1978 NHRA Sportsnationals
The late, great, Modified eliminator. If you've never witnessed Modified
Production and Gas-class cars in action, you really missed drag racing's
most exciting era!
Sure, drag cars are making more horsepower and torque than
ever, with resulting quicker and faster ET's and MPH, but the sounds of these
high rpm, manual shift race cars--sans any electronic rev limiters--is no
longer around. Ditto for the mean sounding/cool looking dry hops, as the
cars approach the start line (after the burnout) is unfortunately, a thing
of the past.
Chevy II Nova Deuce (327 w/ big cam)
Speak softly and carry a big cam!...LOL!!! Adjusting the carb on the
Deuce... does this 327 Chevy small block sound sweet or what?

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.
