Hey guys, sorry about the slight delay on this...but here's the dusty white BMW again...it's a 520 as the badge says. I tried to get in touch with the owner(s) but they weren't there on this particular day






So, who can restore this beaut?? Lemme know!

V16's right, Charger noway. Could be a Vega, but looks a lil bigger so possibly a 65 Nova coupe

The man knows his cars alright! At first I thought it could be a chevelle, but I think Scooby's right, it's a Nova.

P.s. do i see these orphans being adopted soon?

Bang On Scooby...It is a Chevy Nova Type II Coupe, but its either a 1973 or a 74 looking at the front grille as the horizontal Indicators came only during these two years (if this is an original grille that is). In 1975, the grill mounted indicators became vertical. So I think we solved the mystery, it is most probably a Nova then. The only thing that bothers me is that the rear quarter windows are upwardly shaped and in the Nova this is not how it was. The windows were more or less parallel to the Road i.e. straightish. Could this be a Chevelle (no it had four headlamps not two) and is not a vega either as the grille is very unlike the vega...or is it a Valiant?? (Gosh here we go again)

Altough it could be mistaken for a Chevelle SS from the side, it looks more like the Nova SS coz of the grille. The grille is not of a Chevelle and more so the Chevelle had Twin Head Lamps
Why does'nt our friend who snapped them go again to Palika Bazaar and reconfirm what it really is ( also find out if its for sale )
