For sale is a 1972 Chevrolet El Camino Custom. It runs and drives/breaks great, and Iíve gone through periods where I used it as a primary means of transportation. It sure is an attention getteróI canít even go to the grocery store or gym without several people standing around it as I go to leave, asking questions, etc. Iíll miss it deeply for that reason alone.

The pics were taken outside, but it has been garage kept since day 1.

Itís not perfect. The belt sometimes squeals on start up, but it starts right up, runs and drives great. Itís got a few scratches, cracks, rust, dings etc. but nothing big or very noticeable. The dash seems to be missing some fasteners where the gauge cluster attaches. All the gauges work except for the oil lamp. No A/C or radio installed. While the headlights/taillights and blinkers work perfectly, the lights in the dash (blinker indicators, bulbs that illuminate the gauges at night, etc.) work but not consistently. The previous owner had pulled the A/C control panel out for some reasonóI suppose to replace it (as you can see it sits on the column in the pictures above).

Headlinerís in great shape. One of the seats is in great shape while the other isnítóthus I put the seat covers on both. It has the SS style dash (round gauges) and floor shifter (Hurst V-Matic 2) which I love. Windshield wipers work.

Wheels are in good shape. Lots of work done (on the suspension specifically) which Iíve attached pictures of the receipts to account for.

Model: L48, 350 CID, 4-bbl

Engine: 350 4 bolt mainócasting # 3970014.

Engine ID Code: V0319TJA; Flint, MI Assembly

Vin 1D80J2B568266; Baltimore, MD Assembly

Rear Axle: CKD 0507B2, 2.73:1 Ė 12 Bolt (L48/350-4); Buffalo, NY Assembly

Never had access to a lift in order to identify the transmission type as the only way I know to do that is via the pan shape.

Automakers score 8 out of top 20 most-watched ads on YouTube [w/videos]

Fri, 14 Dec 2012

Who would have ever thought there'd be a day where people are able to skip television commercials only to go to websites to watch them later? Such is the joy of a DVR and YouTube. AdWeek tabulated the 20 most-watched ads on YouTube, and found that nine were car-related including eight coming from automakers.
Volkswagen continued its Star Wars theme with two ads in the top 20, including the highest-ranking car commercial The Bark Side spot at number three with almost 18 million views, which doesn't even have a single car in it. Some of our favorites are from Chrysler with Clint Eastwood in It's Halftime in America and House Arrest with Charlie Sheen for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Chevrolet, Honda, Audi and Toyota were the other automakers in the top 20, but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least mention one of the coolest ads on the list, the Hot Wheels corkscrew jump.
Of all the car videos, only the Fiat ad wasn't played during a Super Bowl. Check out all eight videos - in order - after the jump. Nike took the top spot with its My Time is Now ad that has been seen online more than 20 million times with Pepsi's Uncle Drew posted up in the runner-up; some of the other videos include four Old Spice commercials and an ad in which Snoop Dogg is pedaling Hot Pockets.

Helicopter crashes on Top Gear Korea set while chasing Corvette ZR1

Mon, 11 Feb 2013

The formula of Top Gear Korea is seemingly about the same as it is everywhere else in the world, including the flagship British original: involve interesting cars in fantastical situations with charismatic hosts. That prescription has proved to be pretty reliable over the years, and has lead to some truly memorable and exciting pieces of television.
Something like that was undoubtedly what the Korean producers were after when they lined up this segment - a drag race between a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and an AH1 Cobra military helicopter. The planners almost certainly did not expect the filming of the segment to go quite as wrong as it actually did, with the helicopter actually crashing into the dirt after the "drag race" had been completed. Thankfully, we're told that no one was seriously injured in the crash, but the footage, in the video below, is pretty damn chilling to watch, nevertheless.

Pure Vision Design TT Camaro has 1,400 reasons to want it

Wed, 06 Nov 2013

We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a menacing car it calls the Pure Vision Design TT Camaro. Based on a 1972 model, this car shares the Martini Mustang's clean styling and obsession with details.
Unlike the Mustang, which draws its power from a mid-60s Lotus-Ford Indycar engine, the "TT" in this Camaro's name implies something far more potent. The Nelson Racing Engines 427-cubic-inch V8 has been fitted with a pair of turbochargers, with a claimed output of 1,400 horsepower. That's almost 1,000 more than the Martini Mustang.
A six-speed Magnum transmission dispatches that power to the ground, while Pirelli PZero tires are tasked with (somehow) trying to grip the road. Baer brakes hide behind those HRE rims, while JRI coilovers and HyperTech springs bless the Camaro with some degree of competency in the bends.
