 1955 Chevy Belair 2 door sedan. We have owned this car for 12 years and have had lots of trouble free fun with it.  It runs and drives great, it is a very sharp looking vehicle that draws a lot of attention. There are a few imperfections, chips & bubbles in the paint from the elements of driving. Over the time that we have owned it, we have done a lot of upgrades including: Laminated tinted side glass, new windshield, all new dash trim, shoulder harness seat belts great for safety and for kids car seats, power brakes with front disc, front drop spindles and springs,  rear 3" lowering blocks, Billet Specialties hustler 17" rims with Michelin Pilot Sport tires, this car has an incredible stance which sets it apart from most others,  power steering with 605 box, new Holly carburetor, new radiator, completely re-wired the vehicle for dependability, rebuilt rear-end, the radio is Custom Autosound AM/FM cassette made to fit the original dash (no hacking). Car was rebuilt in 1992 with interior which is still in good shape (see pictures).  Engine is a 327 which was rebuilt in 1992 and runs very strong and is approximately 330 horsepower.  Transmission is a turbo 350, rebuilt in 1992 with a shift kit and drives good. The paint and body where professionally re-done in 1992 by Dave Mathison Street Rods and Customs and still look sharp today.  We have had lots of fun with this vehicle of the many years that we have owned it, but it is time to let someone else enjoy it.

Why the Corvette is Chevrolet's billion-dollar baby

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 09:59:00 EST

Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.
But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible headed for Geneva debut

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 17:29:00 EST

While most of the world is still coming down from all the hype surrounding the debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, we're already looking to the future. And according to Autoweek, the next chapter in the C7 story will unfold at the Geneva Motor Show in March. That's right, General Motors is reportedly using the Swiss stage as its venue to debut the Corvette Stingray convertible.
If this strikes you as odd, you aren't alone. After all, with a car that's such an American icon, we'd fully expect Chevrolet to unveil it here on our shores in either Chicago or New York. But according to Autoweek, GM is looking to boost export sales of its halo car, and since the C7 was engineered to compete with the world's best and brightest, showing it off in Geneva is somewhat of a smart move. What's more, those with sharp memories will recall that GM used the Geneva expo to debut the sixth-generation C6 Corvette convertible back in March 2004, so there's also a precedent.
Details surrounding the Corvette Stingray convertible are still slim, though we fully expect the 6.2-liter V8 and choice of either six-speed automatic or seven-speed manual transmissions to carry over unchanged. Prototypes spotted on the road showed the car fitted with a cloth convertible roof, as well.

Next Corvette ZR1 to get 700 horsepower?

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 18:30:00 EST

Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
