Nova does not mean no go. No va does. Nova in spanish means the same thing it
does in English.
Provo? Seriously? When I think of Provo, I think of the County Seat for Utah
County. Not the Irish Republican Army off shoot.Read on Drudge
about the new Chevy SS. A few people in Israel are upset because of the
Holocaust being largely under the direction of the Nazi SS. Now
when I think of SS in relation to a car, I'm thinking about a 1969 Chevelle
SS with a 396 under the hood (my dream car), or a '69 Camero SS with the
same engine. Chevy's been using the term SS with their cars for 50 years
or more. SS stands for Super Sport. I'm not thinking of Nazi's.This is political correctness run amok.
James D; You are correct but in the 70's in Argentina, I heard a lot of
cracks about the Nova being No Va!
I'm agreeing with Shimlau. In Mexico in the mid 70's, the Nova was
the brunt of many jokes, regardless of whether it was Nova or No Va.
Oh good grief. Controversy?
Any car called Provo would have to be squeaky clean--at least until it's
got Cheerios crushed into the seat cushions.
Kia Provo: It should be a hatchback, have rust colored paint around the bottom
edges and come standard with 2 car seats in the back.
Saw this on the news and they were showing the interior. As a package, I love
this vehicle. Too bad it will be a few years before it comes out.
Probably just means that anyone who drives it will suddenly become a bad driver.
Looks like an Orem.
Pa-lease! “We were very surprised,” said Corey Norman, Provo's
deputy mayor. “Our economic development director came to us and showed us
a picture of a car that was called the Provo, so of course the mayor got excited
about it.” Must be another slow news day at the DN. The article says the
car has zero connection to the city, but there's still the need to talk to
city officials and citizens? This falls under the category of who cares.
With a name like PROVO, you would think it would seat 24
So. Cal Reader" Must be another slow news day at the DN.'It was in the Huffington post yesterday
Re: Counter Intelligence- Understood. Articles about the concept car itself was
also in the Washington Post and other papers. I guarantee you none of them had
the connection to Provo, Utah. That's what I mean by a slow news day. The
writer actually spent time talking to city officials and citizens about the
name. Again, who cares?
I thought everyone on earth knew about Provo, Utah. I thought that would have
been the only profound reason they would have name the car - as a tribute to the
amazing people in the city of Provo, Utah. I thought Provo, Utah was really the
center of the world......at least that is what some people act
To be honest, looking at the picture with this article, it appears the passenger
door has been somewhat caved-in in an accident! Maybe I'm the only one who
sees it that way. And maybe it's just because of the lighting. Obviously,
I'm not much of a fan of some of it's contour lines.
That is a funny name for a car because Provo, if nothing else, is certainly
provocative. Just look at all the comments that always erupt in the Utah
newspapers whenever the name is mentioned. I like the comment about
the crushed cheerios in the seats - that is funny. To Johnny
Triumph: bad drivers in Provo? Really? I have lived all over the US, from Utah
to Minnesota to Texas to Virginia to Alabama, and lived and driven in a few
foreign countries as well. To even suggest that Provo is somehow distinguished
by those who are bad drivers indicates you probably haven't traveled
outside the state much.
Not enough seating for a Provo. And does it have a jello salad holder? I
don't think so.
People's silliness never seems to cease.
