For Sale is a 1968 Chevelle SS 396 all original numbers matching car. Let me just take the time to say you don't find this every day and it is a rarity. This car I am selling with a story and the tattered remains of the buildsheet I discovered between the trunk pan and the gas tank. I was able to contact the second owner and get the history on the car from 1969 to present. The car was built in Framingham Mass. and originally purchased in New York. It moved to San Antonio in 1976. Being at these locations explains the rust issues the car has. It has rust in the typical locations the rear window shelf, lower front fenders, lower rear quarters, floors and the trunk. It is a shame this car was left outside but the good news is it can all be fixed and they make replacement panels for just about everything these days. I purchased the car with the intentions of doing a frame off restoration and saving this car from the crusher. Financially I can't afford to accomplish this anytime soon. This car restored would go for over $100,000 at a Barret Jackson Event due to the car retaining all of its original equiptment and correctness. It's definately worth saving and one day will be an incredible beauty again! The options are as follows: 396/350hp engine, M-21 4 speed muncie, 12 bolt posi rear axle with 3.55 gears, Paint code V-V (Sequoia Green Metallic), Black Bucket seat interior w/Console, imitation wood steering wheel and vertical "Roll" tach in the instrument cluster. This is a four wheel drum car and came with the sleeper steel wheels and the dog dish covers from the factory. I have decoded the entire car and everything is correct on the car except for the ralley wheels and Carb. I have since located and purchased the numbers matching carb and the correct coded steel wheels. The car does run but is not road worthy as the brakes need work and it has been sitting since 1981. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I know what this car is worth so please no low ballers or tire kickes. Again this car needs a full restoration and is not for the faint of heart. Clear Colorado Title in hand. Buyer is responsible for Shipping and Transportation method. Will Deliver Locally for additional fee. Full payment is Due within 7 days of Auction end. Thanks

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."

Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
When it comes to technology used in racecars, we generally expect it to trickle down to production cars, not the other way around. Well, Pratt & Miller has developed a new rear-facing radar that operates in a similar fashion to what we're used to in modern blind spot detection systems, only it is also capable of tracking cars as they approach and relaying vital information to the driver via a large display screen.

The innovative radar system debuted at last weekend's 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing, and this system makes perfect sense for endurance races like this since the cars sometimes have to drive through the night and in poor weather conditions.
The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify.
When you are not the one in charge of the purse strings, creativity is a must when trying to get the string-holder to bankroll that next shiny object you just can't live without.
When I was a kid, I decided that life wasn't worth living if it weren't in pursuit of owning a GMC Typhoon. My 12-year-old self crafted a fiscal strategy that, when combined with my offer of a 49-percent share of ownership in the car in return for my parents' contribution of 80-percent of the purchase price, would see me behind the wheel of a Typhoon by the time I hit college. They walked away from the negotiating table and, the economic climate of the 8th grade being what it was at the time, another partner wasn't found before the Typhoon was discontinued.
Roy El-Rayes, however, has succeeded where 12-year-old me failed, and he did it by using the sort of professionalism that only a PowerPoint presentation can provide, along with some humor and bold-faced flattery.
