If there’s one thing every junior gearhead has in common, it’s a vision of what the ultimate street machine would look like, the way it would sound, and the wheels it would have. They also share an insatiable craving for raw horsepower. Noah Knudsen of Frontenac, Minnesota, was no different, and at 16, swapped the keys to his ’79 Cordoba straight across for what is now a jaw- dropping ’72 Hurst/Olds replica. You may think the trade was a no-brainer, but for a high school kid on a budget, it was hard to let go of a perfectly good running car for one that looked more like it was on its last legs. However, seven years in the making as funds allowed, the results speak for themselves. Seems to us like it was the right choice.
