The Nova's 1st car show

These are pics from the Olympia Beatniks Car Show in Pasco on Saturday.  As you can see, the Nova won a trophy!  I had many compliments on the cleanup work I have done with the paint job, and several people told me that they haven’t seen a Nova in original condition that was as nice as mine!  Needless to say I am very excited for the next car show I will be attending, which will be sometime in April.

 

The cool part is that Saturday would have been Lisa’s Grandmother Juanita’s 101st birthday.  Seeing how she was the owner of the car before me, it made for a nice day.

You need to update the sidebar pic now, to read "AWARD WINNING 1971 NOVA!" or something like that!

Congrats to you AND the paint job!

That is a special conicidence! And a question since you're so skilled in this area: What do you recommend for cleaning a fabric interior?

Aah, Heidi stole my remark. I was also going to point out Lex's crosseyedness.
You forgot to mention that dad's car won a trophy as well. You both did very well.

CONGRATULATIONS! That has got to make you feel pretty darn good? Especially with all the hard work you've put into making the Nova ship shape.
