Official Chevrolet SS reveals set for this weekend

While the sports car and musclecar fan in me yearns for a two door coupe with lots of horsepower and good handling, the practical side of me knows that as an adult with kids I really need four doors. There are several sports cars out there that have four-doors, but more is always better.

Chevrolet is set to unveil its new SS this weekend and we know will be a rear-wheel drive sports sedan. Considering Chevrolet and the Australian company Holden are siblings and Holden just unveiled the Commodore SS V, odds are this slick orange Australian muscle car will be the Chevrolet SS.

Details are scant on the Chevrolet SS and the Holden SS V at this point. Other than these photographs we don't really know anything about vehicle. What size engine the vehicle we use remains unknown but with the unveiling of the Chevrolet SS set for this weekend hopefully all of those details will be forthcoming. This appears to be a big car, it would be nice if it came with a V-8 engine. I can certainly see Chevrolet shoehorning the V8 out of the Camaro under the hood.

24 Hours of LeMons Northern California: The Winners

Sep 17 2014 9:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

What a race! We saw a record-breaking number of teams show up for the car inspections on Friday, what seemed like most of those cars break down during Saturday’s race session, and exciting battles in all three classes on Sunday. Here’s what happened. Two years ago, we listed Cerveza Racing and their 1983 BMW 533i as one of the contending teams to watch in the future; they’d never taken an overall win at a LeMons race at that point but seemed poised to do so. ...

Skyline broke its own trail in Japan

Sep 17 2014 5:42pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Some Japanese cars are rapidly becoming collectible. Take, for example, RM’s auction last month in Monterey, Calif., where 1972 Nissan Skyline fetched an eye-popping $242,000. That’s a far cry from the $15,000 selling price of right-hand-drive examples that flooded Canada when Transport Canada lowered the importation bar from 25 years of age to 15 years. The latest incarnation of the Skyline is called the GT-R; the Skyline name was dropped in 2007 and replace ...

Trophy Truck Madness: Recoil 2: The Recoil . . . ing

Sep 17 2014 4:56pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

As if you needed further proof of how obscenely cool Trophy Trucks are, here comes the latest video from Monster Energy driver BJ Baldwin. In “Recoil 2,” Baldwin’s 800-hp Chevrolet Silverado Trophy Truck cuts a swath through Ensenada, Mexico—home of the Baja 1000—as he sets out to get from the mountains outside of town to the beach in less than 20 minutes. The route chosen conveniently allows for Baldwin to pull 360s through flaming tunnels and to jump everything in sight. Toyota Tundra Res ...

Sep 17 2014 3:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The most recent crop of Cadillacs wear MSRPs commensurate with those of the German competition—as opposed to undercutting them, which was the previous strategy—and brand chief Johan de Nysschen says that’s not going to change despite receiving some complaints from both dealers and customers. In an interview with Automotive News, de Nysschen said Cadillac models need to be priced closer to the German luxury brands to reflect their quality and that he’s comfortable with the brand dumping it ...
