 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.

Refreshed 2014 Camaro confirmed for New York debut

Thu, 07 Mar 2013 16:15:00 EST

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.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible is a Swiss hit

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 14:15:00 EST

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.

GM already raising prices on 2014 Silverado and Sierra pickups

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 14:00:00 EST

General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
