Greetings All. About a year ago I came across a video on Competition Plus showing something called the Southeast Gassers. I watched it over and over, then started searching You Tube for more videos and OD'd in about 3 days. I sent an email to some cat named Quain and told him he was just killing me as I LOVED the days of manually-shifted 4-speeds and honest wheels up launches. Imagine my surprise when he wrote back and said he remembered me from the old Pro Stock days when I raced a Hemi Colt! At best, I was a B-player, but he must have seen me the few times I was at Shuffletown when I was living in Hudson and Clyde Hodges let me base out of his chassis shop. Well, I haven't been interested in drag racing much since bracket racing took over. The more I thought about it, and knowing that my wife and I are going to move to South Carolina in less than 2 years, I began to wonder if maybe I wanted to build a car and go racing with these crazy people. My wife is a great sport, too, and has even driven Super Gas cars and even raced some sand drags with VW-powered stuff in the 80's and 90's. Well, after about 3 months of torturing myself, I realized I just could not afford to wait until I get to SC to start a car. It took some persuading on my part with the wife, but she finally bought in and we decided to build a 1966 Nova, her favorite 60's muscle car. So, I'll try to keep posting pictures as we go along. Our goal is ta have the chassis and roll cage with body and suspension on by the end of summer. Maybe no interior, and likely not the drivetrain, but at least enough so it can be rolled around and onto a trailer, if needed. So here are some pictures of our progress.
