Chevy Nova at the race track

Hi,

I brought my '70 Chevy Nova to the race track the other day. And since nothing had been done to chassis, it was like driving a soap around the racing circuit... Good fun! :-D

I hope you enjoy the clip as much as I enjoyed driving the the old fart. Hehe.

Kind regards /Peter

Thanks mate! One of my friends just mounted his HTC camera on the dash and recorded. I used one handheld Iphone in my Nova. Everything's edited in Microsofts free software Live Movie Maker. Very easy to handle. And there's a lot of royalty free music to use out there on the internet. :-)

Kind regards /Peter

There will be more track day, for sure. No pro touring-stuff on the Nova, though. But probably some updates to the rear suspension. The mono leafs is 42 years old...

Kind regards /Peter

Just a plain and "boring" Porsche 996 Turbo from 2001. Some of my friends still thinks those german cars rock. ;-)

Kind regards /Peter

Steve: Sway bar is for cheaters! ;-) Just kidding. Might be a wise upgrade.

Blue Shoe: ~ $45 for 10 laps.

Nova Nutcase: DSE?

The chase car didn't even break a sweat!

Thanks for sharing!
