That tells me the weather has improved in your area enough where we should be expecting to see pics of yours on the road, right??
( hoping your getting close)

My Camaro preservation and re-assembly efforts have been delayed (probably until past July).   Two weeks ago, I decided I needed to *finish* the restoration of a '57 Nomad (that was delayed after most body work completed around 20 yrs ago.. Smiley ).   My goal is to drive it to the Chevrolet Nomad Association (CNA) Convention in Chattanooga TN in mid July.. Smiley
and it's going to be EVERY DAY between now and then trying to meet that goal.  I've got a few pix made the past couple of weeks on Photobucket if you want to take a look.. Smiley

Two weeks into it..   13 weeks to go...  Smiley
What in particular are you looking for when you come to Charlotte?

Complete interior kit (red/black), front end rebuild kit, all suspension bushings, body mounting rubber, and a few odds and ends, although I am still sorting thru and itemizing all the parts I have from 20 yrs ago.. Smiley   Fortunately I have new glass and all my chrome was redone back then... and I have lots of NOS parts to use in reassembly.

Hey Gary, I had a 57 Nomad back in the 70's. 327/4 spd Muncie 488's. What a beast to drive. Always dreamed of another shoebox, but now I don't think it's going to happen. Still in possession of a Hurst Competition Plus shifter I bought in 1973 that was in the Nomad. Couldn't part with it. I'm thinking it may be time to part with it. Amazing what they cost these days. The entire shifter including linkage rods, etc, cost me $62.50 back then. Now they are so expensive, they have to sell them in halves: shifter, and then rod kit.

Jimmy that is a very similar set up I had in my 55. I ended up running the 327, M21, and I am guessing it is a 4:10 in my 64 C/10, great combo but now I need to be able to stop the beast so looking at suspension and brake packages, from Scotts Hot rods and customs. All square tube front cross members and tig welded, everything made or sourced in the USA. Not cheap but you get what you pay for, many options to customize it to your needs/wants.
I just wanted to agree with you on the 327 4 speed comments, awesome set up.

I fell in love with Nomads when I saw my first one (matador red '57) in 1968.. and I've wanted one like it every since.  I bought this one in '88, worked on it 5 yrs, then let work, travel, family and other projects shove it to the side..  now it's time to JUST DO IT..  Smiley..
