Love to see pics of your Nova by the way. I'm working on a ground up restoration of a '69 El Camino SS 396 4spd. It was my father in laws car. He started the restoration but passed before he was able to finish it. My wife and I bought it from his estate, we just want to see it finished.
Lots of smoke up this way from multiple fires, we have had visibility from one to five miles for a month. Roseburg is a little better. Have fun floating the Umpqua and drinking wine. I need to take some photos of the Nova next time I take it out. Bought it new in 1970.

I worked at a supermarket in 1969. Every afternoon a guy would drive up delivering the daily newspapers. He drove a green '69 Elco SS. Used to rattle the windows of the market. My only regret in buying my Nova is that I didn't spring the extra $200 for a big block.
