1964 Corvette Coupe L84 327 375HP PB, being sold without the fuel injection unit. Engine: It has a 327 fully rebuilt. Old parts used inside the engine are the crank, rods, block and heads. All other parts inside block were replaced. I built this engine to speck, solid cam (Duntov 30/30) factory hi compression pistons and all other needed bits & pieces. Outside the engine I used the original starter (date coded) Water Pump, Fuel Pump and deep sump oil pan. I had the engine rebuilt with a winters intake and holly carb. This combination dynode out at 375HP @6400 RPM. The modifications on this engine are, distributor changed to electric pickup, rocker arms upgraded and the valve studs changed to thread in units. I have a complete and restored fuel injection unit with K66 ignition that I was going to sell with this car, but changed my mind. If interested in this setup, email me. Transmission : 4 speed, M21 close ratio Rear : Was a 456 Posi rear. When I pulled it for a rebuild, I changed the ratio to 411. Fully rebuilt with under 200 miles on it. Suspension : I replaced the front sway bar end links, rear shocks, rear spring and end links. The tires have less than 1000 miles on them. Every thing else has unknown wear/miles on it. Body: It now has a good coat of silver on it, but it was dark blue (Daytona Blue) when it left the factory. The emblems are shinny, but have some paint loss. Sometime before I owned this car, someone had all the wheel wells flared out. When this was corrected back to a factory look, the job wasn't done so well. Although the paint is good, the body would be considered driver quality. Interior: Now black, the factory color was two tone, Dark Blue and White. The current seat covers are a little worn with slight rips on the upper inner sides of them. The carpet is a bit faded and the door panels look good. I had the steering collum rebuilt and the dash wiring harness replaced a while back. Misc : I had the engine harness replaced with the engine rebuild. I replaced the headlamp wiring to remedy a headlamp that wouldn't open properly. I replaced the alternator with a 130 amp unit. It really makes a difference on the brightness of the tail lamps. The license plates on the car have been updated to old black plates though the state DMV and come with the car. Runs/Drives: Starts up easy, idles well, runs good. Has Power brakes, stops good for 4 wheel drum brakes.

The last time General Motors had a diesel passenger car in the US, it was the 1.8-liter 1986 Chevette. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show today, GM is unveiling the much-anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. The compact bows with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that boasts 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with full twist coming on at just 2,000 rpm. What's more, the common-rail, direct-injection diesel features an overboost function that allows the engine to deliver up to 280 lb-ft of torque for 10 seconds at a time. Even with 10 more horsepower and 110 more pound-feet of torque than the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder in the Cruze, the 2.0-liter diesel engine can return up to 42 mpg (highway) bolted to its six-speed automatic transmission.
If you're counting, that figure meets the less powerful Cruze Eco with a six-speed manual transmission. More importantly, the auto transmission Cruze Diesel matches its main competition, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, in highway fuel economy. The Cruze 2.0 TD (as it will be badged) can also handle up to 20 percent biodiesel (B20), whereas the Jetta is rated only for B5. General Motors has not released city fuel economy for its newest diesel, but we do know how much it will cost you to jump behind the driver's seat.
GM will kindly ask for $25,695, plus an $810 destination fee. That marks a $2,115 premium over a loaded Cruze LTZ Auto and $2,640 more than the Jetta TDI, though the MSRP will net you a leather interior, 17-inch alloy wheels and an Aero Performance Package, as well as a two-year maintenance plan and five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared to the gas-powered Cruze, you also lose a couple cubic feet of rear cargo space thanks to a 17-liter diesel emission fluid tank. That urea fluid, which helps put the clean in clean diesel, will need to be refilled at least every 10,000 miles.
The formula of Top Gear Korea is seemingly about the same as it is everywhere else in the world, including the flagship British original: involve interesting cars in fantastical situations with charismatic hosts. That prescription has proved to be pretty reliable over the years, and has lead to some truly memorable and exciting pieces of television.
Something like that was undoubtedly what the Korean producers were after when they lined up this segment - a drag race between a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and an AH1 Cobra military helicopter. The planners almost certainly did not expect the filming of the segment to go quite as wrong as it actually did, with the helicopter actually crashing into the dirt after the "drag race" had been completed. Thankfully, we're told that no one was seriously injured in the crash, but the footage, in the video below, is pretty damn chilling to watch, nevertheless.

The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
