BARN FIND!!! This is a 1966 Chevy Caprice 396. Too bad its is a 4 door car. However, she's all there. We found this car and a 68 Plymouth Fury III at the same place. We changed the points, condenser, and coil along with the fuel pump. The ole 396 came back to life and runs. She runs good but still needs a carb rebuild and plugs. This car has sit for many years and we are running it off a gas can not the car-tank. The engine did run without any smoking or leaks. We added antifreeze and drove the car around the yard. the brakes are out so it can't be street driven. The transmission did pull in forward gears. It needs a filter change and possibly more. We did not address the transmission or brake issues. We are selling this as a car to be restored or a "great" parts car. The engine is a 396-325hp. It's has a turbo 400 transmission. The exterior paint is in poor condition. The car has rust in all the usual areas. The rockers, quarters, trunk, and floor pans are in poor condition. The interior is in poor condition also. However, the chrome, grille, and hub caps are all in great condition. This is a 2-owner car. We also have the original window sticker. ( Sale Price$4295.45) We also have the original sale slip from "Dickey Chevrolet" in Greenwood SC. We have the Original owners manual for the car. All the car guys know about the documentation-paperwork. Hit me with any questions or to see the car. Bid and it can be yours. Bring a trailer. Thanks.

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 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray spotted crashed in the wild

Tue, 12 Feb 2013 21:47:00 EST

This restyled blue 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is wearing manufacturer plates, and it appears to be the same one seen around the internet in various pictures lately. This crash is likely not part of the Chevrolet testing regimen, however. Digital Corvettes forum member gpetry posted the shot with a note: "got this picture e-mailed from a friend in Arizona last week..." No circumstances are given, other than the incident occurred in the thick of a set of curvy roads, and the coupe ping-ponged off a guardrail and into the rock wall. Hopefully everyone involved in the incident walked away.
It may not be a pretty thing to see, a crashed sports car that's not even available for sale yet, but rest easy. Many pre-production cars are used for development and then unceremoniously crushed and scrapped, anyway. If that's the case here, that makes this wrecked 'Vette less of a tragedy and more of a case of exceptional efficiency.

Mother's Day Suggestion No. 2,506

Thu, 02 May 2013 19:59:00 EST

With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.
