For sale is a real 1970 Chevelle SS 396 4 speed with a positraction rear and Cowl Induction. This is a GM of Canada
built Super Sport and it comes with the supporting documents from Canada. This car has recently undergone a pretty
intensive frame on restoration. The original "Born with engine and transmission are still in the car" the rear is
not original to the car but it is a posi.
The engine has been recently rebuilt and has very few miles on it, besides the original block, it also has its'
original date coded heads and intake. The alternator is also original. The engine was removed and the engine
compartment detailed. It has all new front harnesses, brake booster, 4 core radiator, valve covers, battery,
exhaust manifolds and new date coded wires. The steering shaft was disassembled and restored, new power steering
lines and the engine repainted. The front frame rails were stripped down and repainted as was the radiator core
support. All the front end linkage has been disassembled, blasted and repainted. The car also power steering and
power brakes. There is also a brand new Dual Friction Centerforce clutch in the car.
The interior is in decent driver condition, it has had a new headliner, new carpet and sill plates installed. It is
also a tach and gauge car. The seat coverings are in nice shape, no rips or tears.
The trunk has been stripped and refinished with original style jack and spare.
I've included 2 pictures of the floors in the listing, the floors are perhaps the nicest originals I've ever seen.
They were coated in heavy duty grease when I got the car. After 15 hours of cleaning the grease as you can see in
the pictures they are in mint condition with the factory body plugs still intact.
The body on the car is very nice, I would rate the paint as above average driver quality and the stripes are
correct. The only change from the GM of Canada paperwork is this car has had a color change. All the original date
coded glass is still in the car except the windshield. The original color was Misty Turquoise. The SS rims were
blasted, etching primed and repainted, the exhaust system is new with the rear resonators. The gas tank has also
been replaced and the original SS bumper is still on the car. The car can be seen by appointment.

The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.
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):
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.
Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?
