Classics Chevy Nova Takes A Dodge Challenger Beatdown
Mercedes G-Class SUV is quickest to fly off dealer lots
The boxy Benz managed to beat out other hot sellers like the C8 Corvette for that top spot.You probably think that it'd be something affordable and practical like a Honda or Toyota , but no, the car in the US that spends the least amount of time on dealer lots as of May 2021 is none other than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV.
It's Mopar vs Chevy time.
For as long as there have been cars in America there have been rivalries between competing automotive companies. Whether it's, Ford vs , or GM vs Mopar we Americans love the thrill of competition. That is the American way, as a great man once said “if you ain't first, you're last”. Today's subject focuses on the latter example of American rivalries. More specifically Dodge vs Chevy, this friendly competition between some of Mopar and Chevy’s best has largely subsided in the modern era due to the Chevy Performance lineup being reduced to just two cars. However, in the past Chevrolet once produced some of America’s greatest muscle cars.
1954 Chevy Corvette From Brian Wedding Collection Is Now Available On Proxibid
Earlier this week, the news broke that the Brian Wedding Collection was heading to auction in Indiana. Now bidders can place their bid from anywhere thanks to Proxibid. In 1954, the Chevrolet Corvette entered its second year of production. 1954 Corvettes were very similar to the 1953 model, with a couple of key differences. There’s lots to love about the C1 Corvettes, but one of the top reasons is the amazing, classic design. This 1954 Chevrolet Corvette certainly is an excellent example of the drop-dead gorgeous nature of these early Corvettes.
Dodge was, of course, no slouch with haymakers such as theR/Ts. So it was only natural that enthusiasts jumped on the opportunity to see these wild cars take down the competition. Chevy wasn't going down without a fight and began producing some of America’s most iconic high-performance muscle cars. Cars like the Chevy Nova and Chevelle were beating the competition left and right. This, of course, made the Mopar boys a little red in the face and Dodge soon clapped back just as Dodge always does.
This brings us to today's race between a race-ready 1969 Chevrolet Nova and one mean-sounding Challenger R/T. Under the hood of the Nova sits a gigantic 396ci V8 engine which is producing somewhere in the ballpark of 375 horsepower which was more than enough to push this 3,538lbs best down the track at a blisteringly fast 12.88 seconds. However, it wasn't nearly enough to beat our friend in the Challenger as he sped down the track with the assistance of a 440ci 6-pack V8. This led the Challenger R/T to reach the quarter-mile mark in just 11.69 seconds. The race had an obvious winner and after all, was said in done it looks like the Mopar still took the crown.
