Finally got the cam swap done and hoping to set the engine in the truck, next weekend.  In the meantime, I'm planning to have the Nova driveable to pick my little girl up from school, later in September, when my wife is out of town.

The Nova made noise, today. It sounded kind of angry, but it was more like an irritated wife angry and not a get out and do something angry. Once I get the fan wired up, so I can keep it under 300 degrees, I can get the puny little small block calmed down.

This truck has so much potential.  Lose the grandpa chrome and find some nice wheels.  I've been wanting a GM stepside for a few years and I don't know why.  I told a friend he had better get one before they rise in price 5 years ago.  Now, the values of these GMT-400 (I refuse to use the dumb OBS, NBS, NNBS, NNNBS, NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNBS nomenclature) trucks are going crazy.

To be honest, I'm kind of liking the chrome.  It's a conversion truck, so it came with the package.  At least it doesn't have the crappy running boards.  I bought those wheels a couple of months after I bought the truck.  I really wanted Torque Thrusts but figured I'd go with something cheaper and that are every 3rd lowered C/K on the streets.  They look a lot better in person.  You're right about the prices.  I paid $1600 for the rolling chassis, in 2020.  I'm pretty sure I could sell it for double that, today.

OK.  I'll see if I can locate an aluminum topper with pop out windows for you.  It will match the chrome perfect.
