All nice cars. Almost any other month I would have fallen over myself to vote for Qwk but 327 Steam is just awesome.

Apples to oranges to strawberries.
They are all nice.
How can you compare them when so different?!
The red 66 took quite a bit of GREAT fabrication to build an engine like that and he concealed it between stock frame rails and under that 2” cowl. The way the turbos are laid out... the nice 417 intercooler...
I have the same radiator fittings. Well done! Beautiful car and great stance. Unfortunately race cars on this site don’t get much love. :-(
The car is legit.

Vs an L79 car...?
The other two don’t likely have the best shot this month.
I’d advise both entering during a different month.

Thanks to everyone that took the time to vote this month. All entries were very nice cars and worthy of consideration. A special thanks for the ones that voted for the original car. It makes all the hard work rewarding. And a congrats to the other entries. You should be proud.

I wanted to congratulate 327steam on the ROTM win! The restoration of your original L79/1966 Nova SS looks impeccable and is truly world class!

I also wanted to acknowledge Qwk's twin turbo 66 Nova and the superb craftsmanship, innovation, and engineering in building a car that is both raced and street driven (and looks totally awesome too)!

I had a chance to read both of the other contestants build threads for their Novas and the stories were amazing.

I also wanted to thank everyone who had posted their generous comments about all of the cars shown in July's ROTM contest. I was glad just to be a player in this month's party!

Very well said, Thank you!

My first car was a 74 Nova, so when I saw your Gorgeous 74, it brought back some great memories.

Congrats to 327steam on an Amazing Nova!
