Thanks, there will be a ATS-V . The current CTS-V is too heavy for me and with the ATS out the CTS will become the new STS (aka get even bigger). I hope the ATS-V goes with a LS engine of some kind, I'd like to pick one up after they're a few years old.

Here is my daily, or it will be once I have the transmission back in. Have been working the past 6 weeks refinishing furniture for my daughter moving out of the dorms and into an apartment, then hauling it from Dallas to Cincinnati. Now that that is out of the way, hopefully I can get back on the transmission.

48 Plymouth Club Coupe with a 57 model 230 flathead. Edgy finned aluminum head, Fenton Cast Iron Headers, Offy Intake, Carter Webber Carbs and a HEI Distributor from and S10. All in front of a 53 model Borg Warner R10 Overdrive transmission and 4.10 gears.

Runs great. I could not believe the difference between the 218 and the 230. Now I did add the aluminum head with a bit more compression (8.9:1 compared to 7:1) when I put in the 230 but everything else is the same. Still performance is definately noticable.

Right now it is on jackstands with the transmission out and has been for a couple of months for a new clutch. Got started then a huge list of other things fell into my lap, so the clutch has been put on the back burner for a while.

My DD is not very exciting but good solid rust free Caminos are getting less common. Actually it is a Caballero but the last time I went to the auto parts store the guy behind the counter said "what is a Caballero? A Toyota?" I just tell everyone it is an El Camino now

My CTS-V is too heavy for my likes but sure corners nice. Do you have a link to the ATS-V? I'll keep the CTS-V as it is a future collectible with the 6 speed stick. I've had it for 1 1/2 years and have put about 5000 miles on it, all trips.

Daily driver

You guys dug up a dinosour, I started this thread last year I think and had a lot of fun with it lots of interesting daily rides. I am glad several of you let it come up for air.
I can't see the post and if I read one of your user names and blinked my eyes twice I wouldn't remember the names because of stroke damage. I do know one of you are from Fairmont and one from Augusta. I was over the construction of several new schools and numerous remodels and additions all over Gordon county. I have owned over fourty really nice, high performance and muscle cars and street machines. These cars were usually three to ten years old when I owned them and back then there wasnt a Walmart in Carollton or malls in Douglasville or Rome and people didn't drive more than 3,000 to 4,000 miles per year. A few of these were cars I bought new and a few were bought from the original Owners and they were 6-Z28'S 2 were new, a 69 and a special order 93, 9- SS Impalas 2 were original 409 cars, 1 was a red 67 SS Impala factory 427, 4-speed, 4:11 rear end power brakes no other options. As heavy as these cars are I pulled the front wheels probably 2 feet off the ground and collapsed the entire front suspension and the GM warranty paid for most of it. This was on the stock SS rallye wheels and whatever tires came on a GM cars back then, Oh fourteen of these cars were Corvettes. These do not include another 30 to 40 trading cars that I probably only kept a week or two.
But I am also blessed that I still have the same Wife for fourty five years and ahe nursed me back to being able to get back up going and walking several times when Doctors said I would never get any better.
Last Oct. in N.C. on the Maxton Mile I set a landspeed record eight month after geting out of a wheelchair that I had been in for over two years. This past April I set two more landspeed records on the Ohio Mile and I was in an article in the July HotRod Magazine. My truck is being prepaired now to go back to Wilmington, Ohio next April if my health holds out, I have had pnuemonia for four weeks and believe me when I say that I have ben stuck about seven time, taken two bottles of antibiotic, two packs of steroids, taking breathing treatments four times per day etc. and Thursday when Doc listened to my lungs he just shook his head. Now they are talking about doing endoscopic surgery and clean all of the junk and trash out of my lungs so keep me in yout prayers those of you that do and if not keep a good thought for me.
MY current rides are my daily driver hotrod 37 Chevy truck that will run a lot faster than you would want to drive it, a 98 C5 Corvette coupe with 21,000 miles headers, x-pipe, ported throttle body, dual cone Volant cold air induction, and HP dyno tuneup, my 03 SS Silverado landspeed race truck making 440 hp with no cam or head work, and a 69 SS Rallyesport, Indy Pace car Camaro convertible that has always been garaged.
I was going to thank everyone that posted, didn't mean to give you a life history, thanks.

Garrell Patterson
