The October issue of NZV8 has just hit the shelves, so grab a copy today.
In this month’s issue we’ve gone Chevy crazy with a 1950 Chevrolet Business Coupe cover car and a Chevy 210 Hardtop coupe feature car. We also check out a mint 1969 Chevrolet SS Camaro drop top packing a 450hp big block power source. We reveal NZ’s top Chevs and we have a handy guide to local Chevrolet specialists. Rounding off the Chevy madness is a supercharged 2004 Corvette Z16 and we reveal a very unique Corvette Nomad. We report back from the big swap meet in Fielding and the annual Greazefest held in Aussie.
We have all the usual advice and technical information, readers’ rides and competitions to keep you up to date with all that’s happening on the NZ V8 scene. Pick up a copy now!
How cool is this car? Pretty damn cool, but what is it? It’s a fibreglass replica of the famous Waldorf Nomad. The Waldorf what? Well, right after GM debuted the Corvette way back in 1953, they rolled out a Nomad show car.
The concept vehicle was essentially a Corvette with an extended roof, hatch out back and obviously more interior space. The combination of that curvaceous Corvette body and a long-roof design was interesting at the time but a bit of a freak show. GM sadly never built the car themselves and the design concept was left behind to be forgotten like so many show cars.
Recently Superior Glass Works from Oregon, USA has decided to produce the thing, though only 25 will be rolled out for public buyers. Priced at $125,000 USD purchasers get a full rolling car, complete with interior, transmission, and paint. Only thing is you’ll have to supply your own LS-series V8. If that sounds a bit too much trouble just enjoy the images in the gallery below.
