Super straight southern pickup truck. If you are looking for a turn key ride, that's not full of body filler, and is a beautiful driver, this is the truck. It is a 1971 model, and it is not perfect, but it is a really nice solid truck. Floor pans look to be original and are solid with no rust. Had a Body Shop manager look this truck over from top to bottom. He found no body filler, but did say that the rockers had been replaced, and the doors looked like they have been skinned. He found no work done to the bed. The dash pad has a few cracks, but is presentable. The seat has been recovered and looks very well done. The heater controls and the heater core and the heater blower motor have been removed. And there are aftermarket gauges and a switch panel installed to control the necessary functions of the truck. Interior door panels are aftermarket, but again was very well done. Very nice carpet. Now the drive train. The engine came out of a 56 Chevrolet my friend is restoring. The block has been milled sometime in its life and the engine code is very hard to read, but with a magnifying glass, I found what looks to be RQ, which match's the casting number years for a 1964 8 cylinder 327. Motors breakdown for the engine is RQ /1964/8-327-w-M/T-A/C-HPE. But I in no way guarantee that is what the engine is. But I have built, raced and enjoyed many small block Chevrolet engines. It has a hydraulic mid-range camshaft that has that really cool idle and sounds like your buddy's L79. And I'm sure this engine has been balanced. Has that radical sound and does not shake or vibrate. The engine has an Edelbrock Manifold and Carb. The mileage on the truck or engine is unknown, but it does smoke, shuts off tight, and runs like a scalded dog. Clutch is tight and does not slip.The transmission is a M20 Muncie 4 speed with a Hurst Shifter and  is quite as a church mouse. Rear differential has 4:11 gears. The installation of the driveline is not all monkeyed up, and is very well done, with new motor and transmission mounts. The exhaust is Rams horn manifolds and goes through flowmaster mufflers and sounds really good. If you decide to put the interior back to the original look, most of the parts needed are brand new and come to with the truck. The heater controls, the ignition switch, the dome light, dash and dash bezel, wiper arms and blades, antenna, etc. , see pictures. If you wanted to put the heater box, heater core, and blower motor back in the truck, it can be done easily. The firewall just has plates blocking the holes. Remove the plates and reinstall the parts. This truck drives like a new 1971, handles nice, doesn't wonder, rides like it did in 1971. Now down to the important part. Ask questions, come and see the truck. I'm selling this truck for a friend. If you are the winning bidder, be prepared to pay for it with in 10 days of auction end. And the truck is being sold AS-IS, I have described it as honestly as I can. You can message me through eBay and I will get back to you as quickly as I can. Thanks for looking.

Next Corvette ZR1 to get 700 horsepower?

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 18:30:00 EST

Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.

Kurt Busch to shake and bake (again) in Ricky Bobby car at Talladega

Sat, 19 Oct 2013 11:00:00 EST

Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).
It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.

GM says hybrid Corvette no laughing matter [w/poll]

Fri, 30 Aug 2013 13:30:00 EST

When Mark Reuss was in LA recently, he sat down to have a few words with the scribes at the Los Angeles Times. When the issue of a hybrid Corvette came up, Reuss answered with "Don't laugh." The General Motors president is a complete fan of the possibility, calling it "attractive" and "really fun," believing it would improve GM expertise and that "people would love it."
Naturally, the president being supportive of an idea doesn't give indication that a hybrid Corvette is on the way. However, with supercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari giving hybrid tech a solid, if remote, place in the performance car world, the inexorable trickle-down of technology means we shouldn't be surprised if and when it does happen.
And now that we have that non-negative half-answer to a speculative question, it would be irresponsible for us not to commence rumormilling for the C8 Corvette. Taking Reuss at his word, the C8 will obviously be a hybrid with all-wheel-drive - the left side wheels driven with electric motors, the right side with the mid-mounted, four-cylinder diesel engine. With coefficient of drag of just .16, figure on a 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time of under 2 seconds and an all-electric range of something like 30 miles at top speed. Don't forget, folks, you read it here first.
