The following pictures are from Atco Raceway in Atco, NJ. The date is March 19, 1994 and the Nova is yet to be painted. The 327 was installed a year and a half ago but these are the first passes down the 1/4 mile with the new 3.90 posi rear. The conditions were only fair. The temperature was cool but there was a strong cross wind. The carb was still setup to run with the 3.42 gears. All passes this day were in the 13 second range with a best elapsed time of 13.7 @ 99.2 mph. The pictures are a little blurry but I didn't take them because I was driving.
