Chevrolet Has Another Life-size LEGO Build, This Time its A Silverado

Life-size replica of cars in LEGO is becoming old. On our end alone, we have already come across quite a handful, including Nathan Sawaya’s Batmobile, a 2-ton Toyota Camry, and a LEGO Technic-based Bugatti Chiron. Though the latter did stood out as a life-size replica that is actually drivable, albeit very slowly, and not a mere sculpture. Speaking of life-size replica of cars in LEGO and sculpture… here’s another: a Full-size LEGO 2019 Chevrolet Silverado.

I Can’t Stop Thinking About Chevy’s Custom 1967 C-10 Pickup Truck

The sleek lines offered on today’s pickup truck are pretty. I am not going to deny it. However, there is this thing found in the pickup trucks from the 60-80s that have me faithfully loving them until today. I love how pickup trucks of those days looked. You know, the straight, flat look with the right amount of chrome on them. They are so clean and yet speaks volume. It is like, there was a lot of things happening on it, but never intrusive or an eyesore. Those are exactly the ‘qualities’ found on the custom 1967 C-10 pickup revealed by Chevrolet at the Texas State Fair.

Love Chevy? Then You Really Have To Check This Miniature 1970 Chevy Nova

We love automobile, big or small, drivable or not, and so, naturally, this custom miniature 1970 Chevrolet Nova fastback coupe had our attention. Hand built by one enthusiast, this miniature Nova was, at one point, put up on sale on Craigslist in 2016. A video of it was posted on YouTube channel, Urban Hillbilly Videos, which includes a description of the said ad: Continue reading Love Chevy? Then You Really Have To Check This Miniature 1970 Chevy Nova

Look, Chevrolet Built A Life-size The LEGO Batman Movie’s Batmobile

During the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) last month, American automaker surprised visitors with a unlikely ‘concept car’: a life-size LEGO Batmobile straight out of LEGO animated flick The LEGO Batman Movie. Created in collaboration with students from Detroit’s Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and First LEGO League, this bricksomeful crimefighting vehicle, which stretches 17 feet long (a little shorter than Sawaya’s creation), measures 9.25 feet across and stands 6.92 feet tall (about 5.2 x 2.8 x 2.1 meters), is made up of a whopping 344,187 LEGO bricks and weighs in at a hefty 1,695.5 pounds (769 kg). The tires alone account for 400 pounds (181 kg), each weighing no less than 100 pounds (45 kg!). Continue reading Look, Chevrolet Built A Life-size The LEGO Batman Movie’s Batmobile

Chevrolet Showoff 2017 Silverado HD’s Power With World Record Pull

If there’s anyway to convince potential truck buyers how bloody strong the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD truck is, it is to have a big-ass flag in tow and in the process, setting a new Guinness World Records for World’s Largest Flag Pulled by a Moving Vehicle. And that, my friend, was exactly what Chevy did. The record saw a 2017 Silverado HD powered by Duramax 6.6L turbo-diesel motor with 445 horses and 910 lb-ft (1,234 Nm) pulled an enormous 3,200 square-foot (297 square-meter) American flag around the Texas Motor Speedway’s 1.5 mile oval.

GM’s Chevy Fuel-cell Off-roader For U.S. Army Looks Like A Show Truck

This is not a Hummer replacement. The U.S. military has already found that. This one here, the Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 Fuel Cell Vehicle, is the future of the battlefield. Apart of having the ability to go places – thanks to its lifted ride height and massive 37-inch tires – it is fuel cell powered, meaning it will be going places in a stealthy manner. On top of that, it has what GM refers to as “Exportable Power Take-Off” unit which allows the fuel cell power to support activities away from the vehicle, even if it is in areas where electricity supply is non-existence. Continue reading GM’s Chevy Fuel-cell Off-roader For U.S. Army Looks Like A Show Truck

Callaway Cars Tuned Camaro Has Over 600HP, Claimed As The Most Powerful 2016 Camaro

It may not be a car that could transformed into a mute organic robot, but the 2016 Callaway Camaro SC600 is no less impressive. Outfitted with patented Callaway GenThree supercharger package and cooling system, the SC600 packs no less than 600 horsepower (and around 600 lb-ft of torque) to snag the title as the most powerful street legal 2016 Camaro. One look at the raised hood, you know something serious in power is lurking beneath and Callaway Cars is not shy about boasting what it has installed for you.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro Unveiled, is Leaner and Packs More Horses

The sixth-generation Camaro has finally been unveiled on Saturday and as we all know, it is kind of a big deal for Chevrolet because it is a Camaro. The new generation fastback muscle car is said to offer a more nimble driving experience, attributed by an all-new, lighter architecture and of course, a broader powertrain range. That said, we will never understand the rationale of offering a wide engine range. I mean. It is a Camaro for goodness sake. It is supposed to perform and as such why do you need an entry-level 2.0L turbo unit? Not that 275 horse and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) coming from the 2.0L unit is anything shabby, but it is pretty pale when compared to the 3.6 V6 powertrain which delivers 335 hp and 284 lb-ft (385 Nm) of torque and the range-topping 6.2L V8 of the Camaro SS that pumps out 455 horses and 455 lb-ft (617 Nm) of torque. Continue reading 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Unveiled, is Leaner and Packs More Horses

Chevrolet Autonomous Concept Car is as Futuristic as any Car Can Get

It looks like Google autonomous concept car has some serious competitions, well, at least on the look department. Now, we do not profess ourselves as experts in self-driving cars, but we do know a beauty when a concept projects the image that matches the image of the future, stuck at the back of our mind since Minority Report and today, that car would be the Chevrolet-FNR Autonomous Electric Concept Car which was unveiled recently at the Shanghai GM Gala Night. Ok, to be fair. Mercedes-Benz F 015 was on the top of our chart for being very future forward-looking, but the FNR here, man, it is exactly what we have imagined the cars of future to be. Throw in an autonomous package, it would be the car of the future. How can it not be (the car of the future)? Continue reading Chevrolet Autonomous Concept Car is as Futuristic as any Car Can Get

Tom Bailey’s 69 Camaro “Sick Seconds 2.0” is a 4,000HP Street Legal Car

We have long heard about the legend of imports being cranked up to a couple of thousand ponies, but seriously, those monster power rides will probably never set foot (or in this case, wheels) on the regular roads. Not in the case of Tom Bailey’s creation, the second generation Sick Seconds car simply refer to as Sick Seconds 2.0 which, like its predecessor, is completely street legal and it has Michigan plate (appropriately registered as ’sickest’) to prove that. Based on a 69’ Camaro, this living, breathing beast (just short of fire breathing) was unveiled at 2015 Detroit Autorama in the O’Reilly booth. Though street legal, it looks nothing like one, really. I mean it is decidedly a drag car or more correctly, a Pro-mod and for good reasons. Continue reading Tom Bailey’s 69 Camaro “Sick Seconds 2.0” is a 4,000HP Street Legal Car
