67 Nova L6 Auto, then 73 Nova 250L6Geeze. I had a 70 Nova with a 230L6 and three on the tree. Dad splurged for the AM radio.
No power anything. And yes, my mom taught me to park on a hill in case the starter went out.
While it was a blast to drive as a youth, the only way I’d go back to those simple systems would be if I just had it as a hobby car for fun. No way would I daily drive it.
I’m not lazy. Remote start. Power windows and locks. Air conditioning. Electric defrosters. Power mirrors. Backup cameras. Auto darkening night mirrors. Automatic transmissions. Heated seats. Leather. Power seats with lumbar support. Nice sound system. Hands free calling. Ahhhh…. That feels nice. It’s like a living room on wheels!
And I’m not an idiot. Seat belts, crumple zones, air bags, etc. are all far superior than a full frame brick, just in case someone in a 70 Nova crosses the line and hits me.
Old cars were not safe. Yeah, most of us survived. But why would anyone go back to that knowing what they do today?
Had a 3spd on floor, switched out to Muncie 210 4spd.
