    B…Bob Herman R …Ray Dwyer….They ran the ’55…sponsored the Nova …Think we need to hear from Frank Mengler or Bobby Schlegel for the answer.

    H/S Nova,
    Bobbu Schlegel should know this one.
    ‘Lil Miss Carnivorous’ ran in H/S.
    The sharp looking 70′ Rebel Machine 390/340HP.
    Equipped with famous ‘white stripe’ camshaft.
    Where are you ‘Captain Cool Daddy-O’
    Paulie
    Got to think a little. That 68′ should be a 350/295HP L-48 car to fit into H/S.
    Jason looks like your still hunting.
    Best guy for 68′ Nova’s. Jay at Jefferson Valley Service Station.
    Ran ‘Goldilocks’ SS/HA 396/325HP at that time.

    Gary Balph Might Know ,But it’s driving me nuts so I’m calling Herman.Darn…he’s under a truck fixing it…gotta call back later.By the way it says “in-NOVA-ion” on the front fender( I lettered it and don’t know ).

    Ok guys I really don’t know what the drag lingo is? Is H/S a class? The way that car is setting when it is launching it might be a BB car. Really need to get a closer look at that front fender for the motor badge.It could be a SB car and yes it would have the L48 350 295 hp motor.
    Yes I am still trying to locate some more information on my car. Every couple of months I get a new lead, follow it to a dead end then get frustrated and stop looking. I did google B+R speed speciatlies and came up with B+R speed supply in Verona PA. http://www.bandrspeedsupply.com/ So I gave them a call today and talked to the owner. They have been in buisness for a long time and said he don’t remember the car but a previous original owner still works part time and might remember it? I am going to call back tomorrow.
    I got the pictures from the ODF gallery it was the dover 300 not sure what year. Was that a special meet? I see the car in tow which makes me think it was a car with gears not road worthy? Out of all the pictures in the ODF gallery this was the only 68 nova. I seen a lot of 69 nova’s all lettered up. I actually saw one nova called Nova Cane. I actually tracked the owner down and I think his name was Tom Delanie. Spelling may not be correct. He bought the car new from Otto Chevrolet in Chatam NY. Tom bought the car home pulled the motor and made a trip to the machine shop for modifications. It was a drag car from day 2!
    It is a needle in a hay stack but this guy with the white 68 nova might remember my 68 nova if he was from the area?

    Thanks for all you help so who should I try next?

    Ray Dwyer, Bob Herman, Frank Mengler or Bobby Schlegel

    Awsome thanks Dino!
    Dino the way I understand it you did all the lettering around this time period. Do you remember a guy named Donnie Fuller from up my way. He did most of the lettering at Lebanon Valley speedway from the late 70s into the early 80’s. He was know as the Rube!

    Thanks again Jason

    Jason…. Try classracer.com That site has ALL info regarding NHRA Super Stock and Stock currently going on. It covers the whole country. The reason I recommend it is because almost all of our northeast guys that race rely on it. SOMEBODY on their is bound to recognize your car or have a connection. I’d recommend contacting Lee Valentine about your car also. I bet he knows. Good luck.
