I have my Very Rare optioned 1968 Factory Sequoia Green/Black Vinyl Top/Black Interior Camaro Project for sale! This car is a Factory V8/Manual transmission car. Only 2.5% of the 235,147 1968 Camaros that were made were this very rare and desirable color. It is a project car and there is no motor or transmission. Car is currently stripped to bare metal as it was just dustless not too long ago. The car has the typical rust areas these cars typically have (floors, 1/4 panels, passenger side outer rocker panel and small areas of the front and rear window channels). However the entire trunk area is very solid! including the trunk pan/trunk drop off panels! The car will come with a lot of new parts/new sheetmetal. The factory doors are in very good condition with only minor rust repair patching that will need to be done. All of the factory trim, emblems, grille assemb., seats, console, steering column, heat/vent stuff, ALL the glass, taillights, factory suspension, and boxes full of parts are all included. Car omes with factory flat hood in primer and also the steel cowl induction hood. Factory trunk lid also included and is in excellent condition. Factory Subframe has been sandblasted and painted with black frame paint. Car has the mono-leaf spring 10bolt rearend. Car is a PROJECT and will need some work. Almost all the parts are there except the Motor and Transmission! For more info/questions/details please contact me as it would be easier to discuss or go over the car over the phone. This would be an excellent starting point for someone for a full restoration. All the panels on the car appear to be the original ones. The car was not a cut up,hacked up drag car or anything like that. The car is a very solid starting point for a full restoration. From what I can tell it will need floor pans, minor window channel patching/replacing, upper dash panel (patch or replace might be easier), passenger side outer rocker panel (might just need a patch), both quarter panels, and rear deck filler panel replaced. These are almost all the typical areas that need replaced on these cars. Car comes with a set of 15" factory ralley wheels/ This is my dream car and I would love to keep at it and finish it, however I do not have the time or funds right now to do so. If it does not sell I will keep it and build it, it will just take a lot longer time frame than I had hoped for. I strongly suggest anyone interested in this project car give me a call or contact me as there is a lot of details and a lot of things I'm sure I am forgetting to mention on here. TONS of parts come with the car, I am sure I am missing a couple things here and there so be sure to ask if you have any questions. Floor pan was not dustless blasted, as I planned on replacing it anyways.

Both rear outer wheelhousings (do not need to be replaced as the ones on the car are very SOLID!)

To discuss anything about the car or what all is there I strongly suggest you call me at 785-737-6209 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can answer any questions or concerns you may have. There are a ton of parts here and a great starting point for a full restoration.

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!"
Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.

The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.
Chevrolet is following up the 2012 COPO Camaro with another limited run of the drag-strip-ready production car for 2013. Ditching the superchargers, the 2013 COPO Camaro can only be equipped with one of three naturally aspirated V8 engines, and other new features include the option of a manual transmission, new front springs, some minor styling changes and a lower starting price of $86,000. All cars are designed to abide by the rules of the NHRA's Stock Eliminator or Super Stock classifications, depending on in which series buyers wish to enter their Chevrolet Camaro.
Returning for 2013 is the 427-cubic-inch V8 producing 425 horsepower, but the new engines include a 325-hp 350-CID V8 and a 375-hp 396-CID V8. Buyers can select to purchase all three engines, and each will be matched with the sequence number of that car; the track-only COPO cars will not have vehicle identification numbers and can't be registered for street use.
Chevrolet is also offering unique enthusiast-specific options such as a COPO Build Book and the opportunity for owners to help assemble their car's engine at the Chevrolet Performance Build Center in Wixom, MI.
