The Snopes link that Richard gives is well worth reading. It gives a linguistic explanation of why “Nova” generally doesn’t parse as no va to Spanish speakers. Some empirical evidence suggesting that they sold well in Mexico: the Nova has been out of production for over 30 years, and you still see them on the road from time to time. There must have been a lot more Novas in their heyday.
