Larry Larson drove his 2,300-horsepower, twin-turbocharged,  ’66 Nova 1,200 miles through torrential rain to The Strip in Las Vegas, clocked a 6.95 at 209 miles per hour, and drove home to Michigan.

Larson’s Nova has a 565 Chevy big-block V8 and all the goodies, including an AFT triple-disc clutch and a double-throw-down CS2 5-speed Lenco drag transmission. And he drives it on the street. Madness. Glorious, beautiful madness. Larson runs Larson Race Cars out of Milan, Michigan and thus has all the expertise and connections at his disposal to build a truly stupefying street car.
