Here is a quick video a buddy took while he was riding in my Nova. Didn't even know he was taking it or I would have given her a little more throttle and not shifted so early. Gotta drive it nice through town unless I feel like getting a ticket that day.... Better videos to come!

Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

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.
