General Comments:

The car is a 1 family car that came from LA in 1971. I bought the car from my aunt back then when she was unable to drive anymore. The car is used only in the summer months for cruising and car shows.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's great when you can get an elderly relative's classic car.

No matter what body style, that Nova has nice clean lines to it. And no issue with parts availability.

A 1966 Chevy II was hardly a "classic car" back in 1971 when the reviewer got it -- it would have been an ordinary 5-year old used car.
