The Hot Rod starter kit

Posted: October 2, 2013 in Uncategorized

When I was a youth, it seemed that the most popular car for the younger generation to grab and start modifying was the humble Chevy Nova.

Mainly the third, 1968-1974, and fourth, 1975-1979, generation versions.

This was the 1980s-early 1990s. Novas were cheap and they were everywhere.

They were a good size, not to small and not to big. You could also stuff about any engine you wanted under the hood with minimal effort.

They were everywhere and I hated them for that, the same thing everywhere I looked.

Jacked up stink bug stance Novas with huge meats on the rear and young rednecks behind the wheel.

I had the wrong attitude about them.

They were a great gateway into the world of Rodding.

That is something that was… and still is needed.

Low priced canvas for the young artist with little money to start expressing themselves on.

I find myself actually looking at the 4th gen ones now.

Just because they are fun and easy builds.

Maybe we do get wiser as we age.
