    Continent sized rock formations(Greater Adria) have been found by seismologists in the deep mantle of the earth. One article I read said that it was the result of the subduction of continental plates ; yet another article thought it was the result of the early formation of the planet
    some four billion + years ago .

    The Nova was offered in 1971 and 1972 with the RPO-YF1 Rally Nova option. In 1977 thru 1979 the Nova was offered with the RPO-Z26 Nova Rally option. The first time around, the Rally option was a pseudo musclecar. It had the look of a musclecar with stripes and rally wheels but it could not be ordered with the SS-only L48 350 4-bbl engine. You could get a 250, a 307 or the L65 350 2-bbl. This was done for 2 reasons, people who wanted the musclecar look could have it without paying for the more expensive Super Sport option. The other reason was because of the surcharges applied to owners of "real" musclecars. The SS was more expensive to insure because of the top engine. The Rally option ended after 1972 because beginning in 1973, you could order the Super Sport with any engine (250, 307, L65 350 2-bbl and the L48 350 4-bbl). You could also now order a non-SS Nova with the top L48 engine

    The second time around the Rally option replaced the Super Sport option dropped after 1976 and it even carried the same code: Z26. The option was basically just a name change as it was mostly the same as the 1976 Super Sport option. It included different stripes, the grille was now chrome instead of black and the F40 suspension was no longer part of the Z26 option (however it could be ordered separately).

    One common mistake made by people is they call it a "Nova RS" or a Nova Rally Sport". The word sport was never used in the Nova Rally option. The Rally Sport (or RS) option was on Camaros, not Novas. Also, unlike Camaros, you could not combine the Rally option with the SS option. This was because of the reasons mentioned above. The 1971-72 Rally was a "cheaper SS" and for the 1977-79 Rally, there was no SS option to combine with.

    I hope this clears up some of the confusion surrounding the Rally options. They are special cars with a very limited run. Only 7,700 built in 1971, 33,319 in 1972, 6,901 in 1977, 6,903 in 1978 and 2,299 for 1979. For those restoring 1971-72 and 1977-79 Rallys, Stencils and Stripes Unlimited, Inc. makes reproduction stripe kits.

    Actually...no. I got pulled over by an Arkansas cop for doing the speed limit. The only available option for pulling over was a truck pull-over lane going up a hill. The rest of the highway was a 2-laner. But then, he was just looking for any lame excuse to pull me over.

    I also got pulled over by a rabid detective who was flashing his headlights behind me on a busy highway. I refused to move over just because he thought he was more important than the rest of us on the road, and I WAS doing the speed limit. I had him really pissed off too, but he packed up and ran when I started asking him for his ID.

    According to the Missouri law I posted previously, everybody is supposed to stuff themselves into the right lane and only pass in the left. If you are driving cheek & jowl with the lane on the right, you are supposed to squedge yourself into the right lane and make damn sure the ******* tailgating you isn't held up, regardless of the speed limit or the prevailing traffic velocity. Of course, the poor bastard you are tailgating is supposed to pull over for you, too. And the tailgater is still obliged to move over for the guy behind him. Those of us with any sense know that this interpretation of the law just doesn't make any sense at all.

    This particular law seems to have been written so as to allow for a very wide application of police discretion. I don't think any reasonable judge will hold that morning rush hour still means that you should move over for faster traffic.
