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. The car has been Tubbed and has a Narrowed Rear End which is a 12 Bolt Posi with 4:88 Richmond Gears, T/A 356-T6 Bilet Rear End Cover and Strange 32 Spline Axles. The 4 link Rear Suspension has AFCO Double Adjustable Billet Coil Overs, the Front End has been lowered with Drop Spindles and has Adjustable Race Shocks, the car has Power Steering, the Front Brakes are Wilwood Lightweight Drag Racing Discs with Drilled Rotors, the car runs super cool and has NO Overheating Problems even in my 90 degree South Florida Weather with Dual Electric 13.5 Fans and the Factory Big Block Radiator, The Fuel System is two seperate Systems with S/S Lines with separate Fuel Pumps and Filters for the Motor and NOS System. 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.

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.
General Motors isn't the first automaker to deliver in-car Internet access, but a proposed plan announced today could make the technology more widespread than any of its competitors have offered. By the 2015 model year, most Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC products in the US and Canada will offer 4G LTE mobile broadband access. Initially, GM will just be pairing with AT&T to deliver this service, but additional carriers will be revealed in the future.
Current in-car Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, but GM says that 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G service and will allow for full Internet access, including streaming video for entertainment as well as services like real-time traffic updates and navigation driving directions. There is also no need for a paired smartphone with this new system, which should make it easier to use, and GM and AT&T will also be working together to develop new apps for customers.
Buyers can expect to start seeing 4G LTE in their cars starting next year, and GM is already planning to expand the service to other global markets as well. All of the information from GM's announcement is posted in a press release below.
As part of a longstanding tradition, the MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, Joe Flacco, quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, was given a new car directly after the game and trophy celebrations. For 2013, that car is a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and it was presented to Flacco by Rick Flick of Banner Chevrolet, a dealership in New Orleans that was wiped out by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 before returning to prominence as the only Chevy dealer in Orleans Parish.
Last year, Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning took home a 2012 Corvette GS Centennial Edition. Manning also won in 2008, when he selected a Cadillac Escalade Hybrid as his reward. In 2011, quarterback Aaron Rodgers accepted the keys to a Camaro convertible.
Though we're most definitely an auto-obsessed group, we did watch the Big Game along with nearly everyone else in America. And we've gotta say, as if winning the Super Bowl and receiving the Tiffany-designed Pete Rozelle Trophy wasn't enough for the multi-millionaire MVP athletes, a brand-new C7 seems like an awfully generous prize.
