    Default Doug Nasty's 73 Nova SS <> A WVSTREETS Feature...




    Ok so the guy’s name isn’t Doug Nasty... His first name is really Doug though, and is a member on here; screen name: bluenova. We hope you guys enjoy this as much as we did. Pictures also do not; do this car justice either, even though the pictures are great. A little background before we get started.

    I first talked to Doug just before the first airport drag race at Elkins Airport. He and his friend wanted to get some info and to get some understanding on things. We talked and at the end of the conversation I asked him what kind of car he had, he said "Just a Nova with a big block and my friend has a fast Trans am that he wants to race". Thinking nothing of it I forget about it until they show up at the gate driving a roll back with the Nova on top and pulling a car trailer.

    Of course this caused problems with the airport because you weren't allowed to trailer in cars, but because I was already mad at the airport I let them in and told them to have fun. When the airport questioned me about it, I told them “I’m paying you for the event and paying your employees to do nothing and I think I have some say”, they backed down. During the drags I ran into Doug who said they couldn't catch traction but they are having a blast.

    I noticed his friend's car parked right beside his which turned out to be a tube chassis, BBC Trans Am. I asked Doug what kind of power his car was making and he said "A little under 1000hp off the bottle and over 1000hp on the bottle." I didn't get to talk to him anymore that day because I was busy, but decided to keep in touch with him because he was cool and his car was bad ass.

    Since the last airport drag races we're keep in touch. After streets changed ownership I thought it would be cool to feature cool cars, trucks, shops, events etc. I was getting everything set up to shoot a shop and a cool car, but both of them had been canceled. So that opened the doors back up but what to shoot????

    You got it! I Called Doug and told him what was going on, and he was interested in getting the spot. So we set a date to come out to his place and shoot his car. We get there Doug is outside polishing his new trailer, and when I asked him why he had got a trailer. He said because and I quote “People almost take me out when we're traveling down the road, looking at the car and not paying attention". It was a very nice trailer by the way, but onto the show.

    I don't want to bore you guys anymore so here are the details, so here is what everyone has been waiting for... ( I know i missing some things) Big thanks to WV_STI and LOWCOP for the shots.. Now onto the pics!:
