This 78 K5 Custom Deluxe is fantastic and appears to have had just one repaint. It was restored to its
original color combination per the original SPID sheet that is included with the vehicle. It was ordered new as a
Custom Deluxe but well equipped. Factory AC, Folding Rear Seat, Gauge Package, Sliding Side Window, High Back
Bucket Seats, Locking Differential, Automatic Transmission, Chrome Front & Rear Bumpers and the Exterior Decor PKG.
In our recent restoration (March 2019) we went through the motor and removed the carburetor to fuel injected the
original 350 V8, replaced all the hoses, wiring, and belts to make sure she was running right. The motor has just
over 64,000 original miles with an less 700 miles since the restoration. All gauges have been refreshed and
updated, along with an upgraded Bluetooth radio, new dash, door panels, and new front and rear seats. Iíve
installed black saddle blanket seat covers to protect the interior from daily wear. All lights have been upgraded
to LEDs, a custom dual exhaust gives it just enough rumble to sound right, and the custom carbon fiber bow tie for
the Chevy emblem on the front grille sets this beast apart. All original parts (gauges, radio, etc.) have been
preserved and will be included if you want to take it back to its original glory.
The factory AC setup blows cold and everything seems to operate great on this K5. The 4" Suspension lift was just
recently installed and the Blazer rolls on 20" MotoMetal wheels that are wrapped in brand new 35x12.5 BF Goodrich
All Terrain T/As.The truck has a awesome stance and presence! New dual steering rods were added for better
handling, and now 70 mph drives the same as 40....smooth and easy.

GM execs fired over fraudulent India emissions testing

Mon, 29 Jul 2013 16:00:00 EST

General Motors hadn't had a recall in India since 1995. That changed when it was discovered that certain employees were playing tricks with local emissions testing in order to ensure passing grades for engines. More than ten GM Powertrain employees in India and the US have been let go over the ensuing emissions flap, including Sam Winegarden, VP of global engine engineering, a man who has been with the company since 1969, leading development of some marquee powerplants.
According to Automotive News, an internal investigation revealed that employees "violated testing procedures," sometimes swapping specially prepared low-emissions engines during testing regimes for the Chevrolet Tavera SUV equipped with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines. Employees were also manipulating weights in order to get vehicles placed into different emissions categories. The discovery has led to GM recall the 114,000 Taveras produced over an eight-year period and halting their production and sale.
The Economic Times of India reports that the issue is due to "a faulty component." GM has developed a solution to the issue, and once it is validated in testing and approved by the Indian authorities, the recalled vehicles will be fixed at dealers and production will resume.

New Chevrolet Silverado to be revealed on Facebook on Thursday

Tue, 11 Dec 2012 08:29:00 EST

There's not much to see here, but if you're one of those waiting for the reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, above is the teaser image that Chevrolet posted on its Facebook page. We've seen the truck in form-fitting camo before, and even less can be made out here beyond those seriously punchy Silverado-esque fenders and the knowledge that the projector-beam headlamps teased previously do indeed work. We'll have to wait until Thursday for a full perusal of the "bold exterior design" and "careful attention given to every detail" we've been promised.
Gathering intel and rumors, magnesium and aluminum contribute to the Silverado's weight loss plan, the purported "High Country" top-tier trim will contribute to luxury pickup truck competition and profit margins and the next-generation small-block V8 will contribute to improved fuel economy. On the engine note, there have been rumors of available V6 engines, and when Facebook user John Jones asked "Where's your answer to that EcoBoost Chevy?", the Bowtie replied "stay tuned on the 13th. We think you'll be pleased...".
Along with the "Raise the Bar" tag, Chevrolet says of the Silverado, "You asked, we delivered." You can watch the reveal live on Chevrolet's Facebook page at 9:30 am EST, this Thursday, December 13. The GMC Sierra 1500 will also be there, and we'll see both in person at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Veyron and C7 Corvette join cast of Transformers 4

Wed, 29 May 2013 13:31:00 EST

Like the Fast & Furious franchise, the Michael Bay-directed series of Transformers movies has become known as much for its bad acting as its impressive lineup of cars. As filming just started for Transformers 4, Bay's website has confirmed two new cars for the next installment as well as a makeover for everyone's favorite tractor trailer hero, Optimus Prime.
Joining the cast of T4 are a "race-inspired" Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. While Bay's website did not supply names for either car, Bugatti is reporting on its Facebook page that the Veyron will join the Autobots. Speaking of the good guys, top Autobot Optimus Prime is getting an all-new body based on a Western Star with a gaudy appearance that was seemingly inspired by Trick My Truck - right down to the six smoke stacks and side pipes!
