    Retro! Retro! Retro!

    Since it seems that we all love "hertiage" so much I whipped this little "contemporary" Nova up over lunch, enjoy.

    I'm all for Retro design, and you obviously have great drawing skills, but I don't see the Nova? Regardless, I like it a lot, its sweet looking, retro or not.

    I LOVE it as well! But I don't see the "Nova" either.. Personally, I think a 1968-1972 Chevy Nova SS would look GREAT with the new Chevy front-end styling. I think you can mix it in there somehow.. Why not give that a try?

    Otherwise, this design is very, very nice...

    wow. gorgeous.
    i see a little 2nd gen corvair in the front fascia and headlights. since chevy made the nova at the same time, i say it works!

    the flow of the design is great. the execution , well, beautiful.
    i am going to work on emulating your clean line work. if you see my drawings improve, you know i owe you a debt of gratitude. you are a great inspiration, torred.

    I am getting a strong fourth-generation (1975 - 1979) Nova vibe from this design, although it looks so much better than that said car.

    Looks nice. More like a late 90's Nissan Z car though on the sides.

    No ...I do not see NOVA in this at all. Refer to your classic Nova designs and then I think you can come up with sometjing that fits the bill.

    I like it, though like others here, I don't see any Nova cues from past Novas.

    The rear made me think of the Delorean & then a 2nd Gen VW Scirrocco.
    Perhaps an Isuzu Impulse(1st gen).

    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Re: Retro! Retro! Retro!

    The only reason I called this a Nova was because it seemed short to me and growing up with one, they seemed short. I had no intention of following any design cues from the Nova line. Now on to a C7 Corvette that moves past today's look. I challenge everyone to sketch one!
    P.S. Thanks for all the compliments!!
