Holy Chevy Nova Batman!
10News.com reports that someone used a heavy-duty construction loader to drop a 1966 Chevy Nova through a Vista, CA store’s roof. Firefighters discovered the car while investigating a tripped alarm at the industrial park. California Sliding Door Window and Screen suffered water damage from a water line broken by the falling car. The red Nova was parked in the lot next to the building before it was used as a hole punch. “You don’t see a call like this, uh, very often,” said a police officer at the scene. In an associated video, 10News reporter Juliette Vista refers to onlookers as “lookie loos,” and gets this quote from a bystander at the scene: “Either it was a really expensive prank, or somebody’s mad at someone.” Someone’s been watching CSI; you know, other than me.

Past rides have included heavy iron such as a 1967 GTO, to a V8 T-Bird. In between those high-horsepower cars, he's owned a pair of BMW 320i's. Now, with a daily commute of 40 miles, his concession to MPG dictates the ownership of a 2006 Honda Civic coupe which, while fun to drive, is a modest car for a pistonhead. As an avid reader, Glenn enjoys TTAC, along with many other auto-realated sites, and the occasional good book. As an avid electronic junkie, Glenn holds an Advanced Class amateur ("ham") radio license, and is into many things electronic. From a satellite radio and portable GPS unit in the cars, to a modest home theater system and radio-intercom in his home, if it's run by the movement of electrons, he's interested. :-)
