    If you are a fan of building your own car, you know that hanging around some old-time car guys can be really enlightening. For a little extra up front, they could have started there and saved the aggravation. Matt Verzi and Gavin Broome were talented mechanics, working for others for many years before they decided to team up and create StreetHeat.

    Both Matt and Gavin have a soft spot for Chevrolet Nomads, such as this version. General Motors stopped making the highly recognizable, two-door versions in but continued with four-door Nomad wagons from to This one was purchased from the South 40 Collection, owned by Robert Schear, a collector who is repositioning a few of his cars.

    Because of its high quality, it has always been priced just out of reach, but finally they made the decision to follow that old-time car enthusiast advice and spring for the good one. The goal was to take an already beautifully restored car and make it into a mild custom that enhanced the beauty of the factory design with just a few key upgrades to make it comfortable in the new millennium. One of the first things they did was to eliminate the tint from the windows. Now, the distinctive Roman Red factory interior is visible from every angle and it changed the look dramatically.

    The real personalizing process however, began underneath. While much of the Nomad chassis is still original, everything was inspected, worn parts were replaced, and all new bushings added. To give the wagon the proper StreetHeat stance, the first major mod was a full AirMaxxx air suspension kit with 2,pound RideTech bags on all four corners. To keep everything out of sight, the mechanicals for the air system were grouped into the spare tire well.

    A Viair gauge on the dash monitors everything and rocker switches control the altitude. Stopping power was next, and the installation of Corvette C6 power brakes with inch rotors up front, coupled with upgraded drums in the rear, gave the vintage wagon modern braking capability.

    Getting the car rolling in style are Billet Specialties Daggers 20x10 in the rear and 18x8 up front. Power was a priority and the original ci V-8 was retained and upgraded. The StreetHeat team removed it, disassembled it, inspected the internals, put it back together, and then detailed it. Reassembly included an aluminum intake with an Edelbrock cfm four-barrel carb. The nostalgic-looking two-barrel air cleaner was retained but modified to accommodate the new, bigger carb.

    Again, for nostalgic reasons, they retained the factory exhaust manifolds but added ceramic coating for an updated touch. Alan Grove brackets were used to swap the original generator for an alternator and adapt the new Vintage Air compressor. As a final upgrade, they eliminated the original two-speed Powerglide transmission and replaced it with a modern R4 automatic.

    The dash features a rare, padded cover that looks brand-new; a good indication of how well this car was cared for. The beautiful Roman Red interior is a perfect example of those style-setting trends of the s. Modern creature comforts include Vintage Air and stereo, making the car a great highway cruiser. The factory Sateen Silver paint on the exterior showcases the distinctive lines of the Nomad and only needed a careful cut and buff to make it show car ready.

    Thanks to social media and the huge number of followers who track every StreetHeat build, the Nomad is already sold and the new owner, Dave Garfield, will be cruising the streets of Chicago with his thoroughly modern, half-century-old wagon. Straight Line Spotlight is a monthly column that focuses on the sportsman and stars of drag racing at every level of competition.
