It may be a clone, but, Jeremy Lammert’s 1970 Chevy Nova isn’t pretending.
Lammert bought the car at the age of 19. It was his first project car.
“I always wanted one since my brother had a ’69,” he wrote, “I had to fight my parents to let me buy it.”
Lammert obviously won that battle, and has chipped away at the Nova the 10 years since.
“My plan for the car was to build a 10-second street/strip SBC,” he wrote. “Currently the car has a 355ci SBC, AFR heads, Smith Racecraft front subframe, Moser M9 rear end, Ron Davis radiator, Glassteck 5″ hood, Racepak dash, Weld RT-S wheels, and a ridiculous amount of parts from Summit Racing!”
Lammert admits he didn’t know everything about the car going in. But he learned along the way and was able to figure out how to get the job done.
“I have always tried to do all the work myself, but when I need help my friends are always there. The car wouldn’t be where it is today without family, friends and my awesome wife.”
Summit Racing’s Facebook fans voted Lammert’s Nova the Top November Fan Ride by one of the largest margins in 2015.
U have a Very nice Nova Jeremy! Looks great. Were you able to get that 355co small block to run that 10 sec. In a quarter on the street? And why didn’t you go with a Chevy Big Block Engine?
Thanks Mike..Have to finish up some wiring issues but I believe it will be in the 10’s.. Always liked small blocks
What a sexy ride! I bet she turns heads where ever she goes. What do you have planned for the Nova next?
The comments here don’t adequately express just how GORGEOUS your car is. The color scheme is truly outstanding. I’m not a huge fan of the design of the flames on the cowl but that’s a very minor complaint. I’d be very very proud of that car. Amazing work!!!
not cowl but hood =D
