http://www.v8tvshow.com - After the chassis was media blasted, the guys
took the welders, grinders, and sanders to the frame to clean-up what the
factory left behind. They welded up unfinished factory seams, ground off
excess welding slag and started measuring to add additional steel to "box"
the original frame for strength. They also try out the new HTP micro
belt sander to clean tight areas.

GM Expects Self-Driving Vehicles to Be Reality V8TV
[08-Jan-2008] During the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas,
General Motors (GM) will showcase one of its latest projects -- a vehicle
that can operate without a driver. GM indicates vehicles that can park and
drive themselves will give passengers the ability to multi-task and will
also help reduce traffic congestion, save energy and reduce emissions.
Currently, several outlets including GM, technology companies, university
engineers and others are working on various self-driving options. GM's
self-driving Chevrolet Tahoe, nicknamed the "Boss," was developed by the
Carnegie Mellon University Tarton Racing Team, and was initially unveiled
during the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Urban
Challenge in November 2007. During a Jan. 8 address at CES by CEO Rick
Wagoner, GM will also debut the petroleum-free Cadillac Provoq concept

1966 GTO Blog #4 - Shifting Gears V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - We spent many hours and days contemplating how to
make the giant 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission fit under the '66 GTO,
but it looks like the surgery required will push this car well beyond its
deadline and budget. While it is a cool transmission, the 6L80E is
simply enourmous, and in order to make it fit under the car, we'd have to
cut the entire floor out and fab a whole new tunnel, raise the enigine, and
try to make it clear the hood. We simply don't have the time. So,
after a chat with Mark Bowler of Bowler Performance Transmissions, the
choice was made to switch to a GM 4L65E, a 4-speed automatic trans that is
a much easier fit to the car. But in order to keep the car's original
multi-gear theme, Bowler informed us of a new plan utilizing a Gear Vendors
overdrive unit, a Bowler controller, and a Twist Machine Shrifter paddle
shifter that will allow the driver to manually shift up and down through 8
gears. The detials are to come on this system, but right now we're
working on getting the 4L65E into the car and getting the wiring harness to
work with the L92 V8's ECM.
