  • Vehicle Overview

    My 72 Nova, I bought this car 20 years ago and it is your prime example of a home build driver quality hot rod. Over the years it's been a family cruiser, 1/4 mile drag car, the run down to the store and get the grocery car, my drive to work car, the autocross car. And now it is still ALL the above and also the car my wife and I enjoy driving anywhere!!!! We have done many roadtrips with this car such as, Hot Rod Power Tours, FM3 Cars and Cones Roadtrips, the Chowder Run the w/Year One Crew, many UMI Autocross events, few Good Guys events, Cruising the Smokies w/ the Autocross Guys, as well as drove from Maryland to Utah, Vegas, and the Grand Canyon for vacation trip. (with no a/c) Which has since been added.... I guess the point is simple with this car. I guess the best overview statement for this car would best be: I have Drove it, Broke it, Fixed it, and will continue to until the day I can't drive it anymore, I love my car...

    Future Plans

    Drive the hell out of it...… Break it and make it better.... Once my wife and I pay off our house in a few years we are planning a roadtrip where we drive the Nova from MD to Seattle, WA where we meet my brother and park the car for a week to take a Cruise Ship to Alaska and back. Then back in the car and roadtrip down the Pacific Coastline to Cali where we will head back east. we figure it will be about a 4-6 week trip in the car. just going to see to states in our Chevrolet. Future Plans to the car is to try to find a Fuel Injection to work with the Blower and give good drivability yet not lean out under boost like the Fitech unit I tried and it cost me 2 motors in the process. Also going to add an elec Vac pump from the brakes. And would like to try an elec fan for cooling.
