Up for sale is a TRUE 1970 Monte Carlo SS. It had spent all of its life in Las Vegas up until about 6 months ago. The car is LAZER straight with the exception of 2 quarter size dings on the rear quarter panels; 1 on either side (paint is cracked a bit). This was caused during shipping as the original manifold was left unsecured in the trunk area. As for rust.... well, there is ZERO!!!! The underneath is extremely clean!!!! The paint is victory red and is nice looking. Definitely drivers quality but not a show stopper!!! There are occasional scratches here and there but nothing obvious by any means. The interior I would rate a 6 out of 10. Everything is nicely in tact but being 44 years old it could stand to be freshened up. The interior consists of bucket seats, power windows, power driver seat, "airplane shifter," and also the rare option, back then, of a map light in the rear view mirror. There are ZERO cracks in the dash. The interior was left original other than a floor tach and 2 pods on the 'a pillar' which show oil pressure and water temperature. An alpine sound system has been added to the glove compartment along with 2 front and 2 rear alpine speakers. 
Motor: 454  big block - original block punched out to a 468 along with a weiland supercharger. The rear main seal does leak a bit, as do all big blocks. Valve cover gaskets replaced along with full MSD tune-up.
Transmission: Turbo 400 3 speed with a 2800 stall - A nice cruiser on the highway doing 55-60mph. The oil pan gasket could stand to be replaced as it leaks a bit. 
12 bolt posi rear end with 373 gears.
Be cool radiator with 2 electric fans - original fan shroud comes with vehicle.
All lights work; all bulbs replaced.
Power steering and power front disk brakes.
Tilt steering.
Horn and wipers do not operate - perhaps a fuse issue.
Cowl fiberglass hood. 
2 1/2 exhaust from collectors back - you can hear this vehicle a mile away - It is VERY VERY loud!!
This is my 4th 1st generation Monte. It took me over a year to find it. Fortunately for my family and I, a business opportunity has come our way that we cannot pass by. Unfortunately, here I am listing my car but anyone looking for this SS is someone who has love for these cars and I'm sure will go to a great home!!!
I have a right to end the auction at any time as the vehicle is listed here locally in Chicago,IL.
Upon full paypal payment, allow 7-10 business days to arrange shipping.
I have a car note on it and I would need that time to receive the title from the bank.
Vehicle is to be purchased by its new owner as is. There is no guarantee or warranty on the vehicle. 
All information I provided above shows the vehicle details along with all its faults. 
Thank you kindly, in advance.
Pictures were taken professionally by Chicago Auto Center in Bensenville, IL where I originally purchased the vehicle. I figured they would do the car true justice vs the camera on my iPhone.

GM recalling over 40,000 Chevy, Pontiac and Saturn models over fuel pump woes

Mon, 01 Oct 2012

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.

Experimental mid-engine XP-819 Corvette going up for auction

Sun, 17 Feb 2013

It seems to be commonplace that when a new Corvette is in development, rumors swirl about a possible mid-engine layout. As is the case of Chevy's most recent C7 Corvette, these rumors never pan out.
In any case, the idea for a 'Vette with an engine mounted behind the driver can probably all be traced back to a single car, the 1964 XP-819 prototype. Built as an "engineering exercise" back in 1964, the prototype was designed with a rear-mounted engine. History tells us that the idea of a rear-engine Corvette fizzled, and the XP-819 was eventually cut up into pieces and stored at a shop in Daytona Beach, FL.
After sitting for untold years, a restoration project started on the car, and while it isn't yet fully completed, the current owner of the car, Mid America Motorworks, will have the car on display at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance as a "driveable chassis" with hopes of having a fully completed car ready to bring to next year's show.

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]

Tue, 05 Feb 2013

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
