Racinfan83 - '71 Nova SS

Here are some pics I took yesterday. I used the Veterans Memorial at I-70 and TR Hughes for a backdrop - I support our Veterans - and I thought that my Vietnam era car would be fitting if I took pics here. :yes:























The car is a '71 Nova "SS" (I think)
I do not have a build sheet so I can only assume that is is an SS - or is a good reproduction of one. Either way - I like it!

The engine is a 396 out of a '68 Impala, with '73 454 heads. Harland Sharp roller rockers, .629/.605/295 lift Crane cam, Edelbrock Performer Intake, Holley 750 Double Pumper carb, Mallory 140 Electric Pump. Full MSD Ignition, Optima battery. Hooker Competition headers, 2 1/2" exhaust, not sure what mufflers are on it but it sounds good! :yes:

TH 400 Tranny, 12 bolt posi rear with 3.42 Richmond gears.

Rear tires are 255/60/15 TA Radials on 15x8x4.5 "SS" Rally wheels from Wheel Vintiques, fronts are 205/70/14 on 14x6 stock "SS" Rally wheels.

Interior is basically stock, with the addition of a Autometer tach and shift light. It is set up for factory A/C - but unfortunately that is not still on the car :(

Sound System: see exhaust.....:devil::devil:
It has the stock AM radio which does not work. I have new 6x9 speakers in the rear deck - but no tunes yet.

I kinda got tired of looking at the same old sig pic I have used for like 3 years now - so I figured I should go get some new ones :yes::yes::D
The car really doesn't get out of the garage much :( We are either busy doing other things like work or the cat rescue thing, or housework, or whatever... I decided I'd wax it up and go get some new pics. I drove by the Memorial, and the lightbulb came on that I could take the car there and get some nice pics with a fitting background.
Thanks for all the nice comments guys! :yes::yes::yes:

Here is my sorry attempt at a video. Sound is good - don't have a clue why the picture is so grainy??? First time I ever tried a video....
Sorry bout the smoke at the end - it loads up when idling and I haven't figured out how to fix that yet....:(:(
