  6. Forget what you know about the Camaro’s pony car and muscle car past. The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is now a full-fledged sports car. Based on an architecture shared with Cadillac, the Camaro is light and nimble, and it offers a variety of powertrains that vary from perky to thunderous. It even rides pretty well for a sports car, though the...View the full article
  7. New to this forum, thanks for letting me be part of it.
  8. General Motors said Friday that it won't discontinue two of its full-size sedans this summer as the automaker had originally planned. The big cars will continue to be built until early next year instead. Last fall, GM said that it planned to close its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant in Michigan this summer. The automaker said in a statement that...View the full article

  10. The 2020 Volvo XC90 set to make its public debut at next month's 2019 Geneva Motor Show doesn't deviate much from the current model, but it gains some worthwhile tech and adds second-row captain's chairs to its roster of options. Volvo unveiled the 2020 XC90 Friday and confirmed to The Car Connection that it will go on sale later this year in the...View the full article

  13. California could do away with speed limits in certain situations if a new bill introduced by an Orange County-area senator moves forward. State Senator John M. W. Moorlach proposed Senate Bill 319 that would not only add two lanes to Interstate 5 and State Route 99, which connect the Los Angeles area to the Bay Area, but would also eliminate the...View the full article
  14. The BMW X1 didn't even appear to slow down as it barreled toward a dummy on the IIHS' test track in Virginia. With a pop, the small crossover SUV plowed into the dummy, launching it into the air. Nine of 11 crossover SUVs tested by the IIHS had no problem automatically applying the brakes in enough time to avoid impact with pedestrians, the...View the full article
  15. Welcome J. Great looking Bird bro.
  16. I'm in! 1968 Firebird 400. All original (for now). Getting a fuel injected Butler 535, 4L80E, PTC triple disc and Moser 12 bolt this spring. Should be a great summer! Oh, add new hood hinges to the list...
  17. Curtis, well yes and no. Depending on what, where and how you cut, sheet metal will warp or it won’t! In the case of my wife’s “74” all I really used was the roof, tops of the rear quarters and half of the upper pillar post. Would it have been cheaper to find a new car? Maybe, but it would not have had a full frame and all the geometrical weight shifts I made to allow this car to handle. If you look, all the upset edges, double layers sheet metal, and back window structure were left in place. This held the rear quarters together. The front pillar posts are a triple structured arch with an inner roof panel to hold that whole structure together. When I put the pillar post halves together I inserted a ½ SS rod about 12” long into the hollow channel that exists, then welded them together. In this way any collision that might occur would never be able to compromise the welds of thin sheet metal. The most damaged part of this car was basically the lower firewall/frame mount area and front floor, similar to what you have found. Here are a few more pics to give you an idea of how it progressed.
  18. In response to internal concerns that it may have overstated fuel economy and emissions figures, Ford said Thursday that it has hired an outside firm to conduct an investigation as to whether there was any wrongdoing with making its vehicles compliant with federal standards. The automaker's Group Vice President, Sustainability, Environment &...View the full article

Mercedes-Benz SLC roadster reaches end of the road After two decades, Mercedes-Benz is finally pulling the plug on its Mercedes-Benz SLC roadster. The automaker on Wednesday unveiled the...View the full article
  20. OK - I am not find 588 to easily. Is there another code next to it, starting with a letter followed by a 2-digit number? Another thing that might help is if you post a photo of your information source. Build sheet, data tag, etc.
  21. That's helps a lot. I will have to take a look at some books to see if that RPO is listed with a production count.
  22. Sure can. Just went to my rig (in storage since we get crappy winter up here) and got the info. Option code 588 at a cost of $42.13 in 1969
  23. Amazing Firebird! Excited to see more!
  24. Oh, i've considered it but im working in a driveway with very limited space. Besides, all other metal is still sitting with factory fresh paint. What baffles me, from the photos, is how your car didn't collapse on itself. I thought that if you cut the car up that much, it would warp around itself. How did you manage to avoid that?
