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.

Dodge vs. Chevy tug-of-war taken to the extreme

Mon, 17 Dec 2012 14:58:00 EST

They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.
We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado tows in new configurator, microsite

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 16:05:00 EST

Judging by your continued enthusiastic response to configurator notices, dear reader, you enjoy speccing out new cars as much as we do. Better still, there tends to be even more ways to personalize, configure and bloat theoretical MSRPs on full-size trucks as there are with more ordinary passenger cars. In addition to trim level, engine and transmission choices, truck buyers usually have to specify items like cab configuration, bed length, number of driven axles, tow packages, gear ratios and all sorts of bits and bobs.
That's why we're pleased to see the DIY specification utility for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado come alive so soon after this week's Detroit Auto Show debut. While the configurator lacks pricing (General Motors hasn't announced numbers yet) and full options, you can still spec out your half-ton rig, and even print it out or email it to your friends. Beyond the configurator, the new model-specific site is pretty cool, too, with various videos and closer looks at the truck's new features.
The new Chevrolet pickup range won't be on dealer lots until sometime this summer, so whether you're a building contractor, an avid sportsman or just a guy or gal that loves full-size trucks, you might want to check out the link below to keep your appetite whetted. If you're more of a Sierra fan, well, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while - GMC hasn't updated its site yet.

GM recalling 426,000 sedans over faulty transmission shift cable

Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:58:00 EST

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.
