Not a perfect show car but a nice solid driver with lots of new parts and work done. Does have flaws here and there but a good driver or could be taken to the next level with a little bodywork and new paint and be super nice, but life is short and this is the kind of car that can be driven and enjoyed as-is.:\


THE GOOD:

-Nice, solid body with very minimal rust.

-Very dependable car that can be driven anywhere and drives like a dream.

-Very nice White Tuck and roll style interior.

-Alpine CD player mounted in glove box with hidden infinity speakers under dash.

-350/350 crate motor with very few miles (New 5 yrs. ago, oil has been changed every 6 months regardless of miles with ZDDP additive, Valvoline oil and High quality oil filters.)

-Pertronix Flamethrower electronic distributor

-Power disc brakes in front.

-Front end just rebuilt with new poly bushings, springs, and ball joints.

-New rear leaf springs and poly bushing 2 yrs ago. (Originals included.)

-Floor pans (Original) in great shape, only two small patches needed about 4" long on the end of two of the braces, very easy fix.

-NEW front tires and wheels, rears are a couple years old but still lots of tread.

-All glass good factory green tinted EZ-EYE Originals.

-Period correct 1957 Buick grill (Center bar removes for clean, sinister look.)

-Good sounding dual exhaust.

-Chromed radio and clock delete plates on dash.


THE BAD:

-Wiper motor not installed but included

-Heater blower currently not working (Could just be a fuse, haven't checked.)

-Needs two minor places fixed (patched) on rear braces.

-Needs rear bumper re-chromed or replaced

-Driver's rear window regulator getting weak

-Could possibly use an alignment, drives great but hasn't been checked since front end was rebuilt last week.

-Has flaws associated with being a 60 year old driver. NOT A SHOW CAR.

Read This: Auto Extremist advocates for Corvette as brand with multiple models [w/poll]

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 19:15:00 EST

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.
Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?

Chevy might've pulled out of NASCAR if it weren't for new Gen 6 car

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 13:31:00 EST

We've been on the fence with NASCAR for some time now. On one hand, it's some of the closest racing anywhere in motorsports, with actual passing and door-handle-to-door-handle action as a matter of course. But on the other, it's become template racing - a personality-driven sport more about the drivers than any sort of loyalty to a particular automaker. The Car Of Tomorrow format really rammed that message home, with a racecar's identity coming down to little more than headlamp stickers slapped on the nose. That's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, but we've wondered for some time what's in it for the automakers, who pay big money to stay in a series that has had little increasingly little do with street car sales, let alone innovation.
Apparently General Motors was beginning to wonder the same thing. In a new ESPN report, Rick Hendrick, team owner of Hendrick Motorsports, suggests that GM would have seriously considered leaving NASCAR if it wasn't for the move away from the COT to the new Gen 6 racer. According to Hendrick, GM North America boss Mark Reuss spearheaded the charge away from the 2007 COT and toward a racecar with clearer automaker ties - cars like the new Chevrolet SS racer shown above.

Now, if we could just get more rear-wheel drive V8 coupes into showrooms....

GM already raising prices on 2014 Silverado and Sierra pickups

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 14:00:00 EST

General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
