Max Gould and his dad worked side by side on Max's first car, a 1970 Nova. A high school student, Max didn't have much experience working on cars, but he did his research and learned hands on by turning the wrenches himself. He saved up his money and part by part, he built a great, LS Fest Burnout Competition champion of a car in just 8 months!
The folks at
Driving Line asked him what his favorite garage work was so far on the car and Max answered:
"My favorite garage work so far has been installing my Tremec TKO 600 transmission".
Driving Line did a couple articles on Max, first "RIDE OF THE WEEK: A MADE-FOR-THRILLS '70 CHEVY NOVA" which lists many of the components of his build and has a great video too. The second article was an interview and video of him driving his car and doing burnouts that probably has EVERY kid EVER dying of jealousy (and well, adults too). Trust us, if you're feeling burned out and tired of all the meticulous work put into your build, this video will fire you up as you imagine doing burnouts thanks to Max! "WATCH BURNOUT MAX"

Graveyard Carz Superbird Clone - SST Equipped
If you've been watching
season 8 of Graveyard Carz, you know they've been working on a '70 Superbird clone. It debuted at SEMA with the new Mopar "Hellcrate" 6.2 L HEMI Engine Kit. In this video, you'll hear Mark Worman talk about how he wanted to keep everything inside and out looking factory. If you have watched his shows, you know he's a purist when it comes to Mopars. That's exactly why he chose to put a TREMEC 6-Speed from Silver Sport Transmissions in the Superbird. He loved the looks and performance of our kit so much on the
1971 HEMI Cuda, he called us up again. Do you need a PerfectFit™ for your Mopar? Get a
