1. Jerry Meyer–1955 Bel Air

Quick Shot: The owner outfitted the two-door sedan with a tan leather interior and a Gen 2 LT1 out of a C4 Corvette. Power flows to a Currie 9-inch, and Vintage Air keeps the cabin comfy.

2. Stephen D. Schnick–1973 Nova SS

Quick Shot: Stephen claims this is a legit four-speed SS. It now sports a 355, M-22 four-speed, four-point rollbar, and 12-bolt rear. He’s the third owner, and it’s got less than 74,000 miles on the odometer.

3. David Moiza–1967 Camaro

Quick Shot: This first-gen sports a 350-350. According to the owner, he built it for his wife, but she doesn’t drive it, so he does.

4. Harry Willard–1957 Bel Air

Quick Shot: The owner, a retired math and science teacher, bought this beauty in 1978 after being told about it by one of his students. Power comes from a 283 power pack, bored 0.060-inch over, and Harry installed an original three-speed overdrive transmission and 605 power steering.

5. Kenny Gallagher–1969 El Camino

In lieu of buying a new car, Kenny figured he could build a classic for less. Found five blocks from his house, the Elky now sports a 500hp small-block, Trick Flow Twisted Wedge heads, Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap intake, and an MSD 6AL ignition.

6. Zachary Hall, 1964 Chevy II Nova

Quick Shot: This is 18-year-old Zackary’s daily driver, and it packs a small-block with aluminum heads and a 650 Holley double-pumper. It is backed by a Turbo 350 with a 2500 stall converter, but lacks A/C, power brakes, power steering, and radio. Its best quarter-mile pass is 14.25 at 95—not bad for a car with a 3.08 gear and an open rear.
