Restore A Muscle Car Locally Crafted Goods, Curated by Windstream
Take a journey down the street and across the gravel road to discover the
best of independent, local culture – from small business owners and
craftsmen to bloggers and musicians. Each week, Windstream will shine a
spotlight on faces and places from around the country, weaving an authentic
tapestry of stories about heritage, tradition, and connection to the cities
and towns we’re all proud to call home.
“We call it a small-big town. Everyone’s here to help each other out
one way or another,” says Dave Hall about his beloved hometown of
Lincoln, Nebraska. As it happens, Dave knows a thing or two about helping
people out. He’s the owner of Restore A Muscle Car, so when he’s not
tinkering under the hood of someone’s ’70 Trans-Am, he’s helping
reconnect people to the cars they owned years ago and thought they’d
never see again, or supporting every car club he can at Lincoln’s many
local car shows. To learn more about how Dave’s commitment to car
restoration is bringing his community together, check out his feature in
our Locally Crafted Goods series.

The Orange in the nose is representative of the sunrise in Africa with the
Fire, Grunge, Cracking, and Lighting calling attention to the strife and
turmoil plaguing Africa and the natural dangers faced by African wildlife.
The colors fade through sunset and into the deepest of nights as you reach
the back of the car. The Leopards and Lions are both endangered African
Cats and meant to bring attention to both Africa's wildlife and the plight
of Big Cats around the world. Every view the video receives brings
attention to the organizations supporting these beautiful animals, Our

sanctuary in the country.

BEAUTIFUL NOVA has won numerous car shows and awards including being chosen
as a Boyd Coddington's Top 175 at the Columbus, Ohio Goodguys Nationals in
2007. BODY & PAINT: Being a Southern California car all its life, it has an
all original body and is solid as a rock. It was professionally fitted and
finished to a very high standard. It is probably the straightest car I have
ever owned or seen. it was custom painted in high dollar PPG by Creations

the nicest custom cars and rods in the country. INTERIOR: The custom

instrument cluster with fully functional Autometer gauges, an Ididit chrome
tilt steering column and a B&M Quicksilver shifter. Everything works
including the heater/defroster, radio and wipers. ENGINE, TRANS AND REAR:
The engine is a blown 421 c.i. all aluminum Motown small block that was
built by Big Al's Toy Box!! It was built using the best of the best and
puts out an astonishing 651 h.p. I had a TH-350 automatic transmission
custom built as well as the stall speed torq-converter. It is backed up
with a bullet proof 10 bolt posi rear using all high end components like
4:10 Richmond gears, an Eaton posi unit and Strange axles. It didn't stop
there; I topped all that off with a Gear Vendors electronic overdrive
system - very-very cool !! OTHER FEATURES: Some of its other features
include 4 wheel Wilwood disc brakes with cross drilled and vented rotors,
Chris Alston Chassis works all polished aluminum rack & pinion steering
with chrome tubular upper and lower control arms. It also has air Ride

list goes on like custom 3" stainless mandrel bent Flowmaster Exhaust, a polished aluminum 15 gallon fuel
cell, MSD ignition and a custom made polished aluminum radiator with
electric fans. Everything under the hood is either chrome or polished and I
mean everything like the carbs, fuel lines and linkage and pretty much
anything else I could have chromed out is!! I can go on and on about this
car but you're just going to have to call me for more information. I can
tell you this; you will not find another Nova like this anywhere. I built
it without reservations and it is absolutely gorgeous in every aspect. You
will not be disappointed!!
