I have a slick 1963 Chevy Pickup for sale. Restoration cost 20k. The truck is maroon in color, looks awesome! Everywhere I go in the truck people stop and stare. The truck has a 327 under the hood (lots of chrome), 350 transmission, all leather custom interior, tilt bed, wood paneling along the bed, new shocks , new springs, new battery, all gauges work except speedometer and shows 39 miles on it, has cd player, recently installed exhaust pipes. I bought the truck from a guy who bought it from the original owner who spent over 20K on this truck. I have not done anything to the truck, what you see is what you get. Looks like someone fix the truck from the frame up, as you can see on the pics the entire frame has been primed and painted. Lots done to this truck, runs and drives great. Has a few chips on the paint here and there but nothing major. Rims have a bit of corrosion on them, not a lot though. Wood in bed is not treated and shows wear and cracking, may have to be replaced. Tilt bed works fine with switch behind driver seat. Lots of new parts. Wood railing comes off very easily if it is not your style. Has disc brakes in front and drums in the back. Any questions please feel free to ask, I will answer as best I can since I bought the truck like it sits. The truck is located in Memphis TN and buyer is responsible for shipping costs. I will require a $800 dollar deposit within 48 hours of end of auction. I do have a reserve set on this auction. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding. I will try to get a video of the truck soon.

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."

Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
If the 2013 Indy 500 were a movie it would be the one expected to win all the little statues come awards season, and if it were an athlete it would have made spectators watch in awe as it broke record after record. And this kind of talk comes after last year's race was considered one of the best ever - the last lap hijinks in 2012 and Takuma Sato's crash leading to a podium ceremony straight out of a Golden Globes tearjerker.

But this year's race delivered more than anyone expected, from the 250,000 fans to the commentators to the IndyCar series itself and, finally, to the guy who hopped through a two-mile window on Lap 197 to take the lead and keep it until the end.
It's been a little over a year and a half since General Motors first confirmed plans to offer a diesel-powered Chevrolet Cruze here in the United States, and we've now learned that the oil-burning compact will debut under the lights of the Chicago Auto Show in February. According to GM Authority, the Cruze Eco-D will be introduced as part of the entire 2014 model year Cruze range, set to go on sale in the second quarter of this year.
Earlier reports have indicated that the diesel Cruze will be able to achieve fuel economy numbers in the range of 50 miles per gallon. For comparison, the similarly sized Volkswagen Jetta TDI is rated at 30/42 mpg city/highway, but as we found out in our long-term test of the 2011 model, hitting 50 mpg was a piece of cake.
Official specifications will be released at the time of the 2014 Cruze's unveiling, though reports have stated that the sedan will be powered by a reworked version of the 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-four found in the Holden Cruze CDX overseas. In that application, the four-pot oil-burner produces 160 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque - increases of 20 hp and 29 lb-ft over the 2.0-liter engine used in VW's Jetta TDI.
