Car Feature: Jeff King’s 1967 Nova

Jeff King's 1967 Nova The age old saying "labor of love" couldn't be more true with Jeff King and his 1967 Nova.

Going Full Throttle With Lokar Performance

On our 1965 Chevelle, project Teachers Pet, we experienced a problem that many people run across - throttle linkage. This is especially true with motor swaps, and going from a traditional engine with a carburetor to a fuel injected motor with a throttle body. In our case, the original SBC was long gone, and we had installed a warmed up LS2 several years back. In an attempt … [Read more...]
