 1968 Chevelle Malibu; 90% restored; all this car needs is some finishing to be a great street rod - that was my goal, but ran out of time. Someone will have a blast in this car - I wish it was me.

Anyway, I purchased the body/frame - there was some rust around the windshield and trunk lip I had a body shop repair. Frame is in fine shape; no rust on the car now. I had it painted satin black to give it a mild rat rod look. Mechanically, I purchased a 327 and rebuilt the bottom end; it has some very mild cam other than stock in it, I believe; heads from a Camaro are sitting on top; Edelbrock Victor, Jr. intake, Edelbrock 1406 carb; new electric cooling fan; new fuel line; headers; almost new Flowmaster dual exhaust; Turbo 350 transmission. New Cragar SS wheels with new BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. The car is an A/C car, and it could certainly be again. I was going for the left arm tan vibe.

The electrical system was completely rebuilt front to back by a Chevelle guy in town.

Regarding the interior, the dash is in great shape; the front seats are new - mechanical reclining seats; back seat is in ok shape, but needs to be recovered. New carpet, reproduction door panels, door handles, arm rests. There is good sound insulation under the carpet and in the trunk, too. The shifter is a custom billet aluminum ratchet shifter some made for me - it looks boss and really sets the car off. I initially had a custom fiberglass console in there with standard gauges (temp, oil pressure, alt), but decided it was too much. The subs and amp in the trunk were coupled with a stereo that was mounted in the console; I never got around to moving the stereo into the dash. I have no use for them, so they stay with the car.

As I stated, someone will have a great street rod with a minimum of work - wish it was me. It has a nice, throaty idle. I only drove it a couple of times after the engine was rebuilt - it may have 3 or 4 miles on the rebuilt engine. The brakes are spongy; it probably needs a master cylinder. You would not want to fly in and drive this car to your home, in my opinion. It also needs shocks. For someone that had a little bit of mechanical knowledge or someone that wanted to learn a little, you can get in this car cheap and have a hell of a nice antique street rod.

Watch this creative way to pull a truck's engine

Fri, 08 Mar 2013 16:58:00 EST

Living in an apartment complex has its benefits, but for shade-tree mechanics who like/need to work on their own cars, it definitely has a number of disadvantages. Relatively simple tasks such as brake jobs and oil changes are difficult when you don't have dedicated driveway space, to say nothing of more in-depth repairs... like pulling an engine, for example.
For these types of challenges, a little ingenuity and plenty of muscle are needed to get the job done. Scroll down to watch these four men snatch the V8 out of a Chevrolet K1500 using nothing but a chain, landscape timber and good ol' fashioned brute strength. Good work, gentlemen.

GM won't sell 2014 Chevrolet SS in Canada

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 11:01:00 EST

Allow us to be the first to extend our condolences to our friends to the north. General Motors has announced the 2014 Chevrolet SS will not be available in Canada. The Globe and Mail reports the automaker has confirmed the high-performance sedan won't hit Canadian dealers, though GM hasn't offered up any reasoning as to why that is.
Buyers here in the US of A, meanwhile, can look forward to getting their hands on the 415-horspower, rear-wheel drive SS by late summer. Something tells us it won't be long after that before Canadian officials start seeing individually imported 6.2-liter V8 four-doors in their neighborhoods. Fortunately, Canadian buyers will still be able to take home the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. The C7 bowed at the Canadian International Auto Show last week, reportedly drawing sizable crowds and interest.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra debut all-new designs, three new engines

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 10:49:00 EST

General Motors has finally dropped the curtain on the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra. Both trucks have undergone substantial revisions with updated versions of the company's 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 engines. In a shot across the bows of both Ford and Chrysler, GM says it won't use a V6 engine adapted from passenger car applications. Instead, it developed the 4.3-liter engine based on its proven truck-duty architecture.
All three mills will boast direct injection fuel systems as well as a new cylinder head design. Combined with a revised piston, the new engines feature a smaller combustion chamber with a compression ratio of 11:1 or higher depending on the application. Cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing are all part of the recipe, and each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with auto grade breaking. So far, no fuel economy or horsepower figures have been released, though GM says the new engines will best their predecessors in both areas.
Outside, the trucks feature a number of enhancements to reduce drag and wind noise, and GM claims both the Silverado and Sierra will offer buyers some of the quietest cabins in the class. Extended cab models now feature front-hinged rear doors to allow easier access to the back passenger area, and Crew Cab buyers can now select between a five-foot, eight-inch bed or a six-foot, six-inch bed. Buyers with a mind toward going off road will also rejoice in the return of the Z71 package, complete with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and additional under-body protection.
