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!

Chevy Corvette gets Valet Mode with Performance Data Recorder [w/video]

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 09:00:00 EST

For the 2015-model-year, Chevrolet introduces Valet Mode for the Corvette, an enhancement to the Performance Data Recorder (PDR) already available and to your peace of mind. The PDR already captures 720p HD video with a windshield-mounted camera, records interior audio with a cabin microphone and gathers telemetry data using GPS, saving the data to an SD card in the glovebox. You can then watch your track-day antics with various information overlays on the center console screen.
Valet Mode will let you hit 'Replay' when your car gets pulled up front smelling vaguely of fricasseed clutch. Turned on by entering a four-digit code, it also locks the interior storage spaces and turns off the infotainment system. It can't be turned off until the code is re-entered. There's a press release below with more information as well as a video that explains how it works, with the obligatory dig at the 'Vette's biggest foe.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible is the track car for sun worshippers

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:11:00 EST



Supercharged, 6.2-liter V8? Check. Seven-speed manual? Check. Obsession with weight? Check.
What did you expect when Chevrolet said it was bringing a new Corvette variant to the 2014 New York Auto Show? Maybe a sticker and trim package, like the C6 Corvette Grand Sport or a tie-in deal like the Black Widow car from Chicago? On the opposite end, maybe there was an even more hardcore Z06 waiting in the wings. Who knew?

2015 Chevy Tahoe gets Police Patrol Vehicle treatment

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:29:00 EST

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.
