Purchased new by C.H. Browne in the fall of 1946 to celebrate his sons return from WW II and to help out on the farm. The Chevy became one of the family as C.H. was hardly without it whether he was working in the fields around Lakin Kansas or going to Garden for supplies. But before long another addition to the family a grandson Chuck.

Grandpa passed in 1963 and the family truck was auctioned off at an estate sale purchased by Don Neff a neighbor it sat for the next 40 years. In 2007 the Neff's called and the truck once again was part of the family....I know the story well I'm the Grandson that rode almost every day in that truck next to my Grandfather. Today the 1946 is built to run at today's highway speeds safely. LT1, 4L60E stock induction, ignition and manifolds. 2.50 SS exhaust. Stock rear with 3.42's  from a Ford Explorer. Fatman front and rear 4 link. 4 wheel disc brakes Stockton steelies and Coker Classic 600R16 front 7.50R16 rear. Stainless fuel tank, frame is boxed and C notched. Power rack and pinion vintage air.
Paint and Bodywork by: GM and Nature. REAL Patina.  Seats stock covered in distressed leather.
One of the coolest hot rods around and built to run.  Read a great article written by Grant Petterson in Classic Trucks April 2008 called Chevy Sabbatical. This has served several times as my daily driver and now it can be yours.....

Chevrolet Malibu gets across-the-board price cuts, hopes to dig out of slump

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 16:33:00 EST

To say that things aren't going well for the newly redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is a pretty sizable understatement. Reports have been swirling about the Malibu getting an emergency design refresh, less than a year after its introduction, as well as having its production at the Fairfax Assembly Plant halted twice already this year for excessive inventory. Now, Motor Trend is reporting that the midsize sedan will be receiving price drops across the board ranging from $300 on a number of models up to $770 on the 1LT trim; offsetting some of MSRP drop, though, the destination charge has increased from $760 to $810.
Without destination, the entry-level Malibu LS now starts at $21,995, which is still about $300 more than a Honda Accord and about $300 less than the segment's top-selling Toyota Camry. This new pricing also drops the price of the Eco, 2LT and 3LT trims by $300. The LTZ trim has dropped by $415, meaning that the Malibu's top dog now starts at just under $30,000, excluding destination.
Here are the new starting prices for all eight of the Malibu trim levels compared to the previous prices for the 2013 model year (including destination):

Callaway debuts its new C7 Stingray at National Corvette Museum

Fri, 02 May 2014 14:16:00 EST

Callaway showed off its first tuned version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum last week, giving the rampant enthusiasts of America's sports car a look at the roughly 620-horsepower, supercharged rocket.
Unlike the Corvette SC610 we showed you back in January, this Stingray packs a fair bit more oomph. Horsepower is only up ten ponies, but torque has jumped from 556 pound-feet to "at least" 600 pound-feet. Neither horsepower nor torque is official quite yet, although Callaway is expecting to know just what its creation can do once testing and validation is completed later this month.
The 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 now boasts a new, three-element intercooler, which Callaway claims only allowed the inlet air temperature to increase by ten degrees Fahrenheit during dyno runs. Previous designs saw a 35-degree-Fahrenheit jump. The exhaust system has also been fettled with, and now is even less restrictive.

UAW to vote on strike at Kentucky Corvette plant

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 13:58:00 EST

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."
