Of the 2,311 Yellow Orange Z28s that were produced, this maybe the finest one available to purchase. It is most
definitely unique as I’ve added a CROSS RAM dual four intake and on it sits two specially modified NASCAR 390 cfm
Holley carbs. A true car enthusiasts dream vehicle!

For the past decade, we have been restoring and building 2nd Gen Trans Ams and some we’ve built to a level far
beyond what the factory was allowed to produce. Five of our builds have reached the status that we’ve named and
numbered “Super Bandits” and they are awesome vehicles to own and drive. During the years of building hp TAs,
I’ve thought about restoring/building a 2nd gen Z28 to the Super Car status and what I’m offering for sale is
our prototype “Super Z”.

Below are a few words of what we have restored on the car over the many years of my son and I owning it and you can
view the pictures of the finished results.

Exterior / Body /Frame

The hood, fenders, bumper covers, mirrors and trunk spoiler were removed and painted separately. The front frame
received a new set of upgraded poly body bushings and it was properly aligned to the body. Upper A arm bushings
were replaced along with the sway bar bushings. The door hinge pins/bushings were replaced and the doors were
properly aligned. The original Yellow Orange paint was stripped and minor dings were repaired. All parts were
primed and then block sanded multiple times in preparation for top coat paint to be applied. Similar to how Mark
Worman at Graveyard Carz paints his high end restored vehicles, this one was sprayed in base clear twice with a few
years allowed before the 2nd spraying was done. This makes for a very nice smooth paint that will remain great
looking for many years. The recently sprayed 2nd coating of base Yellow Orange and clear was Trizact wet sanded and
buffed to a shine.


After spraying was completed, new window felts were installed along with door and body weather stripping.
Windshield moldings were stripped, painted and installed. New decals were then applied and the custom Phoenix
Graphix hood scoop decal looks as though this ’78 could have come from the factory with the upgraded ’80 hood
scoop.

Engine / Under Hood

The engine in this Stage 1 Super Z is a one of a kind with twin Holley modified NASCAR 390 cfm carbs sitting on top
of the Offenhauser cross ram intake manifold. I’ve tuned the carbs to produce great throttle response and you
will find the engine to pull strong when you open all 8 barrels up! The camshaft chosen for our Stage 1 engine
package offers you greatly improved hp while still being fine to use on an AC equipped vehicle. Long tube headers
and a true dual exhaust keeps things following out easily.

To keep things nice and cool always, I’ve installed a Hayden severe duty fan clutch and a 4 core hd aluminum
radiator. The factory AC system had an upgraded compressor installed and the system was filled with the new 134
refrigerant. All under hood areas were cleaned and painted the correct factory trim black color and even the hood
hinges were sprayed in a color that replicated the factory look to them.



Trans / Differential

The BW ST10 4 speed manual trans has been rebuilt and upgraded/modified with the gears that were used in the ’80
and up Z28s. First gear now is the super low 3.42 ratio which makes it great for getting off of the line. The
differential is a single trac and has been improved by installing a set of 2.73 gears to lower the engine rpm at
hwy cruising speed. Now with the super low 1st gear in the trans and hwy gears in the rear, it is great off of the
line while being a pleasure to drive for extended periods on the hwy!


Brakes

The brake system is all working properly and the font pads have been upgraded to ceramic to reduce dust build up on
the wheels.



Wheels / Tires

The 15 x 7 factory aluminum wheels were cleaned, painted the correct gold and then polished. The tires still have
good tread left on them to enjoy some more miles of driving.



Interior

The floor has had new underlay insulation and carpet installed along with new sill plates. Rear shelf package tray
seat covers and door panels have all been replaced along with the headliner and sun visors – but that was 6 years
ago so not brand new at the moment. All dash gauges work properly. A new high power radio and speakers were
installed in the rear shelf and in the center front area.

Chevy rolls out Silverado HD High Country

Wed, 09 Apr 2014

It's been a good week for heavy-duty truck buyers. First, Ram revealed the Black Package for its HD trucks, then it rolled out its new Power Wagon, and now Chevy's getting in on the action with its Silverado High Country HD. Okay, so it may not pack quite the attitude of Ram's latest 2500-series offerings, but the High Country HD will come as a welcome addition to the Chevy Trucks range to those looking to pull their horse, boat or other trailer without skimping on creature comforts.
Rolled out a little under a year ago, the High Country trim is Chevy's answer to the likes of the GMC Denali, Ford King Ranch and Ram Longhorn. It has until now only been offered on the light duty, 1500-series Silverado, but now extends to the 2500 and 3500-series HD models, as well.
So what sets a High Country pickup apart from lesser Chevy trucks? You'll be able to pick it out based on its chrome horizontal grille, body-color bumpers, 6-inch tubular side steps, 20-inch chrome wheels (18-inch on the 3500 and 17-inch on the dualie) and, of course, plenty of special badging. But it's inside where the High Country makes its mark, with a cabin decked out in saddle brown perforated leather, seats that are both heated and cooled, eight-inch touchscreen with full MyLink suite, Bose audio and park assist functions front and rear to keep those color-keyed bumpers looking fresh. (Though Chevy hasn't yet showed us the interior of the HD model, it'll presumably look mostly the same as the cab in the 1500 High Country in the gallery below.)

2014 Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra full configurators truck in

Sat, 15 Jun 2013

You can now put prices to your wildest option-sheet dreams of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. A microsite for the full-size pickup truck twins has been up since January, and now the full-blown configurator is live and ready to take your virtual orders. The only two chassis configurations available at the moment are the Crew Cab with either a short or standard bed - Regular and Double Cab versions will come later. In Silverado flavors that will run you $32,710 for the short box, $33,010 for the standard box, while the Sierra adds a $1,500 premium to both of those prices, and destination and handling for both models adds another $995.
Since these are American pickups the list of modifications is lengthy, but we added $11,450 in just two steps by starting with the Silverado Crew Cab and standard bed, then checking four-wheel drive and the LTZ Z71 package. Our final truck, resplendent in Brownstone Metallic paint, heated and cooled Cocoa/Dune perforated leather seating and tasty details like chrome recovery hooks, and engine block heater and LED cargo box lighting, rang up $57,285 at the candy store.
They'll be on dealer lots sometime this summer, so now's a good time to start practicing your box-checking.

Chevy SS prototype spotted wearing Pontiac G8 clothes

Tue, 28 Aug 2012


Do not adjust your computer screen, you are not seeing the rebirth of the Pontiac brand. General Motors has chosen to use a G8 to disguise a test mule for the latest prototype of the forthcoming Chevrolet SS. The G8 was closely related to the Holden Commodore and Vauxhall VXR, the platform upon which the new Chevrolet performance model will be based. It should come as little surprise, then, that GM has opted to use the cladding from the former G8.
Thought the front clip of this mule is pure Pontiac, note the vents immediately behind the front wheel. That is a distinctive design hallmark of the Vauxhall VXR. Also note that this vehicle is right-hand drive, as the Holden and its Chevy counterpart will be very closely related. That likely includes potential drivetrains. The spy photos of this mule also reveal very wide rear tires, and rear wheels that do not match the fronts.
