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.

Chevy rolls out Silverado HD High Country

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 13:00:00 EST

It's been a good week for heavy-duty truck buyers. First, Ram revealed the Black Package for its HD trucks, then it rolled out its new Power Wagon, and now Chevy's getting in on the action with its Silverado High Country HD. Okay, so it may not pack quite the attitude of Ram's latest 2500-series offerings, but the High Country HD will come as a welcome addition to the Chevy Trucks range to those looking to pull their horse, boat or other trailer without skimping on creature comforts.
Rolled out a little under a year ago, the High Country trim is Chevy's answer to the likes of the GMC Denali, Ford King Ranch and Ram Longhorn. It has until now only been offered on the light duty, 1500-series Silverado, but now extends to the 2500 and 3500-series HD models, as well.
So what sets a High Country pickup apart from lesser Chevy trucks? You'll be able to pick it out based on its chrome horizontal grille, body-color bumpers, 6-inch tubular side steps, 20-inch chrome wheels (18-inch on the 3500 and 17-inch on the dualie) and, of course, plenty of special badging. But it's inside where the High Country makes its mark, with a cabin decked out in saddle brown perforated leather, seats that are both heated and cooled, eight-inch touchscreen with full MyLink suite, Bose audio and park assist functions front and rear to keep those color-keyed bumpers looking fresh. (Though Chevy hasn't yet showed us the interior of the HD model, it'll presumably look mostly the same as the cab in the 1500 High Country in the gallery below.)

Why Cadillac thinks it needs to succeed in Europe to sell cars elsewhere

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

Ward's Auto has taken an interesting look at the renewed focus General Motors is showing towards Cadillac in Europe. Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac in Europe (pictured), says in order for the luxury brand to thrive in China, it first needs to succeed in the old country. The reason? Chinese buyers look to Europe for cues as to what's deemed worthy of the term "luxury." There are hurdles to the plan, however. In addition to the fact that the EU is flooded with high-end nameplates, GM doesn't necessarily have the distribution network in place to put buyers behind the wheel.
Combine that with persistent economic woes and Cadillac's checkered past marred by a lack of diesel engine options and a bankrupt distributor, and the road ahead for the brand looks like less of an uphill climb and more like a straight-up cliff face. But Docherty is optimistic and says she has a plan for the brand. We recommend heading over to Ward's for a closer look at the full read.

2015 Chevy Tahoe gets Police Patrol Vehicle treatment

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:29:00 EST

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.
