64 Chevrolet Corvair Monza W/ Factory Ac on 2040-cars
Donalds, South Carolina, United States
I bought this car in 2005 from second owner with 30,238 original miles on it. I bought and drove since that day as a daily driver. Car is 2 speed power glide transmission, with tinted windows, factory installed ac (VIN # checked to verify it is a factory ac car). I converted the ac to a Sanden 508 compressor and 134a refig. It does work and blow cold. I have the original ac Delco compress for anyone wishing to restore to original specs. I installed a Sony AM/FM single radio with new speakers hidden under seats to maintain original appearance. For drivability a Pertronix electronic ignition was installed. The seats have been professionally recovered using a Clark’s upholstery kit in original white. It has also received a recent tune up, all door rubber is new. The car does have some rust under the rear bumper (see pictures) and a patch in the passenger floor board. It was repainted at some point prior to my purchase in 2005. It look nice for cruise ins and as a driver. If you want a show car it would need a re-spray. As I said, I drive this car (no trailer queen here) and it is great fun, drives straight, pulls great, engine and transmission is strong, ac works, radio plays with good tires on it. She is an honest little car that could very easily be turned into a show car.

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
When it comes to technology used in racecars, we generally expect it to trickle down to production cars, not the other way around. Well, Pratt & Miller has developed a new rear-facing radar that operates in a similar fashion to what we're used to in modern blind spot detection systems, only it is also capable of tracking cars as they approach and relaying vital information to the driver via a large display screen.
The innovative radar system debuted at last weekend's 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing, and this system makes perfect sense for endurance races like this since the cars sometimes have to drive through the night and in poor weather conditions.
The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify.
This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.
Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...
