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 U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."

Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.

We've just received an early peek at the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible here at the Geneva Motor Show. General Motors was kind enough to let us attend the final dress-rehearsal for its press conference scheduled for tomorrow's opening media day, and we've come away with a good look at the droptop C7 in person.

In the metal, the new Corvette Convertible seems somehow less avant-garde than the Coupe, even in Z51 Performance Package guise. That's not necessarily a bad thing - more of an observation. That initial impression may be because the C7's new greenhouse is one of its most prominent departures from Corvettes past. While we didn't get to see the top erected, there's no rear side window in the stock images that Chevy has already released, suggesting the C7 convertible's profile will look a lot like its C6 predecessor. And with the new power tonneau cover in place, there are also no rear ducts that come as part of the Z51 package (they've been moved under the car).
As with its predecessor, the tonneau is a handsome double-bubble piece, and the body-color "waterfall" element into the cabin between the seats has made it to the new model as well. Thus, the overall look with the top down should be a bit more familiar to prior-gen C6 owners - if you're one of those put off by the C7's new shape, you'll probably appreciate the convertible bodystyle more than the coupe.
After months of speculation, Chevrolet has finally revealed the official starting price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The base MSRP for the 450-horsepower Stingray Coupe will be $51,995, while the Stingray Convertible will go for $56,995 (*both prices include a $995 destination fee). This means that the price increase from 2013 to 2014 is just $1,400 for the coupe and $2,395 for the convertible - pretty modest increases considering the upgrade in specifications. Of course, neither price accounts for the sort of dealer markup that might grace early C7 window stickers, especially since less than a third of all Chevrolet dealers will be allocated Corvette models to sell at the car's launch.
Now, these prices are for the base car, so if you're wondering how much a fully loaded Stingray will run, Chevy has given us a good indication of that as well. The coupe we saw on display at the Detroit Auto Show (shown above), for example, would run $73,360 including options such as the $2,800 Z51 Performance Package, $2,495 competition sport seats and the $1,795 Magnetic Ride Control option - just to name a few. Stepping up to the 3LT trim level that brings a full leather interior will run an extra $8,005 over the base price.
While $20,000 in options may seem like a lot, this "as-tested" price still has the C7 competitively priced against rival coupes like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. Speaking of price comparisons, Chevrolet also points out that the C7 Stingray Z51 costs $2,200 less than the C6 Grand Sport while delivering better acceleration (0-60 mph in less than four seconds) and improved track performance (including more than 1 g in cornering).
