1957 CHEVY 150 HANDYMAN WAGONThis is a 1957 Chevrolet 150 Handyman Wagon. I bought this wagon years ago to do a frame-off restoration. Just haven't had the time or surplus cash to restore it. Last year some genius decided to use my car as scaffolding, which caused these huge dents in the roof. The car is pretty complete. There is a spare front fender and stainless/trim in the cargo area.
RAREST OF THE RARE!!!
The car is not "all-original". It originally came with a 6-cylinder and 3 on the tree, but now has a 327 V8 with a Muncie 4-speed. It does run and can be moved around to get it on a trailer. It does need a battery, but I will provide a 24-series battery once it sells and make sure it runs before you receive it. It will need floor pans and spare tire area pan. According to my paint/body person, who has been doing restorations for 30+ years, the roof is repairable. There is rust on the gutter line as shown in the pictures. Most of the dents from the "workers" can probably be pushed back out. There is some damage to one of the front fenders, but as I said above, there is a replacement fender in the cargo area. Hinges are good. Most of the chrome will need re-plating.
The car comes with a Vermont Certificate of Registration. Vermont does not title cars older than 15 years, so the registration should be sufficient to transfer the car in any state.
Local pickup only. Buyer to arrange shipping. Do not bid unless you intend to buy!!!
DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THE RAREST 1957 CHEVY!!! THERE WERE LESS OF THESE PRODUCED THAN THE CONVERTIBLES AND FAR LESS HAVE SURVIVED!!! THEY ARE VERY HARD TO FIND UNRESTORED!!!

The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.

That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.
Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).

It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.

The Chevrolet Volt hasn't yet gone on sale, but General Motors is looking at ways of expanding its electric vehicle lineup. Chevy, along with partner LG, is employing a group of all-electric cars in the form of the Cruze. The sedans are part of a demonstration fleet which is located in Seoul, South Korea and is being used to provide data in an electric vehicle research project. The goal is to gather information on driving patterns and charging behavior in addition to consumer acceptance.
The Cruze EVs, along with some Daewoo Lacetti Premieres EVs, are the first fleet of full-size electric vehicles and should provide invaluable information for The General. Staying full-size means not sacrificing cargo space, so the battery pack is mounted to the underbody, leaving the trunk area open for plenty recyclable, canvas grocery bags.
