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.

Refreshed 2014 Camaro confirmed for New York debut

Thu, 07 Mar 2013 16:15:00 EST

We've already seen leaked specs and potential spy shots, but the refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show in a few weeks.
Besides a tweaked exterior and the possibility of a high-output LS7 under the hood, we really don't know much else about the 2014 Camaro, but here's hoping for an improved interior, too.
In addition to the refreshed Camaro, Chevrolet will also be showing off the recently introduced Chevrolet SS, making its debut on the auto show circuit, and we'll also get our first look at the C7 Corvette coupe and convertible side-by-side.

Hot Wheels' Twitter-enabled vending machine coughs up free Camaro diecasts

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 19:29:00 EST

There are still plenty of companies that haven't gotten the whole social media thing down pat yet, but Hot Wheels isn't one of them. During the recent Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Hot Wheels created a lot of buzz for itself by using a vending machine filled with Chevrolet Camaro models, but instead of money to get the cars, show attendees just had to use Twitter.
To get the free car, people were asked to send a tweet to Hot Wheels Canada saying what they liked about the new Hot Wheels Edition Camaro, and including the #ChevyCIAS hashtag. This seemed to be a popular marketing tool, too, as AdWeek reports that the @HotWheelsCanada account more than tripled in followers during the course of the 10-day show. Looking ahead, this could open up even more innovative marketing possibilities using social media.
Check out the video posted below to watch how it works, and while the auto show has ended and the free-car giveaway has too, we're almost certain that some of the 1,500 freebies will make their way onto eBay.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra debut all-new designs, three new engines

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 10:49:00 EST

General Motors has finally dropped the curtain on the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra. Both trucks have undergone substantial revisions with updated versions of the company's 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 engines. In a shot across the bows of both Ford and Chrysler, GM says it won't use a V6 engine adapted from passenger car applications. Instead, it developed the 4.3-liter engine based on its proven truck-duty architecture.
All three mills will boast direct injection fuel systems as well as a new cylinder head design. Combined with a revised piston, the new engines feature a smaller combustion chamber with a compression ratio of 11:1 or higher depending on the application. Cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing are all part of the recipe, and each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with auto grade breaking. So far, no fuel economy or horsepower figures have been released, though GM says the new engines will best their predecessors in both areas.
Outside, the trucks feature a number of enhancements to reduce drag and wind noise, and GM claims both the Silverado and Sierra will offer buyers some of the quietest cabins in the class. Extended cab models now feature front-hinged rear doors to allow easier access to the back passenger area, and Crew Cab buyers can now select between a five-foot, eight-inch bed or a six-foot, six-inch bed. Buyers with a mind toward going off road will also rejoice in the return of the Z71 package, complete with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and additional under-body protection.
