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

Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).

It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.

Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?
General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.
The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.
