When i got home and from driving my car back from astora, OR. we were so bushed we went right into the house n past out.
The next day i realized i had left the bill of sail and the title in the backseat ...
and after i popped the trunk i realized that the battery was sitting on what i thought was 3 coat hangers but turns out its a wal mart battery mount thingy. i didnt kno those existed but all it really does is give the battery something sit on, it could have dropped out the bottom of the car at anytime
:'(Wasnt able to get the Nova because it's too muddy out and I didnt want to dig up the lot that its sitting on so I'll wait until the ground hardens up a little. I did get the fenders out of storage and started work on them, I got all the little holes welded up and ground down and I still have a ringing in my ears.(Note to self: always wear ear plugs when useing a grinder)
As long as it doesnt snow tomorrow (crossing fingers) it looks like I will be able to work on the nova, first thing I gotta do is pull the drivers side head off and see wtf is in cyl. #5, when I pulled the spark plug out to get the exhaust manifold off last fall, the ground tab was beat down to the electrode.
Got the nova inside the machine shop my dad works at and took the head off and the piston is all beat to hell but I dont think its cracked or anything so it should still be ok, it was a little rock in the cylinder, I guess it's from the cinder block that I had holding the tarp onto the engine when it was out of the car.
I'll have pictures tomorrow.

lol, the whole car is covered with silver paint from when I tried to smack the cap off of a can of paint on the edge of the firewall and the top of the can exploded so I figured a little more wouldnt hurt.
