Ken Gavito’s 1970 Nova

Ken Gavito’s father originally purchased this ’70 Nova as a running car in the late ‘80s for cheap. He had always wanted one in high school, and this was his chance. Ken and the family would purchase parts for birthdays and Christmas gifts to help the father make his dream into reality.

My dad picked this car up because he always wanted one in high school. One of those late 80’s running cars for under $1000. Something you won’t find these days.

Since his father’s passing two years ago, Ken has vowed to clean up the Nova and restore its condition. He plans on continuing to show the Nova in his father’s memory and honor, and maybe add a few 21st-century improvements down the line.
