1953 Chevrolet 3100 1/2 Ton Pickup

This little looker is a 1953 Chevrolet 3100 custom build restoration. Originally from California the interior and the exterior have been redone with several added features all on the original frame. All new glass. Its painted flat black with wonderful green and creme pin striping that accent the hood, headlights, door handles, dash, and tail gate of the truck. The front bumper is a custom piece, the rear deck below the tailgate has been modified for aesthetics. The wooden bed has been refreshed. The rear fenders are mini-tub in the box to help fit wider tires. The gas tank is a 10 gallon spun aluminum tank that has been relocated to the bed.

It sports a Heidts Mustang II front end with Heidts tubular upper and lower control arms. It has 4 wheel disc brakes, with an S10 Disc rear end. New rubber all around on Southern Mint* painted Chevy rally rims with beauty rings and center caps. It has been fitted with a modern dual compressor air ride suspension system front, back, side to side from AirBagIt. It has 6 Sromberg carburetors that feed a 348 chevy block with 7,400 original miles. The engine was pulled from a 1958 fire truck and all of the accessories were replaced brand new. There is a pair of Sanderson block hugger headers, which flow through a set of flow masters out the rear end. The engine is mated to a rebuilt Turbo 350 3 speed transmission, with a Lokar shifter on the floor. The truck has all new wiring from speedway.

The interior has been completely redone with custom upholstery on the seat, door cards, shifter boot, and visors. It features a beautiful dashboard out of a 1953 Pontiac Chieftain with custom pin stripping on the dash panel. The steering wheel is originally from a 1958 Buick Roadmaster. There has been hundreds of hours and fistful's of money put into this. Fortunately for you, the seasons are changing and its time for me to put the money from this truck into another restoration project.

Chevy Corvette Stingray "colorizer" lets you chase the rainbow

Thu, 14 Feb 2013

After you've convinced your better half to let you buy a new Corvette, then comes the hard part... actually figuring out which 'Vette you want. While Chevrolet has yet to release the official configurator for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, it did give us something else to kill some time playing around with.
The C7 Corvette "colorizer" recently went online, and it lets you look at the car in all of its available colors and wheel options from four different angles so that when this car does go on sale, you know exactly which one you want. It includes the Corvette's full pallet of colors including Torch Red, Laguna Blue and the hue you see above, Velocity Yellow. Toss in the black wheels, and we're sold. If you have some time this afternoon, be sure to check it out the Corvette colorizer for yourself, and even if you don't have the time, we've put together a gallery with all of the possible color combinations.

Why does the Corvette Stingray have so many vents? Here's why

Sun, 27 Jan 2013

Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.
Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
If you have about five minutes and you can't get enough information about the new 'Vette, then check out the videos posted below.

2014 Chevrolet Malibu gets more torque, more room and inspiration from the Impala

Fri, 31 May 2013

The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, having stared at the Impala across the showroom floor for a year, gets nips and tucks all over inspired by its larger brother. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the base car will get a stop-start system and 23 city miles per gallon, 35 highway, each number representing a one-mpg improvement over the 2013 car. Output is 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque.
Opt for the 2.0-liter turbo and, while power holds steady at 259 hp, torque goes up by 14 percent to a striking 295 lb-ft (a figure Chevy calls best in the class). The final details include newly programmed transmission shift points and faster shifts, for better engaging and enjoying the added power.
Looks-wise, the grille's been reshaped to be more in line with the new Chevrolet look, a narrower upper grille hovering over a larger lower grille.
