Larry Larson's 6 second Nova Cruising the Strip in Vegas 1.mov
Bangshift.com brings you Larry Larson's infamous cruise down Las Vegas Blvd
following his historic 6.93/211 pass at the PSCA Street Car Super Nationals
in Las Vegas on November 21, 2009. To get ready to drive the car on the
street, all we did was add air to the tires, pack the chutes, fill it with
pump gas, take off the stickers on the windows, and hit the key. This Lenco
equpped beast really is a street car. The pass on the video is the 6.96 run
from early on Saturday. The 6.93 is also available to view at
-6.93-Second-Quarter-Mile-in-a-Street-Driven-Nova.html as is a full feature
on the car. Enjoy.
Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
Drag Week 2011 - Day 3 - Wednesday - Armarillo, TX
Day 3 of Hot Rod's Drag Week didn't consist of any record setting runs with
not so favorably track conditions in Amarillo, but competitors still had a
good time making passes down the track, and then completing the longest
drive of the week, over 400 miles. Joe Barry made the drive the night
before, spinning out, and then getting in after only a few hours of sleep.
We follow him as he makes his quickest drive of the week.
