One beautifu car. Don't shoot me for this, but back in the 70's I would have taken a Nova over an Acadian or Ventura any day. I remember that my twin friends were given a new 76 ventura 2dr for turning 16 and not smoking, my thoughy was, "I would have asked for a Nova". But now, having "grown up" I'd not say that anymore!
again, a gorgeous car!

Guys, I've been so busy the last couple of days I haven't had a chance to post that I met the current owner, and according to him, also the last person who will ever own this car, this past Saturday night. Super nice guy, says the car will never leave Canada now that he has it, in fact, he plans to be buried in it! Pics and story to follow!
These are the pics I took last Sat. night. Sorry for the quality, just had my Blackberry camera.
Owner's name is Glen and he resides in Mississauga. Gave him a CP card and encouraged him to check us out. He told me he had been looking for a nice Nova SS for a couple of years when a friend of his told him this was listed on the Scotti site. The car was also advertised in Hemmings at the time. They headed up to Montreal to check the car out and literally made the deal as someone was on the phone from the states trying to buy the car, so by the skin of it's teeth, the car just managed to stay in Canada. In fact, even after the sale was completed, the prospective purchaser still wanted to come up and see the car. Not wanting to take any chances and temp fate, Glen said no way, had the car covered up and moved out of the showroom so no one would get any ideas!
He has only had the car a couple of weeks and can't get over the quality and originality - all original floors, trunk, etc. It truly is stunning when you see it in person. As I said earlier, Glen says he plans to be buried in this car so no worries about it ever leaving the Great White North now.
I think he will be coming out to the Queensway Cruise for the remainder of the season so any of you in the area, come check it out!
