some style left

I have to agree that some of the 70 stuff didn't look as good, but you still could work on them and build them up, not like todays cars.. My 1977 concours nova hatchback with its little underpowered 305and tall 2.56 gears was only made for the open road. But now it has 355 power, 200 4r overdrive tranny and 3.73 gears. It still came with a real nice interior and style. No more nova's. The next generation will not be rebuilding the cars as we know it. That is why you are seeing more older car being found and redone then you saw fourty years ago.
