1968 Chevelle Malibu; 90% restored; all this car needs is some finishing to be a great street rod - that was my goal, but ran out of time. Someone will have a blast in this car - I wish it was me.
Anyway, I purchased the body/frame - there was some rust around the windshield and trunk lip I had a body shop repair. Frame is in fine shape; no rust on the car now. I had it painted satin black to give it a mild rat rod look. Mechanically, I purchased a 327 and rebuilt the bottom end; it has some very mild cam other than stock in it, I believe; heads from a Camaro are sitting on top; Edelbrock Victor, Jr. intake, Edelbrock 1406 carb; new electric cooling fan; new fuel line; headers; almost new Flowmaster dual exhaust; Turbo 350 transmission. New Cragar SS wheels with new BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. The car is an A/C car, and it could certainly be again. I was going for the left arm tan vibe.
The electrical system was completely rebuilt front to back by a Chevelle guy in town.
Regarding the interior, the dash is in great shape; the front seats are new - mechanical reclining seats; back seat is in ok shape, but needs to be recovered. New carpet, reproduction door panels, door handles, arm rests. There is good sound insulation under the carpet and in the trunk, too. The shifter is a custom billet aluminum ratchet shifter some made for me - it looks boss and really sets the car off. I initially had a custom fiberglass console in there with standard gauges (temp, oil pressure, alt), but decided it was too much. The subs and amp in the trunk were coupled with a stereo that was mounted in the console; I never got around to moving the stereo into the dash. I have no use for them, so they stay with the car.
As I stated, someone will have a great street rod with a minimum of work - wish it was me. It has a nice, throaty idle. I only drove it a couple of times after the engine was rebuilt - it may have 3 or 4 miles on the rebuilt engine. The brakes are spongy; it probably needs a master cylinder. You would not want to fly in and drive this car to your home, in my opinion. It also needs shocks. For someone that had a little bit of mechanical knowledge or someone that wanted to learn a little, you can get in this car cheap and have a hell of a nice antique street rod.

Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.

The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
After a door-fire investigation that dates back to February, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially announced a recall today that affects around 250,000 General Motors SUVs for a faulty driver's door module. The recall applies to the Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X from the 2006 and 2007 model years, as well as the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL for vehicles sold and/or registered in the Snow Belt.

Road salt use in these midwestern and northern states can lead to corrosion of the driver's door module on these GMT360 and GMT370 vehicles, which allows water to come in contact with the circuit board. If shorted out, the vehicle's power door locks and power windows will not work, and could possibly lead to overheating and, in some circumstances, a fire. No official word on how many total vehicles caught on fire, but back in June, 28 fires had been reported to the government agency. A fix for the problem is still being worked out, but all affected vehicle owners will be notified by GM.

They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.
We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.
