Can't believe you were running a flex fan. I assume you installed a clutch too. My car had flex fan, I changed to stock 7 blade with clutch, never had a cooling problem.

There isn't room for a clutch fan on the Nova's. From the research that I did when I built the car, lots of guys recommended the Derale fan. Said it was the "best" one. I knew better, should have went with my first thought to go factory.

Didn't know there wasn't enough room. That 7 blade must really roar when you wind up that 427.

Oh yeah, that summbitch howls! First time that I twisted it up, I pulled off to the side of the road and checked to see if the fan was rubbing the shroud. That's how much different it sounds.


That 40 Ford coupe that I was telling you about is here in the garage. My Brother bought it. Cars is NICE!!!!

As for the Nova Tony, I had the highest bid of 25k and I've got cash in hand. When can I come and get it?

Here is the Camaro minus the rain cover that ended up on the Jeep next to me. All we could do is watch as the wind was really hitting us with all the rain.

Hey Ric, I was entertaining the low-bids when I was in the "Nova hatin mood". I'm all better now, so price has gone up considerably. You would have to buy another lift, so in reality, I'm saving you some money for your retirement!

I've never had the fan clutch lock up on the Chevelle but I know what it sounds like. The one on the motorhome was locking up while going through the mountains out west. Sounds like a jet engine winding up.

Oh, and I was high bidder at $23,500. Don't let Ric fool you, he never bid $25,000 while the official bidding was open. Now that it's closed he wants to sneak in with a higher bid. With all that noise from the fan I'm kinda thinking the price should drop not go up.

We all know the Nova will piss you off again as it ruined your weekend. Even what I know about your warranty practices I'm going to up my bid to 26K. Don't worry about me buying another lift as I need it anyway since I bought the Sky and have to park my truck outside so for $2500 I I'm sure the Nova will fit as well.

I did make the decision to retire effective Sept 30 from TRW but start a new job Oct 10th so all is good and I will keep paying into your entitlements and you won't have to give up your Obama smart phone that you now can track the weather or call for help when the Nova breaks down on you again as you know it will unless you just pumping good money into that money pit.

I wait your response.

Entitlements, how dare you! I paid into SS and Medicare for over 40 years. Get your butt back to work and support the system.

Tony, I wouldn't sell the Nova to Ric no matter what he offers. Do you really want to hear about all the "problems" he has with it for the rest of your life? Oh, the fan makes so much noise. There's a slow leak in the left rear tire. No insulation under the hood, Blah, blah, blah. He'll give you another heart attack just listening to him, not worth it bud.

I'll take it off your hands and will never complain. Sold as is, no warranty expressed or implied. So really, who would you rather do business with? Should be a no brainer.
