1971 CORVETTE LT1 in WAR BONNET YELLOW – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 662

1971 CORVETTE in WAR BONNET YELLOW – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 662 – Coffee, the Beach and to The Automobile Driving Museum by 8am for a Corvette Car Show. Fireball spots a perfect 1971 Corvette LT1 in War Bonnet Yellow.

From WIKI… The Chevrolet Corvette (C3) was a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years.

Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous generation, but the body and interior were new. It set new sales records with 53,807 produced for the 1979 model year.

The C3 is the third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, while the 1969 through 1976 models mark the second generation of the Corvette Stingray.

1971 cars were virtually identical in appearance to the previous model inside and out.

This was the final year for the fiber optics light monitoring system, the headlight washer system, and the M22 heavy duty 4-speed manual gearbox.

For the first time, air conditioning was installed on most of the cars, with nearly 53 percent so ordered. Engines were detuned with reduced compression ratios to tolerate lower octane fuel.

The small blocks available were the 350 cu in (5.7 L) base engine, which dropped to 270 hp (201 kW), and the high performance LT-1, now listed at 330 hp (246 kW).

The LS5 454 cu in (7.4 L) motor was carried over and produced 365 hp (272 kW). Offered in ‘71 only was the LS6 454 cu in (7.4 L) big-block featuring aluminum heads and delivering 425 hp (317 kW), highest of the 1970-72 series, and could be ordered with an automatic transmission.

The ZR1 option was carried over for LT-1 equipped cars and the ZR2 option, offered this year only, provided a similar performance equipment package for LS6 cars, and restricted transmission to a 4-speed manual.

Rare options: ZR1 special engine package (8), ZR2 special engine package (12), LS6 425-hp engine (188), shoulder belts in convertibles (677).

WE HEAD TO #PIXAR – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 603

It’s a travel day for Fireball and buddy John Grafman as they head to #SanFrancisco. Tomorrow will be #PIXAR!

About Pixar from WIKI… #Pixar, also referred to as #PixarAnimationStudios, is an American computer animation film studio based in Emeryville, California that is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. Pixar began in 1979 as the Graphics Group, part of the Lucasfilm computer division, before its spin-out as a corporation in 1986, with funding by Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs, who became the majority shareholder.

Disney purchased Pixar in 2006 at a valuation of $7.4 billion, a transaction that resulted in Jobs becoming Disney’s largest single shareholder at the time. Pixar is best known for CGI-animated feature films created with RenderMan, Pixar’s own implementation of the industry-standard RenderMan image-rendering application programming interface, used to generate high-quality images.

Pixar has produced seventeen feature films, beginning with Toy Story (1995), which was the first-ever computer-animated feature film, and its most recent being Finding Dory (2016).

All 17 of its films have debuted with CinemaScore ratings of at least an “A−,” indicating positive receptions with audiences. The studio has also produced several short films. As of October 2016, its feature films have earned approximately $10.8 billion at the box office worldwide, with an average worldwide gross of $634 million per film.

Finding Dory, along with its predecessor Finding Nemo (2003), as well as Toy Story 3 (2010) are among the 50 highest-grossing films of all time, with the lattermost film being the third all-time highest-grossing animated film with a gross of $1.063 billion. Fourteen of Pixar’s films are also among the 50 highest-grossing animated films of all time.

The studio has earned sixteen Academy Award
