Hello, I was browsing internet pictures of chevy II/Novas (that's what I do with my free time) and came across some interesting cars. If they belong to you no offense but they are a bit unconventional. Last one is just a concept, but don't think it works. I like the first one in a "Mad Max" sort off way.

Seen this at Goodguys Scottsdale 2017 Near for sale lot.

Note the NoCamino emblem on the tailgate.

The first one has been brought up here and discussed. It has a straight axle and leaf springs up front and some other somewhat unconventional treatments. I think it’s cool and different in a not so bad way..

I like the fastback concept rendering but I also like the 1st gen fastbacks.

Here’s some other unconventional takes on the Nova.

Was under construction in British Columbia a few years ago. Don't know if it ever was finished.

Most of these cars work for me. The madmax, cherokee nova, the camino novas, actually look kinda cool. The only one's that are a bit meh are the shorties. The fast back concept reminds me of the first gen barracuda.

How 'bout the Super Nova concept introduced to the show circuit in Spring, 1964. The timing was terrible. The Super Nova was totally lost in Mustang mania and disappeared in GM's rush to produce a car (Camaro) to rival the success of the new Ford pony car. There isn't much written about the Super Nova drivetrain, but it's said to have had the 220 HP L77 283 V/8.

Other than the very front end/grill area, body looks too much like the same lines as '65-69 Corvair....

I'm sorta diggin' the Madmax also.

I've got a dream to someday build a all steel street version of a Bill Thomas fastback, as if Chevrolet had actually ran production versions.

One of very few pictures showing the rear of the '64 Super Nova. Recessed back window ala Chevelle.

I bet that thing really stops well with the single master manual brakes. I'm guessing 4 wheel drums too.

1st gen Barracuda roof line might actually graft on to a 2nd gen Nova as the quarter panels and taillights are similarly proportioned.. I love the view of the rear of the Barracuda.. It’s kind of aviation inspired and visibility out the back is excellent too.
