'77 Olds Omega vs. '72 Nova: "Lame Off," Episode 2

By: Todd Veney | 10/11/2018 < Back to Motor Life Home

Chevy Novas make great hot rods – just not '72 Novas. And Olds Omegas? Please. They've never been anyone's idea of ground-pounding street machine or a high-performance drag car, have they? One of these slugs is going to fade right back to obscurity, but the other will be completely reborn when a team of Holley engineers beats all the lame right out it, drops an LS engine with a complete Holley EFI system between the frame rails, and turns it into something that's actually fast. To follow along, check out Episode 2 of Holley's new video series "2018 Holley Lame Off – Chevy Nova Versus Oldsmobile Omega." Social Media Strategist Keith Jesse and Digital Marketing Specialist Michael Seymour will be your hosts (Don't worry, they won't be doing all the mechanical work). When it's done, look for the winning car to be solidly in the nine-second zone on the Beech Bend Raceway Park quarter-mile drag strip.
