    Welcome to

    the site!! So, a 66 Chevelle, nice. Which road you going down, gasser or hot rod? Don't see to many 66-67 Chevelles with straight axles but I think it'd be a great look myself and definitely set you apart from the pack. Which ever though, gasser or hot rod, everyone here loves photos and build updates. Hope to see you start a build thread on the Project Update page and don't be a stranger.

    Most Chevelle's were done with coil overs. Not SEGA aproverd.

    What's with the constant reference to what SEGA approves? You do know their rules don't match the real NHRA rules back then?

    Hey Vall

    I believe I remember an old adage from when I was a kid that I think pretty much covers the SEGA governing body and that's: "my ball, my rules"; I'm sure you probably remember it too. That's what was once so nice about drag racing decades ago; you had a choice. The NHRA, the AHRA and the UDRA just to name a few. When the NHRA came out with their 3 "professional" classes; top fuel, funny car, pro stock and kicked the gas class to the curb they lost me as a member and supporter. The other thing I really thought was bull shit was when bracket racing was initiated. I mean what was the point when guys had a 10 second car and were running on a 10.30 or higher dial in and back pedaling on the top end, all that did was pervert the sport. But then it's really no different than guys running in super gas today with cars that are quite capable of running in the high 8s but are running on a 9.90 index and hope that their 2 or 3 step box wins the race for them.

    I agree Steve. But SEGA is a small segment of today's Gas class type cars, and what they do down in the SE isn't representative of the rest of the USA, nor representative of what the 1967 rules were. So worrying about whether a car meets SEGA rules isn't worth the time unless the owner plans to run SEGA races.
    Both of my gassers wont meet SEGA rules, and i could care less. It's a long drive from Oregon to their track, so I wont lose sleep over running an automatic, or coilovers.
