SEXIEST CHEVY PICKUP TRUCK SHOW EVER! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 690

SEXIEST CHEVY PICKUP TRUCK SHOW EVER! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 690 – Fireball heads to the Automobile Driving Museum for a Tailgate Pickup Truck Show. Spots some of the sexiest trucks you’ve ever seen. Then, it’s off to do Malibu stuff including BIG WAVES!

The C/K was Chevrolet and GMC’s full-size chevy pickup truck line from 1960 until 2000 in the United States, from 1965 to 1999 in Canada, from 1964 to 2001 in Brazil, and from 1975 to 1982 in Chile.

The first Chevrolet pickup truck was introduced in 1924, though in-house designs did not appear until 1930.

“C” indicated two-wheel drive and “K” indicated four-wheel drive.

The aging C/K light-duty pickup truck was replaced with the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra names in 1999 in the United States and Canada, and 2001 in Brazil; the Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD heavy-duty pickup trucks followed.

Until this time, the names Silverado and Sierra were used to identify the trim level of the C/K chevy pickup trucks.

For the first Chevrolet C Series #pickuptruck, made from 1911 to 1913, see Chevrolet Series C Classic Six (the first Chevy).

The 1960 model year introduced a new body style of light pick-up truck that featured many firsts.

Most important of these were a drop-center ladder frame, allowing the cab to sit lower, and independent front suspension, giving an almost car-like ride in a truck.

Also new for 1960 was a new designation system for trucks made by GM. Gone were the 3100, 3200, and 3600 designations for short 1/2, long 1/2 and 3/4-ton models.

Instead, a new scheme assigned a 10, 20, or 30 for 1/2, 3/4, and 1-ton models.

Since 1957, trucks were available from the factory as four-wheel drive, and the new class scheme would make this known.

A C (conventional) in front of the series number indicates two-wheel rear drive while a K denotes four-wheel drive.

Actual badging on Chevrolet trucks carried the series name system from the previous generation in 1960 and 1961: the 10, 20, 30, and 40 series (C and K) were badged as “Apaches”, 50 and 60 series trucks were badged as “Vikings”, and the largest 70 and 80 series models were marked “Spartans”.

In 1960, C/K trucks were available in smooth “Fleetside” or fendered “Stepside” versions. GMC called these “Wide-Side” and “Fenderside.”

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).
