DUE TO FAMILY NEEDS, AND HE WAS NOT ABLE TO TAKE THIS BEAUTY WITH HIM. HE HAS OWNED THIS TRUCK SINCE NEW AND IT HAS NEVER SEEN RAIN/BAD WEATHER! IT WAS COMPLETELY GONE THROUGH AND UPDATED APPROX 5 YEARS AGO BY A VERY REPUTABLE SHOP IN THE S.F. BAY AREA WHERE IT WAS FITTED WITH A BRAND NEW 540 CI MERLIN BLOCK, WORLD HEADS AND MANY HIGH PERFORMANCE ENGINE PARTS.IT ALSO WAS FITTED WITH TH400 AND MATED TO A GEAR VENDORS AUTO O/D UNIT SO IT HAS POTENTIALLY 6 SPEEDS, OR WILL SHIFT 1-4 AUTOMATICALLY.

THIS LITTLE BEAUTY IS A SUPER COOL LITTLE HAULER AND GETS ATTENTION WHEREVER IT GOES. MY INVOLVEMENT IN THIS RIG CAME TO PLAY BECAUSE THE ENGINE AS ORIGINALLY BUILT HAD SOME OIL LEAK ISSUES WHICH THE OWNER WOULD NOT TOLERATE, SO HE BROUGHT IT TO MY SHOP WHERE WE REMOVED THE ENGINE AND WENT BACK THROUGH IT COMPLETELY, UPGRADING THE CAM TO A SLIGHTLY MORE AGGRESSIVE COMP CAM & KIT, EDELBROCK PERFORMER MANIFOLD /750 CARB AND MSD IGNITION. THIS TRUCK WAS AN ORIGINAL BIG BLOCK AND WELL FACTORY-OPTIONED RIG AND HAS BEEN VERY WELL CARED FOR SINCE NEW. THE SPEEDO REFLECTS THE ACTUAL MILEAGE(2000) SINCE THE UPGRADES WERE DONE IN SF. , SO THIS LITTLE BEAUTY IS READY FOR SOME SERIOUS CRUISING.IT RUNS & SOUNDS AWESOME AND WILL MAKE SOME LUCKY BIDDER VERY HAPPY.SALE ALSO INCLUDES FULL TONNEAU COVER AND A/C WORKS GREAT!!

Chevrolet SS previewed by Holden VF Commodore SS V show car

Thu, 14 Feb 2013

It won't be long before we see the official, production-ready Chevrolet SS sedan (hint: it will be revealed this weekend). And to tide us over until all of the official details are released about the US-spec version, we have this: the Holden VF Commodore SS V show car, a performance-oriented brother to the Calais V that debuted earlier in the week.
What we really want to know about the SS V is what lies underhood, but General Motors' Australian arm is keeping that under wraps until the Chevy model breaks cover this weekend. Nevertheless, it's obvious that the SS V will be a serious performer, with all sorts of aggressive cues driving that home on the car's exterior. Take a look at those 20-inch billet aluminum wheels that hide big Brembo brake calipers up front, the sculpted hood and front fascia, the wide air intakes with LED running lights and the quad exhaust pipes out back. It's like the Pontiac G8 GXP never even left us.
Inside, there's a sporty-looking interior with aluminum accents that mix in with black leather and suede surfaces, all tied together in the middle with an eight-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. It looks great, and again, while we don't know anything regarding powertrain details, it makes us oh-so happy to see a manual shifter smack dab in the middle of the center console.

Watch this time-lapse build of the Chevy SS for NASCAR

Fri, 08 Feb 2013

There's only about a week left until we get our first look at the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan, but Chevrolet NASCAR teams have been looking at the race version of the car all winter. Autoweek has posted a really neat time-lapse video showing just a portion of what it takes to build one of NASCAR's new Gen6 stock cars.
Though the video is quite brief, it does show almost the entire build process starting with just the car's nose, and it gives us a good look at how integral the template is to the final product. As a bonus, Hendrick Motorsports also provided some videos showing two of its teams performing pit stop tests over the winter. The second video shows some of the more detailed aspects of the racecar's rear end, including the stock-looking trunk cutout and a newly mandated rear bumper extension that will be used on super speedways like Daytona and Talladega.
To see what Team Chevy has been up to all off-season, check out all three videos posted after the jump.

Why the Corvette's Performance Data Recorder can be illegal in some states

Fri, 26 Sep 2014

The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.
