1966 Nova SS



It’s been a busy summer at Desert Gem and we noticed a change in tow cars or trailered cars. This summer we have seen a few rods used as daily transport. Garry and Lorna brought a 1966 Nova SS what and awesome car it was pristine.  Garry was nice enough to give his own show and shine show to people in the park everyone enjoyed the one on one with Garry and the Nova. We hear that Lorna also has a rod I believe it‘s a  1972 GTO maybe she will come out next summer and let us see it. Thanks for sharing your Nova with us at the Desert Gem Garry and Lorna.

Here are a few photos and specks for all the gear heads.
