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

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.
PickupTrucks.com has gone and thrown the latest batch of half-ton pickups into a cage match to see who would come out on top. The site put the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan through a battery of tests. Those included 0-60 miles per hour acceleration, 60-0 mph deceleration, fuel economy, a hill climb, and payload and towing. They even threw the rigs on an autocross course to evaluate overall handling. Each truck was given points based on how it scored in each evaluation.

Who came out on top? Somewhat surprisingly, the 2013 Ford F-150 walked away with the gold, though fewer than 50 points separated first and fourth place. Head over to PickupTrucks.com to read the full evaluation and the final results. You may be shocked to see exactly where some of the segment's newest additions placed. You can also watch a video on the test below.
Ward's Auto has taken an interesting look at the renewed focus General Motors is showing towards Cadillac in Europe. Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac in Europe (pictured), says in order for the luxury brand to thrive in China, it first needs to succeed in the old country. The reason? Chinese buyers look to Europe for cues as to what's deemed worthy of the term "luxury." There are hurdles to the plan, however. In addition to the fact that the EU is flooded with high-end nameplates, GM doesn't necessarily have the distribution network in place to put buyers behind the wheel.
Combine that with persistent economic woes and Cadillac's checkered past marred by a lack of diesel engine options and a bankrupt distributor, and the road ahead for the brand looks like less of an uphill climb and more like a straight-up cliff face. But Docherty is optimistic and says she has a plan for the brand. We recommend heading over to Ward's for a closer look at the full read.
