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!

It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro - the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.

The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?
At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.
General Motors has officially captured the horsepower crown for mainstream pickup trucks with its 6.2-liter V8. The big mill, available in both the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, comes to market with 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, handily outdoing its two cross-town competitors, Ram (5.7-liter V8, 395 ponies and 407 lb-ft) and Ford (6.2-liter V8, 411 hp and 434 lb-ft).

The new GM 6.2 will take a bit of an investment, though. Those that want the extra thrust will need to go with either the LTZ or High Country trims from the Chevy, or the SLT and Denali trims from GMC, which are the two highest trim levels for the respective vehicles. Trim levels aside, if you're in the business of towing, GM has you covered. Optioned with the 6.2-liter V8 and the Max Trailering Package, owners will be able to pull 12,000 pounds, a hugely impressive figure.
We still aren't certain as to what sort of economy the new engine will get, but it'll probably be a bad bet for the fuel conscious. As for availability, expect to see the 6.2-liter trucks in showrooms later in the fall.
The last time General Motors had a diesel passenger car in the US, it was the 1.8-liter 1986 Chevette. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show today, GM is unveiling the much-anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. The compact bows with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that boasts 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with full twist coming on at just 2,000 rpm. What's more, the common-rail, direct-injection diesel features an overboost function that allows the engine to deliver up to 280 lb-ft of torque for 10 seconds at a time. Even with 10 more horsepower and 110 more pound-feet of torque than the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder in the Cruze, the 2.0-liter diesel engine can return up to 42 mpg (highway) bolted to its six-speed automatic transmission.
If you're counting, that figure meets the less powerful Cruze Eco with a six-speed manual transmission. More importantly, the auto transmission Cruze Diesel matches its main competition, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, in highway fuel economy. The Cruze 2.0 TD (as it will be badged) can also handle up to 20 percent biodiesel (B20), whereas the Jetta is rated only for B5. General Motors has not released city fuel economy for its newest diesel, but we do know how much it will cost you to jump behind the driver's seat.
GM will kindly ask for $25,695, plus an $810 destination fee. That marks a $2,115 premium over a loaded Cruze LTZ Auto and $2,640 more than the Jetta TDI, though the MSRP will net you a leather interior, 17-inch alloy wheels and an Aero Performance Package, as well as a two-year maintenance plan and five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared to the gas-powered Cruze, you also lose a couple cubic feet of rear cargo space thanks to a 17-liter diesel emission fluid tank. That urea fluid, which helps put the clean in clean diesel, will need to be refilled at least every 10,000 miles.
