Danielle Heide is like many teenagers who want their own set of wheels. Unlike most, she's building her own by restoring a 1969 Chevrolet Nova. Encouraged by her father, Aric Heide, she's doing the work, rebuilding the engine and looking forward to getting the vehicle ready to have him help with the finishing touches at his new graphic arts business in Blackduck.

New business adds color, flair


Restoring a 1969 Chevrolet Nova isn't entirely different for a high school senior with an interest in automobiles. Doing it with help and advice from your dad isn't all that unusual, either. Danielle Heide is luckier than most teenagers working on autos, though.

Her father is Aric Heide, a man whose work on cars ranges from mechanical repairs to painted trim. It's his business.
