1971 Chevy Nova...My First Car
Posted by Classic Plastic on Saturday, March 10, 2018 1:48 PM

This is an actual photo of my first car. 350, 3-speed, 2 barrel, single exhaust. I had just turned 16. The car had 15,000 miles on it. Previously totalled, bought and re-built by a friend of mine. I paid him $1700! Wish I still had it..... Feel free to post your first cars and replicated models. Thanks for looking!

Sorry to say, but your Photobucket is not working.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Thank you for fixing those.  That is one really nice Nova, actually I mean two really nice Novas.

I agree with the above comments. Nice ride, especially for a first car, and good looking replica. Very cool!
