Did Don ever make a YENKO SS Nova?
That depends on what you are asking.

Did Yenko ever "badge" and Nova a "Yenko SS"?
No. 1969 was a "Yenko S/C" (Super Coupe) and 1970 was "Yenko Deuce".

Were Yenko Novas "Super Sports"?
The answer here depends on the year. All 1969 Yenko Novas were Super Sports because they all started out as big block Novas and the only way to get a big block Nova was as a Super Sport. All 1970 Yenko Novas however were standard, non-SS Novas.

is it wrong that the video of your nova turned me on? :confused:

lol, thats a beautiful ride, whats going on with the marker light on the fron fender though? is it just the video or are they painted on?
We actually flush mounted the marker lights. We deleted the bezel and used epoxy to mount the marker light from the inside.We closed up the gap and mounting holes around the housing by welding more metal. Since the marker lights then stuck out about 1/8" from the fender, we sanded them smooth flush with the fender.You have a good eye. Most people dont notice. Thats what i was going for, real subtle mods.
