Numbers Matching 396/375hp (L78) El Camino SS with Muncie M22 Transmission in Excellent overall condition! This
Very Original El Camino SS 396 looks, runs, and drives fantastic! Its original Code 10 black paint was repainted
once back in the 90's and still looks great on the very straight, solid, and original body. There are some minor
nicks and scratches from limited use. There is a spot on the tailgate and the right side of the roof behind the
window where there is some slight cracks in the paint as shown in the pics. There are only 2 minor rust spots on
the car. A couple tiny bubbles below rear window trim on drivers side and about a quarter size area at the bottom
of the right fender behind front tire. That's it and both areas are shown in pics. Overall, this car is very
presentable and draws lots of praise and attention. The original black bucket seat console interior is in excellent
condition. The seats have a split on the bottoms at a seam. Door buzzer still works! All of the glass and trim is
in excellent condition.
The Drive Train is the Original and Numbers Matching L78 396/375hp Engine, Muncie M22 Transmission, and KF Code 12
Bolt Rear End. This car runs, sounds, and drives awesome! Engine does not smoke, overheat, or have any unusual
noises. Oil pressure runs between 30 and 60psi. I did note that the VIN on the transmission appears to have been
ground out and restamped (shown in pic) and I'm not sure why but it is likely a factory grind out due to a mistake
as transmission definitely appears to be original to the car. Dates are correct (shown in pic) and it works
flawlessly. Even the reverse lock works. Factory power steering and power disc brakes help it to steer and stop
with ease. Car has its original SS wheels and nearly new BF Goodrich T/A Radials.
The undercarriage on this El Camino is very clean, original, straight, solid, and rust free! Bed is in beautiful
shape as well.

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.

Silverado HD, Touareg V10 TDI face off in diesel tug-of-war

Sun, 30 Dec 2012 19:01:00 EST

A couple weeks ago, we watched a Chevrolet Silverado get dominated by a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty in a fullsize pickup tug-of-war, but in that truck's defense, Chevy's Vortec gas engine was no match for the torquey Cummins turbo diesel. For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a Duramax-powered Silverado HD takes on Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.
Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the Dodge versus Chevy video, with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backwards. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.
It just goes to show, though, that big tires, bolt-on fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect when the Touareg V10 TDI has towed a Boeing 747 in the past?

New Bright creating exclusive 1:8 scale radio-controlled C7 Corvette

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 17:45:00 EST

If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.
Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 - representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.
