Going nowhere in a Nova

It doesn’t help when your car means No Go to the workers building it in Mexico. However the name Nova is derived from the 1964 Chevy II Super Nova concept car seen below.

The Nova wouldn’t be a replica of the concept car (isn’t that always the case!) as the concept would also influence the design of the Camaro. We’re fortunate to get two great cars from one concept. However today we celebrate the awkward transition from trim line to model with this second generation Chevy II.
