It would have been in 1985. Now it'll break your heart and cost you the price of a good newish car. 73 nova wouldn't even be that cheap anymore anyway.

Its easier to think of it in this term: You reverse into a brick wall and smash the back of the car in. a) How gutted would you feel at losing $200? b) How gutted would you feel at losing $2,0000+? If you answered a), its a good choice for a first car. If you answered b), you probably have more money than sense.

Not especially in 2016. First-time drivers are far more likely to be involved in a collision than more experienced drivers. Trust me, you don't want to crash a '73 Nova into a modern car at any significant speed because you'll come out on the losing end of it injury-wise. It's a myth that old cars are safe in crashes because they are "big" or "heavy". The fact is old cars provided very little crash protection for the occupants because crash safety wasn't especially "a thing" in 1973. Forget about crumple zones absorbing the impact - the cabin of the car and essentially those sitting in it absorb a lot more force from impact than you would in a more modern car designed to absorb and deflect impact energy away from the cabin and the occupants. If it's all you can get though, it beats walking... drive defensively and avoid risks that could cause a crash if that's what you end up driving because you really don't want to crash in one. Good luck

its way past its days. You can't hoon in a Nova it'll cost you heaps of cash to fix it when it breaks down every 2nd day its an old persons car never going to win a race. They would of been a good first car in 1978 there day is gone. Get something from the 2000's at least as a first car

Yea because parts are more plentiful an you Can basically build the motor an transmission of your choice the way YOU want it an the parts are avaible almost at any parts store or online. Chevrolet didn't change a lot Ford changed designs much more an aren't as interchanble like gm is. Good choice by the way an hold on to it there getting harder an harder to find an are becoming more scarce each day for novas

No It is a Sunday cruising car now. It will be far too unreliable to be a daily driver and far too expensive to maintain unless you can do it yourself. Cars then were also death traps compared to modern cars.
