"My father gave me this 1969 Chevy Nova 25 years ago and have spent countless hours rebuilding it in my shop. My goal was to create a Pro Street car that my father and I could enjoy driving together. It has been a labor of love, and eventually I will pass it down to my grandson Blake so we can create memories that will last a lifetime"
