Up for sale a beautiful, highly upgraded 2005 Chevrolet Corvette that just passed 60k miles. I bought this car in TX a few years back and have loved every minute of driving it. Sadly the AF has moved me out to CA and due to the performance upgrades I can't register it here. Since the registration from SC is going to run out soon, I am forced to part with it. Your chance to get a great car with a lot of awesome work done to it. This car is fully loaded with just about every option, at the bottom of the listing I’ll include the codes and associated options so you can see exactly what it has. Upgrades to this car include the following: Full rework of the clutch and clutch system including: Tick & Monster Complete Clutch Swap Package ($1250) http://www.tickperformance.com/tick-monster-complete-clutch-swap-package-05-08-co rvette-z06/ This clutch is fully adjustable to your preference and bleeding the entire system is now super easy because I have installed a remote bleeder line. All the hydraulic lines are now braided stainless (far better them GMs rubber hoses) and routed far away from the exhaust heat. Nothing to worry about with your clutch again. All new exhaust system from block to tips including: Melrose Motorsports LS2 Corvette Header system ($1600) http://www.melrosecorvette.com/2005-2007-ls2-corvette-header-system/ LG Motorsports GT4 cat-back muffler kit ($1000) http://www.lgmotorsports.com/product_info.php?cPath=343_435&products_id=2070 Here’s the deal with this exhaust, I got a good deal on the LG mufflers so I thought I would try them. Personally, they are too loud for me and there is some drone between about 1800 and 2500 RPM. I bought a lightly used Z06 exhaust that I was planning on swapping out but have just run out of time and now am deploying soon. Let me know if you would like me to include the Z06 exhaust (worth a few hundred at least) or even have it swapped out prior to having the car sent to you. Suspension and chassis work to include: Replacing sway bars, shocks and mono leafs with almost new OEM Z51 components and lowering the car appx 1” ($500). A new heat-shielded tunnel brace ($120). The car is much stiffer, the tunnel brace controls the body and frame flex and also shields the interior from the exhaust heat. Overall the car rides much better, has tighter control with less roll and sway in the turns. All new intake system including: Vararam VR-SC1 Gen2 SnakeCharmer cold air intake ($300) http://www.vararam.com/sc1.html I had both the throttle body and intake plenum bored and polished ($300) New spark plugs and MSD Super Conductor wires ($150) New Duralast Gold Battery ($140) http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Duralast-Gold-Battery/2005-Chevrolet-Corve tte/_/N-jmmnqZacy27?itemIdentifier=21878_817422_0_ I also sent the ECU out for tuning to take advantage of the new airflow and increase throttle response and performance. They also programmed out the 1-4 skip-shift so now you get to decide what gear you want to be in, not the car. ($150) Interior: Sound and heat deadening throughout entire cabin ($400) This greatly reduces the heat soak into the cabin and makes it where you don’t need to run your AC just to make a drive livable. No more hot drinks in the cup holders! Hydrocarbon wrapped center console finished in 2008 GM Hydrocarbon ($300) http://www.performancecorvettes.com/products/Carbon-Fiber-Corvette-Radio-Center-C onsole-for-C6-Corvette.html Matching carbon fiber door release bezels ($140) http://www.performancecorvettes.com/products/Corvette-C6-Carbon-Fiber-Door-Releas e-Bezels.html Pioneer DVD/Navigation system ($200) Again, only selling this car because the AF moved me to CA and can’t register it here and I’m being deployed out before too long. I need to sell it relatively soon and this is a great chance for you to get a car with all the work done and at a deep discount to you. This car has always been smoke and pet free. There are some smell scratches and scuffs here and there which I have close up pics of and can send your way. Right now one of the TPMS is reading zero so I’ll take it to the dealership this week to have it checked out, I’m suspecting it needs to be re-calibrated. I have over 80 pictures of the car and it’s easy for me to take more of anything requested. Just let me know what you would like. Please contact me with any questions you have, I’m working evenings this weekend but will find time to talk with you about any questions you have. Included: CarCraft Custom fit cover ($200) 2 Keyless remotes and keys Shipping: I realize that the buyer will most likely be outside of CA and as such I will drive the car up to 2 hours (ie Reno, NV) Even if you decide to have the car shipped I could drop it off in NV to save some on shipping costs. Contact me and we can work out any details. Payment: Paypal works great for deposits, we can work out the details on the paymmethod, but money orders or cashier’s checks would be the easiest. Clear SC Title. No Salvage History. No Rebuilt History. No Flood Damage. No Liens.

The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.
That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, having stared at the Impala across the showroom floor for a year, gets nips and tucks all over inspired by its larger brother. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the base car will get a stop-start system and 23 city miles per gallon, 35 highway, each number representing a one-mpg improvement over the 2013 car. Output is 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque.
Opt for the 2.0-liter turbo and, while power holds steady at 259 hp, torque goes up by 14 percent to a striking 295 lb-ft (a figure Chevy calls best in the class). The final details include newly programmed transmission shift points and faster shifts, for better engaging and enjoying the added power.
Looks-wise, the grille's been reshaped to be more in line with the new Chevrolet look, a narrower upper grille hovering over a larger lower grille.
It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro - the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.
The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?
At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.
