This is a frame off built, rust free 1981 El Camino with 2000 miles since completion that the owner built for a family member. It has a fresh 355 Chevy block, Turbo 350 trans with shift kit that locks 1st and 2nd gear and a 2800 9" converter shifted by a new Hurst 1/4 Stick automatic shifter. The front suspension is new with disc brakes and 2 1/2 inch dropped spindles. It has a 9" Ford rear with 4:11 positraction rear and air ride rear suspension that allows you to raise and lower the rear at your discretion. The interior features new Momo seats with the power driver's seat having 6 way settings to choose from. The custom dash contain Auto Meter gauges and it has " Lizard Skin" insulation and sound deadening for your comfort. The Stainless exhaust is 2 1/2 inches through the Stainless Magna Flow mufflers that exit through the center of the new rear bumper that was purchased to make sure . This beauty rides on 18.8 front and 18.9 BFG XDW tires mounted on Foose Wheels. The wheels have a scratch on one rim and a piece missing out of the second on the edge on the passenger side both of them barely noticeable but can be repaired. The windshield molding is also missing because it was originally completed with Black molding but the family member wanted chrome and then decided that they preferred another vehicle after the molding was removed and disposed of.The only metal work done to this vehicle is the filling in of the front and rear side marker lights. This is definitely a "turnkey" vehicle that shows and runs very well since the owner spared no expense in building this vehicle which you cannot build for less than 2-3 times the price. Additional pictures of the undercarriage will be posted prior to the end of the auction so that you may see the craftsmanship in the frame off construction of this vehicle. The owner invites you , or your representative, to inspect this vehicle via appointment only. Please be advised that this vehicle is also for sale locally.

The color of this vehicle is Red not Orange and it has Borla Pro FXS Mufflers. The owner has ordered the chrome windshield molding to replace the missing molding and the tires are BF Goodrich G Force T/A KDWs.

The Z06 is just about everything we got in the last ZR1, but better.
After a bright-yellow false start, here is the real thing: the fourth-generation, 2015 Corvette Z06. If Chevrolet makes a ZR1 version of the C7 Corvette, it's going to be absolutely mega, because the Z06 is just about everything we got in the last ZR1, but better.

With all of the attention given to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray lately, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's already well along in production, yet tooling up for the new C7 has only just begun. In fact, production of the outgoing C6 generation in Bowling Green, Kentucky just halted on Thursday.
As the C6 has aged, production numbers have predictably ebbed along with demand, but this year, the addition of the 427 and 60th anniversary models resulted in an uptick in vehicles built - this, despite a model year shortened by around 25 percent to accomodate the new model changeover. The final C6 Corvette ever, No. 13,466 built this year, was a white 427 Convertible destined for the General Motors Heritage Center museum. The car's 7.0-liter V8 heart was assembled by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter himself.
In total, Bowling Green pushed out 215,100 C6 Corvettes over nine years. If you're still a C6 fan at heart and are hoping to get a good deal on a phase-out model, step lively - Chevrolet reportedly had about 6,100 unsold units, which Autoweek suggests is good for around five and a half months of supply at the model's current sales rates. Given that demand will likely slacken even further as the C7 draws closer, that should be a big enough stockpile to keep dealers satisfied until 2014 Stingrays begin showing up on their forecourts in December.
