Melvin's 1974 Nova with Bigblock, roll cage and ready to race
The famous Melvin of Ypsilanti and his once "Fastest car in Ypsilanti" until a local builder brought out the v8 Fiat. While the controversy continues over who owns the fastest car in Ypsilanti you can judge or yourself if Mevlin's Nova has what it takes. Shown here in Depot Town's weekly car show in 2011 MR Melvin is very evasive about what is under the hood but ask any of the OG Riders and they will tell you it is a bunch of junk yard parts. The interviewer is OG Rider's President, Rocky. The video tour series is sponsored by pageBuzz.com website construction.

keeping a close eye on the heat input and metal draw, (which is also an
important step in choosing where to sit)!
