I am sure there is nothing out there this like this car. It took 5 years to build and was done right in every way.
I bought the car originally in Wisconsin and sent it directly to Muscle Up Performance in Janesville, Wisconsin.
Check their website and you will some of the info on the car. Rich Bickle the owner and former NASCAR driver re-did
the body and built the chassis.
The full chassis frame was built the similar to the way NASCAR teams build theirs but without the full roll cage.
Full tubular design with mounting points to the original Camaro mounts. The mounts are solid and there is no flex
in the chassis or movement where it isnít wanted. This keeps the suspension geometry exact continuously. The
shocks and coils are fully adjustable with ride height and car load. QA-1 products were used.
The front end has a Sweet power steering rack, tubular A arms, Heim joints at all pivot points, tie rod end and
ball joint locations. Brakes are Wildwoods best 4 piston calipers and large rotors.
Muscle up Performance took the car to bare metal and then gave it a perfect pain job in GM Corvette red. The hood
is fiberglass with a stinger scoop accented in silver. Really makes the car come alive.
The engine is a new crate LS6 with a 6 speed T56, The McLeaod hydraulic throw bearing was purchased to ensure
trouble free operation and simplicity for bleeding and operation. A 3 Ĺ inch drive shaft was sourced and connected
to Winters Ford 9" rear end with a 3.70 gear and posi. The 4 link suspension controls the movement of the rear end
again with QA1 coils and adjustable shocks, 450 lb/in used on the rear. Brakes again are Wildwood.
The black leather interior seats were taken from a newer GM vehicle with six way adjustment. The rears were
sectioned to fit and the complete installation looks factory. The door panels and console were done in a matching
black leatherette which was also wrapped around the original dash. New gauges were added and the overall effect
with the black low pile carpet giving it sporty but elegant look.
An aluminum rad with two electric fans was added to cool the engine.
All engine management and sensors were provide by Turnkey engines with a Painless wiring installation. They
certainly do a great job with their packages.
The car was complete last year and I drove it 60 miles to a local car shown. Having driven all types of performance
cars in the past 40 years this was one of the best handling and driving cars I have driven with a ride to rival
only the newest performance car designs. This is not the type of car I drove some 45 years ago when I got my
license. The first thing that I noticed after the build was there was way more chassis then engine. I then added a
Procharger Supercharger and ATI pinned balancer. A water to air intercooler, pump and cooler were added to help
cool the charge. The final inclusions were a water/methanol injection system, MSD coil packs and wires were added
to ensure a reliable spark.
The wheels are Foose 18 inch rim 8Ē in the front and 9.5Ē in the rear. The tires are 235/45x18 on the front and
rears are 275/35x 18.
The car has 0 miles with this set-up. I donít have the time to enjoy all the vehicles I built and have now. The
car would cost more than $100K to reproduce as that is what I spent to date

Was the C7 Corvette cut from Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show?

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 11:01:00 EST

Someone was bound to receive a free 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the Super Bowl XLVII festivities; it just wasn't who we thought it was going to be. Despite a report back in December that superstar Beyoncé Knowles would be getting an all-new Corvette during her halftime performance, that turned out not to be the case. Joe Flacco, starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, did in fact win a Corvette for his MVP performance.
So what transpired that prevented Beyoncé from rolling on stage in the new Chevrolet? Anyone who knows isn't telling, but according to Yahoo! Autos, General Motors said that for one reason or another a deal "did not work out," and it appears to have been an eleventh-hour change. Regardless of who's to blame or what prevented this from happening, we're sure Chevy has had no problems getting attention for the C7 Corvette since it was introduced last month.

Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:31:00 EST

Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.

Watch this time-lapse build of the Chevy SS for NASCAR

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 12:43:00 EST

There's only about a week left until we get our first look at the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan, but Chevrolet NASCAR teams have been looking at the race version of the car all winter. Autoweek has posted a really neat time-lapse video showing just a portion of what it takes to build one of NASCAR's new Gen6 stock cars.
Though the video is quite brief, it does show almost the entire build process starting with just the car's nose, and it gives us a good look at how integral the template is to the final product. As a bonus, Hendrick Motorsports also provided some videos showing two of its teams performing pit stop tests over the winter. The second video shows some of the more detailed aspects of the racecar's rear end, including the stock-looking trunk cutout and a newly mandated rear bumper extension that will be used on super speedways like Daytona and Talladega.
To see what Team Chevy has been up to all off-season, check out all three videos posted after the jump.
