572 Chevy start up in my 1971 Pro Street Nova after a few years of
building. Open headers so it's loud. This car received 3 awards at Super
Chevy Las Vegas 2012, Best of Pro Street/Pro Engineered, Show Class Winner
and Editors Choice Top 10 Show Car.
When I drive it down the Las Vegas Strip it stops all traffic, cars, cops
and pedestrian. Its such a ego trip! See my other videos to check out the
Firing up the 427 for the first time
Warts and all, here is an unedited video of starting up for the first time

Unfortunately we had to stop and start a few times to chase down coolant
leaks. Better coolant leaks than fuel leaks!
You can see lots of photos and info on the whole project here:
