Interior:

Headrest were removed and driver’s seat was mounted back for a tall man (can be put in factory mounts). The rear
seat is orignal. Front and rear seats were wrapped in charcoal leather (not vinyl), and sewn/seamed to match the
1969 style. The front seats have integrated 3 point seatbelts. The rear has 3 new GM lap belts. The leather is in
good shape, and shows normal wear fro 3 years of use. The car smells good inside.
Classic Air Industries R-134A ac unit with heater core was added. The unit was inspected and blows cold and fast.
New high loop black carpet installed with front and rear door panels,headliner, and majority of the rubber was
replaced, (although some is orignal)
Painless wiring fuse block (modern) and flashers were installed with all new wiring from the front to the rear of
the car.
Retro Sound AM/FM/AUX stereo with Kicker speakers and crossovers give plenty of sound from the rear deck. There are
no front speakers. It is not my place to cut holes in kick panels or doors. The sound system is plenty good. The
antenna is hidden under the dash board and no external antenna is present.
All dashboard indicators work,turn signals,high beams, and HVAC also work flawlessly.
Center console is original, but is functional and painted black (to eliminate the wood drain). Glove box has a new
insert, and ashtray/lighter are also new. Rear ashtray was glued shut ( common fix for metal or metal rattles). It
also needs a new dome light lens (also original).


Body:
New front clip sheet metal from AMD. Flat painted Spoiler from AMD. All other metal appears original from the doors
back. The car was blasted, body worked, block sanded, and coated in red sealer and topped with GM tuxedo Black 3
times and a single coat of PPG clear. The car was wet sanded and buffed.
Thé side glass is original. The front rear windshield are new installs (glued not gasket).
There are a few flaws in the paint, they are all very minor in my option:
Passenger front fender: A rock from the freeway landed in the middle top of the fender. The metal is not dinged,
but it did take off to the primer. It was filled with touch up paint, and looks acceptable. It was lightly color
sanded and buffed, and cloud use another pass.
Thé driver’s door has a revers ding above the handle. The car was slim-jammed after keys were locked in by a bad
tow man. The ding can be removed, but the entire interior panel shells are covered in sound deadening materials and
is very labor intensive to remove.
There are some paint chips from normal use on the car, but they are very inconspicuous.
The floor pan had a layer of undercoating applied, and new drain plugs installed. Everything under the car appears
correct and true, as does the subframe, cables, cross members, mounts, and cables.
As mentioned before, the interior had sound deadening materials placed from the front to the rear, floor to the
roof. It is a generic “Dynamat“, but just as thick.
The trunk pan is original, and was re-painted upon restoration with gray splatter style fleck.
All emblem holes were welded and filled. The front nose Camaro emblem was powder coated black. All chrome trim was
painted black (bumpers, window molding, hard ware). All stainless trim was brushed stainless (grill and window
channels). The rain gutters were painted black. All new corner light with black bezels. Original rear tail lights.
Door handles were painted black, as well as the side view mirrors.
The body gaps are very clean, the doors,trunk, and hood close with one swing.

Vert-A-Pac train cars kept your Chevy Vega's price in check

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:46:00 EST

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.

First privately owned Corvette Stingray blitzes 1/4 mile in 12.23 at 114.88 mph

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 12:32:00 EST

Chevrolet's latest road rocket, the Corvette Stingray, is a very quick car. If one needs further proof of that, we recommend they take a look at this video from Hennessey of what is claimed to be the first privately owned C7 Corvette to make a pass down the quarter mile. Not just any quarter mile, mind, this black C7 blitzed its way down the tuner's primary testing dragstrip. The Chevrolet ran the quarter in just 12.23 seconds at 114.88 miles per hour. That is a very quick time for a stock car.
Equipped with the Z51 package and a six-speed automatic transmission, not only does the C7 run a solid time, but it does so with little to no drama. That won't last though, as Hennessey will likely return it to its owner with far more power - we just hope they show a drag run of the completed product. Take a look below to watch the C7's 12.23-second run on video.

GM recalls 8,500 Chevrolet Malibu models for rear suspension glitch

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 14:15:00 EST

According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.
