check out these very fast chevrolet nova on the 1/8 mile at racelegal.com drag strip.
The Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova is a compact automobile manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors produced in four generations for the 1962 through 1979 model years. Nova was the top model in the Chevy II lineup through 1968. The Chevy II nameplate was dropped, Nova becoming the nameplate for the 1969 through 1979 models. Built on the X-body platform, the Nova was replaced by the 1980 Chevrolet Citation introduced in the spring of 1979.
For 1974, The 1974 Chevrolet Nova got larger parking lights and new bow-tie grille emblems, as well as modified bumpers that added two inches to length and helped cushion minor impacts. The Powerglide was replaced by a lightweight version of the three-speed turbo-Hydramatic 350 ( THM 250 ) already offered with the 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8, which was the only V8 offered for 1974. Nova sales continued the surge they had enjoyed since 1972 and approached 400,000 cars for 1974. Six-cylinder Novas were the fastest gainers, as sales of V-8 Novas declined. These were the years of the first energy crisis as Middle Eastern countries cut back on oil exports. After waiting for hours in gas lines and fretting about the prospect of fuel rationing, thrifty compacts looked pretty good to plenty of Americans. Nova fit the bill.
The 'Spirit of America' Nova was introduced in 1974. In anticipation of the US bicentennial in 1976, the limited edition Nova Coupes were painted white and featured blue and red accent stripes as well as red and blue interior carpets and fabrics. Oldsmobile and Buick entered the compact car market; both the Apollo and Omega debuted, using the same bodystyles from the Nova lineup. Additional options were included on these Nova-like models, such as lighting under the dashboard and in the glove compartment. Pontiac's final GTO of this era was based on a facelifted 1974 Ventura coupe, itself based on the Nova, but fitted with a shaker hoodscoop from the Trans Am.

Equipped with modern Chevrolet power, a smooth automatic transmission and a
thoroughly updated appearance, this slick Nova has been drawing stares ever
since it rolled off the trailer. And if you're ready to feel the summer
breeze behind the wheel of a storied Detroit legend, it's a chance to turn
your dreams into reality!
Built to be a head-turning showpiece, this sinister coupe features a
detailed, custom appearance that's highlighted by a spectacular color
combination and bright, mirror-like accents. Take one look down the sides
of the car's slick body and it becomes very obvious that great care was
taken to ensure all gaps are at better-than-factory standards. Step closer
to the car's wet looking finish and check out straight and ripple-free
panels that aren't plagued by any rust or major imperfections. Grab the
car's well-adjusted hood and feel how smoothly it opens to provide
excellent fit which is set off by a glossy clearcoat shine. And it all adds
up to one top-notch resto-mod that transforms traditional muscle car style
into multi-dimensional swagger!
Built to tear up the street and wow show goers alike, the car's fully
balanced LT4, which combines a sturdy iron block and lightweight aluminum
heads with a full outfit of Street & Performance chrome, transforms stout
11.5 to 1 compression into razor-sharp throttle response. At the front of
the Jet Black block, a modern accessory drive spins a chrome alternator and
rebuilt water pump below a big, reusable filter element. Once air enters
that filter, it flows through a beefy Holley throttle body to a factory
intake that's bolted down over high quality internals. Distilled fossils
are provided by GM electronic fuel injection. Sparks are sequenced through
MSD 6AL ignition and vivid MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Spent gases
swirl through slick, ceramic-coated block huggers. And cooling comes
courtesy of a proven aluminum radiator that's fitted with sleeved hoses,
two electronic puller fans and a small chrome cap.
That buff LT4 utilizes a rebuilt GM 4L60E 4-speed and Ford 9-inch rear end
to spin a proven Traction-Lok differential and rugged, 31-spline axles
around solid, 3.70 gears. Holding that stellar drivetrain off the ground is
a completely rebuilt suspension which benefits from a Chris Alston's
Chassisworks subframe, adjustable Ridetech ShockWaves, a 4-bar rear section
and manual rack and pinion steering. Stops come quickly thanks to a Wilwood
4-wheel disc brake system that features drilled and slotted rotors at all
four corners. Spent gases are managed by large, aluminized pipes, which
make good use of wicked Flowmaster mufflers. And power pounds the pavement
through mirrored Hot Wheels Sixty-Eights, which spin 215/45ZR17 Dunlop SP
Sports in front of 235/45ZR17 Dunlop SP Sports.
Inside this Chevy, classic style is augmented with seamlessly integrated
customization. The car's TMI-branded seats, which feature attractive
contrasting stitching, are all-day comfortable and display supple leather
covers that fit without any significant wrinkles or creases. At the base of
those seats, fade-free carpet frames aftermarket foot pedals and a clean
B&M QuickSilver shifter. Above that shifter, a leather-capped dash hangs an
array of Auto Meter Pro Comp Ultra Light gauges around a high quality
Eclipse CD player and small control panel for the car's Ridetech
suspension. And in front of the driver, a polished steering wheel spins a
color-keyed rim around a tilting Flaming River column.
This robust resto-mod looks absolutely predatory, and will likely attract a
TON of attention wherever it goes. If you're ready to hit the road in
style, call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!

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.

Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1969 Chevy Nova SS, so we
decided to take it for a spin. This car is powered by a performance built
396 Big-block, topped with Edelbrock aluminum heads, Performer RPM intake,
and a 4 BBL Carb. All that power is being sent through a four-speed manual
trans and believe me, this thing will really fly. The Cortez silver paint
is very slick, the interior looks like new, and it's riding on a set of
rally wheels, with BF Goodrich tires. This car is extremely well built and
it's ready to go. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a

Nissan Titan Drag Racing Racelegal com 12-16-2011
Watch as this nissan titan does some great burnouts and drag races.
The Nissan Titan introduced in 2004, is a full-size pickup truck produced
for the North American market by Nissan. The truck shares the stretched
Nissan F-Alpha platform with the Nissan Armada and Infiniti QX56 SUVs, and
is manufactured in Canton, Mississippi, United States.
The Titan is not intended to challenge the big 3 "Detroit Trucks" in sales
numbers, but rather is meant to be an alternative to them and provide
Nissan with some in-roads into the highly competitive truck market. The
name "Titan" was chosen to make up for the unsuitable name,
All Titans come standard with a 32 Valve 5.6L engine, VK56DE, which
generates (305 hp early models 2004-2006) 317 hp and 385 ft lbft of torque.
The Titan has a fully boxed ladder frame and is available in either rear
wheel drive or a shift on the fly four wheel drive system coupled with a
5-speed RE505A automatic transmission. An automatic brake limited slip
(ABLS) is available on all Titans. The Titan is available as a King Cab or
a Crew Cab with a full size back seat, no regular cab is available. The
King Cab features a 6'7" bed, and the Crew Cab features a 5'7" bed, with a
7 foot bed available on SV models. There are four models available
including S, SV, Pro-4x, and LE. The S is a base model, SV is a mid-level
model with many features, the PRO-4X is Nissan's version oriented towards
the off road enthusiast, and the top level LE is the high end luxury
