From Your Garage #5 Featuring Jeff Williams 1970 Nova!
My car addiction started with .99 cent match box cars with my brother, I grew up all around the world as my dad was a federal agent, he always made sure when we moved to a new country that he would buy the latest and greatest sports cars of those years, it started in Jamaica with a Nissan Z 240sx and instantly I was addicted to follow in his footsteps, 280z was next, I was in high school when I got my first 1984 rx-7 and I instantly wanted to upgrade it with a body kit, wheels tires, stance, and since then I have had over 20 different cars. I started gravitating towards classics as a i got into my late 30’s as I always felt old muscle cars were such a turning point in personal freedom with the availability to make the cars personal, I bought a 1923 ford t-bucket and fell in love with the old school cars, my next classic was a 1968 Chevy Nova that I wanted to mini tub and really make it my own, when I came across my current nova, it had the key ingredients.
It was built by a hot rod shop in Georgia in 2008 and had been sitting, it had 8 miles on it from having the interior updated and it was exactly the amount of modifications I knew I wanted to add to it, updated suspension, motor aesthetics, trim color changes and my personal touches like the led fog lights; the all black and white theme, the custom 1 of 1 wheels I spent 6 months with the engineers and designers at variant wheels pushing the limits on what they had done in the past to make an absolutely perfect wheel for NovaKane, it turned out absolutely perfect.
This 1970 nova is a fully built small block Chevy motor, bored .30 over to make it a 355 cubic inch motor, AFR heads, custom headers, powder coated black everything.
Mini tubbed rear end sitting on a full ride tech suspension including bolt in 4 link
DuPont white paint with freshly restored vinyl top and interior done 2000 miles ago in traditional hounds tooth with Dakota digital dash.
Variant custom wheels 1 of 1 ever made wrapped in Nitto rubber with a ford 9 inch rear end 4:10 gears with Muncie 4 speed manual tranny.
Cars have always been a true passion of mine, and I think the bond of so many enthusiasts make it special, so many different ways to make the car yours and people appreciate what you’ve done, some don’t! That’s the beauty of it.
Couldn't agree with you more, Jeff! It's the cars that bring the people together!
