General Information

Blue (a little bit purple after my Macco mistake)
My Dad bought me this sleeper from an old lady in CA while I was stationed in Ft Riley. After going back and forth for 2 summers we got her ready for the long road test, LA to Manhattan KS. I only had a couple issues in route, had to put a lift kit and air shocks to keep the tires from shredding. Then once when I pulled in at NM to get gas, the trans linkage fell apart, and I couldn't turn her off. Luckily I had some pliers on the passenger seat, I "Magiverized" it and continued on with an average 90 mph, that was the sweet spot, between 90 & 93. I didn't get pulled over until about 50 miles to Ft Riley, just because I didn't know what color the KSP cars were until I passed one, after a K9 search, they let me go with a warning.
1974 Chevrolet Nova (Blue (a little bit purple after my Macco mistake))


It is a 350 R out of a '77 Firebird. I rebuilt it after it caught on fire in Ft. Riley totaling it. I bought her back from the insurance co. It has 10:1 TRW forged pistons, Comp Cam w/241 duration, double roller timing chain, a Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, all being fed by a Holley 750. The cylinders looked perfect so I didn't bore it out any.
Black, I just put in some some bucket seats out of a Nissan 300ZX Turbo, with all the electrical buttons to play with. I am going to re-upholster everything black leather.
Blue, kinda Purple after my mistake of taking her to Macco.....NEVER take your ride to Macco!!!
I am going to put in a nice sound system, I had a nice one in there, but after it had to sit for 5 years I just ripped everything out, and gonna start fresh.
Stock for now, except for the disc brake conversion kit I just picked up the other night.
Wheel and Tire
It has been sitting for 5 years. I am looking into some nice rims and meat.
