Adam's 1970 Pro-Street Nova
In the midst of writing several stories of old cars, this one is being
pushed to the front of the line, more or less for the reason one does not
usually see a teenager who only recently got his license, show such an
interest, and create a car like this, and most importantly, drive it
properly and prudently on the street. He is waiting for the chance to take
the car to the track, it is estimated with the fairly 'tame' engine, the
Nova will do an 11-second quarter mile. To the delight of his fellow
students, and yes, the girls do really like to car, Adam takes this car to
school quite often. It has proven to be very reliable and street-able,
albeit a conversation within is carried on at more then a whisper.
Following the car from a distance, all I heard was the Nova, in my Vista
Cruiser felt like I was riding a cloud! I would like to thank Josh, an
astute and budding videographer for taking the clips of the moving Nova, he
will have his license soon too, and he has ideas for his own project car as
well, he is being inspired by all the old cars he sees and getting his own
visions. As for the Nova, it has the Big Block with aluminum heads, a turbo-400 automatic, the requisite Ford
9-ich rear, narrowed of course, fitted with 4.11 final drive gears, rack
and pinion steering, manual, manual front disc brakes, line-lock, safety
seats, fuel cell, and the full roll cage. Please take note of Adam's
graphic art skills. At his age, I have told him he is far beyond his years
in talent. His work is amazing, and he is going to pursue this talent.
One can only imagine what the car will look like once Adam is finished
painting and detailing it. Good for you Adam, keep it up. It will help to

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.

Jerry's a true "backyard wrenchHEAD" who built this pro-street beast in a
corn crib on a shoestring budget. Powered by a 590 horsepower stroker engine,
this is 1 BAD NOVA!
