Gjorde en enklare presentation på Steve´s nova forum, så jag tänkte jag skulle göra likaledes här, OK?

Finaly I´ve learned how to post pic´s....


Hi Anders !
Have you posted this one before, showing a young and muscular Mr Forsberg in front of your BB 1972 Nova musclecar ?

http://i436.photobucket.com/albums/qq85/COPO_Anders/AndersForsbergsNova1972002.jpg

There is more to come !

Take care
Anders Stålklint


Anders (Nova67SS) has always been serious about his musclecars as evidenced by the clean undercarriage.

This is what the competition saw of the Nova !

An even younger (thirty years ago ?) Anders F. with the 400 cui engine used in the Firebird.

Whenever I wonder about something car-related I just pick up the phone and ask Anders for help. It´s as simple as that !

Take care
Anders S.

Ps. at a party some years ago all of us guys (five) were named Anders. That made it easy for the women. Ds :D

http://i489.photobucket.com/albums/rr257/Nova67ss/skanna0031.jpg

Lots of people came a watched, soon there was crowds with about 2-300 people and up to 60 cars racing a quick ladder, then match race´s :D lots of fun..

The Bird today, still lives a good life in the hands of Peter, and he takes realy good care of the car and have resored and developed the car more back to the streets. shoul have been about 6-10 owners after me before Peter got his skilled hands on this rare bird.. Thank GOD for that..

Did help out when my pals wanted lessons in driving there cars before licens, This got me oportunity to "check out" competitor cars strong and weak sides :D

This was a mustang with a 351 cleaveland 4V with 4 on the floor and 9" in rear. took of like a rocket (I thought) when I bouth drove it myself AND got the ovner lessons and race instruktion on why and how U do things to win race..

So when he got his drivers licens he was eager to challenge me :eek: :rolleyes: And I thought "Im going down now".... but :cool:
http://i489.photobucket.com/albums/rr257/Nova67ss/Firebirdenrastarmusse.jpg

We raced bouth direktion back and force I dropped him dead every time, seems like the wiolent gearshifts in a stickshift car does´nt catch a good auto tranny..

Är racebilderna från Brattvälten?

Nova67ss
2009-10-05, 10:45
Ursäkta det långsamma svaret, Jo bilderna är från Brattvälten UTOM det när jag kör på granen, det är från Långsele.

Sen är det lite från industri området, centralstn o badplatsen i ånge, samt ett industri område i Timrå, då bilen var svartlackad.

Lite synd att du inte hade MPH istället för HPM som regskylt på novan :)

Men å andra sidan hade det kanske varit lite tråkigt att ha GAY istället för GYA på pontiacen....

Men fräna "det var på den tiden vi..." bilder :)

Sicken nostalgi.

Hur långt ner i lådan låg dessa bilder.

Har du fått blodad tand för pontiac nu?

De låg nere i dialådorna från 79-80-81, har fortfarande flera lådor om 100 dia i varje kvar (dock inte bara race/bil bilder då) sedan några 1000 färg/svart vita negativ att gå igenom, dessutom kan min bror kanske ruva på många klenoder då han fotade mer än mej..

Jag har alltid gillat Pontiac och Chevrolet i första rummet, men istort så är alla amerikanska bilar intressanta från 30 - 90 men jag har ett särskilt gott öga till 65 - 72 GM produkter.. men även Mopar och Ford har snygga modeller..
