    Busy Winter workin on my Nova

    Well I finally have it about done. Went from a 408 sbc to a 496 bbc. Rewired it, New guages, Wheels, Tires, Shifter, Hood (still needs painted) and installed a grille in the glass nose. Been a real busy winter but worth it, I think.













    I am really glad I didnt sell or trade it off in the fall!

    Looks good Josh. I think you're really gonna like the torque of that big block.

    Thanks guys! I am pretty happy with how its turning out. I am hoping the 496 will be more consistant and a little faster than the 408.
