1974 Chevrolet Nova

The Nova was Chevy's compact, and first arrived in 1962. It would last for 4 generations until 1979, before the name was revived for a rebadged Toyota in the eighties. Available in any configuration from a slow, stripped out four-door up to a flashy SS, the Nova was, for the most part, a good piece of honest, dependable transportation. This 4-speed Nova, with its flat black paint and Camaro rims, looks like something you'd find in a high school parking lot in 1985.


  1. I question if it's a 73. The reason I say this is because I don't see no Chevrolet emblem in the middle the grille. If memory serves me correct 74's had the emblem in the middle of the grille and 73's just had a plain grille. Anyway who knows, that could be a different grille put on there or maybe the emblem came off somehow do to years of wear and tear.
    I'll tell you one thing though you're right about that comment on what would be in a high school parking lot in 1985. This is even coming from my memory, I could see some senior high school burnout driving the thing blasting some kind of heavy metal/hard rock music out of the car's speakers.

  2. Man, I've been following this blog for a couple of years, and so often have recognized the backgrounds in these photos I'm surprised I've never seen you shooting them. And then in this one, my condo building is behind those trees- I must've passed that Nova every day for a week while it was parked there. Crazy.
