1969 Chevrolet El Camino PRO-MOD XTREME STREET, Just completed a 2 year makeover on this one of a kind El Camino... I am the third owner of this documented 69k original mile car that I have owned for 15 years. I was Friends with the Second Owner (my Neighbor's Brother) who purchased the car in 1972.. I have the Protecto Plate, Original Hand Written Window Sticker, Owners Manual with Original Jacket, Pre-Delivery Service and Check Sheet, Insurance Documents and other papers that prove the mileage and Ownership.... There is so much to say about the car I guess I will start with the Motor, it is a 454 cid 4 Bolt Main that is 60 over making it 468cid, it has a Rare set of worked 69' Corvette 427/435 L-72 Closed Chamber 107cc Rectangular Port Heads casting no. 3919840 with Crane Roller Rockers, Polished Steel Crank, Eagle Rods, 11.1 Half Domed Pistons, 700 Lift Crane NOS Roller Cam with a 106 lobe center and Roller Lifters, MSD 6AL Multi-Retard Ignition Box, Holley 850 CFM Dual Feed Double Pumper Polished Carb and a K@N Real Carbon Fibre Air Cleaner, Custom Real Carbon Fibre Valve Covers, Motor has not been on the dyno but I would guess approx. 650hp on Motor + 300 NOS...... Keith Wilson Owner of Wilson Manifolds is one of my Close Friends and built me a Trick Two Stage NOS System with a Fogger and Plate on one of his Custom Aluminum Intake Manifolds that has been Ported (Port Plenum, Divider Walls @ Roof Lines for flow and distribution) and installed his Nitrous Pro Flow Direct Port V-Force Nozzles. The Fogger and Plate are set to a Conservative 150HP each but can set up with new nozzles to be a lot more HP which I didn't need, Dual LED RED Purge System that exits from back of the hood, Hooker Comp Titanium Coated Headers that are connected to my Trick High Dollar Exhaust System that took many hours to build by AC Carcraft, these guys are one of the best fabricators in the Business and took my brainstorm and made it happen.. 5 Inch Double Wall Polished S/S Tips with S/S Bezels to protect the Fenders from the heat, I had wanted to make the car able to have Open Headers at the push of a button and have the looks of a Pro Mod Exhaust and be able to Idle in Traffic next to a Cop without getting more attention from noise and it works KILLER!! Everywhere I go people can't believe how nice it came out and how Awesome it sounds Open or Closed.... When it is closed it exits though quiet Turbo Mufflers and pipes that are just in front of the rear tires.. The transmission is a modified Turbo 400 with a 2800 TCI Converter.

Triple Fuel Pressure Gauges for Motor and each system. It has a Switch on the Dash which arms the Second Fuel System and Fuel Pump when you want to use the NOS..The Alcatara Racing Steering Wheel with Bilet Disconect has two buttons, one for the Purge and one for the Second Stage, the First Stage has a Micro Switch on the Carb that only works when the NOS is Armed and operates the Fogger at wide open throttle. I have only used the NOS a few times to Dial it in and have Never Raced the Car at the Track.. I built it to be the Baddest Street Car that can still be driven to Shows, not like a lot of Radical Street Legal Race Cars that are too Radical too really drive... The car runs good on Pump gas but I recommend C-12 if your going to spray it.. I run C-12 because the amount of miles I drive it really doesn't matter.. The fuel cell is 16 Gallons.. The tires are Mickey Thompson Sportsman Radials 26x8x15 front and 33x22.5x15 rear. Wheels are Billet Specialities SFI 15.1 Approved Street Lite Race Wheels 15x7 front and 15x15 rear.

Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.
The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.
As we continue to put together all the data for the year-end edition of By The Numbers, General Motors has announced that it sold more than a million vehicles in the US last year that achieved at least 30 miles per gallon on the highway. More impressively, GM managed this feat using multiple strategies including small vehicle size, turbocharged engines and hybrid or plug-in technologies across four brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC) accounting for 13 separate models. This number will grow even more in 2013 thanks to cars like the all-electric Spark, the diesel Cruze, the range-extended Cadillac ELR and the Buick Encore compact CUV.
GM's small car sales were up 39 percent last year helping to attain this million-sales mark for 30-mpg models, and almost 40 percent of all GM sales consisted of cars with fuel-efficient I4 engines. In regards to more advanced means of improving fuel economy, GM says that it plans on having 500,000 vehicles with "some form of electrification" on the road by 2017.
Scroll down for the full list of GM's million 30+ mpg cars as well as an informative press release.
As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.
Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
