What's Lamer – '72 Nova Or a '77 Omega? One of Them is About to Be Anything But

By: Todd Veney | 08/24/2018 < Back to Motor Life Home

What's more lame (lamer?) – a beat-up '72 Chevy Nova or a gutless '77 Oldsmobile Omega? Right – they're both lame. But soon they won't be. When Holley's team of engineers is done with one of these ancient, forgotten relics of days gone by, it'll be fast – and maybe even kinda cool. The plan: Pull off a complete LS swap on one of them. The question: Which one?

Stay tuned to Holley's new video series "2018 Holley Lame Off Intro – Chevy Nova Versus Oldsmobile Omega," where Holley Social Media Strategist Keith Jesse and Holley Digital Marketing Specialist Michael Seymour guide you through the entire journey. Which LS engine and which transmission go into which car has yet to be determined, but could one of these things actually run in the nine-second zone on a quarter-mile drag strip? Follow along and find out for yourself! The chosen one will be unveiled at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Ky., Sept. 7-9 during LS Fest.
