Chevy SS is no more

The Chevy successor to the Pontiac G8 is now no more. Soon neither will be rest of Holden Manufacturing. A sad day really. Another blow to a wonderful rear wheel drive platform and series of cars. I hope GM decides to build something in North America to replace it (and at a cheaper base price than the current $48k starting price). The 6th gen Camaro (zeta platform) is now built in Lansing MI so perhaps they will add new product to Lansing in the future.

Now the interesting question, what will GM submit to NASCAR as their "corporate" car for the Monster Energy series for 2018? The Chevy SS is the current car for the Monster Series and the Camaro is the Xfinity series car. 

Promote the Camaro? Perhaps.

Impala? It's been the Sprint Cup car before, so why not again?

Mailbu? Why not?

Cadillac ATS or CTS? It would be novel to see "Cadillac" running at Daytona. However I don't see this fitting the Cadillac image.

Buick Regal? Regals once ran at NASCAR when they were RWD. So it "could" happen but I doubt GM will submit it.

I'd love to see that happen. It rose to become a Chevy SS when Pontiac was closed so I hope it rises again at a NA plant.

      So I am replacing my engine which was originally 8305 was swap to a 350, but instead of having someone else rebuild it I was going to buy a new one put it in and learn how to rebuild the current 350 in my own spare time. My question is is An old350 Just an old 350 or is that your specific because of the mounting set up? Because I’m finding a lot of good set up’s four 1980 Chevy/Pontiac  and older. So can anybody point  Me to a direction that can tell me if my car is compatible with any other year of Chevy/ Pontiac years?

      Like the title says, Chevy is now marketing and selling a bunch of engines as crate engines on their site:

      Whelp went out this morning just to look at Camaro's and see if I could get talkin with a Sales guy on numbers. Anywho after a test drive, I gave him all my discounts and well I got the numbers plus lower than what I wanted so......... I bought it!!

      One thing I wasn't too fond of is yes, its an automatic BUT my Dad over the past 3 weeks mega talked me out of the manual. With the idiots in this town plus some other factors I decided I'm happy with an auto. I am more than ecstatic with it and think it was a great purchase!!

      Anyway on to the fun stuff All the options and pictures

      What it has:
      Heads Up Display
      Leather seats w/ premium stitching
      Paddle shifters
      plus the 2SS package


      The 6er isn't happy about giving up her spot in the garage lol


      You have no idea how big the smile is on my face when I'm driving this car
