Chevrolet Monte Carlo Base Model on 2040-cars
Milton Freewater, Oregon, United States
This beautiful 1970 Monte Carlo has been assembled over the course of several years, with much attention to detail and built to be driven on a regular basis. The body is free of squeaks and rattles, the window glass is adjusted so there is virtually no wind noise while driving, and the alignment allows fantastic handling with zero tire wear. The cowl hood is all steel with a reinforcement along both sides, full length, and a support bracket to eliminate the flutter along the top edge of the opening associated with high speed when drag racing. The tires are all perfectly balanced so there is no vibrations at or above freeway speeds. There is zero curb rash on any of the wheels. The interior is incredibly comfortable with an extra 1/2" layer of high density foam backing built into the upholstery. The front seat back frames were modified to eliminate the headrest, without simply removing them and laying the fabric over the top of the opening. The seat belts are custom made with aircraft style buckles, DOT approved, and color match is spot on. The beauty has the look and the sound to turn heads wherever you go, and it will run consistent at the track on pump 91 octane fuel run after run with absolutely no issues. The motor had a very recent tune up with new spark plugs, new plug wires custom fit to run under the headers and across the back of the motor, to the HEI distributor with MSD 6AL spark box. This unit has a rev limiter featured as well. The transmission is a TH350 with a Hughes torque converter and a Hughes deep cast aluminum pan as well. The pan has a drain plug, but the fluid and filter are changed regularly. The rear axle is a BOP 10 bolt, with 3.73:1 gears on an Auburn posi unit. It hooks up straight and makes no noise. The gears are very quiet as are the bearings. Wheels are 15 X 8 in the rear, 15 X 3.5 front. Tires are Mickey Thompson 295-65-15 and Firestone 215-75-15. Both sets have more than 70% tread remaining.

Where else would you expect the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to show up first? Although this time it isn't exactly in Jay Leno's Garage, Leno instead playing an away game at Brown's Classic Auto in Scottsdale, Arizona. Nor does Leno drive the car, instead taking an 11-minute walkaround of the new American sports car with General Motors design head Ed Welburn, the same man who recently brought by a string of classic Corvettes to the talk show host's California compound.
It is, admittedly, a love-fest for the American sports car now featuring 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, but one that also features admissions about previous Corvette seats like "they were kinda rough," and the explanation that labeling the coupe "Stingray" means not having to call it "the base Corvette." On top of that, Welburn also explains the proper application of the term "dashboard." You can watch it all in the video below.
According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.
