Chevrolet "Chevy" Cars

Chevy NomadJill Taylor's Nomad - Jill Taylor (Patricia Richardson), the wife of Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor (Tim Allen) on the sitcom HOME IMPROVEMENT/ABC/1991-99 owned a 1955 red Chevy Nomad Station Wagon [License plate 964-J57. Jill's husband, Tim, who loved hot rods, routinely serviced the vehicle and nagged Jill to take good care of the car - like monitoring its vital fluids and oil levels.

Unfortunately, on episode #76 "Don't Tell Mamma" Tim totaled the Nomad when a steel I-beam, suspended from a crane at one of his TV show location sites, accidentally dropped on the car. Of course, Tim quickly reconstructed the car to save face and to keep his wife from killing him.

A few years later, Jill owned a 1966 Austin Healy This initially upset Tim because of his "Buy American" sensibilities, but Tim soon learned to love that car as well.

The following dialog is from episode #76 when Tim prepares to get the Nomad fixed without his wife knowing about it.

Tim: Where are your keys?
Jill: What for?
Tim: After I do that location "Tool Time" shoot, I take it to my body shop guy.
Jill: No, it's my car. I don't want you to take it. [Tim picks up Jill's purse] Get your hands off my purse! [Tim drops the purse]
Tim: Just use the Mustang.
Jill: Tim, just leave it alone. I'm fine with my car the way it is. Mind your own business.
Tim: You know what's going to happen? That scratch is going to rust. That rust'll cause corrosion which'll eat away at the car - which'll in turn will eat away at me, leaving me a sad, pathetic, worthless man who just sits around the house moaning...

TRIVIA NOTE: In the fall of 2001, Tim Allen donated "Jill's" Nomad as an auction item for the September Fund that aided those killed in the World Trade Towers tragedy on 9/11/2001.
