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?

Larry Larson Runs 6's.mov
BangShift.com presents Larry Larson's 2009 Drag Week winning '66 Chevy II
running 6.934 at 211.59 mph in Las Vegas at the PSCA Street Car
Supernationals. This video shows you all the angles, from inside,
underneath the bumper, and outside the car. Larry's car was unchanged from
it's Drag Week trim, and had only been outfitted with a new pair of Hoosier
DOT legal "slicks". Over the 4 day event, Larry ran 6.99, 7.00, 6.96, and
finally 6.93. After the 6.93 on Saturday evening, we added air to the
tires, packed the chutes, filled it with pump gas, and cruised the strip
for about 4 hours while shooting video and photos. Stay tuned at
www.BangShift.com for a feature on Larry's car along with more killer 6
second and cruising video.
