 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.

Chevy shows much-improved 2014 Corvette interior in new video

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 11:31:00 EST

If you want a closer look at what went into designing and building the interior for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, we've got just the thing. General Motors has released a new video detailing the cabin's evolution from conception to execution, complete with commentary from Ryan Vaughn, performance car interior design manager with Chevrolet. The quick clip details how manufacturing, engineering and design within General Motors worked together from the first sketches to ensure no compromises had to be made later down the line. How novel.
With plenty of hides traced with contrast stitching and available real carbon fiber trim, the cabin looks to be a few hundred miles ahead of the C6. Given how readily critics derided the previous generation for its cabin, the C7 should make writers work a little harder to find something to complain about. Check out the video below for yourself.

GM recalls 8,500 Chevrolet Malibu models for rear suspension glitch

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 14:15:00 EST

According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.

Chevy Corvette gets Valet Mode with Performance Data Recorder [w/video]

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 09:00:00 EST

For the 2015-model-year, Chevrolet introduces Valet Mode for the Corvette, an enhancement to the Performance Data Recorder (PDR) already available and to your peace of mind. The PDR already captures 720p HD video with a windshield-mounted camera, records interior audio with a cabin microphone and gathers telemetry data using GPS, saving the data to an SD card in the glovebox. You can then watch your track-day antics with various information overlays on the center console screen.
Valet Mode will let you hit 'Replay' when your car gets pulled up front smelling vaguely of fricasseed clutch. Turned on by entering a four-digit code, it also locks the interior storage spaces and turns off the infotainment system. It can't be turned off until the code is re-entered. There's a press release below with more information as well as a video that explains how it works, with the obligatory dig at the 'Vette's biggest foe.
