Rob Zahabiís 1970 Chevrolet Nova

This brutal-looking, House Of Kolor Jet Black 1970 Nova is the latest blockbuster from the workshop of Rides by Kam and was unveiled at this years MotorEx in Melbourne. Back in 2010 at MotorEx, KAM proprietor, Robert Zahabi blew everyone away with his ballsy yellow Camaro – which went onto achieve SEMA Top 15.

And the KAM NOVA has been built with similar goals in mind. After the massive 22-inch rear rolling stock and the low, low stance thanks to the Ridetech airbags, the most in-your-face aspect of the Nova is its twin F2 Prochargers hanging off the 572-cube big-block. These billet beauties are symmetrical and were custom made for this car. “It hasn’t been dyno’d,” says Rob, “however it made 800 without the blowers. So we’re expecting somewhere around 1200-plus.”

A lot of trouble went into ensuring symmetry throughout the Nova – even the PWR radiator sports symmetrically-positioned twin fillers and overflows. Another novel feature is the monstrous Brembo brake package inside the painted billet wheels. Brembo themselves custom engineered this kit which includes 400mm front rotors and six-piston calipers. A lot of engineering went into this car to make everything work in harmony, there’s also a host of body mods. “There’s not one part of this car that hasn’t been customised,” says Rob, “and it’s all done in steel.” All the moulds have been deleted, with metal added in to smooth off those areas.

Very very cool. The interior colour is a little away from my tastes though
Budgets are for treasurers not car builders, words of a man that learnt the hard way Ken
