Up for auction in a 1975 Chevy Nova two door sedan. The car started out as a base Nova with a 250 cu in. straight six and a three speed on the column manual transmission.
Paint and Body
The car was taken completely apart, sanded down to bare metal, one rear quarter panel replaced, a fin on the trunk added, out of sheetmetal, the lower quarter panel ends and fender fronts were fabricated out of sheetmetal instead of the factory rubber pieces, a custom console built, and the front and rear bumpers were narrowed and tucked in. All of the parts and the body were primed inside and out with House Of Kolor direct to metal epoxy and then primed over with HOK high build epoxy. The car got six coats of primer, block sanding between every coat, until super straight. Then the Nova was sprayed with four coats of white HOK sealer, six coats of HOK Tangerine Kandy, and finally six coats of HOK clear. The white sealer under the tangerine gave the car a jet stream effect where it changes appearance from the jet stream effect to a different kandy color. The stripes were blacked out and sprayed with HOK Marbilizer. It is one of a kind. It has a few small flaws in the paint but nothing serious, I can't get them to show in the pics. The whole car was color sanded and buffed. The inside and the bottom was sprayed with truck bed liner. The inside was then covered in sound deadening Fat Mat. The car was lowered 2" with drop spindles in front and blocks in back. I added subframe connectors and traction bars. All body mounts and front end suspension bushing were replaced. The rear end has a posi unit with Yukon 3.90 gears and a chrome cover. The chrome parts were all re-chromed including the bumpers, tail light frames, and the A/C compressor brackets.
Engine and Transmission
The engine is a 350 cast in 1975. It was taken to a very repritable machine shop, bored to 4.060 align honed, decked, and balanced. The parts added were an Eagle stroker crank, Eagle rods, TRW flat top coated skirt pistons, Clevite 77 main and rod bearings, Comp Cams 292 cam with a .510 lift, Comp lifters and pushrods, Trick Flow aluminum heads with 2.02 and 1.6 valves, Edelbrock RPM air gap intake, Headman 1 5/8 headers with new exhaust and chrome tips, Demon 650 street demon carb, Holley chrome mechanical fuel pump, MSD 6a ignition box, MSD HEI distributor and 8.5 mm plug wires, March performance underdrive serpentine pulleys, Three row radiator with dual electric 12" Flex-a-lite fans, Milodon seven quart oil pan, Chrome Chevrolet valve covers and air cleaner and timing chain cover. The tranny is a built 700R4 with a shift kit, a cooler and a B&M chrome deep oil pan.
The Interior is all brand new or redone to like new specs. It has new bucket seats, carpet, headliner, sunvisors, rearview mirror, new front windshield, hardware, gauges, and Nova floormats. The sound system consists of three 5 1/2 pioneers up front, two 6 x 9's in the rear package tray, two 1" MTX tweeters on front pillars with a pioneer deck that has usb and plays mp3's. The mid's and tweets are powered by a JLAudio 400W amp and one MTX 10" sub in the trunk powered by a Memphis 1000W amp in a custom made box. New complete wiring harness and a new heat and air kit from NAP.
New chrome master cylinder, brake lines, shoes and pads, all rear components and hubs.
I have put a lot of time and money into this car and know that I will probably be taking a loss. I am trying to sell it locally also so, I reserve the right to end the auction early and at any time. I have a clear AR title, I will assist in shipping if needed and will only meet within 50 miles to the winning bidder. I'm sure I've left something out so feel free to contact me with ?'s. Thanks for looking and BID TO WIN....no trades. Inspections are very welcome, I will meet any interested parties at a covenant location. I will ship the car at the buyers expense.

Chevrolet's latest road rocket, the Corvette Stingray, is a very quick car. If one needs further proof of that, we recommend they take a look at this video from Hennessey of what is claimed to be the first privately owned C7 Corvette to make a pass down the quarter mile. Not just any quarter mile, mind, this black C7 blitzed its way down the tuner's primary testing dragstrip. The Chevrolet ran the quarter in just 12.23 seconds at 114.88 miles per hour. That is a very quick time for a stock car.

Equipped with the Z51 package and a six-speed automatic transmission, not only does the C7 run a solid time, but it does so with little to no drama. That won't last though, as Hennessey will likely return it to its owner with far more power - we just hope they show a drag run of the completed product. Take a look below to watch the C7's 12.23-second run on video.
If the 2013 Indy 500 were a movie it would be the one expected to win all the little statues come awards season, and if it were an athlete it would have made spectators watch in awe as it broke record after record. And this kind of talk comes after last year's race was considered one of the best ever - the last lap hijinks in 2012 and Takuma Sato's crash leading to a podium ceremony straight out of a Golden Globes tearjerker.

But this year's race delivered more than anyone expected, from the 250,000 fans to the commentators to the IndyCar series itself and, finally, to the guy who hopped through a two-mile window on Lap 197 to take the lead and keep it until the end.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may expand a recall campaign for faulty brake lamps. The agency is currently looking into complaints that certain 2004-2011 Chevrolet Malibu models as well as some 2007-2009 Saturn Aura sedans may have brake lights that do not illuminate when the driver presses the pedal. Alternatively, the lamps may also illuminate without input from the driver. General Motors recalled 8,000 Pontiac G6 models from the 2005 model year for the same problem, and NHTSA is currently investigating whether to add 550,000 more G6 models built between 2005 and 2009 to the list for the same issue.
In addition, investigators are currently examining 97 complaints from Malibu and Aura owners with the same trouble. If NHTSA adds those models to the recall campaign, more than one million units could be covered. GM, meanwhile, says there have been no accidents or injuries as a result of the problem.
