Up for bid today is a very easy project. This is a 1965 chevy stepside 2wd pickup truck. This truck runs and drives well, with a little more bodywork and paint, it could make a very nice piece. All of the rust was cut out of the cab and replaced with new metal. The floor pans have been molded and painted both underneath and inside. The original frame has been boxed and molded as well, and shot with a metallic silver base/clear. The truck rests on a set of 20” KMC wheels with good rubber. The wheels were powder coated silver at one time, and look good for a driver. Powered by a carbureted 307 small block chevy engine, coupled to a 3 speed manual transmission, the truck will run and drive good. It sounds nice with dual exhaust and glasspacks. The cab of the truck has already had all major repair done and was shot in a rootbeerish brown metallic color. The body has since gotten a few small dings and scratches. The bed is in red oxide primer, still needing some bodywork. The fiberglass bed cover was modified to fit the truck and looks awesome on it, although it could still use some bodywork as well. Hard wood and polished stainless look nice being used as the bed floor, along with harley Davidson brake lights out back. The inside of the cab is two-toned the rootbeerish color and silver metallic. A pair of bucket seats fit nicely, but could use covers to match. The truck does have a cd player in it with one speaker wired up for a little sound. Loads of new rubber keep the truck tight and dry. It does need an alignment and the tires balanced. A lot of time, hard work, and money has already been spent on this very nice driver. Loss of interest, bills, and other projects have lead to the point of selling this wonderful truck. It has a clear title ready to transfer. This truck is being sold as-is with no warranties or guarantees due to being used and the age. Please feel free to ask any questions prior to bidding. Any potential buyers are encouraged to come see the truck in person as well as test drive. A $500 non-refundable deposit is required within 48 hours of the ending of the auction, with the balance to be paid in full in cash upon pickup. I cannot/will not ship, that is the buyer’s responsibility. Thanks for looking!
THIS TRUCK IS FOR SALE LOCALLY ALSO, SO I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE AUCTION AT ANY TIME!
the title says exceeds mechanical limits, so I assume the mileage isn't correct

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).
Full Disclosure: in my younger days, I loved nothing more than tormenting passengers with my behind-the-wheel hijinks. Once, after a particularly artful handbrake turn on a two-lane at around 50 miles per hour, I left one backseat occupant crying in their own lap. This isn't necessarily something to be proud of, but it gives you a glimpse into why it is that I find this ad from Pepsi so damn disappointing. The premise is beautiful. Take NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, give him a disguise and set him loose upon some unsuspecting used car dealer. Hilarity ensues.

Except that this Pepsi Max commercial is so obviously staged, it can't help but feel like some ham-fisted marketing fail. From the strategically placed aftermarket cupholder mounted mid-dash for the hidden camera to the fact that the supposed dealer Camaro is displayed as a 2009 model (Hint: Chevrolet didn't make any), this clip is about as organic as a Twinkie. Still, we would never turn down a chance to watch Gordon thrash on a rental-spec coupe - only problem is, he probably didn't even do the driving himself. Check it out below.
Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
