This is a beautiful 1956 4-door Bel Air.  The car was purchased new in 1956 and has never left the family!  It was passed from generation to generation and has been meticulously cared for.  The car went through a frame off restoration 15 years ago and has been updated and modernized.  Since the restoration, it was a daily driver for four years and has waited covered in a garage until now.  Only taken out for cruise-ins and beautiful days in the past 10 years, there are fewer than 5000 miles on the restoration!

A brand new 350ci motor was installed and upgraded with 64cc Edelbrock aluminum heads and Edelbrock aluminum intake.  It has a Performer RPM cam, roller rockers, electronic ignition, and dual exhaust with Cherry Bomb mufflers.  All new stainless fuel lines feed a 650 Holley carb.  Backing that new motor is a classic 3-speed with column shifter.  A limited slip differential gets the power to the pavement.  The sound of this thing rolling off idle and climbing the revs is just hypnotizing.  Idling through a parking lot with that rumble causes heads to turn and thumbs-up to appear all around.  

During the restoration, the body was professionally blasted and stripped before being brought back to this incredible black finish.  All chrome was replaced or refinished.  All the body gaskets and bumpers have been replaced.  The floor pan and rocker panels were replaced while the hood and fenders were professionally repaired.  The interior has new carpet, new door panels, new headliner and has been upgraded with front 3-point seat belts.  The dash clock was professionally repaired and the radio is aftermarket with 10 disc changer.  There are new kick-panel speakers with buttons for the power door locks.

The front end was rebuilt with new polyurethane bushings and has been upgraded to disc brakes.  There is a new dual master cylinder with new stainless brake lines and proportioning valve.  The rear brakes were rebuilt with new wheel cylinders.  A 100A alternator and Vintage Air A/C round out the under-the-hood package.  New leaf springs and front and rear anti-sway bars improve the ride on this classic automobile.  

This vehicle is a family car that has been loved, maintained, and restored by the same family.  Two generations have grown up with this car and brought it to the current state.  If you're looking for a show-queen, this isn't the car for you.  This car carried us to school and work and has been in a garage for more than a decade since its restoration.  It has been a great father/son project and now it is available for you to add its next chapter.  The body looks great with a few small cracks and defects in the paint (shown in photo).  We want you to know that you are getting an unbelievably solid and uniquely upgraded car that isn't show car perfect.  The time has come for someone new to enjoy the vehicle so don't miss out on this incredible opportunity!                                Please email any questions to AJ at or you can reach me by phone at 202.596.5238

Artist imagines eerie world where cars have no wheels

Thu, 24 Jan 2013 14:16:00 EST

The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.
That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.

C7 Corvette makes inaugural ad appearance in Chevy's first spot with new slogan

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 12:45:00 EST

Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" tagline has finally been run into the ground, replaced with the Bowtie brand's "Find New Roads" slogan that's part of parent General Motors' plan to unify its everyday brand's marketing efforts worldwide. The new Chevrolet campaign was ushered in on prime time last night during the Grammy Awards on CBS, and the first spot, a 90-second full-line ad, also marks the first appearance of the 2014 Corvette Stingray in a commercial.
Being a full-line ad, the commercial is composed of vignettes centered on different vehicles in the brand's lineup. The all-new 2014 Impala also makes its first commercial appearance in dapper fashion, and time is spent on a skateboarding Sonic and a bouquet of brightly colored Spark hatchbacks driven by fashionable women. The ad starts and ends with Chevy's green halo car, the Volt, along with a young girl with her robotic dog (yes, really).
Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" campaign got off to a rocky start in the fall of 2010, but it did last for a couple of years with some tweaks. This new one, "Find New Roads" seems more intent on drawing new customers into the fold than the outgoing tagline, which seemed to play more toward the brand faithful. It admittedly reminds us more than a little the short-lived "Find Your Own Road" Saab motto (which, we note, was conceived while the Swedish brand was under GM's control), but no matter, we still think it's got more long-term potential than "Runs Deep."

Chevrolet SS previewed by Holden VF Commodore SS V show car

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 10:55:00 EST

It won't be long before we see the official, production-ready Chevrolet SS sedan (hint: it will be revealed this weekend). And to tide us over until all of the official details are released about the US-spec version, we have this: the Holden VF Commodore SS V show car, a performance-oriented brother to the Calais V that debuted earlier in the week.
What we really want to know about the SS V is what lies underhood, but General Motors' Australian arm is keeping that under wraps until the Chevy model breaks cover this weekend. Nevertheless, it's obvious that the SS V will be a serious performer, with all sorts of aggressive cues driving that home on the car's exterior. Take a look at those 20-inch billet aluminum wheels that hide big Brembo brake calipers up front, the sculpted hood and front fascia, the wide air intakes with LED running lights and the quad exhaust pipes out back. It's like the Pontiac G8 GXP never even left us.
Inside, there's a sporty-looking interior with aluminum accents that mix in with black leather and suede surfaces, all tied together in the middle with an eight-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. It looks great, and again, while we don't know anything regarding powertrain details, it makes us oh-so happy to see a manual shifter smack dab in the middle of the center console.
