"Drive it" is the unofficial motto of Super Chevy. Gary and Natalie Gray of Windsor, Colorado, do just that with their 1957 Chevy 150 two-door sedan. In just under four years since a total mechanical restoration by Windsor Street Rods (Colorado), the Grays have put nearly 38,000 miles on the odometer. Those miles encompass trips to California, Minnesota, Texas (three times), Arkansas, Arizona, and Utah. The original 265ci small-block has been bored .030-over and modified with a hydraulic roller valvetrain, Corvette-style heads, Edelbrock manifold, and topped with an MSD Atomic EFI. Classic Performance Products power steering and front disc brakes and Vintage Air A/C are a few of the many modern components that provide reliability and comfort as the Grays enjoy their road trips.

Back when Joe St. Antoine was a kid, he used to go to A&W hotrod Fridays with his dad. Joe's 1971 Nova build is based on a Yenko Nova he remembers that was always at those A&W shows. Under the hood is a Holley fuel-injected 468ci big-block filled with a Street Force cam, 502 heads, Eagle rods, and BRC pistons. Finishing off the drivetrain is a TH400 transmission, Gear Vendors overdrive, and a rearend filled with 4.11 gears. Joe's buddies over at Jeeps Auto Body sprayed the final paint after Joe performed the complete frame-off restoration. The interior is all new. AutoMeter American Muscle gauges track the engine's vitals.
