This 1970 Chevrolet C10 has been garaged for the last 8 years. The paint was done just before that, as well as the interior. Everything functions as it should and the truck drives nicely. The paint job is a fairly good one except for occasional runs in the clear near the bottom and it needs repair to the driver's side cab corner. There are various small flaws that require very close inspection to see. This pickup is not a show truck & isn't intended to be. It's for driving and enjoying. I was going to repair the flaws on the lower part of the body and have the local Line-X shop paint their tough bed liner material from the lower body line down around the bottom of the sheet metal, but decided to leave it be for the next owner to decide what to do with. Not everybody likes the look of the lower parts being "armor plated" (4x4's look good to me with it & it's practical), so it remains as-is. The engine is a 350 and the transmission is a TH350. The exhaust is good, & the truck doesn't need anything on the mechanical side. It does need an antenna and if you'd like side mirrors you'll have to add them. If you'd like to arrange for an inspection prior to bidding, I'd encourage you to do so for your own peace of mind. I've taken pictures of those areas where these pickups are known to have problems and have made the best attempt I can to fairly represent this pickup. Feel free to message with any questions and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks!

A couple weeks ago, we watched a Chevrolet Silverado get dominated by a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty in a fullsize pickup tug-of-war, but in that truck's defense, Chevy's Vortec gas engine was no match for the torquey Cummins turbo diesel. For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a Duramax-powered Silverado HD takes on Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.

Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the Dodge versus Chevy video, with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backwards. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.
It just goes to show, though, that big tires, bolt-on fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect when the Touareg V10 TDI has towed a Boeing 747 in the past?
It seems to be commonplace that when a new Corvette is in development, rumors swirl about a possible mid-engine layout. As is the case of Chevy's most recent C7 Corvette, these rumors never pan out.

In any case, the idea for a 'Vette with an engine mounted behind the driver can probably all be traced back to a single car, the 1964 XP-819 prototype. Built as an "engineering exercise" back in 1964, the prototype was designed with a rear-mounted engine. History tells us that the idea of a rear-engine Corvette fizzled, and the XP-819 was eventually cut up into pieces and stored at a shop in Daytona Beach, FL.
After sitting for untold years, a restoration project started on the car, and while it isn't yet fully completed, the current owner of the car, Mid America Motorworks, will have the car on display at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance as a "driveable chassis" with hopes of having a fully completed car ready to bring to next year's show.
Where else would you expect the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to show up first? Although this time it isn't exactly in Jay Leno's Garage, Leno instead playing an away game at Brown's Classic Auto in Scottsdale, Arizona. Nor does Leno drive the car, instead taking an 11-minute walkaround of the new American sports car with General Motors design head Ed Welburn, the same man who recently brought by a string of classic Corvettes to the talk show host's California compound.
It is, admittedly, a love-fest for the American sports car now featuring 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, but one that also features admissions about previous Corvette seats like "they were kinda rough," and the explanation that labeling the coupe "Stingray" means not having to call it "the base Corvette." On top of that, Welburn also explains the proper application of the term "dashboard." You can watch it all in the video below.
