1963 Nova
This was my first car - a 1963 Chevy II Nova. I bought it shortly after I turned 15 for only $1,500. My dad and I spent the next 10 months restoring it - it was a ton of fun, we both learned a lot, and the car looked awesome. Then after driving it for about a year, I got slammed into by a woman, which totaled the car. We have a couple hours of video shot during our restoration process, but it's very unwatchable... so here is a short edit of the work we did. No fancy editing, just video clips over music. Warning, this will probably be pretty boring to everyone except my dad and I, but here it is anyway. Music: zz top, outkast
