Here's a little information on the car (taken from our website).
The Body was taken off of the frame & completely dissembled. Frame and most of all the metal (including bolts) were sandblasted and powder-coated. New motor mounts and bolts. The gas tank was removed and cleaned out. A new sending unit was installed for the fuel gauge. All the gas lines have been replaced. 
All new brake system (lines, calipers, rotors, pads, master cylinder.) All the wheels were removed and bearings & seals installed. New set of 4 tires. New shocks installed all the way around. The exhaust system was replaced entirely to the factory exhaust. 
The 327 engine was dissembled was professions who have had experience with "muscle" car engines. (Tommy, a man who helped, has a mechanics degree. He along with others he helped with this car, rebuilt a 400 engine for a 1967 Pontiac Firebird.) The engine block was bored 30 thousandths over. New crankshaft & camshaft was put back to factory specs. New oil pump, rod bearings & main bearings. The heads were reworked and all new pistons & rings. All new gaskets and seals. New water & fuel pumps. New alternator and starter. All new wires & coil, distributor cap. New carburetor. New clutch & tachometer cable. New heater core & hoses. New vacuum lines.Transmission was opened up and checked (everything was great!) and new seals were installed. All new "U" joints from front to back (including 2 shafts). 2 back wheels, and all new hardware and body put back on.
The interior as original as possible. As you can see in some of the pictures, the original dash is still in. It has a crack near the drive side glass. The inside of the car was repainted. A professional from Tennessee did most of the interior work. A local shop installed a new radio and aftermarket speakers which are located in the trunk area behind the seats. The radio (as pictured) looks like the original, but has a AUX input as well as many other functions. Springs were replaced in the seats along with the cushions and seat covers. A new set of door panels and new doors for the back door compartments (battery doors). New battery was installed. All new fuses and light bulbs. All new glasses and gauges. New light switch & headlights. The headlights were dissembled and sanded down and painted.
  Door handles were replaced. New radio, speakers, & antenna. All new door seals. New latches for the top. The car was painted locally. New windshield wiper motor, but still needs wiper arms & reservoir.. Being a convertible, it's not driven in the rain. There hasn't been any need to install them. 
As you can see from the pictures on the website, there's some issues with the car. The car was driven by a family member, and they put their elbow through the middle console (bad day...). There was ALOT of time & money spent restoring this car to completely restore it back to factory conditions as possible. This is a head turning car! 

You are more than welcome to contact me with any other questions you may think of that was not answered above. Thank you!

2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Convertible offers a few more views before reveal

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 10:00:00 EST

Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.
From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.
As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.

Helicopter crashes on Top Gear Korea set while chasing Corvette ZR1

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 10:00:00 EST

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.

GM already raising prices on 2014 Silverado and Sierra pickups

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 14:00:00 EST

General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
