I know nothing about cars and am wondering what's "normal" about my Nova and what might be the eventual death of me. Last time I started it, it lurched into reverse so much so that the tires squealed. The brakes also started squeaking the last time I drove it, and every time I've started it, it spews black stuff out of the exhaust pipe. When in drive, it moves forward without my pressing the accelerator, so much so that I worry it's too much for the brakes. Feels kind of possessed... I'm scared of this machine, to be honest. I'd like to be less scared, though, and do my best to understand it better before trying to sell it. I had my mechanic neighbor inspect it before I bought it and he said it looked good, but I'm just feeling very unsure about that, not that I own. (My neighbor is currently out of town but I plan on having him look at it again when he returns.) Thanks for any support you can provide!
