Silver Fox Jet Truck Blows Up
So I went to the drag races yesterday and happened to be videoing when this
Jet Truck blew up. Watch as the fuel line ruptures and jet fuel comes
pouring out around the rear tire just before it explodes.

Nova's blown 383
This is a blown 383 (706 hp) in a '67 Chevy Nova. This little video was
taken the first time it was cranked. Still not drivable yet, because it's
in the process of being tubbed right now. Gonna be a blast!!
UPDATE AS OF 11-14-07: All chrome, windshields, interior, etc. has been
stripped and the car is in the paint shop. We should have it back soon and
then it's on to upholstery shop. I took a couple pics of it yesterday and
it's lookin' good. It's a metallic tangerine/orange candy. GRAB YOUR
My excuse for the picture quality of the video is that I had a new digital
camera and didn't know much about how to work it yet.
