Over the years I've had several muscle cars including two 70 Novas, a 72, a 73, a 74 and my latest go,.. a 77 SS 4-speed car. I found out about it a few years ago at a car show. Under a picture of a clean, straight 77 SS Nova was the phrase "Free to good home". Mama didn't raise no fool, I tracked the owner down and asked. He told me it was just as the picture showed except it had no motor or trans. and no back seat. Good enough, I thought, we signed it into my name and went to pick it up right from there. When I saw it for the first time, it was in a chicken coupe. I thought to myself, it's a good thing this is free, or I'd be p!$$ed off right now! The front clip wasn't bolted on the car, just sitting there, no grill, headlights, front bumper, etc. 4 flat tires no two were the same. You get the idea. I was mad until a week later someone gave me a complete 78 with no title just to clean out their yard. A little later a friend was selling an M-20 muncie for $100. At the same time another friend had a brand new 402 BB for $1200. The rest is history. I don't have any good pictures right now, but I'll try to get some soon.

Well than a formal welcome will be in order :waving:
Don't you just love it when the photo doesn't represent the car in its current condition, kinda like internet dating :) Sounds like it is coming together nicely though. A BB 4 speed car is going to give you lots of SPM (smiles per mile) Post some photos when you can.

In two days I'm going to bring him home. I'll post some pics of the trip. He's in Florida right now at my folks house.
