I’m sure you all remember the phrase "basket case".  This car was definitely that.  No engine, no seats, and the chrome trim was missing.  That is what Bruce started with.  But the help of his brother-in-law, Rich Ralstin, who by the way built the engine for Bruce, they were able to put together one of the most beautiful Nova’s I’ve seen.  Every detail is on the money.  All the work was done by them except for the paint and upholstery. This is definitely a home built car.

Bruce has owned his car for 7 years.  He finished the restoration 3 years ago, and then joined the Cal-Rods.  He takes his car to many car shows and has won numerous awards.  Check the Nova out when you get the chance and notice the detail; I think you will be amazed.  Thanks for being a Cal-Rod!
