Our Story


The Owners

SuperNova is in honor and memory of Doug Ables who tragically passed test driving his 1965 Nova after years of refurbishing. Doug is the Father of Rhonda Bueno, the uncle of Debra Miller, and together they joined to keep his legacy alive through SuperNova. Rhonda had a vision. She contacted her cousin Debra and three weeks later they had a store. Everything fell into place unexpectedly and so perfectly. It was then they knew Doug was watching over them.  The love and dedication that was put into SuperNova can be felt throughout the store. From the tags on every item, Doug’s 1965 Nova parts throughout the store, to a special poem that was written by his son Arlon Ables. That poem will live on the wall in SuperNova, as well as in the hearts of each and every person that knew him and along with the memory of a wonderful father, grandpa, uncle, and friend.


The poem and his love for his 1965 Nova is where their story begins. Rhonda and Debra, cousins and best friends, have come together in remembrance of an amazing human being. This is something special they will cherish forever. Doug wanted nothing but happiness and love for his family and showed that in many ways. So much so, that Rhonda chose to have a piece of her father with her everyday she steps foot into SuperNova and for that she is so grateful.   These two, along with the help of their Mom’s, put 110% of themselves into SuperNova. They know it never could have happened the way it did without each other, and without Doug looking over them in the process. He truly is a blessing to them all. Rhonda and Debra want to thank each and every one of you for giving them your time, support, and watching them grow into what we now call SUPERNOVA. This is just the beginning, and they are excited that you want to experience their story with them.
