Red face Help, Please

I've purchased a 1979 Chevy Nova 2-door and have started to dimantle the front end. I was thinking of doing a frame off resto, but a friend of mine told me that that car does not have the traditional frame it has a "subframe". This is my first time trying to work on a car in a really detailed way and I am realitively new to the world of cars period. Everything that I am learning is straight out of books and from the kind people on this website. The question is this: If this vehicle has a "subframe" what should be the next step that I take? I wanted to take the body off so that I could check for any cracks in the frame, to replace worn bushings, and to have it prepped for paint and rust protection.
