I'm selling my 68 camaro that I bought 8 years ago,in bad shape,some small rust issues in the lower quarter panels ( my body man took care of that ) so I did some research and came to the conclusion that is a ss 396 , this camaro came originanly with the m22 manual trans. this transmission has the speedo cable inlet on the right side so the cable had to came out behind the distributor ( the hole is still there) and a big block 396 but when I got it motor and tranny were long gone, so I put a 396( unknown milage but runs strong ) out off a 70 camaro or chevelle? and a th 400 auto. painted it matador red (code RR ) that is the original color and black houndstooth interior also original in the car, ( code 749 ) I also installed a center console with after market gauges, the car has all polyurethane bushings motor mounts and trans. mount 750 holly street avenger double pumper,preformer rpm intake, a mild came headers, 2 1/2 flowmaster exhaust,lakewood traction bars, stainlees steel gas tank,rallyes 7"s front 8's out back with drag radials, this car drives great with no vibrations or rattleling of any kind, is not a show car just a driver that turns heads everywhere,
I forgot to mention that the car has front disc brakes, 12 bolt rearend, painless wire harness and the trans. was rebuilted a few months ago! all the weatherstrip was replaced, I think that somebody that owned it before me used to race this car it has weld marks on frame from subframe connectors and they trim and patch the rear floor pans (doesn't look bad do) also the nuts that hold a pin down hood are still there, if you have any ?'s you can call me at home 520-5785435 after 4:00 pm tucson time thank's again!
a couple of small issues the car has ,one of the heater control levers broke loose ,the driver rear quarter window needs one of the guide rollers needs to be replaced ( I have it in the glove box I just haven't had time to put it on I'll try this weekend ) ,I drive this car about 6 or 7 times a year, on nice days, it's allways in the garage and covered
I did so much to this car that I keep forgeting! I installed new front fenders, hood ,valance and header panels, grill trunk lid, front and back bumpers,all badges ,front and back windows, one more thing! the car is listed for sale localy so I may end this auction at any time, thank's
As we continue to put together all the data for the year-end edition of By The Numbers, General Motors has announced that it sold more than a million vehicles in the US last year that achieved at least 30 miles per gallon on the highway. More impressively, GM managed this feat using multiple strategies including small vehicle size, turbocharged engines and hybrid or plug-in technologies across four brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC) accounting for 13 separate models. This number will grow even more in 2013 thanks to cars like the all-electric Spark, the diesel Cruze, the range-extended Cadillac ELR and the Buick Encore compact CUV.
GM's small car sales were up 39 percent last year helping to attain this million-sales mark for 30-mpg models, and almost 40 percent of all GM sales consisted of cars with fuel-efficient I4 engines. In regards to more advanced means of improving fuel economy, GM says that it plans on having 500,000 vehicles with "some form of electrification" on the road by 2017.
Scroll down for the full list of GM's million 30+ mpg cars as well as an informative press release.
Full Disclosure: in my younger days, I loved nothing more than tormenting passengers with my behind-the-wheel hijinks. Once, after a particularly artful handbrake turn on a two-lane at around 50 miles per hour, I left one backseat occupant crying in their own lap. This isn't necessarily something to be proud of, but it gives you a glimpse into why it is that I find this ad from Pepsi so damn disappointing. The premise is beautiful. Take NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, give him a disguise and set him loose upon some unsuspecting used car dealer. Hilarity ensues.
Except that this Pepsi Max commercial is so obviously staged, it can't help but feel like some ham-fisted marketing fail. From the strategically placed aftermarket cupholder mounted mid-dash for the hidden camera to the fact that the supposed dealer Camaro is displayed as a 2009 model (Hint: Chevrolet didn't make any), this clip is about as organic as a Twinkie. Still, we would never turn down a chance to watch Gordon thrash on a rental-spec coupe - only problem is, he probably didn't even do the driving himself. Check it out below.
Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.
Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
