The skull and crossbones under the hood adds to the rebel mystic of Dan Fifer’s 1972 Chevy Nova SS.
LIMA - Dan Fifer, of Lima, brought his 1972 Chevy Nova SS to the Westgate Charity Car Show. He has owned this beauty for 20 years.
1972 would be the last year the Nova SS was produced. It would go out with a bang too. Production rose to just over 12,000 that final year. The muscle car phenomenon was dying and most other car companies had halted production. Those craving a fast, loud car went to the Chevy dealership for the Nova SS.
Fifer’s Nova SS includes an automatic 350 engine but with a 383 stroker motor.
“It’s kinda loud and draws a lot of attention,” said Fifer.
Fifer is proud when showing his engine off, which includes the American flag on the air filter housing. The skull and crossbones under the hood adds to the rebel mystic of the Nova SS.
Fifer enjoys taking his car to car shows and meeting new people.
“I enjoy showing it and people taking photos,” said Fifer.
