Searching for parts

Ok, last Saturday my buddy had his 74 Nova parked at a car show(it's a work in progress). He got back from the restroom and found a huge dent in his fender. The people around him said that a girl had ran into it with a golf cart and took off. Well, here in Idaho there seems to be a major lack of Nova parts laying around. 0 in the junkyards. So if anybody has one in my area please e-mail me. Or better yet, does anyone know how to convert the front grill over to the 68-72 style? Well thanks, hope to hear from somebody......

And of course those people didn't think to ask her to stick around or get a name and number for you?? A guy I know took a 65 Impala to a CAR SHOW and some guy took a screw driver to this guys Grill and knocked out a row of bars, the people around held the guy for security and the guy said he was in the same class and wanted to beat the guy out of the trophy?????? That grill cost the Dumb ***** a bundle and he's been band from attening shows for the next 5 years!! He's not even allowed to be on the grounds of the shows.

I had a 74 Nova myself until about 5 years ago when I wrecked it. Now my dad has it and is restifying it. He is having the same trouble with finding parts. Most aftermarket companies make parts for 62-72's and then for 75-79's. For some reason, they make very little for 73-74's. GM Restoration Parts does make repro fenders, but they run about $300 each. Good luck, buddy.

Yeah, you guys thought that ^ was bad......check out the current pic of his car in my album. He went to the Winnemucca car show last weekend, and some lady hit his car while he was gone. It was parked at his friends house, along side the street. We suspect that she whipped around the corner too fast, went into the other lane and SMACK! right into his car. His car skidded a good 10 yards into the driveway. Then she somehow got her car around the block and proceded to strip the plates off and remove all her personal info. Only problem is, she left one of her plates in my buddy's grill. The cops then matched the plate too the vin# of the car around the block (a 90's cougar), and found that she left one critical document in her car, a tax return stub. Well, the cops have checked hospitals, her house, etc. and she hasn't turned up yet. She must have hit his nova just right because the exterior of her car didn't look as bad as you'd think. We told him that women are just getting back at him.
