A re-recorded version of the song "1970 Nova" by American Folk Singer Larry Whitler is finding new life on internet music charts. The song pines for the long lost love affair between a man and his car. Whitler says his 1970 Nova was "really neat."

American Folk singer and songwriter Larry Whitler has released an mp3 recording of a song he wrote in 1991 about his once beloved 1970 Nova automobile. Whitler says the car had a ten inch hole in the floorboard on the passenger side and had no special features at all but, like most men, he remembers one of his first cars with fondness.

The song was originally recorded as a demo in 1991 on a four track cassette recorder and because of the quality of that recording it never found a life. Now, a new recording of the song breathes life into the long dormant tune. Larry Whitler said that while he was digging into his box of over a thousand songs, that were never properly recorded, he came across "1970 Nova" and remembered the great times he had during the years he owned the brown Chevy.

The new recording of "1970 Nova" conveys a spirit of fun. The song will be included in Whitler's upcoming CD tentatively titled "Signed, Infinity." The CD is his fourth since early 2007 in which Whitler revisits songs he penned many years earlier as well as new songs.

With his partner Robin MacBlane, Larry Whitler has been doing the same thing with music intended for children and parents under their duo name of Robin And The Giant. New songs for the children's projects have been written and recorded and earlier songs have been included in the newer CDs also.
