Chevy Nomads are one of the few cars that will be eternally cool. Maybe that’s why Robert “Nick” Nichols wanted one and was willing to wait for it—for 50 years to be exact! Acting on a promise from his wife he was finally able to score a cherry 1955 two-door wagon and put all those years of planning into action. What he ended with is a car that is eternally driveable, sprightly, and able to be cruised across the country if he ever chose to do so.
This is an example of some creative thinking, great use of factory and aftermarket parts, and a guy seeing through his vision for a car that he had dreamt about for decades. Nick told us that he shows and drives the car as much as possible, and as a retired member of the US Army, he has certainly earned the right to do so.
We thank Nick for his service and for letting us crawl all over his hot rod. Click here to see the photos and get the skinny on one totally bitchin’ Nomad.
