WD-40 Brand is auctioning its classic 1951 Chevrolet 3100 to benefit SEMA Cares charities, including Childhelp. 

The auction is taking place on

 from Feb. 28 to March 7.

WD-40 Brand and SEMA Cares partnered with Trad Ronfeldt to rebuild the WD-40 Brand/SEMA Cares Custom 1951 Chevrolet 3100, which debuted at the 2021 SEMA Show at the WD-40 Brand booth. All of the proceeds from the auction will go to SEMA Cares Charities, including Childhelp, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse.

Ronfeldt – a seasoned automotive mechanic, fabricator, welder, and professional off-road crew chief – had an ambitious plan to rebuild the vehicle from the ground up. He wanted to create something that looked like it just rolled off the production line, and he accomplished this and more.

The 1951 Chevrolet 3100 is now a road-ready vehicle that maintains its classic look with a custom-built dually rear-end, backed by added horsepower and superior performance. Ronfeldt fabricated the truck bed from new materials to imitate the truck’s body lines to make it look like a Chevrolet production piece straight off the assembly line.

In addition, the vehicle has numerous updates, including:  

  • A V-8 fuel-injected 383 Stoker producing 500+ horsepower  
  • Custom dually rear with widened Currie axle  
  • New suspension design  
  • A restored cab interior with new upholstery and distressed leather seats  
  • A custom patina paint job  
  • Completely new drivetrain and transmission

To date, WD-40 Brand has built and auctioned more than 10 vehicles and raised more than $1 million for charity.

      Below are images of a vintage Chevy steering wheel. Can you help narrow this down to year and model? My guess is Chevy Corvair, but unsure of year. Any help is appreciated. 
      Thanks!

      Dana Incorporated introduced its Victor Reinz Reinzosil room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone to North American customers at the recent AAPEX and SEMA shows in Las Vegas.
      “While Victor Reinz Reinzosil RTV silicone has been available for some time, it’s relatively new to the North American market and has quickly become a customer favorite for sealing surfaces in engines, transmissions, axles, cylinder liners and plastic housings,” said Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana. “This is the first time Dana has featured Reinzosil RTV silicone for light-duty vehicles at AAPEX and SEMA, and it was a very positive experience.  Customers told us they prefer it over the brand they have been using and that as a one-tube solution, it helps them reduce inventory and simplify the ordering process.”
      Victor Reinz Reinzosil sealant is resistant to fluids, including mineral oils and synthetic oils, lubricants, gasoline, diesel oil, greases, water and detergents, and is safe for all sensors. Available in 70-milliliter tubes, it is ideal for use on two-dimensional flat surfaces where there is a sealing gap, such as gasket intersections and components originally sealed with RTV by the manufacturer, including intake manifolds, valve covers and oil pans, according to the company.

      I’m trying to verify if a window regulator for a 1981 Chevy pick up will work on a 1973 Chevy pick up. Both with manual windows.

      So I had some problems with slippage during some of the hot days. Bought this 2014 chevy equinox AWD used with about 90k on it and I guess the tranny was never serviced. Drained and refilled the fluid in the transmission, which was only about 4 quarts or so (need to flush to get it all) and it was black. Did it again in a week or so to mix in some good fluid. Car ran alright but instead of a slippage, it started to develop a hard shift. Next day, started to drive it and it would all of a sudden rev out like its in neutral. Coasted the car to the side of the road and moved the shifter, but would not engage into drive or reverse. i shut the car off and restarted and then it would go into drive (electronic control) but after a few feet it would pop back into a neutral state with the shift indicator in drive.
