My project outside of my 1985 monte se is my 1971 nova ss, build a lq4/80e for it while rebuilding the body, so far I've put new floor pans, quarters, wheel housings, trunk pan, drop offs, and tail pan in it. Lots to do!
There are a lot of 68-72 Nova guys still out there in the prime 50-65 age range (that had one in high school, before they got married, etc) and not many good '68-72 Novas left. With an LS/4L80 build, you can't go wrong as a place to store money.
Make it nice and people will be offering you money for it where ever you go.
