Anyone had their Nova out lately?
Took mine out today for a little cruise, always nice to make a little noise.

I bought it when I turned 16 with a 6 cylinder. Now I'm 20 and it has gone through 3 motor changes. It's now a 350 my dad and I built in our garage from the ground up with probably 425hp. We also just did a ford 9" upgrade and it now had 4 wheel disc brakes. I still take the car to college sometimes one or twice a week since I go to school close. Lovin it.





The grill and headlight bezels are now black but I don't have a picture of that yet.

Not yet. I was hoping to get it there this year with the new rear but that never happened. Hopefully next year. I would like to see it run in the mid to low 12's with the setup on it.

I am building a small block blower motor for it. Hoping to have it done by next summer. Depending on money.

Blower motor would be nice, total sleeper with the rally wheels.
What kind of traction bars do you have - you'll be needing them for sure:D
I also wanted to get to the track this year, but my lack of a rollcage doesn't jive with track rules.

I actually got a set of Lakewood traction bars the guy threw in with the rear. I haven't put them on yet.

Needing a cage means you must have a pretty quick nova. What do you have?

Impressive. I wish I could have a car that would run like that. I am more into the mechanics than the cosmetics of a car. I rather go fast than look good. That's why I had to buy a car with good body work and an ok paint job. So I can look good going fast. Haha
