Nice Original 1978 Chevy Silverado Short Box Stepside 4x4. This is a California Truck I bought 3 years ago. The previous owners claim the miles are original, but I have no documentation to support that, but it appears to be. The only reason I am selling is that I need the room and money to buy my son a car for high school.
400 small block (original)
Nice body and paint a couple dings and a few chips(minor details, it really shines up good)
No rust and no bondo that I can tell (it is very straight and very solid)
Nice original wood in bed (previous owner left a slide in camper on it so it stayed protected)
It has a cracked grille and windshield (common for the antenna windshield)
Seat has some rips and the passenger window crank broke off right at the time of listing(cheap to replace)
This truck runs like a top and always starts right up. It is fun to drive and is snappy with 373 geared rearend.
4 wheel drive works great! It has always been kept in my heated shop and never driven in the winter.
I will not accept "0" feedback bidders unless they have contacted me.
I urge you to come and inspect this vehicle (just email,text or call to set a time to see it)
This truck is sold as is where is and is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end this auction early at any time.
Reserve is low for this caliber of truck.
Payment: Down payment of $500.00 via PayPal within 48 hrs of auction close. Balance to be paid within 7 days of auctions close. Payment to be cash, cashiers check or bank to bank wire

Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.

Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
If you have about five minutes and you can't get enough information about the new 'Vette, then check out the videos posted below.
What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them.

That's giving headaches to marketing folks across the automotive industry. "It's tough. In 1985 there were about 75,000 names trademarked in the automotive space. Today there are 800,000," Chevrolet's head of marketing, Russ Clark, told Automotive News. Infiniti's president, Johan de Nysschen, echoed Clark's sentiment, saying, "The truth of the matter is, across the world, there is hardly a name or a letter that hasn't already been claimed by one car manufacturer or another. You can go through the alphabet - A, B, C and so forth - and you will quickly see that almost all available letters are taken."
What has that left automakers to do? Get creative. In the case of Infiniti, it made the controversial move to bring all of its cars' names into a new scheme, classifying them as Q#0 for cars and QX#0 for SUVs and crossovers. So the Infiniti G, which was available as the G25 and G37, is now the Q50. The FX37 and FX50 are now the QX70.
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."
