Fresh out of the build shop was Joe Kosiba's small-block '63 Nova. "I'd like to see maybe an eight out of it, but the car's brand new," quipped Kosiba. In shakedown passes, the Hoffman Estates, IL-based Chevy ran 9.65 at Union Grove, WI. The combo consists of a 406 small-block with Brodix Track 1 heads, Edelbrock Super Victor manifold, a Holley 950 HP carb, a COMP cam, and a NOS Big-Shot nitrous kit. Running gear is a Turbo 350 with a 9-inch Ford rear loaded with 3.50 gears.
