Too bad you guys don't allow Lencos. This little blown alcohol Nova would otherwise fit in pretty well.
Cragar also makes a lighter weight, spun aluminum wheel- it's called a 612 SS. It looks like the old SS wheel.
It just takes a little more power to turn em, LOL.

Great thread, and great car, nice work!
Are you going to run any of the ANRA events at Famoso?
That's a bad ass Willys. Love the yellow Nova in the other lane,also.
I would like to attend the race, but it is way too far for me to tow....
This one's not a street car, but lots of fun to drive.

There are lots of great looking cars in thread! I especially like the 'strange bird' Falcon!
Here's an in car video from a couple of months...
ST1200 is an excellent transmission. You will love it. Just make sure to leave the water box in high gear, and it will be bulletproof.
Thanks for the compliments from everyone that posted. Everybody's been really cool.
I launch it at 6k, shift at 6800, and go through the traps...

Nice purchase! I plan on leaving the ST1200 in my car when I retire it to street duty.
Easily doable if you run it on alcohol.
Thanks for the kind words.
I just got them back from being coated, and they look much cleaner now.
Any decent blown race car needs a set of zoomies, so I ended making a set.
They're all finished, and getting ceramic coated now. The car sounds...
Larry Fator recently painted the lettering on my Nova. It's all done in silver leaf, although it doesn't show in the photo.
Alot of nice blown cars in this thread!
This one gets down the track easily running 8.70s at 155 mph.
Here's another great video by Frank. I was driving the Nova in the far lane. Good thing the driver of the Olds was slow to leave or it would have...
You're going to love it. I've run one for the last four years, and taken it apart twice for inspection, and to change gear ratios, and the only...
Aren't you running an adjustable sintered iron disk now? It sure acts like one in the video.
After watching the burnout video, you have smoked...
This one is a Mooneyham 6-71 with an Enderle bug catcher on a 383 sbc. I've run tuneups with this setup from 800-1100 h.p. on methanol.
