Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : .This ad features a really nice car I am selling from a friendís collection. He recently had a his first child and
has decided to thin his car herd so he can focus on his growing family herd! So while he is ready to cut this car
loose it is not a forced sale, more of a common sense sale. This car does not have the correct engine/transmission
but instead has a 454 V-8 and 400 TurboHydramatic transmission out of a 1974 Chevelle which is a very suitable
upgrade and a 12 bolt posi-traction differential. This is a real SS, but originally was a 350 V8. It runs strong
and looks great. As you read through the write up you will see everything has either been rebuilt or replaced
mechanically on the car. This is a great driver and ready to go as it sits. Now I should qualify that usually
"driver" quality on eBay usually means piece of crap. Let's be clear this is a really nice car, but by no means a
trailer queen either, hence a great car to drive, and will show well at most local car shows and cruise-ins. The
car collects lots of attention whether it's cruising down the street or parked.
Finish -- Grade A: Bright red paint is a fresh two stage paint. Re-paint was very through and there are no signs
of the original green metallic paint. Very nice shine/luster and it looks as good in person as it does in the

bearings cleaned & greased. Rear brakes are drum style with new pads and springs. Brakes perform to factory
specifications. Fresh installation.
Engine Grade A: Original 350 was missing when the car was purchased. Currently the engine compartment holds a 1974
Chevrolet 454 with 4BBL. The intake and heads are 1966 Chevrolet Passenger parts a top a 1974 454 Chevelle 454
block. It is a well thought out combination that provides a gas pump friendly compression. Engine is clean and
show ready detailed. Installation is clean and professional and stock in appearance. Engine is equipped with brand
factory chrome valve covers, is painted the correct era paint. Engine was professionally rebuilt when owned by a
previous owner but came with no receipts. The motor is clean inside (valve covers were removed for inspection) and
is free of any noises or knocks, and there is no smoke upon start-up cold or warm, and is free of any oil or
coolant leaks, supporting the claim of a recent/fresh rebuild. Engine has a slight lopey idle but pulls 25 inches
of vacuum, the carburetor has been modified and freshly rebuilt with parts from Cliff's HP and dialed in to the
engine modification combination and pulls smooth right off idle without hesitation through acceleration. Engine is
equipped with functioning factory style electric choke that works as designed by the factory. Engine pulls hard
under acceleration, no black smoke, and carburetor responds better then fuel injection. Engine features new
starter, alternator, radiator, hoses, plus fresh tune-up with cap, rotor, wires, and plugs. Brackets are all
factory and period correct and installation is professional. Car also features a brand new four row radiator (not a
re-core), with 7 bladed fan with thermostatic factory style clutch.
This car looks great driving down the road, and frankly, even up close, it is very presentable for most local car
shows or cruises. It is a very nice car to drive with smooth acceleration, and clean comfortable cabin. The
performance idle through the chambered mufflers makes it a hit at the cruise in or at the stop light. The car has a
strong running 454 which is desirable upgraded and greatly improves the overall driving experience of the car. Ride
is firm, but comfortable for a long drive. Operation is very reliable and without issue and the engine pulls hard
off idle up to 5000 rpm. It is a lot of fun to kick down at a roll as the car sets you back in the seat and smokes
the tires. The suspension launches straight with no wheel hop when you mat it and spins the tires without brake
torquing. The car as is would make a great reliable, daily driver that would be a blast to drive everyday to work.
It is really a fun car to drive with its throaty exhaust and excellent power. This car offers a lot of potential
with some light trim work will only will only improve the value of this car.
Other then some minor interior detailing, this car needs nothing else replaced and is road ready for cruising.
Mechanically it has been totally gone through and all maintenance items (battery, alternator, brakes, radiator,
etc) are new and have been replaced! You can drive this car literally anywhere without issue. So if doing a full
restoration or building a bad news street terror is outside your skills level but your looking a for a great
musclecar this the car for you. When you consider the full restoration numbers matching cars run $50K plus and most
of the cars below $10K, well let's just say are in need of a lot of work.
That said I have tried my best to represent this car as honestly as possible, however it is sold as is and there is
no warranty implied or otherwise stated.

GM looks to combat high theft rates on SUVs with added tech

Tue, 24 Dec 2013 14:30:00 EST

The Cadillac Escalade has been at or near the top of most-stolen and insurance-loss lists for more than seven years, until it dropped to number six earlier this year. In 2011 it was fitted with a host of new security features to address its easy-to-override features and that has brought the number of thefts down, but when eight of the ten most stolen rides are large SUVs from General Motors, no one will argue that something else needs to be done.
Thus, GM has fitted this same theft-deterring tech to the 2015 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon. The Suburban and Tahoe will get the steering lock that the Escalade and Yukon already get, plus bolted-down third-row seats to deter thefts like this, stronger door lock cylinders and shields, and side-cut keys to inhibit picking.
Additional security measures in a Theft Protection Package can be purchased for $395, consisting of sensors on the greenhouse glass and interior, an incline/tilt sensor and added "key control systems" to make it more difficult for the men in black balaclavas to steal what you bought.

Tarantino's stolen Chevy Malibu from Pulp Fiction recovered after 19 years [w/video]

Mon, 29 Apr 2013 10:15:00 EST

Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.
As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
