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.

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.
The current wait time for a new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is well, not short. With word of a strike at the Bowling Green, KY factory responsible for seventh-generation sports car, though, that wait time could end up growing substantially.

Now, a strike is still a ways off. UAW Local 2164, which represents the 800 workers responsible for screwing the Corvette together, is set to vote on authorizing a strike today, but even if the employees give the action a go, it's far from a sure thing. According to The Tennessean, both regional and national union officials would need to put their stamp of approval on strike action.
"The membership has to vote to strike, but it's just a step in the process," said Gary Casteel, the UAW's Region 8 director and one of the people that would need to authorize a strike action. Casteel told The Tennessean, "It's purely a local situation, though. They are having some issues with the local management."
They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.
We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.
