Report Says Excess Diesel Emissions Caused 38,000 Premature Deaths

  Report Says Excess Diesel Emissions Caused 38,000 Premature Deaths According to a report from Nature, an "international weekly journal of science", diesel emissions are much more harmful than we previously thought. This isn’t just a cheat device issue-it’s quite a bit bigger than that. Unsurprisingly, the report says heavy-duty vehicles are the biggest contributor of excess diesel emissions. The total is 4.6 million tons more emissions than international standards allow. The study concludes a whopping 38,000 premature deaths were caused worldwide by these excess emissions in 2015. How do diesel emissions kill people? Nitrogen oxides damage lung tissues and react with other chemicals to form ozone.

Jake Selders Jr. lives in the foothills of Southern California’s San Bernardino Mountains and has always loved the outdoors and trucks. While he’s owned several trucks over the years, Jake says he wanted something that is unique, cool, and capable of taking him to his favorite remote fishing spots.

Partial to the styling and the space for gear ’60-to-’66 Chevrolet panel trucks offer (Suburbans with windowless sides, two front and rear doors, and only a single front seat as standard equipment), Jake went looking for one and found a well-used but mostly straight ’60 C30 model. The rig was in great mechanical condition, considering it was 53 years old when he found it.

Although the panel’s stock 3.9L (235ci) I-6 gas engine might have been a good powerplant in its day, Jake deemed it unacceptable for his needs. Always a fan of diesel trucks, Jake began searching for the perfect donor rig to supply a driveline. He also wanted to upgrade the older frame to handle the torque of a modern diesel engine. A big fan of Cummins-powered Dodge Ram pickups, Jake decided a 5.9L oil-burner would be the perfect engine for the build. So, when measuring trucks to find the best fit for the classic Chevy panel-delivery body, he discovered the frame from a ’95 Dodge 3500 regular cab longbed was almost a perfect fit. Even better, this early second-generation truck was a four-wheel drive, perfect for getting off the pavement and down the backroads for fishing and camping.

The Last Chevy SS Is Black With a Manual Gearbox

  The Last Chevy SS Is Black With a Manual Gearbox Australia's Holden built the last Chevrolet SS, with the employees signing the inside of the hood before putting her on a ship to America.We knew this moment would come before summer ended. GM decided to shut down Holden a long time ago, and with the Commodore done, so was the slow-selling, yet excellent Chevy SS. GM never bothered to advertise its imported super sedan, after launching it as an automatic-only car in 2014. The stick shift became a no cost option the following year, and whoever ordered the last one made sure to tick that box.

The only problem with the combination was the Cummins I-6 is much longer than the stock gas engine. To compensate for the difference, Jake mounted the truck’s grille in front of the radiator and then created a custom cowl for the hood and two front fenders (which were extended). This solution to make the front clip fit the engine was simple in design but required some expert bodywork. But now, unless you see Jake’s rig parked next to a stock panel truck of the same vintage, you wouldn’t know its nose is longer.

Jake really likes the truck’s patina, the light surface rust peeking out from beneath the original paint. To preserve the oxidized look, Jake’s friend, Lil Louie, matched the original patina with a cool color update, while retaining about 60 percent of the original patina. To deaden noise and keep the interior washable after those muddy days off the pavement, the interior was sprayed with black Line-X. To further reduce the tin can popping of the stock roof, the very top cap was sprayed with a gray Rhino Linings mix.

Chevy and Ford Race to Join Ram in the Half-Ton Diesel Pickup Segment

  Chevy and Ford Race to Join Ram in the Half-Ton Diesel Pickup Segment <p>Spy shots of the diesel-powered 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and Ford F-150 have been spotted around the Internet.</p>We already know Ford plans to release the F-150 diesel in the spring of 2018, but the deadline is a little foggier for the Silverado 1500. The forums speculate Chevy will use either a 4.5-liter diesel V-6 or the current 2.8-liter Duramax diesel four-cylinder found in the Colorado and Canyon. The current 2.8-liter Duramax would most likely be retuned for a higher output over the Colorado's 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque.

Merging both trucks’ electrical strategies was the hardest part of the project. The Suburban’s wiring is quite simple compared to the later rig. However, the simplicity isn’t an advantage. The panel’s original headlights, running lights, wipers, and turn signals were retained, and everything else from the Dodge Ram was transplanted, except for the gauges. Auto Meter’s vintage instruments were installed in a billet-aluminum dash panel for an updated stock appearance. A period-correct-looking replacement radio was used, too, as well as a Vintage Air air-conditioning system.

The Dodge Ram’s steering column was swapped into the panel, giving it cruise control and antilock brakes. Other electrical upgrades are LED foglights, backup lights, and a set of train horns. The original 60/40 front bench seat is reupholstered with more padding but retains an old-school look.

Other upgrades include two custom fuel tanks—one in the stock location and another behind the axle, for a total of 85 gallons. Jake says this gives him about a 1,280-mile fuel range on the highway. He also has a water tank for the outdoor shower and a built-in, 20-gallon gas tank for fueling dirt bikes. Two underbody deep-cycle batteries power the shower and lights when camping. To support the extra weight of the full fuel and water tanks, a set of firestone airbags is installed in the rear.

The 1960 Jaguar XK150 S Roadster: Power Is Not a New Invention

  The 1960 Jaguar XK150 S Roadster: Power Is Not a New Invention Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's July 4th weekend, the birthday of America, fireworks and all, the greatest and richest nation in the blah blah blah. I'm choosing to celebrate something built by the island nation from which we declared out independence 241 years ago this week. In the days leading up to Goodwood Festival of Speed, Joe Eberhardt, the President and CEO of Jaguar Land Rover North America, was kind enough to lend me one of Jag's exquisite examples—in a deep navy blue—of the 1960 Jaguar XK150 S 3.8 Roadster. This two-seater is the crown jewel of the XK150 line. Powered by a 3.8-liter evolution of Jaguar’s dual overhead camshaft straight-six, this engine managed to generate a blistering 265 bhp, or around 269 horsepower, and propelled the drophead to a top speed of over 135 mph—an irresponsible pace for any generation. Sitting behind the wheel, the cockpit is simple as a car should be. The dash has an uncluttered array and a radio with a tagline—"His Master's Voice"—that sounds like a Led Zeppelin lyric. In motion, the car is a blast to drive—the opposite in every way from most cars that roll of the assembly line today: The road noise in deafening, the offset pedals torture devices, and the wheel about 45% too large. The steering is at times more of an implication than a command, and even though it has four-wheel disc brakes—a first for any production car—the stopping power in suburban London rush hour traffic kept my braking foot on its toes.

Fun Fact: In 1995, stock performance for the 5.9L Cummins engine was 175 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Jake estimates that with the high-flow air intake and a few other minor changes, the 12-valve oil-burner in his rig pushes out 210 hp and 440 lb-ft. The performance is much better than that of the 3.9L (235ci) I-6 gas engine that motivated the truck originally, as it only offered about 123 hp and 217 lb-ft of torque.


Matt Barba Spent 19 years on a 1960 Chevy Dad Told Him Not to Buy .
If car features were sung to the tune of a well-known country song, Matt Barba’s 1960 Chevy Impala would be sung to the tune of Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried.”If car features were sung to the tune of a well-known country song, Matt Barba's 1960 Chevy Impala would be sung to the tune of Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried." You see, the first time Matt saw his 1960 Chevy his dad went with him to evaluate the car, and he strongly advised Matt against trading for it. Matt was 16 years old, and a kid he knew wanted to swap the 1960 Chevy straight across for the 1989 Nissan mini-truck Matt's folks had bought him for $1,200.
