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.
1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance
350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than
10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI
swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and
see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store
type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end.
The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation
software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the
engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy
cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a
Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some
Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the
parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the
cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.
Shelby Cobra Daytona - the 15 Million Dollar Car? V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This awesome 1965 Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe
CSX2601 is THE car that beat Ferrari with Bob Bondurant behind the wheel.
After competing at Daytona, Monza, Spa and Nurburgring, CSX2601 made
history when it clinched the 1965 World Manufacturers Championship for the
United States and Shelby American on July 4 in Reims, France. It is
powered by a production based Ford 289 V8, and it still holds the road like
it did in its winning season. The car will be up for auction at the 2009
Mecum Spring Classic Auction... do you have what it takes to make it yours?
"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.
New Outlaw Camaro for Nick Scavo V8TV
Nick Scavo and Jeff D'Agostino recently acquired the 1991 Chevrolet Camaro race car originally
started by Scavo, then completed by Chuck Samuel and the crew at Chassis
Engineering. Confused? Seeing that http://www.v8tvshow.com/forum -
Nick has been behind the wheel of 3 different race cars in the past 3
years, it's not an easy story to follow. We took this opportunity to
launch V8TV Web Radio to sort out the details, and in this video, Nick
takes us through the car... a twin turbo
Outlaw 10.5 race car headed for the mid 6-second quarter mile range at well
over 200 miles per hour.

Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.
