1300hp Twin Turbo 1967 Chevrolet Nova Build
 

This ’67 Chevy Nova named “Affliction” began its journey with the new owner Steve Tornari back in 1983. While cruising the streets southern Florida Tornari saw a Nova that might have some parts he needed for his own Nova build.

After getting the driver to stop, an offer of $500 was made for the stranger’s center console in his Nova, that $500 offer turned into the final price for the entire car!

Over the next 3 decades the Nova would see several rebirths that included street duty as a cruiser, and time at the drag strip as a race car.

Eventually the car was taken to a local shop to get an SB2 out of a NASCAR swapped in between the fenders, but that’s when fate threw a nasty curve ball at Tornari. The motor was stolen out of the car during a break-in at the shop doing the work and that led the project to go on the back burner.

About a decade later when Tornari ran into Jeremey Miranda, owner of Miranda Built at a local car show. The two began to talk and soon after the show Tornari’s 1967 Nova was on its way to Miranda’s shop to begin a new life.

The project was only supposed to be a low-key build, but soon ideas started flying, body panels were modified, and turbos were hung. Miranda and his team took a vision of an owner and took it well beyond expectations anyone could have ever imagined.
