I think my Jeep would give a 72 a run for it's money. Scary numbers...

Quote:
Those emissions standards combined with the fact that cars were now required to run on unleaded has and horsepower measurements were now expressed as net numbers rather than gross meant that the top engine choice, the 350 CID V8 that was standard in the top-of-the-line Nova SS was now rated at 165 horsepower, as opposed to 270 the year before. The two other engine options available for the base Nova suffered, as well. Standard in the base Novas was a 250 CID six-cylinder, and a 307 CID V8 was available that produced 130 horsepower.

I agree. A sleeping to me is something you wouldn't look at twice, or something you'd never expect to be fast. A 72 Nova doesn't fall in any of those 2.
