For quite a while now, we have been getting emails from our readers inquiring as to why we don’t have “readers rides” articles in any of our publications. Although we really don’t have an answer for that, we try to run feature stories on privatley owned vehicles as much as possible. Through our endless, internet trolling, we stumbled upon awesome selection of various Novas via pro-touring.com.
Usually it’s a Chevelle, Camaro, or another overly popular muscle car that we love regardless. One vehicle that doesn’t get enough love is the Nova; the car that’s been snubbed by everyone but the most devoted of gearheads.
With the recent high prices of the more popular models, enthusiasts have been flocking to the Nova and it’s corporate siblings in droves making the orphan muscle car suddenly cool by even today’s standards.
It’s hard to ignore the attributes of the little X-body; small, lightweight, inexpensive, and has the ability to fit just about any sized engine between its fender wells. The aftermarket has opened its arms to the Nova as well, and there’s literally unlimited potential a hot rodder can tap into when it comes time to modify one of these.
We’ve always loved them, and their time to shine is well overdue. So to quell the outcries of our readers wanting something different and wanting to see their car in a PowerTV publication, we’ve compiled a group of pro-touring style Novas to facilitate your addiction.
All body types of the Nova (even the wagons!), along with just about every style of build we could find on the site from the mundane to the extreme is represented in this article. We picked what we believed was the most creative, interesting, and offered the best quality pictures. For those of you Nova owners out there looking for ideas for your classic Chevy, check out these pictures of what others have done to their cars.
