1956 Chevy Nomad in very good condition. This is a beautiful driver with a stock 350 four bolt main block, big
heads, w/nice cam, Edelbrock carb and intake w/headers (installed at 98,000 miles, so no more than 3,220 miles on
rebuilt engine, Tuned by Bob and Nick Jennings in So.Cal), backed by a 700r overdrive transmission (rebuilt and
installed with less than 1,000 miles), with glass-packs out the sides. The stunning matador red/(orange) paint is
around 15 years new and always garaged. It does have a couple small spots blistering in the front lower fenders,
the rear tailgate and lift gate area have not been restore completely. The interior was restored to 100% stock
condition two years ago from the metal up, with zero rust on the inside metal (except for the wheel well, which was
repaired when the body was painted), everything was sealed with POR 15, new head liner, new seats with new seat
belts where installed, new door panels, new window regulators, new door locks, all the interior chrome was
re-plated, new carpet with insulation, and a new electrical harness under the dash. The only thing not stock is the
stereo with speakers in the kick panels. Michelin tires have lots of tread (215/75/15) with Rally Rims all the way
around . Most of the outside chrome was re-plated, but some exterior pieces have light pitting as seen in the
photos. Windshield is crazing a little on the lower left driver side (see photo). This car starts fast with the
electric fuel pump, runs, drives, stops, and is a "quick" fun cruiser. This was my grandfathers car, and he
purchased it in 1957 from the first owner. Clear title with zero accidents.

Chevrolet SS previewed by Holden VF Commodore SS V show car

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 10:55:00 EST

It won't be long before we see the official, production-ready Chevrolet SS sedan (hint: it will be revealed this weekend). And to tide us over until all of the official details are released about the US-spec version, we have this: the Holden VF Commodore SS V show car, a performance-oriented brother to the Calais V that debuted earlier in the week.
What we really want to know about the SS V is what lies underhood, but General Motors' Australian arm is keeping that under wraps until the Chevy model breaks cover this weekend. Nevertheless, it's obvious that the SS V will be a serious performer, with all sorts of aggressive cues driving that home on the car's exterior. Take a look at those 20-inch billet aluminum wheels that hide big Brembo brake calipers up front, the sculpted hood and front fascia, the wide air intakes with LED running lights and the quad exhaust pipes out back. It's like the Pontiac G8 GXP never even left us.
Inside, there's a sporty-looking interior with aluminum accents that mix in with black leather and suede surfaces, all tied together in the middle with an eight-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. It looks great, and again, while we don't know anything regarding powertrain details, it makes us oh-so happy to see a manual shifter smack dab in the middle of the center console.

Chevrolet donates 300 vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 17:45:00 EST

Super Storm Sandy took out a lot of automobiles in its path of destruction through the Northeast last October. The number surpassed 250,000 at last count, and a few of those were owned by Chevrolet - cars either sitting on dealership lots or waiting at port to be shipped off. Rendered unsellable by the water damage inflicted by Sandy, these vehicles were facing the crusher. But Chevy didn't send them there.
Instead, Chevy had a better idea: It will be donating 300 of these vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders at Guardian Centers in Perry, GA. Chevy is the official automotive partner of Guardian Centers, which is an 830-acre facility that trains first responders in disaster preparedness. Junked cars are practically a consumable commodity there, where a full-size cityscape simulator gives trainees an entire urban center in which to train for all sorts of rescue operations and disaster scenarios.
Chevy says its particular vehicles will be used "in conjunction with role players for wide area searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualty exercises." While grim scenarios all, we're certainly glad there are people out there preparing for the unexpected. While a zombie apocalypse isn't officially on the list of potential disasters to prepare for, when the virus hits, we'll be hot-footing it to Perry, GA to hang with these guys and gals.

Vert-A-Pac train cars kept your Chevy Vega's price in check

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:46:00 EST

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
