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…
