'72 Nova SS • Gordon Barry • Norco, CA Having just parted with his '63 split-window Corvette in 1972, Gordon Barry was on the rebound, so it's not too surprising that shortly after this '72 Nova in a similar shade of silver caught his eye. He drove it daily until an accident in 1984 put it out of commission. Gordon got part of the way through the repairs, but got sidetracked and the Nova has been on the back burner ever since. Now that he's at a point in his life where he has time to work on it again, Gordon is ready to get it back in shape. The Nova is a primo candidate for resto too; at 115K miles, it's stone stock, has never been apart, and doesn't leak a drop of oil.

'65 Impala Steve Durk Edwardsville, PA Steve Durk first saw this Impala sitting by a park he used to play in when he was 11. He fell in love with it and always used to talk to the owner when he saw him. When Steve turned 16, he of course tried to talk the owner out of the Impala, but he was also in love with it and wouldn't sell. Fast-forward quite a few years and the owner died. Steve was able to purchase the Impy from the estate, ensuring it went to the right home. Currently it's undergoing a full restoration with very piece of the car getting attention to bring to brand-new standards.
