STREET MACHINE OF THE YEAR
Not only was Steve Tornari’s ’67 Nova the first Florida based car to ever win Goodguys Street Machine of the Year, it also served as the sixth win for a Chevy Nova, by far the most popular make. Stanced and incredibly smooth, Tornari’s Nova came from Jeremy Miranda’s Mirandabuilt shop – a haven for mega muscle. It was a years-long build and you can easily see why. The mirror-like smooth gray hues cover the deleted drip rails, sectioned quarters, extended rockers, and lengthened “eyelids”. The 20-inch red & black Budnik wheels popped to perfection on this car offering tasteful contrast. Inside – Jeremy Carson of Extreme Performance stitched a masterful interior playing off the car’s scheme of gray, red and black. An integrated iPad recessed into the console serves as the nasty Nova’s nerve center. Tornari found this car in 1983 and has owned it ever since so he will most likely never part with it. But thanks to a TCI chassis, RideTech shockwaves and a 900hp twin turbo NASCAR Chevy V8 – you could say this baby came a long way from barn-find status. Pick your poison with this one. Lay it out and drag rocker or embarrass ZR1’s or Hellcats at the local cruise night. A lethal combination!
