1966 Chevrolet Nova On the 6sArtist: Carter Hickmanwww.carterhickmandesigns.com "I've always had a thing for the '66 Nova because that's what my dad raced when I was little. I started thinking of design ideas and 'On the 6s' was born. This concept incorporates the number six in a very original way. Take a 600hp LS6 and mate it to your choice of six-speeds, making a potent combination to move this square box body along. The six theme is carried even further with six-piston calipers. Using the LS6 allows us to keep a stock hood. I never really liked the front bumper, so I smoothed it out and dropped in some driving lights. Because the body is so square, I thought square exhausts would fit nicely, and why not have it exit through the body? The interior will be a mix of street rod and style: Smooth flowing seats and smooth dash with custom painted gauges. I was going after a clean, low, aggressive look with some power to back it up."
