Collector Worth Car: Chevy Nova

Image
Chevrolet has over the years continually produced top performing and some of the most highly regarded vehicles distributed. We at Farm Boy Garage are HUGE Chevy fans and feel that most of their products are worth the money. When looking back on some of the historical muscle cars that have made an impact in the history of Chevy, we're always reminded of one of our favorites: The Chevy Nova! This week, we're sharing with you a bit of info on these gorgeous compact muscle cars and giving them the recognition they deserve!


The Creation of Chevy Nova
In the 1960s, Chevy executives made the push for a budget friendly 'basic' car to be released and out on dealership lots as quickly as possible. This urgency left very little time for designers to focus on details or throw around ideas, making the 'Chevy II' the fastest car development process in history. In just a short 18 month period after approval, the first Nova rolled off the assembly line. To help speed the proces…

Come Out Saturday for the Last Day of the 2018 IMCA Super Nationals!

Image
This week, Farm Boy Garage has been busy with the 2018 IMCA Super Nationals in Boone, Iowa. We're camping out all week long and we're super stoked to be a sponsor for Brandon Dale this year! Here's a little information about the Super Nationals, as well as the Northern SportMod Brandon's tearing up some track with this week.


A Little Info on the Super Nationals
“Super Nationals is the biggest event in the world for the weekly dirt track racer so the local track theme is something that allows racers to bring a piece of home with them,” said IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “Racers are proud of their local IMCA sanctioned dirt track and we want them to highlight that. This is also a contest with a lot of latitude. Designs can and should be unique but drivers and graphics design­ers have to remember that required decals must be incorporated,” he added. “There are a lot of ex­tremely imaginative people in this field and I look forward to seeing what they come up with.”
