Early Triple Black 1970 LS3 Big Block Monte Carlo

Just in time for summer cruising with only 60+ miles on a two year intensive frame on restoration.

1970 was the first year for the Monte Carlo, only a little over 7,000 Montes built in 1970 came with the 402 CID LS3 Turbo Jet big block 330 hp motor.

Factory options include: Power steering, power front disc rear drum brakes, tilt wheel, AM-FM Stereo, full gauge dash and very cold A/C.

The car also has a Halo vinyl top. The halo vinyl top stops short of the top of the windshield, only the early to mid 1970 Montes  had this.  It was changed midyear so the top comes all the way to the windshield. 

The motor has been completely rebuilt and some mild power upgrades have also been added.  It's also been detailed out very nicely.

Power is fed through the original Turbo Hydromatic 400 automatic transmission to a factory original 12 bolt Positraction 3.31:1 rear differential.

The body is rust free and laser straight, it was completely stripped to bare metal.  The passenger rear quarter was replaced due to a very poorly done past repair.  After weeks of massaging the body to assure it was perfectly straight, new black basecoat/clearcoat paint was applied.  It is just absolutely stunning.

The gaps are perfect all the way around and the doors open and close perfectly. 

All the stainless trim was straightened and days were spent highly polishing them to a mirror finish.  New lower rocker molding, lower body moldings and wheel opening trim were installed.  In addition new door handles, new rear bumper and all new weather strip.

New tinted windshield, door glass, back glass, drivers quarter glass, window felts and rubber seals.

The factory A/C has been completely rebuilt and blows very cold air.  New compressor, hoses, dryer, condenser and expansion valve.  The POA valve was also calibrated for use with R134.  Also under hood is a new wiper/washer motor, washer fluid bottle, battery and new inner fenders.

Five new 15x8 rally wheels, beauty rings and center caps with Goodyear tires.  Factory bumper jack properly mounted in the restored trunk.

The interior was restored with new upholstery, and cushions on the front and rear seats.  New front seat backs and trim.   New carpet and sound deadener.  New sill plates.  New door panels, rear side panels, headliner, dome lamp and sail panels. New front and rear speakers and package tray.  All the door handles, window cranks, rear view mirrors, hanger hooks, arm rest pads and lock knobs are new.  New brake pedal pad and accelerator pedal.

The dash pad was restored, the dash was removed from the car, cleaned detailed and reinstalled.  The dash has full gauges and even a working clock!

The front suspension and steering have been restored including a new drag link and shock absorbers along with a fresh alignment.  Rear shock were also installed.  All the bumper brackets were sandblasted and painted.

The grill is the original and has some flaws.

These cars have been called a bankers hot rod or a Chevelle with a tuxedo. 

She starts every time and drives perfectly.  She is very civilized and comfortable for cruising but will step up and be a brute when demanded!  This car is just a whole lot of fun!

I strongly urge you to come inspect this beauty, you will not be disappointed.  Contact me with any questions and I will respond as quickly as possible.

Chevy Sonic shreds like a skateboard

Tue, 19 Mar 2013

Despite the fact that the 2013 Chevy Sonic is a fun, plucky little thing - especially in ever-so-slightly hotter RS guise - it is not, in fact, a skateboard. But don't tell that to rapper Theophilus London.
In General Motors' latest spot for the Chevrolet compact, London needs to make a quick run to the store for some milk. And even though, once again, the Sonic is not a skateboard, it ollies, pops and gets air because, you know, it's just so much fun to throw around.
If this video looks familiar to you, it's because this is the full ad that we first got a preview of in Chevy's longer, full-line spot, where the brand's "Find New Roads" tagline was introduced. Scroll down to see this dedicated Sonic spot, along with the older ad, and remember, the Sonic is still - still - not a skateboard.

General Motors shaking up its marketing... again

Wed, 13 Mar 2013

One of the things that dogs the full comeback of General Motors is the instability of its marketing. That part of the automaker got yet another big shakeup today when GM confirmed what I have been tweeting for a few days - strong rumors that the Chevrolet and Cadillac ad accounts are walking to new ad agencies.
Cadillac, GM's luxury brand, is going into review from Fallon Worldwide, Minneapolis and the indications are that Campbell-Ewald, Chevy's old ad shop, will end up with most or all of it. C-E just announced that it was moving from its long-time home in Warren, MI to a new downtown Detroit office next to Ford Field, just blocks from GM.
The other shoe to drop shortly will be the shift of GM's most important brand, Chevy, from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners of San Francisco to McCann-Erickson of Troy, MI. McCann used to be the agency for Buick and GMC, as well as GM's corporate advertising, and has retained some pieces of business over the last few years. Sources have even told us that it was McCann that did a lot of the creative work on Chevy's new ad platform, Find New Roads. (Not to be confused with a former McCann tagline for Saab, "Find Your Own Road.")

Chevy to show redesigned Captiva in Geneva, will it come to US rental lots?

Wed, 27 Feb 2013

Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.
Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.
