The Roger Caster– and Grady Bryant–owned and driven “Sump’n Else #2” 1966 Chevrolet Nova featured a T-Bar chassis and an injected big-block Chevrolet on nitro-methane. Although the orange Nova looked like a typical steel-bodied mid-’60s Funny Car conversion, it was unique in the fact that its body was cantilevered so that the mass would actually shift backward under hard acceleration, transferring more weight over the back wheels; 8.40s at 156.00 were typical for its day. This car was restored back in the late 1990s and is now housed in a private collection. Photo by Dan Wadley.
