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 email@example.com or call 308-763-1418 if you have questions.
We've just received an early peek at the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible here at the Geneva Motor Show. General Motors was kind enough to let us attend the final dress-rehearsal for its press conference scheduled for tomorrow's opening media day, and we've come away with a good look at the droptop C7 in person.
In the metal, the new Corvette Convertible seems somehow less avant-garde than the Coupe, even in Z51 Performance Package guise. That's not necessarily a bad thing - more of an observation. That initial impression may be because the C7's new greenhouse is one of its most prominent departures from Corvettes past. While we didn't get to see the top erected, there's no rear side window in the stock images that Chevy has already released, suggesting the C7 convertible's profile will look a lot like its C6 predecessor. And with the new power tonneau cover in place, there are also no rear ducts that come as part of the Z51 package (they've been moved under the car).
As with its predecessor, the tonneau is a handsome double-bubble piece, and the body-color "waterfall" element into the cabin between the seats has made it to the new model as well. Thus, the overall look with the top down should be a bit more familiar to prior-gen C6 owners - if you're one of those put off by the C7's new shape, you'll probably appreciate the convertible bodystyle more than the coupe.
We've already seen leaked specs and potential spy shots, but the refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show in a few weeks.
Besides a tweaked exterior and the possibility of a high-output LS7 under the hood, we really don't know much else about the 2014 Camaro, but here's hoping for an improved interior, too.
In addition to the refreshed Camaro, Chevrolet will also be showing off the recently introduced Chevrolet SS, making its debut on the auto show circuit, and we'll also get our first look at the C7 Corvette coupe and convertible side-by-side.
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
