Even though it has a stock body, this Nomad will be all sorts of wild in many aspects. The first thing to hit your eyes will be the two-tone black and root beer flipping to copper paintjob. Wheel centers and some bits of trim will be treated to some Axalta paint in addition to the main body. Once your eyes process the slick paint, you’ll see the aired-out stance that almost puts the rockers on the ground. RideTech components combined with an Art Morrison Enterprises chassis accomplish the tasks of handling at ride height and looking good while parked.

Backing up all the appearance items is a stout drivetrain. There’s an LT5 crate engine barking out its 755hp exhaust note through Borla exhaust. Backing up the LT5 is a 10L90-E 10-speed automatic transmission. Combine all this with the craftsmanship of Big Oak Garage and you’ve got one incredible Nomad ready for the show circuit as well as the street.
