You are bidding on my 1988 Chevrolet c 1500 pickup. this truck has served me well for the past 3 years and i have taken this to many shows from St. Ignace to Woodward. i was planning on taking it on the hot rod power tour this year but since i had hit some hard times i have decided to sell her. i have used her to go to work from Chicago and back many of times without any hassles. i not only used this truck for show but for work as well. so here what she has on her so far.
the truck currently has 155000 miles on her. i have a list of 600 dollars in parts that i put into the truck which includes putting in an alternator, new starter, power steering pump, water pump, new ignition module, new rotor, and distributor and new lower ball joints. the truck runs strong and the transmission shifts smooth. but there are some things that it needs due to the age of the truck. but is minor things that need to be done to make it perfect. This truck has a lot of customization done to it also including being correctly lowered 2 inches in the front and 3 inches in the back with drop spindles, 2 inch lowered springs , and sport truck gas shocks all the way around. it has a fiberglass roll pan for a rear bumper, and a painted front bumper. this truck also has a 98 front clip on the front including a green illuminated bow-tie in the grille. there is a hard tonneau cover on the box as well as a bedrug carpet and altezza taillights. the truck also has the SS 454 bucket seats and center console for the interior.
firstly, the body mounts for the cab and the box need to be replaced, secondly the shocks need to be changed out due to the loss of gas in them, it does need a set of tires as well. the cruise control switch has broke of the turn signal switch and needs to be replaced as well but the cruise control still works. the AC also needs to be recharged. not to mention i had a careless driver in a Walmart parking lot bump into my grille and leave. needing a new grille, as well as some bodywork due to miscellaneous dents and rust. but other than that this truck is ready for work or play or if you want a running driving project truck to take to car shows. it is all up to you.:)
The reserve is way lower than the buy it now price so rest assured you can own this at a very affordable rate. i also have a second set of wheels for the truck for 300 bucks if you are interested.:)
i hate to see her go but i have to make room in my garage for my new business. but my loss is your gain. now if you want me to deliver her to you i can do that for 1.75 cents a mile. i also have the right to end the auction early cause it is for sale locally. if you have any questions you can get a hold of me at 989 513 4237 and ask for Ethan. or if you want to email me your questions then i'll be more than happy to answer them for you.

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.
The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.

According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.
Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.
But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.
