YAK Car Pic of the Day

If you (or your parents) didn’t own one, you probably know someone who did. This 1971-72 Chevy Nova looks like it’s been in service since leaving the dealer’s lot. These were plain, simple cars to buy, to drive, and to repair. Owners loved ’em, mechanics, not so much. The styling stayed pretty much the same from 1968 through the 1972 model years, a period in which over one million were produced, before undergoing a refresh in ’73. This one, sitting in a Sanborn driveway, has the 250 CID six-cylinder engine; V-8s of 307 and 350 CID were also available. Click on the year to see the brochure for the ’71 or the ’72.
