This is the one and only custom built Disabled American Veterans Bandit Car as seen on the block at Barrett
Jackson in 2012. Here is a little wording taken from Automotive.com about this car. The 580-hp TAM Bandit
begins life as a Chevrolet Camaro and goes through
numerous engine, exterior, and interior enhancements, including a Magnaflow exhaust system, 22-inch wheels, a
"shaker" hood, an SLP suspension, LED headlights with "Angel Eyes," and an optional whipple supercharger, six speed
manual trans, among other parts. Most striking, though, is the Bandit's resemblance to Burt Reynolds' 1977 Pontiac
Trans Am from the iconic film, Smokey and the Bandit. In total, the build is a $30,000 conversion. The Freedom
Edition, though, received DAV embroidered logos in the interior, and a custom paint job. The Car ultimately
raised $150,000.00 at Barrett Jackson for the cause. This car has been highly modified, and is a true sight to
see. Car has 7000 kms. on it at present - approx. 4400 miles. The car is in as new condition, with the only small
issue being a small crack in the bottom front lower spoiler. A one-of-one custom built car for the Disabled
American Veterans. The exterior Veterans decals were taken off before the current owner purchased the car. The
original interior embroidery is still there for all to see. Please see all pictures. There are shots of the car
when it was at Barrett Jackson, and also shots of the car as it sits today, and when you pick it up. The car has
been sitting in a collectors collection but is time to pass it onto someone else who may be looking for an
investment. Very Special Providence in this car, and the history of the vehicle can be found throughout the
internet. Custom modified by TAM ( Trans American Muscle ). There were no Pontiac Trans Ams built this year, as
Pontiac was no longer in business. This is a true tribute to what the Trans Am may have looked like is it was
factory built in 2012.
Any questions,,please e-mail me.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible headed for Geneva debut

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 17:29:00 EST

While most of the world is still coming down from all the hype surrounding the debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, we're already looking to the future. And according to Autoweek, the next chapter in the C7 story will unfold at the Geneva Motor Show in March. That's right, General Motors is reportedly using the Swiss stage as its venue to debut the Corvette Stingray convertible.
If this strikes you as odd, you aren't alone. After all, with a car that's such an American icon, we'd fully expect Chevrolet to unveil it here on our shores in either Chicago or New York. But according to Autoweek, GM is looking to boost export sales of its halo car, and since the C7 was engineered to compete with the world's best and brightest, showing it off in Geneva is somewhat of a smart move. What's more, those with sharp memories will recall that GM used the Geneva expo to debut the sixth-generation C6 Corvette convertible back in March 2004, so there's also a precedent.
Details surrounding the Corvette Stingray convertible are still slim, though we fully expect the 6.2-liter V8 and choice of either six-speed automatic or seven-speed manual transmissions to carry over unchanged. Prototypes spotted on the road showed the car fitted with a cloth convertible roof, as well.

Hot Wheels Camaro to make big debut at Indy

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 13:45:00 EST

Chevrolet handed over the keys to 33 Hot Wheels Camaro Convertible Indianapolis 500 festival cars this week. Race directors get the luxury of driving the droptops around Indianapolis in an ongoing tradition with roots all the way back to the 1960s. The stunt is supposed to remind area residents that the Indy 500 is right around the corner. The cars are our first look at the special Camaro Hot Wheels Edition in convertible form, and they are slated to head to dealers after a one-time production run. The cars also represent the first time in history full-size Hot Wheels have been offered for sale by an automaker.
The cars will be available in both the previously seen coupe bodystyle and this convertible configuration, and will feature metallic blue paint and special wheels with the iconic redline accent. Buyers will be able to choose between the V6-powered 2LT trim and the V8-powered 2SS guise.
Hot Wheels says the original Custom Camaro toy was one of the original 16 1:64-scale diecasts, and it remains one of the company's most valuable collector items today.

GM execs fired over fraudulent India emissions testing

Mon, 29 Jul 2013 16:00:00 EST

General Motors hadn't had a recall in India since 1995. That changed when it was discovered that certain employees were playing tricks with local emissions testing in order to ensure passing grades for engines. More than ten GM Powertrain employees in India and the US have been let go over the ensuing emissions flap, including Sam Winegarden, VP of global engine engineering, a man who has been with the company since 1969, leading development of some marquee powerplants.
According to Automotive News, an internal investigation revealed that employees "violated testing procedures," sometimes swapping specially prepared low-emissions engines during testing regimes for the Chevrolet Tavera SUV equipped with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines. Employees were also manipulating weights in order to get vehicles placed into different emissions categories. The discovery has led to GM recall the 114,000 Taveras produced over an eight-year period and halting their production and sale.
The Economic Times of India reports that the issue is due to "a faulty component." GM has developed a solution to the issue, and once it is validated in testing and approved by the Indian authorities, the recalled vehicles will be fixed at dealers and production will resume.
