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.

It's been a little over a year and a half since General Motors first confirmed plans to offer a diesel-powered Chevrolet Cruze here in the United States, and we've now learned that the oil-burning compact will debut under the lights of the Chicago Auto Show in February. According to GM Authority, the Cruze Eco-D will be introduced as part of the entire 2014 model year Cruze range, set to go on sale in the second quarter of this year.
Earlier reports have indicated that the diesel Cruze will be able to achieve fuel economy numbers in the range of 50 miles per gallon. For comparison, the similarly sized Volkswagen Jetta TDI is rated at 30/42 mpg city/highway, but as we found out in our long-term test of the 2011 model, hitting 50 mpg was a piece of cake.
Official specifications will be released at the time of the 2014 Cruze's unveiling, though reports have stated that the sedan will be powered by a reworked version of the 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-four found in the Holden Cruze CDX overseas. In that application, the four-pot oil-burner produces 160 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque - increases of 20 hp and 29 lb-ft over the 2.0-liter engine used in VW's Jetta TDI.
With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.
Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).
It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.
