Summer is Coming!!! 2002 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Convertible. This is the 35th Anniversary Edition which includes an all-aluminum 5.7L V8 LS-1 Corvette engine. White exterior/top and black leather interior. Automatic, ice cold AC, cruise, power convertible top, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, power driver side seat, power trunk release. The original owner installed Flowmaster exhaust and I added C&N Cold Air Induction. I just added new headlights assemblies. I still have the old ones. I had them professionally wetsanded but they were still not brilliantly clear so I bought new ones.....the old ones are available. I also have seat covers that have been on there for a few years now to protect the leather seats which are in very good shape with the exception of the driver seat base that has some cracking. I also have a car cover. I just checked the MPG and I went 60 miles on the freeway on 2.42 gallons. That's 24.9 MPG!! This is a two-owner car that was purchased in Florida and has been here ever since. Never seen snow or ice or SALT!! It's an enormously capable car....the speedometer goes to 155 but I've never seen anything over about 110. It runs at 2000 rpms at 80 mph. Lots of fun to drive. Looks great and sounds AWESOME. The sound is what got me to buy it. And that you NEVER see another car just like it....try that with a mustang gt. I may be available to deliver the car on it's wheels for the price of gas.

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]Tue, 05 Feb 2013 10:13:00 EST
Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.
