Great car. Love the Nova.
In the other hand. Is there is any reason shop don't like to even touch a imported car? Jap in this case. They act if they going to get some terminal disease if they work on a Japanese car.
Money is money. You quote your job fairly and You should care less if it is a Jap, Korean, o whatever that may be.
That happens to me couple of weeks ago, when I try to get my ID Tag refurbished. They simply say no. When in there wed they stated they would be able to do to any car and model.
Well, that is how thing goes.
Good Luck with the 1200.
Thanks. It's all good. I'm gonna put it up for sale and see if anyone bites. If not, I'll be having it built locally where I can at least monitor progress. My favorite part about the Nova build was that every time I dropped in say, every other week, I saw progress. It was the first shop I've experienced this with which, sadly, is rare. It was pretty disheartening to go twice in 6 months to the last shop the 1200 was at and only see it under a thicker layer of dust.
Oftentimes, builders prefer to stick to what they know, which is why some are hesitant to try different stuff. I'm sure shop that built my Nova would do it since it would be a cakewalk for them and it is, at least, "vintage", lol. While the work they do is not cheap, you get what you pay for. Although the quality is worth it, I dont know if I want to be sinking $40k+ into a 1200 either, lol.
