I have too many toys, so I have decided to sell a few of them. This auction is for my 1995 Chevrolet K1500 4x4 Silverado. It is a beautiful truck that needs nothing other than a new home. It is a very reliable truck that I would drive anywhere with no concerns.
This 1995 Chevy is basically a new truck. Everything is new.
I have owned this truck for about 4 years. It was painted just before I purchased it. There was a fender bender prior to it being painted. The driver's side cab corner and rocker were repaired. The driver's door was also bent a bit and was replaced (easier option). The driver's door didn't get painted on the inside (dark green)...and the rocker is still in primer. I wasn't worried about it since I planned to use bedliner to paint the inside of the doors and the rockers on both sides. I have not had the time to do that yet. I do have a couple of cans of blue paint that would match that I am including in case you want to paint it blue again. I also have a little extra paint from when the truck was painted (both colors). The body was rust free when it was painted...and it is still rust free. It looks nice with the medium blue paint and dark blue fender flares and Super Sport stripes on the hood. I don't drive it in the winter. From how clean the underside is, I would say it saw very little winter driving. It is clean enough to eat off of...still has original paint underneath. The body and paint still look great. The truck is nice enough to take to shows. It is not perfect in every way, but it is a 1995 Chevrolet and is very nice for the age. I don't drive it off-road (too pretty). It is a pavement pounder. It would be a very capable off-road toy if so desired.
The truck is all decked out. The cowl hood is a nice steel hood. The truck also has a sun roof. There are tons of other extras -- Ranch Hand bumpers (front and rear), aftermarket tail lights, HID headlights, new horns, roll bar with KC Lights (never used), another pair of KC Lights on the front bumper (never used), blue windshield wipers (dual blade), vent shades, chrome diamond plate bed caps, chrome on the lower body, big whip CB antennas, chrome door handles, chrome tailgate handle, chrome fuel door cover, wiper huggies (help the windshield wipers work better), tinted windows, fender flares, rubber bed mat, etc.....way too much to list.
It is not just pretty...everything is great mechanically, too. There is so much to talk about...I will try to cover the basics. The truck shows 221872 miles on the odometer. I have driven it a little over 4000 miles since I purchased it. During that time, everything has been gone through. The engine was supposed to have been replaced before I purchased the truck and had low miles on it. The 350 engine has been tuned up (belts, hoses, plugs, wires, etc.), had the timing set, and has been thoroughly checked over. If anything needed replaced, it was replaced. It has a new throttle body spacer (Helix Power Tower)...K&N cold air intake system...a new battery...and so on. The truck runs great. I never use the AC, so I am sure it needs to be recharged (if you want to use it). The radiator is new. The headers were just installed...with new true dual exhaust. It sounds great with the Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers and Magnaflow tips. The truck has 3.73 gears and has no problems at any speed whether driving it in town or on the highway. The front differential has been replaced. The 4-wheel-drive actuator is new. The steering gear box is new. The whole front end has been rebuilt (ball joints, control arm bushings, tie rod ends, etc.)...and it has been freshly aligned. Basically everything in the front end is new. The transfer case has been flushed and inspected. It is in good working order. The transmission is new (overdrive). All u-joints in the truck are new. The rear end has new axle shafts, bearings, seals, etc. All brakes are new -- pads and calipers in the front, shoes in the rear, etc. Everything has been gone through. It is like a new truck.
The Silverado is lifted with big tires. It is like a monster truck. The truck has a 4" suspension lift and a 3" body lift (7 inches of lift) and new 35" Dick Cepek Crusher tires. The tires are similar to Super Swamper Boggers but last a lot longer. They are great tires. The tires are mounted to nice polished aluminum wheels. The tires make the nice hum sound going down the road. It is like music to my ears.
The interior is very nice for a 1995 Chevrolet truck. The interior is blue and is very clean. There are a couple of cigarette burns on the seats (from a previous owner - I don't smoke). There are a couple of cracks on the dash, too. There is minimal wear on the driver's seat. Other than that, it is nice. The truck has power windows and locks. It has a Sony CD player, Sony 6.5" speakers in the doors, and a nice setup under the back seat with 2 10" Kicker subs powered by a Kicker amp. The stereo system is basically new and sounds great. All gauges work properly. Everything works fine. There are other extras, too -- pedal covers, steering wheel cover, nice floor mats in the front and back, new inside door handles (with visors and power window switch covers to match), etc. There are many new parts...too many to mention.
This truck rides like a Cadillac going down the highway. Even on bumpy streets in town, it still rides nice (especially for a lifted truck). It is a nice looking truck. It runs, drives, and sounds great. Everyone compliments me on the truck. I will regret selling it, but I have too many toys.
I will be happy to show you the truck if you would like to give it a personal inspection. Also feel free to ask questions. I may have left something out (too much information to mention on this truck).
Thanks and Happy Bidding.

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.
The next Chevrolet Cruze isn't set to go into production for about another year, and we're just now seeing prototypes of the new compact running around here in the States. Not much more has been revealed since we saw the car blasting through the snow in Europe, but we can still clearly see new design elements like the larger grille, slimmer headlamps and redesigned taillamps.

Our spy photographers worked up a composite image of this Cruze prototype alongside the current model, and here, we can clearly see some big visual changes are in store for the new model. The 2015 Cruze's hood slopes downward more dramatically, the windshield is more heavily raked, and the roofline looks more fluid overall. The next-generation Cruze will ride on the new global Delta platform that will also underpin other General Motors vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt and Equinox.
As for what's under the hood, we expect the normal range of gasoline four-cylinder engines (both naturally aspirated and turbocharged), and the compact's new turbodiesel four should carry over, as well. Have a look at the full brace of spy photos in the gallery above.
