I'm selling my 68 camaro that I bought 8 years ago,in bad shape,some small rust issues in the lower quarter panels ( my body man took care of that ) so I did some research and came to the conclusion that is a ss 396 , this camaro came originanly with the m22 manual trans. this transmission has the speedo cable inlet on the right side so the cable had to came out behind the distributor ( the hole is still there) and a big block 396 but when I got it motor and tranny were long gone, so I put a 396( unknown milage but runs strong ) out off a 70 camaro or chevelle? and a th 400 auto. painted it matador red (code RR ) that is the original color and black houndstooth interior also original in the car, ( code 749 ) I also installed a center console with after market gauges, the car has all polyurethane bushings motor mounts and trans. mount 750 holly street avenger double pumper,preformer rpm intake, a mild came headers, 2 1/2 flowmaster exhaust,lakewood traction bars, stainlees steel gas tank,rallyes 7"s front 8's out back with drag radials, this car drives great with no vibrations or rattleling of any kind, is not a show car just a driver that turns heads everywhere,
I forgot to mention that the car has front disc brakes, 12 bolt rearend, painless wire harness and the trans. was rebuilted a few months ago! all the weatherstrip was replaced, I think that somebody that owned it before me used to race this car it has weld marks on frame from subframe connectors and they trim and patch the rear floor pans (doesn't look bad do) also the nuts that hold a pin down hood are still there, if you have any ?'s you can call me at home 520-5785435 after 4:00 pm tucson time thank's again!
a couple of small issues the car has ,one of the heater control levers broke loose ,the driver rear quarter window needs one of the guide rollers needs to be replaced ( I have it in the glove box I just haven't had time to put it on I'll try this weekend ) ,I drive this car about 6 or 7 times a year, on nice days, it's allways in the garage and covered
I did so much to this car that I keep forgeting! I installed new front fenders, hood ,valance and header panels, grill trunk lid, front and back bumpers,all badges ,front and back windows, one more thing! the car is listed for sale localy so I may end this auction at any time, thank's
Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.
The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.

The Poncho is dead. Long live the Poncho. Like certain other reoccurring personal maladies, the aftermarket community simply can't let the Trans Am go without another flare up. The guys at Trans Am Depot have worked up a quick commercial for their newest creation: The 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition, and it watches pretty much like you'd expect it to. The footage is comprised of just about every TA male fantasy you can conceive of, from Daisy Dukes and white tank tops to tramp stamps, bikinis and ice cream cones. There simply aren't words for what you'll see below.
Of course, we like our T-Tops as much as the next guy. If you like what you see in the videos, you can pick up your very own TA by heading over to the Trans Am Depot site. The guys even have Chevrolet Camaro-based versions of the Pontiac GTO if the '77 TA treatment is too much for your tastes. Enjoy, but don't say we didn't warn you.
During game five of the World Series, Chevrolet was set to do a spot of marketing for the 2014 Silverado - fans at Busch Stadium in St. Louis would hold up placards that spelled out the words "Silverado Strong," a theme that Chevy has been promoting since the Silverado's launch with the song "Strong," by Will Hoge. The St. Louis promo was ultimately called off, though, over concerns that it'd be insensitive to the visiting Boston Red Sox. (You can see the image of what the stunt would have looked like above, courtesy of one timely Reddit user.)
Now, the Busch Stadium stunt might not have been a big deal, had the St. Louis Cardinals not been playing the Boston Red Sox. Following the tragic events in Boston during the marathon back in April, the phrase "Boston Strong" gained traction among the city's citizens, especially at sporting events. So, you can imagine that Chevy's appropriation of the phrase might not sit well with some fans.
The stunt was ultimately shelved after images of the signs went viral before the game, leading to a bit of a public backlash. Chevy spokesperson Michael Albano said of the promo that it was meant to show the brand's "commitment to baseball and its fans." But after the images went viral, the company "realized there was the possibility that we may offend some of the very fans we were trying to honor," Albano told Automotive News via email.
