Here are the 3 sepia photos from post # 2646 as regular photos, and a few new ones.

Enjoy.

That's a sweet Model T.

I used to own a Nova, and I drove cars at an exotic car auction. And after a day of jumping between Rolls Royces, Corvettes etc, I was still happy to get back in the Nova.

For some reason, everyone likes that Nova photo.

Now for some more.

I'm a car fan, but not an expert; if I identify a car incorrectly, please tell me.

1.) An old Plymouth, probably 1955 or so.
2.) A sleeper Jeep; it has a small block Chevy in it.
3.) The owner of this gorgeous Caddy said it is a Pierre Cardin edition. I think it is.
4.) How can I forget the Thunderbird fans? I think this one is '57.
5.) A 442 Olds; I'm not sure of the year. Isn't it nice?
6.) A 1955 Chevy.

Do you guys and gals want to see some engine shots?

Mike

I would! Oh man that 442 makes me drool. My neighbor built a 442 coupe, and when he first finished it, there where tire marks for a block in both directions from his driveway.

86-91 500 or 560SEC widebody AMG, likely 560

Almost everyone has owned, known of or ridden in a Nova. So we all have memories associated with them. I think ones like you posted are the most iconic Nova body style.

Here are some engine photos.

I forget which engines were in which particular cars, but I remember the 454/360 was in a Chevelle, and the Boss 302 speaks for itself.

I think the pink 6 cylinder was in a Ford.

I also photograph people.

Enjoy.

Mike

Looks like the illegitimate offspring of a 1st gen Scion TC and a SkyLine.
