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

For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.

What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"
The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."

Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.
Follow the link to see all the winners and read about why they were chosen.
Chevrolet has thrown down the next hand in the pickup truck poker wars and revealed at least a couple of potential aces - depending on which numbers matter most to you. The 2014 2014 Silverado 1500 with its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gets 335 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, is mated to a six-speed automatic, can tow 11,500 pounds with the optional Max Trailer Package and costs the same as the outgoing Silverado, $24,585 (*including $995 destination fee). Chevy says the Silverado also stands atop the fuel economy charts when comparing any competitor with a V8 engine - and some competitors with V6 engines. The two-wheel drive model returns 16 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, 19 mpg combined in two-wheel drive guise and 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined as a four-wheel drive.
For context around those numbers, the most fuel efficient V8-powered 2013 Ford F-150 pickups lose about two mpg in every metric compared to the Silverado, the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost returning 16 city, 18 highway and 22 combined in two-wheel drive. However, that EcoBoost does have 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. You can get a Ram 1500 with a 3.6-liter V6 that gets 25 mpg highway, but it has 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. The 2013 Ram with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and its 395 hp and 407 lb-ft drops one mpg in every category to the Silverado. Its tow rating is 200 pounds beyond its nearest competitor, the F-150 with the Max Trailer Tow Package.
Elsewhere, the new Silverado gets a quieter cab with a redesigned interior, a new bed with improved load-management possibilities, disc brakes all around, tweaked steering and suspension, along with free standard scheduled maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles.
