    69 Valiant Aka NOT A NOVA

    Bought this car a few years ago.I've been sick and broke!It's taking me a long time to do make some changes!The 1st is a bigger radiator.The Texas heat is hard to cruise in.

    Been getting a little bit done on mine but very little. Got to put at least one day a week aside just for my car and lock the doors on the shop! And no, locking them to keep others out and not me in....

    The new engine looks really nice. It's always fun to follow projects. Are you going for a full restoration?

    Nice looking car man!! Had a 69 Valiant years ago....kept coming back like a bad penny. Sold it 3 times lol. First buyer bought it on a note and got behind so he brought it back (I like those kinds), Second buyer kept it but sold it to someone else who later left it on the side of the road. A cop buddy called me about it being out there (still in my name) so I picked it up and called the second buyer and that's when I found out he had sold it. He laughed and said it's a good penny when you can keep on using it. It still ran good and so I cleaned it up one more time and it didn't come back anymore
    lol.Ive had friends get called from a impound yard after selling a car.
