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!

Race Recap: 2013 Twelve Hours of Sebring, cakewalk up front, grindfest out back [w/spoilers]

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 09:33:00 EST

This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.
Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...

Chevy Camaro is a good sport, wishes Ford Mustang Happy 50th

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:45:00 EST

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.

GM recalling 250,000 SUVs over door electronics

Mon, 20 Aug 2012 11:00:00 EST

After a door-fire investigation that dates back to February, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially announced a recall today that affects around 250,000 General Motors SUVs for a faulty driver's door module. The recall applies to the Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X from the 2006 and 2007 model years, as well as the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL for vehicles sold and/or registered in the Snow Belt.
Road salt use in these midwestern and northern states can lead to corrosion of the driver's door module on these GMT360 and GMT370 vehicles, which allows water to come in contact with the circuit board. If shorted out, the vehicle's power door locks and power windows will not work, and could possibly lead to overheating and, in some circumstances, a fire. No official word on how many total vehicles caught on fire, but back in June, 28 fires had been reported to the government agency. A fix for the problem is still being worked out, but all affected vehicle owners will be notified by GM.
