1970 Nova With A Cummins 4BT Diesel

1970_nova_cummins_4bt_diesel_06

This is the most unique Nova build I have ever seen. The builder took a 1970 Nova SS and swapped a turbocharged Cummins 4BT diesel outputting over 800 lb-ft of torque and “one hundred something” horsepower. The builder continued with a semi truck theme which is why you see the CB radio, eight-lug truck wheels, dually wheels, air horns etc. The Nova is currently for sale at the Racing Junk link below for $75,000 in case anyone is interested in buying one very unique Nova.

1967 Camaro With A Duramax Diesel V8

1967_camaro_with_duramax_diesel_swap_01

The owner of this Camaro purchased it from his mother when he was 18 for a senior graduation project. In 2012 he decided to really turn it into something special, a 1st generation powered by a turbocharged 2006 LBZ Duramax diesel V8. But this isn’t just some junkyard diesel being thrown into a busted muscle car. Looking through the build thread it doesn’t take too many pages before you realize the owner has really put in serious time and effort on this build. I am sure some will completely disagree with the direction but we are glad projects like this exist.
