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
Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises.

One of the things that dogs the full comeback of General Motors is the instability of its marketing. That part of the automaker got yet another big shakeup today when GM confirmed what I have been tweeting for a few days - strong rumors that the Chevrolet and Cadillac ad accounts are walking to new ad agencies.
Cadillac, GM's luxury brand, is going into review from Fallon Worldwide, Minneapolis and the indications are that Campbell-Ewald, Chevy's old ad shop, will end up with most or all of it. C-E just announced that it was moving from its long-time home in Warren, MI to a new downtown Detroit office next to Ford Field, just blocks from GM.
The other shoe to drop shortly will be the shift of GM's most important brand, Chevy, from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners of San Francisco to McCann-Erickson of Troy, MI. McCann used to be the agency for Buick and GMC, as well as GM's corporate advertising, and has retained some pieces of business over the last few years. Sources have even told us that it was McCann that did a lot of the creative work on Chevy's new ad platform, Find New Roads. (Not to be confused with a former McCann tagline for Saab, "Find Your Own Road.")
Put away your pixel paintbrushes, kids. Pack up your Photoshop. This is the real-deal 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible in its first official images. The droptop Chevrolet will roll into the bright lights of the Palexpo exhibition at next week's Geneva Motor Show, a four-wheeled statement of intent that General Motors is serious about taking its Corvette franchise global.
Chevy isn't providing anything in the way of further details with these two shots, but we've learned at least a couple of things about the car shown here. First off, the example seen in these images is fitted with the optional Z51 Performance Package - something that isn't immediately evident because there's no sign of the coupe model's prominent ductwork on its rear haunches. In order to accommodate the power folding hard tonneau cover, the vents that feed the transmission and differential coolers have been relocated to the underside of the car. The dark paint color on this example also does a good job of muting the contrasting black front fender vents and hood opening - Z51-spec design details that have proven to be somewhat controversial.
One other thing to note: These two shots also display the Stingray wearing different alloy wheels than the split five-spoke design shown at the hardtop's Detroit Auto Show unveiling in January. The simpler, thin five-spoke wheels should do a good job of showing off the Z51's upgraded brakes, and they'll be optional on the coupe as well.
