Steve glad you decided to join us. And before Beretta posts asking for pics, I'll beat him to it. We need a few pics of that Nova down in the "Show Your Stuff" section so these guys can see what a 25.2 car looks like. If you need help with pics, give me a call and I'll see if I can get you pointed in the right direction.

Oh, and welcome to MotorsportsVillage.com..... again!! ;-)

Steve, Beretta, gearhead1011, WR169 all use photobucket so they can tell you what needs to be done with the photobucket stuff. If you already have the pics on photobucket, I can show you how to link to them here on the site so they show up in a post. Gimmie a call some time this weekend if you want and you can come over here and I'll walk you through it. Nothing like having a personal tutor, hey! ;-)

Fellows as far as the spelling issue goes, Firefox and Opera browsers are free and both have a built in spell check so there's no excuse there! ;-) Just an FYI for ya on that one!

I'm going to spill the beans so to speak on Steve. His dad, Robert, is about 6 or 7 years older than me but I remember him from back in the mid 1960s. He had a red 1963 Chevy Impala with a 425HP 409 eingine with a 4 speed. That engine was built by Linkletters Speed Shop in Staunton, Va, and was a real mover at the time. Reason this sticks in my memory so well is that I also had a red 1963 Impala with a 409 and 4 speed but mine was the 340HP version with a hydraulic cam and single Rochester 4 barrel. I lost track of Robert a long time ago but met up with him again about 13 or 14 years ago when I bought an 8" converter from Steve that was advertised in the local trader paper. And BTW, that converter is in my Camaro right now! Got a chance to talk to Robert again that day but haven't seen him since.

Ennywho, Steve and I have somewhat of a link to the past through his Dad, Robert.
