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.
Pat Hennebery shakedown Dick Mauceri C/SM Chevy II 04/08
Pat Hennebery drove Dick Mauceri's 67 Chevy II for its first shakedown runs
in April 2008 at Island Dragway in New Jersey. Dick bought the car in
November 2007. It was built by Jim Thore from Fancy Gap Virginia. Jim put
everything he had over several years, into building this car as an NHRA
Super Stock C Modified Stock (SS/CS). He was finally finished in late
2006, but never got to run the car. Unfortunately, Jim died in early 2007,
without ever seeing his car get to the track.
In 2007, Pat Hennebery introduced me to NETO after we had spent a hectic
month getting his old Camaro together for Dover Reunion
day. We then got it race ready and Pat raced it once at Lebanon Valley in
Sept 2007. One part of that car's long and varied history was in the late
1970's as a C/SM NHRA modified eliminator car. Pat and I were partners in
that venture. In 1979, I located a 1967 Chevy II, built by SRD for Dave
Aloisio, set up for super modified or modified production. Aloisio had sold
it to some kid in Westchester, who obviously was overwhelmed by the
purchase. Dick bought it from him, Pat & Dick parked the Camaro, and built the Chevy II.
We campaigned it all over the east coast through 1981 (I think) in C/SM and
only stopped when NHRA did away with Modified eliminator. The car
eventually ended up in Canada, where it went through life as a bracket
racer, and then an NHRA Super Stock. Where that car is now, I do not know.
Dick bought this Chevy II because it seemed so cool to run both Pat
Henneberys Camaro and a
67 Chevy II in NETO, sort of what we did 30 years ago.

The Cars of Queens: Part II - /BIG MUSCLE
Big Muscle continues its New York adventure with its second installment on
the cars of Queens, NY. This week we're taking a look at a stunning 1967
Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage
queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local
road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag
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.
