ABANDONED 1974 Nova Drives 250 miles to a TRACK DAY!

122K views9

    Ike bought this 1974 crew cab Chevrolet Nova with a 350 cubic inch small block V8. He bought the car from an auction for $800. The car had clearly been sitting for years- the registration sticker on the windshield indicates it was last on the road in 1998, meaning this car has been off the road for 22 years. In today's episode we get invited to a high performance driving event called Motorsports 4 the Masses, so we're preparing the Nova to drive 250 miles to the track!

      A 4 barrel carb would wake it right up and emissions delete

    2. Greg Steele

      Same color as my '75 nova with a 262 v8. Subframe got so rusted out, it would scrape the ground when I did donuts. Also the front seats would lift up when I hit the brakes kinda fast, cuz the unibody would flex an we would hit our heads on the ceiling. Oh yeah, one day the cabin started filling up with smoke becuz the holes in the floor & carpet was sitting on the exhaust, caught fire, had to put it out with a bunch of snow & put a hubcap over the hole

    3. jbmckean

    18. Pablo Janski.

    20. doitman RV


    21. desync0

      Does the rearend have an LSD? Probably the clutches not being happy because you didn't add friction modifier?

    22. Pedro Huerta

      that nova sounds like a 4cylinder car at first but then a v8 lol

    23. kevin auman

    24. Donald Shetter

      I'm pretty sure I heard the Nova telling some rod knock jokes

    25. Stephen H

      Fantastic Episode! I've been a loyal viewer since the first trail master build, and it's been amazing watching this channel grow. It would be really cool toss in a special episode like this once every few months, this was a ton of fun to watch!

    26. 250kSubsIsFarFetched

      Sounds mean as shit

    27. Rogelio Nose Best

      Update us on the 53 chevy

      1. Isaac it'll be fine

        In the garage

    28. Poledancerz1

      Does anyone know how much it costs to do a track day like this? Seems pretty fun

    29. Haggard Automotive

      This episode is awesome. I love that the nova killed it.

    30. Joshua Bell

      Ike really knows how to handle a car!

    31. Will Barfield

      my dream car is a Miata I think I want an old American muscle now. like Sean from the Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift

    32. Paul S

      Lid flip, 25hp easy!

    33. Randy Gaskin

      Change the oil. Get rid of the sludge man🏆

    34. Aaron Mailhiot

      So you guys going to build the nova into a track car

      1. Isaac it'll be fine


    35. Oscar Thorpe

      20:29 that sounds like the IMRC on my ST170, being that you've got a 2.5 duratec it may well also be a variable inlet manifold. DURATEC KICKED IN YO

    36. Slow Shed Garage

      Looked like a ton of fun. Imagine driving a vette on a road course and look in the mirror and see grandma coming in her 4 door.

    37. escapenguin

      John forgetting to coach during the second lap because he was laughing so hard was funny as hell.

    38. glen Decuir

      Done watched it three times already just got done

    39. Benny T

      Nova supremacy

    40. pat loughner

      My friend had a Nova like this when I was in High-School and we used to take turns slamming it into reverse at high speeds. Needless it didnt last to long. Thanks.

    41. Jessica Conklin

      how much do you want for the nova??

      1. Isaac it'll be fine

        Sorry. Its not for sale

    42. TheTrueVoiceOfReason

      Truly bench (seat) racing!!!

    43. Edmond Pecot Jr.

      shaking up Jesus a little bit lol

    44. Jacob Thornock

      At first I didn't have time to watch this, but am glad I went back to do it. Way to shred them tires Isaac, and great driving from both of you. Makes me want to get out to a event and try my hand at it.

    45. chad l

      rod is going

    46. Dylan Hastings

      Came here from the live stream on Isaac's channel, already watched once but a second time won't hurt !

    47. handyhippie65

      now you understand how 4dr. novas got to be police pursuit vehicles in some areas. 'cause they be a shittin and gettin! put some better rubber, disc brakes in front, headers, and a 750 cfm 4 bbl. carb and you'll have a nice little sleeper there fairly cheap. aka, a grocery getter with get up and go!

    48. cake pie

      28:39 - "miata, miata, subaru, miata, ...... ...... .... ?!??!?!?!?!, mustang, bmw and a miata". Had a good laugh at the pause! That's a Porsche 944, dude. :)

    49. John Boy Gordon


    50. Visual Evidence

      11:55 yeah it's about to be like Cheech and Chong up in here too fellas, lol :D

    51. Jason Hancock

      That kinda sounds like a rod knock you can hear it on the video when you start it cold try some Sea Foam

    52. šÿčø phãt

    53. David Kelm

      AWESOME !

    54. CaneAtvse

      Hey believe it or not the guys at motor trend and roadkill actually tested different intake methods and flipping the lid like that actually did improve flow and gained a few ponies under the hood probably only 1 or 2 hp but still every little bit counts lol. The best intake they found was just an old metal fruit bowl out of the kitchen they cut the bottom out of and stuck it on with no filter at all and that did better even compared against the Holley intakes and filters or edelbrock intakes

    55. James Byerly

      A 74 Nova SS was my first car. This video is packed with nostalgia!

    56. Kyrgyzstan New Mexico

      You should do more classic car vids like this

    57. Bryce Penaluna

      Gave the old drums and bench seat a work out.

    58. Richard Leswing

      Hey guys the nova is awesome. I own a 74 2 door nova, with a 383 stroker. I run a Facebook page called 73-74 Nova's plenty of used parts on there for sale.

    59. Wade Reuty

      Ike's nova handles like all my builds in Forza lol Fast on the straights and shit in the corners!

    60. Mark Rivera

      I dont get ot what os John taking over Ikes channel? Isnt thisb- IT'LL BE FINE CHANNEL? Damn John let Ike have his shone too

    61. Johnny Turbo

      I would like to see more videos like this one.. WHO'S WITH ME??? ( thumbs up if you agree)

    62. Mitch Lec

      Doesn't Isaac build engines and cars for a living?

      1. Mitch Lec

        @Isaac it'll be fine oh ok, you need to build and clean up this Nova. It would look real nice! And like y'all said, a nice set of mufflers 👌

      2. Isaac it'll be fine

        I used to

    63. Dan Stewart

      My first car was a 1978 Chevy Nova Custom 4 door mint green with a 305 auto...loved seeing this video!

    64. Tarren June

      God I love the sound of the 2 Barrel

    65. Coyote _Cliff253

      pretty much a go kart track for your car

    66. Ben B

      That's a strangely worded title there, it's like "Reviving an" was tacked onto the front

    67. Jeremydebragg Bragg

      John doing too much talking ike is drinking and seem like John trying too hard

    68. Zark Muckerberg

      The nova really needs a sway bar.

    69. Potato Tyrant

      Awesome episode, the Roadkill boys would be proud.

    70. Aaron Farrin

      All right some car content on cars and cameras

    71. Kaleb Landrum

      yo whats that mod he did, i got an 89 chevy truck with a 350 in it i want to do this to

    72. Lovely Job

      I enjoyed that!

    73. Chase Edgecombe

      That pour nova ur probably never gonna do anything with it and also you guys have no personality

    74. Michael Whaley

      Rumble Could be torque convertor, There is a product that will fix it. Just pour it in.

    75. Rrandom stuff with Roran

      Novas got some body roll

    76. DSMattitude

      Why am I not surprised these guys picked up a 4 door nova?

    77. M Riippa

      did u check the oil? it ill be fine hahaha

    78. ETXJeeprider

      Drove that thing like a Carolina moonshiner. You should seriously upgrade it with new tired better suspension and try again and new brakes

    79. 6Speed Media

      Dudes! Please tell me were gonna get more nova videos

      1. Isaac it'll be fine

        depends on how well the video does on views

    80. Squarebody Passion

      The air filter mod is so everything own

    81. packofhounds

      I had the air cleaner lid flipped on my GMC Jimmy 350 tbi back in 1990 and my brother and I used to refer to the sound it made as "a flock of geese".

    82. packofhounds

      Little did Ike know that driving all of the contraptions over the years gave him the expertise needed to ace this mission.

    83. pmaster587

      Ike said . "if you dont mind buddy , im gonna do some DRIVIN"

    84. Chris Perks

      I would have had napa make the line for me

    85. Chevy Guy 55

      Now THIS is what Roadkill should have stayed like. Don't get me wrong the new episodes are really cool, but they just don't have the same charm.

    86. Zack Supal

      I dont care how old i get everytime a bottle of gear oil makes a fart noise i gotta giggle a little

    87. Myles The P-Nut

      At this point they should li d he called CartsandCameras

    88. john weisinger

      Has that Pulp Fiction vibe. Needs a blanket in the back seat and John needs to be wearing a UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs shirt. 😂🤣

    89. Piedmont Cajun '81

      Oh man....April of '98 God...those were the days.....

    90. Piedmont Cajun '81

      Holy shit! It's a BEARDED IKE!!

    91. Todd Tedder

      When the Nova hit the track, it sounded like the car chase in Point Break.

    92. boof studios

    93. Mike over cash
