Here is Joe Camuglia's 1969 Nova SS. Joe is the original owner, having bought the car when he got out of the Army in 1969. It still has the original factory paint and the original factory interior. Approximately 3-4 months after buying the car, he yanked the engine and replaced the intake, carb, heads, cam, installed headers, changed rear gears and went racing for fun. Since it's a four-speed car, he said he really wasn't that consistent, but usually took home a trophy in his class. The best time was a 12.51 at 110. The engine has been through a few configurations, the last one being done about two years ago. It still has the numbers matching block, stock crank and rods. The intake is an Edelbrock Performer RPM for the Quadrajet, with a built carb from Jones Carburetion. The heads are the ones he installed back in 1969, 2.02 fuelie "Corvette" ones. He added Comp Cams steel roller rockers to fit under the stock valve covers and a rumpy Isky cam. Hs is still using the same Hooker headers from 1969 that he had aluminized back then. The latest addition was a Flowmaster exhaust system.
