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!

Who would have ever thought there'd be a day where people are able to skip television commercials only to go to websites to watch them later? Such is the joy of a DVR and YouTube. AdWeek tabulated the 20 most-watched ads on YouTube, and found that nine were car-related including eight coming from automakers.

Volkswagen continued its Star Wars theme with two ads in the top 20, including the highest-ranking car commercial The Bark Side spot at number three with almost 18 million views, which doesn't even have a single car in it. Some of our favorites are from Chrysler with Clint Eastwood in It's Halftime in America and House Arrest with Charlie Sheen for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Chevrolet, Honda, Audi and Toyota were the other automakers in the top 20, but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least mention one of the coolest ads on the list, the Hot Wheels corkscrew jump.
Of all the car videos, only the Fiat ad wasn't played during a Super Bowl. Check out all eight videos - in order - after the jump. Nike took the top spot with its My Time is Now ad that has been seen online more than 20 million times with Pepsi's Uncle Drew posted up in the runner-up; some of the other videos include four Old Spice commercials and an ad in which Snoop Dogg is pedaling Hot Pockets.
There's not much to see here, but if you're one of those waiting for the reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, above is the teaser image that Chevrolet posted on its Facebook page. We've seen the truck in form-fitting camo before, and even less can be made out here beyond those seriously punchy Silverado-esque fenders and the knowledge that the projector-beam headlamps teased previously do indeed work. We'll have to wait until Thursday for a full perusal of the "bold exterior design" and "careful attention given to every detail" we've been promised.

Gathering intel and rumors, magnesium and aluminum contribute to the Silverado's weight loss plan, the purported "High Country" top-tier trim will contribute to luxury pickup truck competition and profit margins and the next-generation small-block V8 will contribute to improved fuel economy. On the engine note, there have been rumors of available V6 engines, and when Facebook user John Jones asked "Where's your answer to that EcoBoost Chevy?", the Bowtie replied "stay tuned on the 13th. We think you'll be pleased...".
Along with the "Raise the Bar" tag, Chevrolet says of the Silverado, "You asked, we delivered." You can watch the reveal live on Chevrolet's Facebook page at 9:30 am EST, this Thursday, December 13. The GMC Sierra 1500 will also be there, and we'll see both in person at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
The current wait time for a new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is well, not short. With word of a strike at the Bowling Green, KY factory responsible for seventh-generation sports car, though, that wait time could end up growing substantially.
Now, a strike is still a ways off. UAW Local 2164, which represents the 800 workers responsible for screwing the Corvette together, is set to vote on authorizing a strike today, but even if the employees give the action a go, it's far from a sure thing. According to The Tennessean, both regional and national union officials would need to put their stamp of approval on strike action.
"The membership has to vote to strike, but it's just a step in the process," said Gary Casteel, the UAW's Region 8 director and one of the people that would need to authorize a strike action. Casteel told The Tennessean, "It's purely a local situation, though. They are having some issues with the local management."
