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!

If you can't wait for the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Hennessey says they will have you covered. The Texas-based company has announced it will offer a spate of upgrades for the 2014 Corvette ranging from a range of bolt-on options all the way up to a 1,000-horsepower, twin-turbo system. Buyers can start with a cold air intake, cat-back exhaust or stainless steel long-tube headers, but Hennessey says it will also offer up three stages of forced induction mayhem should those bits and baubles not provide enough thrust.

Those choices start with a supercharger system good for up to 700 hp, though Hennessey will gladly ditch the blower in favor of two turbos. Doing so will spin the crank to the tune of 800 horsepower all the way up to a certifiably ludicrous 1,000 ponies. There's no word on how much these tricks will cost you - or when they will be available, as we're guessing they haven't gotten their hands on the car yet - but you can head over to the Hennessey site to drop them a line if you're curious.
It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.

That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.
But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.
