This stunning 1959 Chevrolet Apache 3100 pickup received a ton of time and money. It's a labor of love that has
resulted in a high quality, exceptionally clean, classic truck that delivers muscle car V8 performance and modern
comfort. It's the kind of pickup you'd build if you had the time, patience, skills and money, but instead, this is
turnkey ready so you can start enjoying it immediately.
Chrome bumpers, a bright grille, and those trick parking lamp housings dress up the truck, taking it beyond a mere
tool, and into the realm of cool custom. And no vintage pickup is complete without a beautifully finished wood bed.

Be prepared for plenty more custom work when you open the door. It starts with the custom tan leather bench that
has been stitched so the driver and passenger can have individual comfort. The door panels do a great job of mixing
the upholstery and exterior colors so that the whole atmosphere flows nicely, from the tan seats, to the red dash.
Your left hand will love the Grant steering wheel with glossy wood rim, and your right may never want to leave the
Lokar-style floor shifter. You get a Classic Instruments gauge package, and while that already provides you with
plenty of info, this custom build wants you completely informed. Thus, there's a tach mounted on the tilt steering
column, as well as a trio of auxiliary readouts under the dash. This pickup was built to be good to you and your
friends with added comfort features such as ice-cold R134a air conditioning, supplementary insulation on the
firewall, and a vintage style AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary input for you modern music player hidden in the glove
box. Sound proofing and has been added as well as power windows but the existing handles are utilized so as not to
disturb the aesthetics.
With so much invested in the interior and exterior to make this a great car show companion, you better believe thee
was plenty of consideration under the hood, too. The crate 350 cubic-inch small block looks fantastic with the
Chevrolet Performance air cleaner and matching valve covers, tidy wires, fresh hoses, and expensive polished
pulleys. But beyond looking great, this motor is built to be a true all-around performer. It's a Chevy crate V8
that has been thoroughly gone through, and then added a mild cam, and a Holley Sniper Fuel Injection System with a
controller in the glove box that allows you to change the fuel delivery settings. There's only about 6,800 miles
on the whole custom build. So you know this enhanced V8 fires up easily, and thanks to the H-pipe Flowmaster
exhaust, everyone knows there's something special under the hood. But this Chevy's appeal goes beyond the motor.
You have an upgraded independent front suspension, front disc brakes, power steering, and a 700R4 four-speed
automatic transmission w/overdrive. Starting to get the picture on this one? It's the classically cool pickup you
can drive anywhere.

GM recalls full-size truck, SUVs and vans over faulty shifter mechanism

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 08:28:00 EST

Twelve different General Motors vehicles from the 2013 model year, up to 54,686 units in total, are being recalled over two potential issues with their steering columns. The models in question, all full-size trucks, SUVs or vans, are the: Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.
The affected vehicles were built with a fractured parking lock cable or "a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly." As a consequence, they could shift out of park without the brake pedal being applied or with the key removed or in the off position.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that the recall should begin on January 17. GM will notify owners, at which time they can take their vehicles to their dealers for repair free of charge. Have a look at the bulletin below for more information.

GM recalling over 243,000 crossovers over possible seat belt defect

2010 Buick Enclave - Click above for high-res image gallery
The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.

2015 Chevy Tahoe gets Police Patrol Vehicle treatment

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:29:00 EST

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.
