Three Words: Nova. Wagon. Gasser.

Children probably not included.

Here’s the question, Hoons: what would you do with a ’65 Nova Wagon with a straight-axle conversion and a 327 with dual Holley 450’s? Soccer practice, here we come.

Found on Craigslist.


  1. I've got nothing else to say that the title doesn't cover. This is so undeniably badass that Samuel L. Jackson would look like a big wuss standing next to it.

      1. Sadly, dad called me and laughed hysterically. He's into Cadillac's now. I tried to counter that this was the Cadillac of all Nova's … he wasn't buyin' it.

        1. You know, I would normally call foul on that kind of behavior, but in this case I wholly approve and condone it.
          Aw, shit, I'll admit it would probably work on me, too. However, in this case it could be kept in reserve because I would need no persuading at all. Yeah, I'm into Cadillacs as well (or used to be).

  2. I would park in the middle of every single ricer meet in houston, and just idle. No racing, no showing off, just…

    1. Hell, considering that even my Volvo has a better (more tractory) exhaust note than most of 'em, that's the first thing I'd do with any V8.
      Larger V6s may also apply here. 3800? God, yes. 4.3? It's 3/4 of an SBC, so of course.

    1. I'll have you know that the Pontiac redlined my little medulla oblongata lizard brain with WANT. Warn me next time you do this. Good Lord, that is one hell of a car.

    1. I was wondering that myself. When I saw it was Madison I immediately called my dad to go look. Maybe you'll run into each other. Obviously the area code on the # is Madison area so maybe dude is just trying to get the ad out to peeps in driving distance? Smart move too i suppose…

    2. Good question. I can only guess it got lost on its way through the interwebs.
      Hey, I'm not complaining.

  3. What would I do? I'd upgrade the brakes, drive it in the summer, annoy perfectionists at cruise nights and ricers at car shows, and paint over the "Nova Nutcase" lettering. I'm not sure whether I'd do it up in Pre-Malaise Green or just find a spraypaint colour that's close, but not identical to, the colour it has.

  4. It’s about ten miles from me. A good buddy tipped me just where it was. Thanks Sam!
    “She’s a beaut, Clark!”

  5. Hey guys (and Gals) this is my wagon! Thanks for the compliments!!!! I put a lot of time into it and have had some fun but now it is time for something different.
