1964 Chevrolet Impala on 2040-cars
Lupton City, Tennessee, United States
1964 IMPALA TRUE SS 409-425HP CHEVROLET.
NOTHING WAS OVERLOOKED WITH THE ROTISSERIE NUT AND BOLT RESTORATION. THE PPG BASE CLEAR COAT IS SHOW QUALITY, THE
ORIGINAL STYLE BUCKET SEAT/CONSOLE INTERIOR ARE NEW, THE ENGINE AND DRIVE TRAIN ARE FRESH, AND UNDERNEATH THE CAR
IS GORGIOUS. TRULY A SHOW CAR THAT IS FUN TO DRIVE.
I BOUGHT THIS CAR AS A NUMBERS MATCHING 409-425HP CAR. THE BLOCK CASTING NUMBER IS CORRECT FOR A LATE PRODUCTION
64 AND ALL 65 409'S (3857656). THE TWO CARBS HAVE THE CORRECT NUMBERS (NO.1 3815403 NO.2 /REAR 3856580) AS WELL
AS THE INTAKE (3814881). THE EXHAUST MANIFOLDS APPEAR CORRECT AND THE ENGINE IS STAMPED (TO 523 QP) WHICH
INDICATES 1964 PASSENGER CAR 409-425HP, 2-4 BBLS, MANUAL TRANSMISSION WITH TRANSISTER IGNITION.
BUT IN THE ABUNDENCE OF CAUTION AND BECAUSE I CANNOT VERIFY DATE CODES NOR DO I HAVE A BUILD SHEET OR WINDOW
STICKER, I AM SELLING THE CAR AS A PERIOD CORRECT 409-425HP ENGINE. IT DOES HAVE THE SOLID LIFT CAM AND IT
PERFORMES GREAT AND EITHER WAY, IT IS SUPER RARE.
THE IMPALA WAS ENHANCED WITH FOUR WHEEL POWER DISC BRAKES, IDIDIT TILT STEERING COLUMN, OVERSIZED EXHAUST
SYSTEM , HURST SHIFTER AND HAS FACTORY POWER STEERING AND FACTORY TACH.
THE CAR IS VERY SOLID AND DEPENDABLE WITH UNBELIVEABLE ATTENTION TO DETAIL.

For a concept car built to promote an animated movie about a snail that wants to go racing, this thing ain't half bad. The outsized monster you see before you started life as a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and then went through a big-time Hollywood makeover before being positioned on the Chevrolet stand here in Chicago.
This 2013 "Turbo" Camaro Coupe is getting the promotion machine ratcheted up for a new DreamWorks tale by the name of, you guessed it, Turbo. Coming this summer, the movie will follow one snail's quest to become a race driver worthy of making the cut at the Indy 500. Like many DreamWorks vehicles before it, we're guessing that the petrolhead snail will star in a movie that adults (especially racing fans) with have no trouble watching with their kids. Check out the trailer below to see if you agree.
As for the car, we're told that it is "instrumental" in transforming Turbo from snail into racer. Helping the beastly pony car in this mighty task, is an ankle-cracking front splitter matched by a ungodly huge rear wing out back, a COPO hood and a supercharged (yes, supercharged) V8 engine making more than 700 horsepower. 24-inch wheels all the way around - 10-inches wide in front and 15-inches wide in back - should allow the "Turbo" Camaro to hook up with ease, as well.

The Poncho is dead. Long live the Poncho. Like certain other reoccurring personal maladies, the aftermarket community simply can't let the Trans Am go without another flare up. The guys at Trans Am Depot have worked up a quick commercial for their newest creation: The 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition, and it watches pretty much like you'd expect it to. The footage is comprised of just about every TA male fantasy you can conceive of, from Daisy Dukes and white tank tops to tramp stamps, bikinis and ice cream cones. There simply aren't words for what you'll see below.
Of course, we like our T-Tops as much as the next guy. If you like what you see in the videos, you can pick up your very own TA by heading over to the Trans Am Depot site. The guys even have Chevrolet Camaro-based versions of the Pontiac GTO if the '77 TA treatment is too much for your tastes. Enjoy, but don't say we didn't warn you.
For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.
What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"
