PLEASE DO NOT BID ON MY TRUCK UNLESS YOU ARE A SERIOUS BUYER. If you have questions, call or e-mail me. Anyone is more than welcome to come inspect in person or request additional photos. I will describe the truck as honestly as possible. Winning bidder must pay deposit of $500.00 within 48 hours of auction end or truck will be re-listed. I purchased this truck a couple months ago, but ended up buying a 69 Camaro last weekend, so this one has to go to fund the new project.
1993 Chevy Silverado 1500 Indianapolis 500 "Official Pace Truck" Pretty rare truck.. Only 1,534 produced. 189,xxx miles.
Engine / Trans: Original 350 motor and Jasper remanufactured 4l60E Auto / Overdrive transmission. Engine is original and I do not believe its been rebuilt. It does not smoke, but does leak a little oil. Engine needs a tune up, has a slight miss at idle and sometimes stalls out when you come to a stop. I have not tried to figure out what the problem is.
Body: Body is solid, paint is original, (20 years old) Honestly, the paint looks better in the pictures than it does in person. The truck would look much better buffed out, but due to the amount of scratches and dents it would probably make more sense to re-paint the truck. There is no rust on the truck besides the pictures I took which reflect surface rust only. Freedom Tonneau cover in great shape. Truck has clean car fax history with no accidents.
Suspension: Brakes work perfect, steering and front end is tight, and truck does not pull left or right. Truck is all original, interior is in good shape with very comfortable 60/40 bench seat.
It does need some TLC. There are dents and scratches, a crack in the windshield, leaky power steering hose. Also needs a tune up, has a slight miss at idle and sometimes stalls out when you come to a stop. Tailgate has a pretty bad dent on it. (see pictures) There is also a dent on the back side of the cab next to the window, and on the front fender.
A/C / Heat work great. I just installed a new compressor, condenser, new AC lines, dryer, and charged the systems with 134a.
Everything works on the truck, gauges, radio, power windows, blinkers, lights, wipers, etc...
Call me if your interested in seeing the truck or have any questions. Joe (352) 425-0998

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.
Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.

Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.
There's only about a week left until we get our first look at the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan, but Chevrolet NASCAR teams have been looking at the race version of the car all winter. Autoweek has posted a really neat time-lapse video showing just a portion of what it takes to build one of NASCAR's new Gen6 stock cars.
Though the video is quite brief, it does show almost the entire build process starting with just the car's nose, and it gives us a good look at how integral the template is to the final product. As a bonus, Hendrick Motorsports also provided some videos showing two of its teams performing pit stop tests over the winter. The second video shows some of the more detailed aspects of the racecar's rear end, including the stock-looking trunk cutout and a newly mandated rear bumper extension that will be used on super speedways like Daytona and Talladega.
To see what Team Chevy has been up to all off-season, check out all three videos posted after the jump.
