This 71' Chevy Nova Screams 'Merica
That's right... I reviewed a '71 Nova! Here were my thoughts.
It's the 70s: Kiss just put out Rock and Roll and Nite, and Aerosmith is flooding radios with Dream On. And all the way until 1974, Chevy was selling the most American thing to have ever been created: the Chevy Nova SS.
Only 7,015 of these SS Nova's were produced, and I had the honor to review one. The most notable thing you notice when you first notice is the simplicity that makes up the Nova. The rear is basically a shrunken version of the front, with the grill and bumper pattern being recreated in the rear. This simplicity adds a mechanical vibe to the Nova, and there are quite a few instances were you can really appreciate that mechanical feel: most notably when closing the hood and doors.
Propelling the Nova SS from 0-60 in 6.2 seconds is a 350cid V8 that pushes out 270 horsepower. This makes for a top speed of 120 miles per hour, which isn't too shabby for 1971.
