This week's featured classified ad is a blown 1967 Chevrolet Nova. It's listed at $60,000 and is located in California.  

This silver beast has a 496 big block with an 871 blower and aluminum heads. Sanderson headers lead to a Flowmaster exhaust and Wilwood brakes help keep this monster in check.

With the opening of the  "Snake and Mongoose" movie this week, we're feeling nostalgic for the early days of racing - not the long hours, endless travel or dangerous situations, but the bootstrap nature of the sport itself.  Racing is still largely a DIY enterprise for most people, and we celebrate that spirit this week with articles on Kurt "Lucky" Weber, a look ahead to the Goodguys WIX Filters Speedway Nationals, and a Young Rodder's rebuilt Plymouth Fury that is more street scene than race track, but still embodies that DIY spirit.  Have tales of race days and race tracks of the past?  Send us your stories and photos to [email protected]
