Up for auction in a 1975 Chevy Nova two door sedan. The car started out as a base Nova with a 250 cu in. straight six and a three speed on the column manual transmission.
Paint and Body
The car was taken completely apart, sanded down to bare metal, one rear quarter panel replaced, a fin on the trunk added, out of sheetmetal, the lower quarter panel ends and fender fronts were fabricated out of sheetmetal instead of the factory rubber pieces, a custom console built, and the front and rear bumpers were narrowed and tucked in. All of the parts and the body were primed inside and out with House Of Kolor direct to metal epoxy and then primed over with HOK high build epoxy. The car got six coats of primer, block sanding between every coat, until super straight. Then the Nova was sprayed with four coats of white HOK sealer, six coats of HOK Tangerine Kandy, and finally six coats of HOK clear. The white sealer under the tangerine gave the car a jet stream effect where it changes appearance from the jet stream effect to a different kandy color. The stripes were blacked out and sprayed with HOK Marbilizer. It is one of a kind. It has a few small flaws in the paint but nothing serious, I can't get them to show in the pics. The whole car was color sanded and buffed. The inside and the bottom was sprayed with truck bed liner. The inside was then covered in sound deadening Fat Mat. The car was lowered 2" with drop spindles in front and blocks in back. I added subframe connectors and traction bars. All body mounts and front end suspension bushing were replaced. The rear end has a posi unit with Yukon 3.90 gears and a chrome cover. The chrome parts were all re-chromed including the bumpers, tail light frames, and the A/C compressor brackets.
Engine and Transmission
The engine is a 350 cast in 1975. It was taken to a very repritable machine shop, bored to 4.060 align honed, decked, and balanced. The parts added were an Eagle stroker crank, Eagle rods, TRW flat top coated skirt pistons, Clevite 77 main and rod bearings, Comp Cams 292 cam with a .510 lift, Comp lifters and pushrods, Trick Flow aluminum heads with 2.02 and 1.6 valves, Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, Headman 1 5/8 headers with new exhaust and chrome tips, Demon 650 street demon carb, Holley chrome mechanical fuel pump, MSD 6a ignition box, MSD HEI distributor and 8.5 mm plug wires, March performance underdrive serpentine pulleys, Three row radiator with dual electric 12" Flex-a-lite fans, Milodon seven quart oil pan, Chrome Chevrolet valve covers and air cleaner and timing chain cover. The tranny is a built 700R4 with a shift kit, a cooler and a B&M chrome deep oil pan.
The Interior is all brand new or redone to like new specs. It has new bucket seats, carpet, headliner, sunvisors, rearview mirror, new front windshield, hardware, gauges, and Nova floormats. The sound system consists of three 5 1/2 pioneers up front, two 6 x 9's in the rear package tray, two 1" MTX tweeters on front pillars with a pioneer deck that has usb and plays mp3's. The mid's and tweets are powered by a JLAudio 400W amp and one MTX 10" sub in the trunk powered by a Memphis 1000W amp in a custom made box. New complete wiring harness and a new heat and air kit from NAP.
New chrome master cylinder, brake lines, shoes and pads, all rear components and hubs.
I have put a lot of time and money into this car and know that I will probably be taking a loss. I am trying to sell it locally also so, I reserve the right to end the auction early and at any time. I have a clear AR title, I will assist in shipping if needed and will only meet within 50 miles to the winning bidder. I'm sure I've left something out so feel free to contact me with ?'s. Thanks for looking and BID TO WIN....no trades. Inspections are very welcome, I will meet any interested parties at a covenant location. I will ship the car at the buyers expense.

For a concept car built to promote an animated movie about a snail that wants to go racing, this thing ain't half bad. The outsized monster you see before you started life as a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and then went through a big-time Hollywood makeover before being positioned on the Chevrolet stand here in Chicago.

This 2013 "Turbo" Camaro Coupe is getting the promotion machine ratcheted up for a new DreamWorks tale by the name of, you guessed it, Turbo. Coming this summer, the movie will follow one snail's quest to become a race driver worthy of making the cut at the Indy 500. Like many DreamWorks vehicles before it, we're guessing that the petrolhead snail will star in a movie that adults (especially racing fans) with have no trouble watching with their kids. Check out the trailer below to see if you agree.
As for the car, we're told that it is "instrumental" in transforming Turbo from snail into racer. Helping the beastly pony car in this mighty task, is an ankle-cracking front splitter matched by a ungodly huge rear wing out back, a COPO hood and a supercharged (yes, supercharged) V8 engine making more than 700 horsepower. 24-inch wheels all the way around - 10-inches wide in front and 15-inches wide in back - should allow the "Turbo" Camaro to hook up with ease, as well.
Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.

Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.
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.
