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.

WRX Wagon - Custom Roll Cage - Making a dimple die gusset.
Here is a video on how I make a gusset from the Main-Hoop to the B-Pillar of the Subaru. This cage is 1-3/4" .120 wall DOM & MIG welded. Thank for watching! WARNING: I'm not trying to be reckless, I ALWAYS wear at least safety glasses when using cut-off wheels but often wear my welding helmet (on grind mode) or a face shield. NEVER STAND directly inline with the cut-off wheel, stand offset from the "line of fire" if it were to break/explode and come loose it'll be less likely to fly at your face, neck or body. I wear leather gloves too but wasn't during this demonstration due to handling a camera. I'm not trying to promote bad safety behavior, I said this is not for "newbies" but should have also mentioned NEVER buy China/Taiwan cheap brand cut-off wheels from places like Harbor Freight. Those are not nearly as quality and come apart (explode). I always buy quality Made in USA or alike brands that I know to be legitimate quality.

1972 Chevrolet Nova SS 468 Big-block Pro Street
I thought you'd like a look at this 1972 Chevrolet Nova Pro-street. This car was recently restored and is built with some serious performance upgrades. Under the hood you will find a 468 CID V8 engine. This CID amounts to a whopping 7.67 Liters. Backing up the engine is a turbo 350 transmission. The drive train has just 1000 miles since rebuild and hasn't seen the track. The rear-end of the car is a stout Ford 9" with 4.56 gears. Other options include black vinyl interior, rear fuel cell, rear battery, power steering, Exhaust headers, aluminum radiator, 750 cfm carburetor, and an electric fuel pump. The muscle car Nova was painted in 2009 and looks great. The exterior is white which goes well with the car's black leather interior and roll cage. Thanks for taking a look!

Chassis Assembly
With the sub-chassis, front clip and roll cage welding complete, team Leavitt brings all three components together giving shape to the car. Rodney and Colton MIG weld at the same time to increase production while keeping a close eye on the heat input and metal draw, (which is also an important step in choosing where to sit)!

1970 Chevrolet Nova - Built 468 Big-Block Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this awesome 1970 Chevrolet Nova. This thing has been set up for a serious amount of dragstrip time. It has a built 468 Chevy big-block under the hood, a stout turbo 400 with a shift kit, a 3,000 rpm stall converter, and a spooled rear end with 3:90 gears. This thing should be plenty quick, but it also happens to look really slick all the way around. I hope you find it interesting..thanks for watching! Background track is, Cowboy Whiskey, by Dan-O.
