6LE Designs Creates New Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z

The Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z isn’t around anymore, but a decade ago it was an iconic part of Chevy’s racecar lineup. Now, it’s on its way to classic status, but it still recalls Chevy’s impressive racing heritage. In fact, it’s such an important part of racing history that 6Liter Eater Designs (6LE), a muscle car customization business, has reimagined it.

6LE took a modern sixth-generation Chevy Camaro and altered it to include plenty of IROC-Z design features, like the exterior black stripes, a COPO Camaro hood, and a range of packages that boost the horsepower to 1,100 with the help of a Whipple supercharger. The goal, according to 6LE, was to create what the Camaro IROC-Z would look like today if Chevy was still making it.

The 6LE Camaro IROC-Z is so powerful that the design company will hold classes teaching buyers how to drive it safely. 6LE also plans to hold yearly races, echoing the history of the IROC series and benefiting charities.

The Camaro IROC series may not be in production today, but you can buy the latest Camaro at Stalker Chevrolet. Give us a call today to find out more or take a test drive in this iconic muscle car.

Tips for Tailgating: Enjoying Football Season the Right Way

Tips for Tailgating
Tips for Tailgating

Football season has started, which means more and more drivers will be tailgating before the games begin. There’s nothing more enjoyable than firing up the grill, having some drinks, playing games, and hanging out with other diehard sports fans. That’s why we’ve put together these tips for tailgating that’ll help you make this year’s tailgating season more enjoyable than ever.

First, according to ABC, one of the most important things to do is mark your territory. In other words, get to the stadium early to find a great parking spot and be sure to mark your perimeter. You can attach balloons to your mirrors or lay down rugs to show others where you’re going to be located.

If you have the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you’ll have plenty of space for supplies. Nevertheless, you may have trouble keeping hot food warm without wasting your battery on an accessory. You can get past this issue by turning an ordinary cooler into a food warmer. Simply wrap four bricks in foil and put them in an oven heated to 450 degrees. After lining the bottom of a cooler with towels and putting on oven mitts, you can put the heated bricks in the cooler for an impromptu oven.

Finally, bring supplies to celebrate your dedication to your team. Bring extra shirts or jerseys for friends who leave theirs at home, and be sure to bring some games. Corn hole or ladder ball are popular, and a football is a must for any tailgating adventure.

Looking for the perfect truck or SUV for tailgating? Test drive any one of the 2018 Chevy models at Stalker Chevrolet today.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Diesel Details

There are a number of admirable things about the new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. For instance, its smaller, maneuverable size and roomy cabin provide the best of both worlds. It also features a generous list of standard features, like the Chevy MyLink infotainment system and 7-inch touch screen. But, one of the most remarkable things about the new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is its engine lineup, which includes something unusual—a diesel option.

 

Here are what 2018 Chevrolet Equinox diesel details we know thus far.

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox with the diesel engine has not yet been tested by the EPA. However, Chevrolet is estimating that this little crossover could get up to 39 mpg highway when it’s equipped with the turbo-diesel engine. That would put the Chevrolet Equinox at the head of its segment in fuel efficiency, which is exciting news.

Not only do we expect the turbo-diesel powered Chevy Equinox to be efficient, but we also think it will deliver a fun ride. The diesel engine boasts 240 lb-ft of torque, so acceleration should be consistently responsive.

The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will be available with its all-new turbo-diesel engine at Stalker Chevrolet later this year. We hope you’ll join us for a test drive of perhaps the most exciting new vehicle in the crossover/SUV segment.

School Lunch Tips for Packing the Best Meal

School Lunch Tips
School Lunch Tips

It’s an age-old question: how do you prepare a healthy school lunch that your kids will actually eat? With these simple school lunch tips from Stalker Chevrolet, you can have your kids eating well all year long.

 

Plan Ahead

If you want to send your kids to school with something they’ll enjoy, you’ve got to be realistic. Don’t send them your favorite lunch. Instead, talk with them once a month to see what they’re interested in trying. Bring the kids grocery shopping with you so they can pick out the vegetables and proteins they like.

 

Prep Ahead

Most of the things you’ll be sending along in lunches can be prepared ahead over the weekend. For instance, you can chop up veggies, wash fruit, or make a batch of pasta, soup, or rice. Get the simple stuff out of the way and your morning rush will be all the easier.

 

Keep the Kids Involved

Their job isn’t over when you leave the grocery store. If you have plenty of fresh options to choose from, your kids will have fun putting together sandwiches and snacks that they know they will enjoy. Their thoughtful lunch will be the talk of the cafeteria, and you’ll never find a backpack with another rejected sandwich in it again.

Fall Means Football, School, and Hot Air Balloon Days

Fall is for football. Simple enough, but lots of other events take place in autumn.

For just about every school-aged child in Iowa, fall means friends and foes. Friends that they may not have seen for three months as they enjoyed their summer vacation away from their foes, teachers (we kid, we love teachers).

Hawkeye football fans were on the edge of their seats a bit more than we would have appreciated in a week one opener against UNI. But a win is a win, and now it’s on to Ball State.

NFL and fantasy football fans everywhere are rejoicing, as the NFL kicks off with matchup between to NFC championship contenders; Green Bay at Seattle.  The last time the two faced off at CenturyLink Field we were treated to 12-14 game that ended in controversy. Thankfully that controversy lead to the return of the regular officials.+

In Creston, fall bring Hot Air Balloon Days. Three days of entertainment, food, community involvement, and balloon races.
Whatever fall means for you, we hope you enjoy it. A season where the heat of summer cools and crisp air fills the night sky.
