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

If you're burnt out on musings about the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll want to go ahead and skip this post. Motor Trend reports General Motors is hard at work on a low-cost version of the seventh-generation sports car for 2015. Rumored to be called the Corvette Coupe, the car will forgo the Stingray and skip the 450-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine in favor of a 5.3-liter V8 with under 400 ponies. If you're keeping track, that's a shade of the same engine found behind the headlights of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.

The report also suggests the Coupe will receive a number of aesthetic tweaks to separate it from the Stingray, including different front and rear fascias as well as new front fenders and a rear diffuser. Motor Trend says the point of all this is to cut the car's price tag, which means we may see a Corvette on showroom floors for less than $50,000 if this car comes to fruition.
They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.

We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.
We've been on the fence with NASCAR for some time now. On one hand, it's some of the closest racing anywhere in motorsports, with actual passing and door-handle-to-door-handle action as a matter of course. But on the other, it's become template racing - a personality-driven sport more about the drivers than any sort of loyalty to a particular automaker. The Car Of Tomorrow format really rammed that message home, with a racecar's identity coming down to little more than headlamp stickers slapped on the nose. That's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, but we've wondered for some time what's in it for the automakers, who pay big money to stay in a series that has had little increasingly little do with street car sales, let alone innovation.
Apparently General Motors was beginning to wonder the same thing. In a new ESPN report, Rick Hendrick, team owner of Hendrick Motorsports, suggests that GM would have seriously considered leaving NASCAR if it wasn't for the move away from the COT to the new Gen 6 racer. According to Hendrick, GM North America boss Mark Reuss spearheaded the charge away from the 2007 COT and toward a racecar with clearer automaker ties - cars like the new Chevrolet SS racer shown above.

Now, if we could just get more rear-wheel drive V8 coupes into showrooms....
