Because We've All Heard The Nova Joke

We've all heard that Chevy's Nova didn't go over so well in Spanish speaking countries because Nova means "No go", even though it's not true, so why not leave it parked and let it be a camper? This retro ad features the Nova 6 Hatchback with the "tent-like Hutch", an "available feature" I'm not so sure people took Chevrolet up on.

Nova ad found in the July, 1974, issue of Psychology Today -- that issue's been passed around quite a bit, at least in scanned form. I shared an article on political activism from the issue here, sent scans of pages on nuclear families to Shawnee, and posted an ad with doggies here.

I drive a '76 Nova and I used to work with some smart aleck who INSISTED that the 'no go' story was true. I can only assume he was jealous of my stylin' ride!

I wish my car had a tent on it. That would be so cool! A horrible, tacky eyesore, but cool.
