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
What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them.
That's giving headaches to marketing folks across the automotive industry. "It's tough. In 1985 there were about 75,000 names trademarked in the automotive space. Today there are 800,000," Chevrolet's head of marketing, Russ Clark, told Automotive News. Infiniti's president, Johan de Nysschen, echoed Clark's sentiment, saying, "The truth of the matter is, across the world, there is hardly a name or a letter that hasn't already been claimed by one car manufacturer or another. You can go through the alphabet - A, B, C and so forth - and you will quickly see that almost all available letters are taken."
What has that left automakers to do? Get creative. In the case of Infiniti, it made the controversial move to bring all of its cars' names into a new scheme, classifying them as Q#0 for cars and QX#0 for SUVs and crossovers. So the Infiniti G, which was available as the G25 and G37, is now the Q50. The FX37 and FX50 are now the QX70.
This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.
Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...
It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.
It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.
