A '67 Nova Packin' Over 600 Ponies

What is it about us car guys that just gotta have more power? So much so that we'll sacrifice such luxuries as comfort, practicality, looks...well, just about anything. Is it that we've seen one too many episodes of the Tool Man fixing up tractors, washing machines, and grunting chants of, "Aghhh . . . aghhh . . .aggh . . . more power!" Or is it something else? We here at the SC court have ruled in favor of Larry Frasier, it's just to gnarly when you put your foot into something and it's gone!

Yeah, there's nothing like putting your foot into something and feeling your body get sucked back into the seat tighter than a tube top on spring break. No one knows this feeling better than Larry. His '67 Nova is packin' over 600 horses under the hood. However, Frasier still remembers the first time he stood on his car, before the Pro Charger. The Nova was runnin' just regular old radials when he stood on it and the car went sideways. Right then and there he knew he had a problem.

He went back to the drawing board and decided that a pair of Mickey Thompson's ET Streets outta solve the problem. Solve the problem they did, but now there was room for improvement. Larry figured since he's now running more rubber in the back, he'd run more horses in the front. A Pro Charger 600B with 7 pounds of boost was added to the Chevy 406. The motor was already putting out 480 hp. Once the setup was locked, cocked, and ready to rock, there's really only one way to sum it all up, and the license plate says it all, "ITL ROCK."
