12: Chevrolet Nova (1975-1979)
Another example of GM trying to downsize in the 1970s was the Chevrolet Nova. The Nova had a lot going for it in the sense that it was primarily designed to compete with the imports. At the time, a smaller-sized domestic vehicle was an important thing and GM knew that. But the car isn’t a true classic or even instrumental in any respect.
Which begs the question, why are the prices so high for these? A Nova SS could easily set you back $15,000 and that would be in decent shape. A fully restored or decked-out model will set you back even more and the design of the car just doesn’t justify that high of a price tag.
