    Chevrolet News:Chevrolet Drops A New Turbo-Four Into 2019 Silverado

    ^^^ This was essentially my question as well to @Drew Dowdell. DO U know the difference in weight between the Silvy and the F150? I'm seeing that the 2019s should come in at about 450-500lbs lighter than the previous, which started at about 4500lbs.. so it appears that the Silvy should be literally the same weight as the F150

    But why.. if this is rated on Regular octane and not doing what Ford normally does and rate their HP/TQ on Premium. This normally equates to a 20HP loss if U use 87 in a Ecoboost Mustang for instance

    This is cool.. but still.. what in GM marketing allows them to have an engine that is still 15Hp/27 ft lb of torque less than the 2.7L Ford F150? I sure it was the benchmark.. What's the weight difference? Is this.. like other GM turbos a 87 Octane figure?

    How is it relevant that U've screwed a toe hook in few cars but not a C7 CORVETTE? The C7's Tow Hook connection (screw in) both front and rear are very difficult to lign up due to the angle of the vehicle. There are literally videos on Youtube that verify what I say.

    @Cubical-aka-Moltar... Man.. I have no desire to have a front tag on my Vette.. as I don't have one even on my Vseries. The MD law suggests that if the holes are not drilled already by the dealer upon delivery then one is not necessarily required. Even on the off chance I've been get pulled over for it.. each time the cop let me off with a warning, even after having it happen before. On my '08, '14 Vettes.. on my '09, '12 VSeries.. never a plate. @ccap41 as always U have to come with something..LOL.. to your commentary about how easy it is to "It wouldn't take any time to walk to the truck, grab it out, and screw it in." Obviously U've never had to do it.. it is not an easy task due to the way the car is angled and the threads hae to be perfectly aligned. That being said.. this tow hook is not a Stock tow hook and the RED portion (HOOK) can actually be left off with the Black portion (shaft) can stay in unnoticed unless one were to get up seriously close and get on their knees to inspect. Lastly... I had it on only for the pic.. and took it off when I finished. NOW THO.. I think I might put it back on just because I feel like it

    My NEW.. 1966 Chevy Impala SS

    Been out for about a month now.. just loving her. Supposed to go to a car show in Ocean City MD this weekend but the rain is supposed to go on for another damn week. This is at Sagamore Pendry in Baltimore. I pulled up and the Paparazzi showed up. LOL

    Considered... but probably won't do unless something were to go up
  11. And while it’s hard to see the final numbers in the video, the time slip doesn’t lie. The Corvette absolutely slaughtered the Demon, laying down a time of 10.20 at 137 mph, while the Demon lumbered to an 11.59 at 134 mph. Judging by the MPH and the poor 1.95 60-foot time, the Demon was fighting some serious traction issues. But either way you cut it, the Corvette simply outperformed the Demon. http://www.dragzine.com/news/corvette-zr1-destroys-dodge-demon-sets-world-record-the-same-night/

    Ford News: Ford Slices and Dices Their Car Lineup

    I just never understood this mentality. No offense. It was clearly touted by some that the Continental would put the CT6 on the truck.. if for no other reason than it had a name, let alone a name of yore. Not only has the more expensive.. non-named CT6 (2467) sold more than the Continental/MKS (2427), but it did so while the actual true Conti competitor, XTS (almost 4898 sales YTD), outsold the Lincoln more than 2:1... while being on the same lot. I think that very often the people who trumpet a return of certain things. are the every same people who don't buy when new.. and still wait til the car is a new generation to buy used. I maintain that the Continental is a plush car inside.. but boring as fuck in every other possible way. I'd buy one if.. and only if.. it was 50% off.. the only American luxo fullsize available new or used.. and I was pushing 80 years old. Luckily there are Tauruss, Impalas, LaXs, XTSs, and CT6s (in order of least luxuriously desirable) rolling off the factory floor weekly

    Ford News: Ford Slices and Dices Their Car Lineup

    Read a few posts, but don't really want to glaze over all that has been written in this thread.. I personally am appalled at the idea of Ford abandoning almost all of its cars for trucks and CUVs. My fear is that GM will follow suit.. and that would be a horrible idea.. much like it was in '96 when they completely abandoned their full-size cars for SUVs.. only to return to full-sizers 10 years later. My thought is that, and hopefully.. GM is a bit more insulated against the cost/vehicle issue I can see over at Ford. They sell more.. still have 4 brands in the U.S. that can sop up the costs, while Ford only has 2. If Mercury was still around it may have changed this decision.. As it stands.. GM has Chevy, Buick, Cadillac, and GMC . I have constantly maintained that the numbers don't lie.. When people were celebrating the Fusion's sales a few years ago.. I cautioned that it's lead over the Malibu was somewhat BS.. when one consider that the Malibu was not just the Malibu.. it was the EPSILON II Platform. The Sales last month of the Malibu(Exx Platform) were: Malibu/Impala 22,500 + Lax/Regal- 2900+ XTS- 1800= 27,200 Fusion/Taurus/Interceptor 19K + MKZ/Conti 2900 =21,900 Both utilize these platforms for CUvs so its moot.. but the real kicker in this argument is profit margins.. GM sells more sure.. but the profits have the Buick and Cadillac brands in this sedan fight are huge. Understand that the higher profits of the Conti and MKZ over the Fusion are probably decent.. but they fall when comparing them to what the XTS/Lax/Regal bring in.. Not to mention that the Malibu/Impala still sell more for than their Ford counterparts.. at a similar price point. I know for a fact that the Law enforcement bunch buying Interceptors are getting them for a song.. Ford is not making huge profits from those transactions at all.
