Typo? Nova ran out of steam and became a Brazilian imported FWD non-car by 1979. I have owned my 1967 (talked about a year ago or so on this post), a 1970 Nova 2 Dr Sdn I drove for a year or two as a tunnel ram equipped SBC 331 Mallory 4 lobe distributor, Duntov 30/30 cam with 4.56 cogs before I converted it into an A/Gas 468cid LS-7 powered car with 5.38 cogs. My next daily driver was a 4bbl 1976 Nova 2 Dr Sdn SBC 350 /TH350 car I put 237,000 miles on before I traded it in on my current 1985 Impala (I still have it). An I still own my dad's old 1977 Nova 250 L-6 3 speed manual that has been stored in my barn for the past twenty three years. It was driven till the wheels fell off, but the body is cherry and rust free.

I am a Ford guy but, I do like an early Nova not sure exactly which one 65 I think more round than later one(67).I am more of make it look as factory as possible on the outside. Then open the hood and have the right stuff and fast as hell.

LOL Smoke you ara a funny man, man. The pacer comment cracked me up Laughing I like the 66 to 72s. I am trying to break the "click" meantality. I have some c-3 vettes, 70s elkys, first gen Camaros, and even a 67 impala convert with a matching# 396, but I have to shamefully admit I have never owned a nova Embarassed

I have to say I like all Novas. Even the really new ones like mine. If I had a pick I'd take the 72 body style.

My favorite is the one that says NOVA, their all good in their own way.

My self and kids 68-72 are the years we own though.
But my 1970 is 3600lbs while my freinds 1967 is only 2600lbs.
