1000 HP 1963 Chevy Nova SS - A Day At The Track V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Joe Kosiba is one of those guys who likes to keep his stuff in order. His house and truck are always spotless, and his garage is so clean it could double as a showroom. We've often found that shops that are too clean never see any work, but Joe also knows how to get things done. Take his '63 Nova, for example. He's owned it for a long time, and it has gone through several transformations over the years, resulting in the car you see in this video. Today it's an arrow-straight street / strip terror that makes around 1000 horsepower from a small block sucking Nitrous Oxide. In this video, Joe takes the car to the World Street Challenge to run in the Wild Street class where you have to drive the car 30 miles, then run back-to-back dragstrip passes to qualify. Joe's Nova ended up winning the class with low 9-second quarter mile passes at around 150 miles per hour. If you ask Joe, it's just good clean fun. You can also see this car featured in the May, 2009, Car Craft Magazine.
"Mr. Chevy" - A Period Perfect Gasser Chevy V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Vintage straight-axle cars, often known as
"Gassers", are popular wherever they go. Maybe it's the sky-high stance
or the cartoon-like appearance. Or perhaps it's the way these cars
transport you to a simpler time when racers would try just about anything
to go faster. Whatever it is,
these cars draw crowds of people because they look like nothing else on the
track. "Mr. Chevy" is a period-perfect example of a 1955 Chevy Hardtop
gasser raced from 1968 through 1976 where it was parked. Larry Frees knew
the original owner and rescued Mr. Chevy at an estate sale. Today, he
shares the car with enthusiasts wherever he goes.

http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - PART 1 - Quarter panels are one of

show you how to remove your old panel and install the new. Also applies
to other GM A Bodies like Skylarks, Cutlasses, GTOs and others.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #38: 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T 426 HEMI Mr. Norm's
They say the right dealer makes all the difference, and in this case, the
dealer is almost as significant as the car! It's cool enough to imagine
walking into your local Dodge dealer and ordering up a brand-new 1971 Dodge
Challenger R/T complete with a 425 HP 426 Hemi under the hood, but when the
car was bought at Mr. Norm's Grand Spaulding Dodge in Chicago, the whole
experience is even cooler. Mr. Norm Krauss was all about selling high
performance, and his legendary Dodge dealer not only sold these bad
machines, but they also modified, tuned, and raced 'em themselves! This
particular car from the Brothers Collection is the stuff of legends...
triple black, 426 Hemi, pistol-grip 4-speed, Super Trak Pak 4.10:1 Dana 60
rear, and a bill of sale from Grand Spaulding. Too cool.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #32: 1970 Ford Mustang BOSS 429
http://www.facebook.com/musclecaroftheweek - Back in 1969, Ford was ready
to roll out a new engine to compete in NASCAR - the BOSS 429. This was a
semi-hemispherical headed V8 designed to compete with Dodge's 426 Hemi that
was leading the pack on the NASCAR super speedways. NASCAR rules say that
you need to sell at least 500 copies of a "street" version of any engine
you planned to race, so Ford needed to build a civilian BOSS 429 for the
general public. The interesting part is that Ford interpreted the rule book
and noticed that the engine didn't have to be in the same car raced... so
they could stuff a BOSS 429 into a Mustang rather than the Torinos being
used in NASCAR. The result was a super-bad Mustang with a custom-installed 375
HP NASCAR engine under the hood. From the Brothers Collection.
