1957 Chevrolet 2 Dr. Hardtop Custom Rod
I am proud to list this 57 Bel Air custom rod. It is a wonderful driving and well equipped ride. It was built with nice components and thought out and assembled very well. This 57 Bel Air has power steering, power brakes(disc front - drum rear) air conditioning, and an automatic transmission with overdrive. It was built for comfortable and dependable driving with long trips in mind. At 70 mph the tach reads 2,200 rpm and has great passing acceleration. The engine has less than 2,000 miles on it. The car was built about 5 years according to the previous owner who installed this almost new engine. The floors, inner rockers, body braces, and trunk pan are all solid and there is no under coat on the under carriage. The body is solid and nice, bright work is nice and the bumpers appear to have been replated recently. All of the lights, horn, instruments, wipers, stereo, and windows work. This Bel Air was born in built in Atlanta and was born a V-8 car, VC vin #.
This cool ride has an almost 350 cid Chevy engine with a Edlebrock 4bbl. carb, K&N air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, ceramic coated headers, billet valve covers, billet pulleys, chrome alternator, aluminum radiator with over flow tank, flex flan and electric fan, power steering, power brakes with disc on front, 200R4 transmission with overdrive and the stock drive shaft, new front shocks & rear air shocks, Vintage air conditioning and heater set up, electric wiper motor, 21/2" exhaust with flow master type mufflers, exhaust is all welded (no clamps), 17" American Racing Hopster polished aluminum wheels (matching spare wheel in the trunk) new Riken Raptor tires (245/45 ZR17 on front) (255/50 ZR17 on rear) LED tail lamps, and much more. To much $$ to count. Buy one already built and ready to go and not have to wait a year or two to build one. Spring is just around the corner.
The interior is very nice. It is styled like the original, it is vinyl with cloth inserts. It has 4 sets of seat belts for safety. The dash and gauges are all original and has a modern 3 gauge set mounted under the dash and a tachometer mounted on the steering column. It has a custom audio radio, am-fm, cassette and mp3 compatible deck in the dash that fits like the original with no modifying, It has 2- 6x9 clarion speakers mounted under the rear package tray. It has a nice custom steering wheel that fits the looks of the car well, medium tinted glass, 4 Chevrolet rubber floor mats, The air and heat work very well for driving year round.

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.
'Tis the season... for road salt. And with that, comes rust. And what does rust bring? Well, for Ford and General Motors, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation. According to The Detroit News, NHTSA is looking into potential recalls issues with Chevrolet Express vans and Ford Freestar minivans.

The feds have received five complaints that rust has caused leaking fuel filler pipes on 2003 Express vans. Separately, seven complaints have been filed over excessive rust in the rear wheel wells of 2004 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans. The Freestar and Monterey went out of production in 2007. Neither issue has resulted in any crashes or injuries, according to the report.
We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.
