YAK Car Pic of the Day

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

When Chevrolet realized that the radical compact Corvair was being embarrassed big time in sales by Ford’s Falcon (both were introduced for 1960), they quickly came up with the more conventional Chevy II, which debuted a scant two years later (new model development usually took at least twice that amount of time). Sales were a success, and everyone at GM lived happily ever after. For a few decades at least. This 1964 Chevy II Nova 400 was spotted a couple of summers ago in Tonawanda, complete with a Kleenex box on the back window ledge. Apparently Kleenex were never needed by anyone driving the car.
