This is a very fast car. I purchased it 6 years ago and have been working on it ever since. It has a 454 that was built by a speed shop in Denver and was dynoed at over 450 hp. I added a new high amp chrome alternator, high rpm mini starter, new Holley street avenger carburetor and a new Holley fuel pump. I have info on motor settings when was setup. It was set up for mile high so had to change some setting. It has an MSD ignition with rev limiter. The radiator is cooled with help from a large fan that can be manually adjusted, it also has a transmission cooler. The transmission is a fresh 350 turbo with a shift kit. The shifter is a B&M mega shifter. The car was completely done from the ground up but the body was not removed. It has new springs, shocks, front disc brakes and new shoes on back. The rear end is a 12 bolt positrac with 3.73 gear ratio. The exhaust is new with cross over pipe and turbo mufflers. When it starts everyone spots to look. The cam makes it sound nasty, which it is. I bought all chrome American Racing wheels so they would stay looking new. I did not go with the larger sizes stayed with 8" in the front and 9" on the rear 15". It has larger tires on the back that gives it the right stance. I also put air shocks on the back. The wheels had to made with an offset to clear wheel well in rear. The only thing I haven't changed are the bumpers. They are pretty god but new or re-chromed would be better. The Interior is all new original two tone aqua bench seat, you don't see very many with a bench seat. The head liner is new and carpet. All of the dash is new and the dash pad is changed to match the color of the seats. I had a radio shop put a pioneer radio and cd in the glove box, it has remote control. The original radio still works. I suppose I have left out some of the changes please call me or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 308-763-1418 if you have questions.
To say that things aren't going well for the newly redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is a pretty sizable understatement. Reports have been swirling about the Malibu getting an emergency design refresh, less than a year after its introduction, as well as having its production at the Fairfax Assembly Plant halted twice already this year for excessive inventory. Now, Motor Trend is reporting that the midsize sedan will be receiving price drops across the board ranging from $300 on a number of models up to $770 on the 1LT trim; offsetting some of MSRP drop, though, the destination charge has increased from $760 to $810.
Without destination, the entry-level Malibu LS now starts at $21,995, which is still about $300 more than a Honda Accord and about $300 less than the segment's top-selling Toyota Camry. This new pricing also drops the price of the Eco, 2LT and 3LT trims by $300. The LTZ trim has dropped by $415, meaning that the Malibu's top dog now starts at just under $30,000, excluding destination.
Here are the new starting prices for all eight of the Malibu trim levels compared to the previous prices for the 2013 model year (including destination):
Put away your pixel paintbrushes, kids. Pack up your Photoshop. This is the real-deal 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible in its first official images. The droptop Chevrolet will roll into the bright lights of the Palexpo exhibition at next week's Geneva Motor Show, a four-wheeled statement of intent that General Motors is serious about taking its Corvette franchise global.
Chevy isn't providing anything in the way of further details with these two shots, but we've learned at least a couple of things about the car shown here. First off, the example seen in these images is fitted with the optional Z51 Performance Package - something that isn't immediately evident because there's no sign of the coupe model's prominent ductwork on its rear haunches. In order to accommodate the power folding hard tonneau cover, the vents that feed the transmission and differential coolers have been relocated to the underside of the car. The dark paint color on this example also does a good job of muting the contrasting black front fender vents and hood opening - Z51-spec design details that have proven to be somewhat controversial.
One other thing to note: These two shots also display the Stingray wearing different alloy wheels than the split five-spoke design shown at the hardtop's Detroit Auto Show unveiling in January. The simpler, thin five-spoke wheels should do a good job of showing off the Z51's upgraded brakes, and they'll be optional on the coupe as well.
Spy photographers have caught what looks like the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze out on snow patrol. The camo could be tricking our eyes, but it look like it has an even tidier, more rounded front end and even lower fenders in relation to the top of the hood. And either a chunk of camo has been wedged between the side mirrors and the doors, or the mirrors are up for revision, too.
The door handles have been moved up the side of the car, leading the way to a rear end that grows a bit in length. If the rumors are true, the coming second-generation Cruze sits on the new D2XX platform that will replace the Delta and Theta platforms at General Motors. A global architecture, the Cruze will be the first to get it, but it will underpin everything from next Chevrolet Volt to the Equinox and could be responsible for 2.5 million units by 2018. The next Cruze is expected to begin production in GM's Lordstown, Ohio plant in the third quarter of 2014.
