Don Estel’s 69 Nova SS

Story by Don Estel I bought this Nova SS in 2019 from a shop in Oregon. The car came with a 509 hp 502 GenVI motor and a Tremec TKO 600 5 speed trans and 12 bolt with 3:73 gears. The prior owner performed a 2 year restoration ending in 2004 and only put 800 miles on the car at the time I purchased it. I drove the car for a couple of months when I decided I wanted to make … [Read more...]

Project Collateral Damage: Measure Twice, Cut Once

Building The Ultimate 1970 Pro Touring Chevelle - "Collateral Damage" A few months ago our very own Lateral-G owner Jody picked up a 1970 Chevelle. He had a vision for the car - handles like it's on rails, tons of power, stop on a dime, and to be able to put ten's of thousands of miles a year on it.

Project No-Name: Blown LS Engine Build V3.0

Holley LS Oil Pans – Which One Works Best?

Holley LS Oil Pans - 302-1, 302-2, 302-3 On Project No-Name Chevelle we have been using the Holley 302-1 oil pan for years. With the stroker LS3 it was the perfect pan for the engine and the car. The only downside was that when turning hard the inner tie-rods would hit the oil pan at full lock. We were going to weld some stops on to fix the issue, but didn't want to lose … [Read more...]

Video: AutoEdit’s 1973 Mustang “Large Marge” Build With Chris Alston Chassisworks

"Large Marge" 1973 Mustang Build With lots of time at home recently we've been watching a lot of YouTube. One channel we stumbled upon was that of Jason Lewis of AutoEdits and his 1973 Mustang. At first glance, a '73 Mustang isn't a popular choice. If people are restoring a '73 Mustang, it's usually the popular Mach 1 versions, not a base Mustang. But the more we watched … [Read more...]
