Eric Wood
1991 Beretta GT

Quick Take: Eric says he thinks of his 1991 Beretta GT as the SS Chevy should have built. “I swapped in a 3.4-liter V-6 from a 2004 Impala and installed modified Grand Am headers with a K&N intake,” Eric tells us. “The front sway bar is FE7 Beretta GTZ and the rear, a fat Addco. The clutch is a 2+ from Spec and I converted the open diff to a limited-slip with the help of Engineered Performance. My best time is a 14.96 at 96 mph.”

1989 Chevy Camaro 2/5

Jeff Conaway
1989 Camaro RS

Quick Take: From Topeka, Kansas, Jeff’s mom bought this 5.0-liter 1989 Camaro RS convertible brand-new, complete with a five-speed stick. Jeff said his RS has 42,000 original miles and has never been driven in the winter. It’s optioned with air conditioning and power windows and the factory wheels have never seen the road—they’re still in boxes!

1938 Chevy 3/5

Jeff Cross
1938 Chevy

Quick Take: An oldie but a goodie, Jeff’s 1938 Chevy pickup runs a 350/350 drivetrain and sits on an S-10 chassis with power steering, power brakes, and runs 80 mph all day long with the A/C blasting.

1967 Chevy Chevell 300 4/5

Stephen Shell
1967 Chevelle 300

Quick Take: Stephen’s 1967 Chevelle 300 Deluxe has just over 47,000 original miles, and is running a 427-inch big-block, beefed TH400, and 4.10 rearend gears. For rolling stock it has 275 drag radials on steelies with dog dish hubcaps. The car originally came with a 250-inch six-cylinder and a Powerglide. Stephen is the third owner, and says it runs 11.50s.

1970 Chevy Nova 5/5

Pete Urban
1970 Nova SS

Quick Take: Pete bought his 1970 Nova SS brand new, stuffed in 4.56 gears, and has drag raced it ever since. A recent addition to the engine compartment is a 406-inch small-block with AFR heads. The transmission is the original M22 Muncie four-speed. In 2011, Pete’s Nova was used as a picture car for an episode of White Collar titled “Dentist of Detroit.” It was filmed in Staten Island.
