Up for auction is this beautiful all original 1961 Chevrolet Apache 10 pickup truck. A true barn find & she is in great shape!. These trucks are very rare and getting harder and harder to come by, especially in this condition. It is a really clean straight truck without a bunch of dents and dings like many of these old farm trucks have. Also, it has a very clean interior with no rips or tears in the seat. The paint still takes wax and shines up well, as you can see in the photos. I don't see any body work in this truck and only a couple minor rust spots. One in the passenger door about the size of a quarter, and a small section just under the bowtie on the hood.(see pics)
The truck not only looks good it runs, drives, and stops just as it should. We just installed a new set of BF Goodrich tires and did a full tune up which includes the following:
-New brake pads & wheel cylinders
-New Master Cylinder
-New points, cap & rotor button
-New plugs & plug wires
-Changed all fluids engine oil, transmission, & rear end which we also replaced all the seals on as well
Everything on this truck Works!! lights, signals, gauges, dash lights, even right down to the horn. She is completely road worthy ready to drive anywhere. It was just taken on a road trip to the Rod Run in TN 400+ miles roundtrip with no problems. I have included a video link of the truck starting and running so you can see & here it for yourself:

As you can see in the pics & video this is a turn key truck that needs nothing, but a new owner. Please email or call me with any questions you may have. Jeremy 864-940-4576

Thanks 4 looking and good luck!
The Cadillac Escalade has been at or near the top of most-stolen and insurance-loss lists for more than seven years, until it dropped to number six earlier this year. In 2011 it was fitted with a host of new security features to address its easy-to-override features and that has brought the number of thefts down, but when eight of the ten most stolen rides are large SUVs from General Motors, no one will argue that something else needs to be done.
Thus, GM has fitted this same theft-deterring tech to the 2015 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon. The Suburban and Tahoe will get the steering lock that the Escalade and Yukon already get, plus bolted-down third-row seats to deter thefts like this, stronger door lock cylinders and shields, and side-cut keys to inhibit picking.
Additional security measures in a Theft Protection Package can be purchased for $395, consisting of sensors on the greenhouse glass and interior, an incline/tilt sensor and added "key control systems" to make it more difficult for the men in black balaclavas to steal what you bought.
The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.
Super Storm Sandy took out a lot of automobiles in its path of destruction through the Northeast last October. The number surpassed 250,000 at last count, and a few of those were owned by Chevrolet - cars either sitting on dealership lots or waiting at port to be shipped off. Rendered unsellable by the water damage inflicted by Sandy, these vehicles were facing the crusher. But Chevy didn't send them there.
Instead, Chevy had a better idea: It will be donating 300 of these vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders at Guardian Centers in Perry, GA. Chevy is the official automotive partner of Guardian Centers, which is an 830-acre facility that trains first responders in disaster preparedness. Junked cars are practically a consumable commodity there, where a full-size cityscape simulator gives trainees an entire urban center in which to train for all sorts of rescue operations and disaster scenarios.
Chevy says its particular vehicles will be used "in conjunction with role players for wide area searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualty exercises." While grim scenarios all, we're certainly glad there are people out there preparing for the unexpected. While a zombie apocalypse isn't officially on the list of potential disasters to prepare for, when the virus hits, we'll be hot-footing it to Perry, GA to hang with these guys and gals.
