      Up for auction is my 1962 Impala SS. This car is a true, numbers matching SS. The exterior trim code is 936 Ermine White. The interior trim code is 845 Aqua Bucket Seat. The first 6 digits of the vin, 21847L, means this car is a true 1962 SS Hard Top built in the Los Angeles CA factory. This car has been rebuilt mechanically and modified for more driver comfort and drivability. The original 327 has been rebuilt completely using 210 hardened valves so you can run unleaded fuel. It also has a Comp Cams mild cam "12-211-2" with a .470 valve lift. The carb has been rebuilt as well. The radiator is a new custom built aluminum radiator from CG&J in Gladsden AL. The transmission is a freshly rebuilt 700r connected to a new 3.73 rear end. The brakes are new all around with front disc brakes from Hubbard's. The steering rack has been replaced with a CPP 500 p/s box and new intermediate shaft. Springs and shocks are MOOG with all new bushings front and rear. The front A-arms have also been replaced with CPP tubular A-arms for better handling. The car has a 1" drop and has a great stance. The car is a factory A/C car and I have upgraded to a Vintage Air Gen IV system. It's ice cold and the fan puts out far more air than the original. The gauges are upgraded versions from Classic Instruments. They are the "G" series and match the car perfectly. The wheels are American Racing Torque Thrust. They are Billet and are 18" front/20" rear. Tires are Nitto 235/40/R18 in the front and 275/35/R20 in the rear. All work on the car was completed in November 2013. Since the rebuild I have put just under 2,000 miles on the car. Everything has been dialed in and it runs, drives, turns, and stops like a new car. The steering has no play and the front shows very little body roll when cornering.

    Cosmetically, the paint is in fair condition and appears to be mostly original. There is lacquer checking on every panel except the left rear quarter panel. The paint is still glossy though and shows well. It has a great patina to it and isn't noticeable until you get close to the car. The body is rust free and shows as a California-built car that spent most of its life in a dry climate. The bumpers are original and have some pitting and a couple small dings. The emblems, mirrors, doors handles, and window chrome look new. The glass is the original tinted glass to the car and is also in great shape. On the interior- the seats, carpet, door panels, rear panels, parcel shelf, console, steering wheel, and knobs are all restored or new. The headliner is original and is the "star" pattern. The dash is in exception shape and has a deep shine to it. You can choose to repaint it or keep it in its patina. I would encourage any serious buyer to come see/drive this car. You will not be disappointed. I will consider swapping for a Corvette. Corvette. If you have any questions or pic requests please don't hesitate to ask. I can email pictures of the complete rebuild. Buyer will get a photo album of the restoration and a binder with all receipts.THIS CAR WILL BE AT THE ACCA AUTOFAIR AT CHARLOTTE MOTOR SPEEDWAY SEPT. 18-21. Call Seth at 704-651-5349. Please leave a message, no texts.

Feds open investigation into Chevy Express, Ford Freestar rust issues

Wed, 28 Dec 2011

'Tis the season... for road salt. And with that, comes rust. And what does rust bring? Well, for Ford and General Motors, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation. According to The Detroit News, NHTSA is looking into potential recalls issues with Chevrolet Express vans and Ford Freestar minivans.
The feds have received five complaints that rust has caused leaking fuel filler pipes on 2003 Express vans. Separately, seven complaints have been filed over excessive rust in the rear wheel wells of 2004 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans. The Freestar and Monterey went out of production in 2007. Neither issue has resulted in any crashes or injuries, according to the report.

GM recalls select Chevy Cruze, Sonic and Buick Verano models over airbag issue

Wed, 14 Nov 2012

General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.
GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.

Watch how Corvette Racing's new collision-avoidance radar system works

Fri, 22 Mar 2013

When it comes to technology used in racecars, we generally expect it to trickle down to production cars, not the other way around. Well, Pratt & Miller has developed a new rear-facing radar that operates in a similar fashion to what we're used to in modern blind spot detection systems, only it is also capable of tracking cars as they approach and relaying vital information to the driver via a large display screen.
The innovative radar system debuted at last weekend's 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing, and this system makes perfect sense for endurance races like this since the cars sometimes have to drive through the night and in poor weather conditions.
The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify.
