I need to sell my 1974 Chevelle Laguna S3 as soon as possible. I bought it about 5 years ago with the intention of building a street car that I could run at track day events as well. My dad helped me build it and helped with the expenses. Now he is ill and I want to give him the money he has invested in this car to help with his expenses. The car is a good running and driving car, it is almost complete with the exception of some interior trim and paint work. I have all the interior parts and they do come with the car, it will need a new headliner. All the glass is good, the power windows work properly, I even have the original factory swivel buckets seats that I will include. The car has had A LOT of work done to it. The car only has a little over 250 mile on it since I got it back on the road again after the rebuild. I don't have any Idea what the miles were before the rebuild as the odometer did not work. But since the dashboard and all the instruments have been replaced at the same time as all the mechanical work I can only use the mileage shown on the new speedometer. The car is a real factory S3 with the vinyl top delete option, which gives it the full size rear quarter windows. The NASCAR version of the S3 had this option, it is very rare for a street version. We did a lot of fabrication work to get rid of over five hundred pounds of weight and still not have it all cut up. I bough a fiberglass hood, trunk lid and rear bumper to save additional weight, but I haven't had time to install them. The car has the original 400CID small block engine that came in the car. The engine has been completely rebuilt. All of the machine work, balancing and cylinder heads were done by Orange engines, in Anaheim CA. The engine is bored .030 over stock to make it 406 CID. It has SpeedPro power forged pistons, Eagle forged steel crankshaft and Eagle forged connecting rods. The engine was balanced, decked and line bored. It has a Comp Cams performance cam and lifters. The heads are camel hump fuel injection SBC heads that were completely rebuilt by Orange Engine. The transmission was replaced with a new Turbo 400 from "Luke's transmission" in Riverside Ca. It has a Hurst ProMatic II ratchet shifter. The transmission is designed for the street and track day use. It will handle engines up to 800HP. It has stainless steel drums, HD clutches, manual valve body, HD internals and a deep sump pan. The torque converter is a 2500RPM HD unit designed for the street and track use. We also installed a HD external transmission cooler. The suspension has been modified to handle better and have a lower ride height. It has new NASCAR upper control arms, with custom made control arm mounts that incorporate dual position mounting brackets. The lower control arms are also fabricated NASCAR units. It has high performance GM front coil springs. Both the upper and lower control arms have the large HD ball joints. The exhaust system has long tube headers new mufflers and a NASCAR boom tube side exit exhaust. It sound great! The car has AERO 15X10 NASCAR style steel wheels with new 265x50x15 tires. The dashboard is fabricated with all new mechanical instruments. It has new front bucket seats and quick release seat belts. The car has had more work than I can list and I hate to sell it when it is so close to being finished. All that needs to be done is some interior work, a little body work and a paint job. The body has some rust but it is an easy fix. The trunk and frame are good, the only issues I know of are the ones I took pictures of. I have driven the car almost 300 miles since I got it running, it does not over heat, it doesn't seem to have any issues, it runs and drives very good and it is plenty fast! As I said before I need to sell this car to help my dad with his expenses, so I have decided to list it cheap and with NO RESERVE! I am also including the new fiberglass hood, the new fiberglass trunk lid and the new fiberglass rear bumper with the car. I will also include all my spare and original parts with the sale. I have the original swivel bucket seats, the center consul and a lot of other parts. Since I am listing this car for such a low starting bid and with NO RESERVE I am selling it as-is with no returns. Please feel free to ask questions. The registration is current, I have the clear CA title (pink slip) there are no issues, no back fees, NO salvage title, it's in my name, no problems, it's all good. Shipping is the buyers responsibility. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding.

We tell you about what a car is like to drive every day, remarking on throttle response, steering weight and feedback, squat, dive, brake fade and a dozen or more other factors of performance. What we can't tell you, though, is what the car does to us - how its performance impacts us, physically. That's what makes this video series from Chevrolet so darn cool.

The Bow-Tie brand rented out Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, got several (very) different individuals together, strapped a bunch of sensors to their bodies to record biometric data ranging from heart rate to respiration to brain activity, and then handed them keys to the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The results are explained in a series of videos, devoted to each driver, showing how different people react to the Corvette's performance.
If, like your author, you're a nerd for medical science, this is going to be a fascinating set of videos. If not, it's still pretty cool to see how the body of someone with racing experience, like Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi, reacts to tracking a car like the Corvette Stingray compared to the owner of legendary Detroit barbecue joint, Slows BBQ. Take a look below for all six videos from the series, or hop over to the Corvette Vimeo channel for the interactive experience, where you can see all the different metrics.
If you are a big fan of automotive oddities, this may come as a little treat. If you are a Shelby or Mustang diehard, prepare to have your sensibilities violated.

The master fabricators at BigDaddyCustoms are the minds behind what you see above. At first, it appears to be a slightly misshapen custom Mustang, modeled after "Eleanor" from Gone In 60 Seconds, but upon further examination, something appears to be amiss. In fact, the custom shop, based in India, has created an Eleanor replica grafted upon a lowly Chevrolet Optra. While it may take a second for the Optra to ring a bell, you should recognize its badge-engineered sibling, the Daewoo Lacetti, used on Top Gear.
We don't know what star would opt for the Reasonably Priced Car in Shelby's clothing, but it's clearly someone more concerned with the aesthetic than the performance credentials of this automotive mash-up.
The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.
