What many people don't realize is that from 1962-1967, the now-popular Chevrolet was called a Chevy II, with Nova as a desirable trim level. It wasn't always so popular, however, partly because of Chevrolet flooding the market with different models.

In fact, here's the classification of related Chevy II cars: Chevy II 100, Chevy II 300 and the Chevy II Nova 400, which in 1965 became the Chevy II Nova.

Chevy II wasn't the most-catchy name for a car, so in 1968, Chevrolet officially called the Chevy II the "Chevy II Nova." Probably because Chevy's public-relations' marketers called the model "Nova," in 1969, the Chevy II name was cut and it became known as the popular Chevy Nova.

Motortrend considers the multiple years of Chevy IIs and Novas as "simple, durable cars." 

The sixth-annual Downtown Revival Car Show will be held in Carson City on Saturday, July 8, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Hosted by Esther Chapter #3, Order of the Eastern Star, the awesome car show will be held on Carson Street between Robinson and Fifth streets.
