Everyone says 'cleanest', 'rust free', etc.  Well let me tell you about mine.  I am the 3rd owner, according to the guy that I bought it from who owned it around 20 years.  These trucks have typical rust in the cab corners, rockers, bed, windshield, driprails, etc.  This truck does NOT!  Check out the pics--more available upon request.  The pic of the passenger rocker looks like bubbles--no, no -- it is a reflection of gravel in the paint that the truck is parked on!!

This is a factory A/C cab.  I don't know why they left it off when they but the rebuilt motor in it (early 90's) 12000 miles ago.  It happens all the time.  I have most of the parts to bolt back on.
It sits a little lower than stock on probably the original wheels, decent radials with rings and caps.
It appears to be 90% original paint.  Original owner repainted one upper bedside because of a scratch, and there has been some touch-up.  Mostly many, many years ago.  There is a mark in the hood where the second owner took off a gaudy hood ornament :)
The 126k appears original, but of course not guaranteed.  I judge it by the receipts in the glovebox, the brake pedal wear, how nicely the doors shut, the little used bed.  The vent window and door windows work perfectly.
This truck runs, drives, shifts as good as it looks.  I have had a dozen of these over the years and its original condition is astounding to me.  It has obviously been well cared for and probably garaged.  I wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere, especially if I hooked up the a/c on this little Chev.
Everything else on the Chevy works including the interior AND exterior domelight and backup lights!

This is a cool patina shop truck.  This truck was actually owned by the "Arrow Garage" owner. (sign pictured)  I painted the logos in rat rod style on the blue 67 and would be willing to duplicate it on the 72.  I bought the 72 after I sold the 67, not knowing about that little bit of history until I was driving the 72 away!!  

That 67 I sold a couple years ago on Ebay and the guy and his wife drove it home to Arizona!

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:27:00 EST

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.

Are you the 2014 Corvette Grand Sport?

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 15:28:00 EST

When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette Grand Sport.
The first and most obvious tip-off that something is up with this 'Vette revolves around those silver stripes. Obviously the stripes themselves don't necessarily denote a new model. However, when Chevy recently launched its "colorizer" website for the Stingray, there was no provision made for racing stripes - solid colors only.
Grand Sport exhibit number two is actually an incriminating lack of badges. The production Corvettes we've seen to date have all carried Stingray badges on their fenders, just behind the vent. The car seen in these images has no such badges, which is an intriguing omission on an car that looks like a production-spec vehicle otherwise.

These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.
CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
