I own a restoration shop and this is a car I am selling for a customer. It is a 1965 Buick Skylark convertible with Grand Sport emblems. He has owned it for about 20 years and all the modifications he has done over that time frame. As seen by the black and gold plates, it has always been a California car so there are no rust issues. The rockers, floors and trunk pan are very clean. The body is real straight and shows very minor touch ups prior to this paint which is a real dark green. There are two areas with scratches in the finish and these are shown in the close up photos. One tire came apart and scratched the left outer wheel well. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would say the paint and body are still a strong 8+ maybe a low 9. The car is really nice and a little detailing and a good polish would help. The engine is a 1970 Buick 455 with dual quads. It runs great and plenty of performance. The transmission is a Turbo 400. The rear end is probably a 3.36 ratio. He had the hood scoop installed to clear a larger air filter. A stock hood is included if you want it. The wheels are 15 inch where the stock were 14's. Super nice driver at highway speeds or around town. A couple of things it needs are the convertible top hydraulics either need new rams or the pump replaced. The rams are disconnected from the top so it could be lowered manually. The shifter is the factory floor shift and because it was originally a two speed auto, you can not drop the trans to the low range. These are things I can fix for you if you wish without too much cost. Overall a real tight daily driver that runs well, drives well and shows well. If you need more photos or have any questions, please call Bruce weekdays at 916-652-6852 or use the "Ask the Seller a Question" feature in this ad. To see and drive the car, I am about 15 miles east of Sacramento just off Highway 80 going towards Reno. Thank you.

A day after Ford announced it was scaling back the complimentary maintenance program for its Lincoln brand, General Motors has gone in the completely opposite direction, offering most of its 2014 lineup with free maintenance. Since 2011, Cadillac models have all come with a four-year/50,000-mile complimentary maintenance program, but Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles will now come standard with free maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles for the 2014 model year.

The program will give vehicle owners and lessees free oil changes, tire rotations and 27-point inspections following the recommended maintenance schedule laid out in each vehicle's owner's manual. We contacted GM to see which vehicles were eligible for the program, and a spokesperson got back to us with the following comment:
"All 2014 models are eligible, it's just that the included services vary by model, e.g., Spark EV would not need oil changes, Corvettes don't recommend tire rotations."
If you own an Apple iPhone or Android device, perhaps you've been tempted to jailbreak or root it. This process gives you access to the the software's code, and can be used to make minor or drastic changes to its operating system. CarKnow, a company in Boston, is working applying a similar concept to the automobile.

Translogic recently took a look inside CarKnow to see just how it can tweak the computers inside a car and what sort of things can be done. As our transportation tech sister site explains, CarKnow basically created a digital duplicate of their Buick Regal in the cloud, while harvesting data generated to create custom apps and infiltrate the deepest function of their test car.
And before you freak out about people maliciously taking over your car, CarKnow's founder, Josh Siegel, stresses that it isn't quite so easy as driving up alongside someone. Take a look at the full video below to see just what it's like to jailbreak a car.
As we continue to put together all the data for the year-end edition of By The Numbers, General Motors has announced that it sold more than a million vehicles in the US last year that achieved at least 30 miles per gallon on the highway. More impressively, GM managed this feat using multiple strategies including small vehicle size, turbocharged engines and hybrid or plug-in technologies across four brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC) accounting for 13 separate models. This number will grow even more in 2013 thanks to cars like the all-electric Spark, the diesel Cruze, the range-extended Cadillac ELR and the Buick Encore compact CUV.
GM's small car sales were up 39 percent last year helping to attain this million-sales mark for 30-mpg models, and almost 40 percent of all GM sales consisted of cars with fuel-efficient I4 engines. In regards to more advanced means of improving fuel economy, GM says that it plans on having 500,000 vehicles with "some form of electrification" on the road by 2017.
