    Hotrodders' Lounge
    Some of you might have already seen this on Yahoo this morning. Kind of interesting to see this article after reading a recent thread on this forum about insuring classic cars. Not sure how I feel about it, but it does seem to serve its intended purpose. Jekyll-and-Hyde 1968 Chevy Camaro...

  4. "Chevrolet Debuts Two Compact Coupe Concepts"

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    From Hot Rod magazine's Facebook: "Chevrolet Debuts Two Compact Coupe Concepts". Code 130R concept looks like it is aimed at the Scion FRS / Subaru BRZ, while the Tru 140S seems to be targeting Hyundai's latest in the Veloster. Is Chevy/GM simply responding to the latest trends by playing...

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    Some of you may have already seen this today on Yahoo: "Driving green means not changing your oil until you need to". California can never be green enough. And one of the "commenters" got it right: this probably would lead to service stations charging more.

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    Saw the news on Facebook today that GM will be releasing a new small block Chevy engine, dubbed Generation V. Is Chevy catching up to the times? Or entering the future? "Fifth Generation Promises a Leaner and Meaner Small Block" "GM Builds 100 Millionth Small Block Chevy Engine"

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    Some of you may have already seen this article posted on Yahoo this morning: "R.I.P. to 14 cars and trucks for 2012". Usually these lists don't surprise me, but I gotta admit that I was caught off-guard by the Ford Ranger going away without any replacement plans for the US market. Considering...
  10. "Fuel-Saving Devices Debunked"

    Hotrodders' Lounge
    Some of you may have already seen this story posted on Yahoo this morning: "Fuel-Saving Devices Debunked". Im surprised to see that there were any gains at all. On a related note, I remember a few years back when Summit was selling some fuel-catalyst device by a company called Fitch. Always...
