Today’s Cool Car: The 1963 Lola GT

Precursor for the Ford GT-40?  I’d say yes!

The gunny way. Drilling a hole directly through carpet will cause major damage as the carpet threads wrap around the drill bit and can ruin the carpet. I’ve read various tips for making bolt holes through automotive carpets: cut an “X”; use a soldering iron; heat a pipe; use an awl, etc. I mounted two […]

The ’68 Chevy C-10 truck restoration effort has taken a different direction. Instead of wheeling into the body shop for final finish paint, the original drive-train required some attention. The stock in-line 6 cylinder engine really didn’t like to operate at highway speeds. The gear ratio at the differential is pretty low and the RPMs […]

State Farm has a cool car to illustrate the difference between stock and awesome Camaros!

[Click picture for AVI movie clip Dyno, 5.4 mb] Dyno measured 389.57 ft. lbs. of torque at the rear wheels at 4800 rpm and 107 MPH at 5200 rpm. Using the formula (Horse Power = Torque x RPM / 5252) 389.57 ft. lbs. of torque translates to 356 Horsepower. Assuming 15% loss through drive train, […]

1968 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible with Supercharged 383 Small Block stroker engine (350 block / 400 crankshaft = 3.75 in stroke compared to 3.48 with stock crankshaft). Fun times!

You know I like trucks and the 1968 Chevy C10 is progressing quite nicely. But the latest seriously fun thing I did today was a trip to the Texas DMV to register another 1968 Chevy. This time is was a Camaro.  A convertible Camaro. A Camaro with a totally bad-ass supercharged 383 stroker Chevy-powered engine […]

I’ve actually seen this in ‘person’ at the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise! Cool!  

2014 Camaro Z-28 runs 7:37:47 Lap at Nurburgring

Category: Automotive | Comments Off on 2014 Camaro Z-28 runs 7:37:47 Lap at Nurburgring

Pretty good showing for the normally aspirated Camaro. Motor Trend has more details, including comparison of this lap time to other cars.

    It’s a beautiful thing. For those who want to know these things, the bed’s front panel, two sides, tailgate, fender wells, splash guards, brace rods, latch handle, cross sills, wood pieces, wood stain, and all attachment hardware runs at about $3,500.

Thanks to Rockler Woodworking, the 3″ Forstner bit is set to arrive arrived oday. It is indeed a thing of beauty. I’ll use the 1/2″ drive 3″ diameter bit to recess the fuel filler cap into the pickup truck’s bed floor, and another 1-1/2″ Forstner bit to make the hole all the way through for […]

A Corvette Station Wagon?

Category: Automotive | Comments Off on A Corvette Station Wagon?

Called the AeroWagon Corvette. Not an idea I would have come up with. Hmm. A Corvette Pickup Truck Edition maybe?   Details at Fox

Wood bed floor installation is almost done.  That’s a lot of bolts, nuts and washers! I’m wondering now whether the Weathered Gray board finish will go with Lexus’ SC 430 Millennium Silver Metallic paint?  The wood finish seems a little too ‘blue’ in comparison. For now, it’s good that everything goes well with black!

The first day on the road after the State Inspection, I got a Thumbs Up signal from the passenger in this car: Pic from CORVETTEBlogger.com not the actual car, but real close in appearance. The ol’ 68 truck may not be purty yet, but she’s a long way from homely. Current status: The kiln dried […]

Day 25: Bumpers are on and, except for one backup light, the lights are in.  All the new front end pieces were happy to get their full chassis lubrication treatment as well The alignment process was a success! Green is good! Best news of the day was that she’s now legal! Passing the Texas Safety […]

Day 24: Hood in place – Latch bolt needed to finish … Also outer cowl, windshield wipers and radio antennae! Careful observers will note the rifle rack installed in the back window. Sweet. An eBay bargain!

Day 23: It seems like I spent half the day getting the first bolt hole to line up on the passenger side.  After that it went pretty well. Chrome pieces to be added after paint. The steering column arrived, but a few more pieces are still needed. Turn signal lever, emergency light button, &c. I’m […]

Day 22: Interesting challenge of the day was: “Why is there a 2-1/2″ opening where the 2-7/8″ rear cross sill goes?” Answer Part I: A section of steel plate extended down from the bed sides’ post supports. After a call to the parts supplier which yielded no additional information, the only reason I could see […]

Day 21: I found the 6-part door repair series by milkcrate82 very helpful in this process. Here are links to his videos: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 The disassembly sequence for Chevy truck doors is: 1) Panels 2) Track (bolts at back of door and inside) 3) Weather […]

Days 13 – 20: Some replacement parts arrived today. Thanks LMC Truck! And kudos for your customer service. In the meanwhile, I been tinkering a bit more. The fan shroud is now properly aligned. The lower hood latch is installed. A leak at the radiator’s Low Coolant warning sensor outlet was resolved with some thread […]

Two Speed Wiper Switch Wiring for 1968-1972 GM Trucks

In case “someone” helpfully discarded the factory wiring harness plug and then replaced your Chevy wiper control switch with another that doesn’t in anyway resemble the correct part, here are the 1968-1972 terminal wiring assignments for: Beginning Year: 1968 Ending Year: 1972 Make: CHEVROLET C10 PICKUP C10 SUBURBAN C20 PICKUP C20 SUBURBAN C30 PICKUP K10 […]

Day 12: The first step for today was to have the new Moog ball joints press fit into the lower control arms. $40 later and we’re ready for some assembly. I drilled the saddle holes for larger (9/16″) u-bolts from LMC Truck and test fit all four. Note the rivet in the center of the […]

Day 11: For some reason, the early Chevy C10 pickup trucks had an internal fuel tank.  Internal as in inside the cab. The problem with mine was that the internal tank leaked. Add 10 gallons of gas? Prepare for seepage about 2/3 from the bottom, and gas fumes? Most unpleasant. The solution: An external gas […]

Day 10: Old bed removed (now on Craigslist!), tailgate hinges and latch disassembled, tail lights, backup and license plate lights removed. Power brake fittings and vacuum hose installed New steering gear, Pitman arm and idler arm installed. Inner cowl and front of cab sanded and primer coated.
