A bad-ass muscle car with the right owner. It's potential and classic lines is highly underrated. Thanks to Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof", The classic Chevy Nova not only was re-born on this motion picture but also used as a weapon. It's calling- to be resurrected in full glory and strike fear in ricers nationwide. Manufactured in the U.S from 1962-1979, but after 72' safety standards had to do some surgery to it's ass, redesigning the bumpers for reinforcing impact, a hatchback style look. Then getting carried away they changed the grill, the look of the headlight and tail light assembly- Ultimately making it look ugly as fuck and deserves to be called a Nova (no-go in Spanish). Just when the 4th gen. nightmare was over, the movie Gung Ho came true. In 1985-1988, GM and Toyota shook hands thinking they designed something beautiful and re-created the Nova only embarrassing it's predecessor more. The car came off the assembly line looking like a trailer trash's dream car only because Cletus and his Wife Sunshine knew they wouldn't be able to afford one for another 10 or 20 years.
Keep your Nova primed because what really matters is what's under the hood.
