The car received an off the frame restoration in 2003. Various improvements have been made since, but not all at once. I have driven the car 19,678 miles since the restoration. The transmission is a regular 700R4, not a racing transmission. This is a show car, not a drag car. Pulling the floor shift lever from locked-up overdrive to 3rd gear and stomping the gas pedal to the floor will scare the daylights out of you, your passengers, and whoever is in the car that you are passing. This car weighs less than 2800 pounds and has over 500 horsepower. It is wicked fast. The transmission has 17,242 miles since it was rebuilt, all with a blower. The engine has 7,689 miles since rebuild. It was professionally built by Savannah Racing in Savannah, GA using forged pistons and rods. Compression ratio is 8.5:1. The blower provides 6 pounds of boost. Overall compression is 12.2:1. Use 97 octane gasoline. A Comp cam and roller rockers were installed. The tires have less than 1,000 miles wear. Tires were bought in 2013. The blower has 12,856 miles. Power assist drum brakes front and rear. Vega box manual steering. Frenched-in rear licence plate holder with 3rd brake light. Two extra brake lights under car for added visibility. This car has working wipers, but I've never used them. I put Rain-X on the windows and the car has only been wet 3 times since 2003. I use Windex and cloth baby diapers to clean the paint.The car was dismantled and painted in 2003. 3 coats of PPG Viper Red and 7 coats or PPG clear. The car was wet sanded down to 3000 grit before polishing. It has always been stored indoors with a cover. It has been driven to several hundred cars shows and cruise-ins. It has the usual rock chips, scratches, blisters, and cracks in the paint. People don't notice them at 6 feet, but you can see them all when close enough to wax the car. The floor pans are solid. No dents. There is NO hood. This car has never had a heater. There is plenty of head room despite the 4 inch chopped top. Your friends will hear the blower whine 2 city blocks away. Be prepared to be mobbed when you arrive at the cruise-in. Gas mileage is 12 city and 15 highway at 55 mph. 2100 rpm at 70 mph. Inside exhaust noise is a nice powerful rumble. The engine does not overpower the radio for a night time cruise. This car is not perfect, but it still has plenty of appeal. Georgia is a Bill of Sale state

Pics Aplenty: Meet the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra [w/poll]

Thu, 13 Dec 2012

Today was a pretty big day for General Motors, debuting the all-new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty pickup trucks ahead of their official showcase at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. And now that the dust has settled at GM's big reveal event, we've had a chance to snap dozens of photos of the new pickup pair from every angle.
We already told you the important bits earlier today (click here in case you missed it), but let's recap. Under the hood are three new engines - a 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 (you know, a version of the small-block that'll also be found under the hood of the C7 Corvette), all mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. The 2014 model year marks the return of the Z71 off-road package with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and beefier underbody protection. Inside, there's a host of new technology and a greater focus on better quality and refinement.
Some of the nitty-gritty specifics (like engine output numbers and fuel economy) have yet to be revealed, and since we haven't driven the finished products yet, it's hard to say how these trucks will fare against rivals like the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150. For now, we can only judge these two books by their covers, and while we do like the designs of the new trucks, we Autoblog staffers are torn on exactly which one looks best.

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.

2014 Chevrolet Impala [w/video]

Can A Fleet Queen Become a Fullsize King?
On paper, the Chevrolet Impala is a pretty strong seller, posting annual sales that have hovered right around 170,000 units for the last two years, but it only takes one trip to practically any rental car agency to discover where the majority of those sales have come from. In fact, General Motors told Autoblog that a full 70 percent of Impala sales last year went to fleet companies for things like rental cars and government vehicles. Logic tells us that this is neither good for resale values nor name equity, so Chevrolet is getting ready to roll out an all-new Impala with improved comfort, styling and technology, hoping to turn the tables on its retail-to-fleet ratio.
Chevrolet's sedans have come on quite strong in the last few months with the introduction of the Cruze diesel and the SS sedan, but while these will likely be low-volume sellers, there's more pressure for the new Impala to perform well as GM looks to slash fleet sales and compete with the wide variety of full-size sub-luxury sedans. Riding on a platform shared with the Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac XTS, the 2014 Impala will compete against the Hyundai Azera, Ford Taurus and Toyota Avalon on the more traditional side, while also looking to take a bite out of somewhat sportier models like the Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger twins and the Nissan Maxima. We headed to sunny San Diego to see if this totally new Impala can stand on its own without the assistance of fleet companies and rental agencies. [w/video
