Old Member...Back with a Nova

Hey guys,

Old member here, left after being young, dumb and making wrong decisions.

Back with a family, new business, and a 69 Nova hoping to become part of the community again without to much lashback....but we will see what happens.

Some know who it is some dont and will eventually, but for now. Here's the Nova.

1969 434ci (300hp)
shortened 9" detroit locker
Th400
Jesel Valvetrain
750 HP
Magnafuel system
Dart Pro1 heads
Caltracs and Calvert shocks
those are the basics and super clean paint and body work which is what attracted me to this car (should give a hint as to who it is)

Plans for the car are:
New balljoints, tie rod ends, sway bar links and other pieces
Changing transcooler setup
New uni's
New 3 inch exhaust (currently 2.5
Getting rid of MSD and going to ICE ignition
RPM/WOT NOS controller
Figure out an electrical issue with not starting some times
Dyno for NA, possible upgrades for more power then Dyno for spray

"Oh a bit of humour re my car; I was exiting the Melbourne tunnel heading SE burbs, 50kph 2 customers in the car and three next to us and i tried out the new new pulley ratio setup thinking +2psi, lined up next to our convertible and I flattened it, no bull **** it lifted the front wheels both with massive front end twist, the other car is 600hp at the fly, left it like he was parked. I ended up with a blown head gasket a bit more camber. It's in at addicted performance now getting fixed. 18psi it was and just shy of 1000hp. They have ordered a different combo to bring it back into under drive for the street. That is all as of yesterday. This is my first animal in my life to do this, so its all quite amazing."

There are 3 of the Photobucket images I can't see.

I loved the Fathom Green. Was that the original color?

Not original colour, and yes I actually loved that dark green but the panel work and paint quality on the car means I wont be repainting it any time soon.

Welcome back mate. Nice ride too, and love the colour combo.

Have you been for any hectic RIB rides as of late? Ha ha
