Vince what color is that car? It looks like a dark green in the vintage pics and then rally green in yours?

Oh man, those pics are precious. It really gets my blood going when we can go back in the day and see through each one's "window" of the life, lol. Just after I posted, I did a person search of the name the caller gave me today who he traded for the Nova. First person I called- BINGO! He sold it to the guy I got it from. He even had the sales tax receipt in front of him when I called as he had a cop friend who was trying to search down the VIN. How about that? He read the VIN, yes, the same as my car. He gave me an email and said he had more stories and the original add when he tried to sell the car in the "Wheeler Dealer", one of those add mags. printed on newspaper type paper that you see in convenient stores. He said, you know that is a 375 horse car, right? My car had 2 fuel lines, but a curved neck radiator. I always thought it was a 325 car although I have a 375 going back in. He thought there was a story about the original owner had some connections with the dealer and did some shady deal where they swapped out the engine when new, like Yenko did. I do not know and still looking for clues. He said the engine was "tired" when he got it and he put a 402 in it. He believes he scrapped the original engine. Will keep up on this.So this does not interfere with Vince's post, I am copying my two tposts here and putting them in a new one titled: Made contact with some previous owners today

Ralley green the Instamatic pictures left alot to be desired. The inside truck lid has the original color.

Maybe when NCRS site comes up it will help. The search for my Rally Green L78,s original block stopped cold when the 1977 purchaser could not remember who he bought it from in PA. Talking to people there who remember the car back then who cannot remember the owners name is frustrating to say the least. At least I have the original CX trans and rearend and carb.

Well the guy I sold the camaro to is not in Wayne, WV. anymore no phone number. The owner is Mike Taylor who owned  Taylor Contracting in Wayne  US RT 152. I was told he sold the business and owns a couple pawn shops in Prichard, WV. Or he might be in Kentucky. The search goes on....

Good find, I guess we will see what the fair market value is, unless Vince works a deal for it. I would love to see Vince get it back after the work of finding the original parts.

Hey guys I don't have the funds to buy the car,I hope the one that ends up with it gives it a high end restore. The bidding looks a little strange..... it goes from 12K to 42K  ???
