While this ’66 Nova SS wasn’t an L79 car, it still had a pretty interesting story. An unrestored survivor, Todd Atkins bought this car out of California, still wearing its California emissions kit. It was owned by a quartermaster for a cruise line sailing out of L.A., who kept meticulous records of every tank of gas, from mileage to destination to distance driven, for the entire time he owned the car. We saw some 18-mpg logs in the notebooks—not bad for a ’60s V-8!
