We had more 1970 model year Novas than any others, which was great since it happened to be their 40th birthday!

If you couldn’t make it this year, be sure and save the end of June in 2011.  Mark June 24th and 25th on your calendar and make plans to join us.   We missed a few of our friends from the previous shows, made new ones in, and hope to see you all for the 4th Annual Heartland Nova Reunion.


We want to take the opportunity to again thank all those who sponsored our show, and those that provided items for our shows raffle.  We really need the support we get to help make this a successful event.   All indications are that we had another great event.  Thank-you everyone!
