All original 1976 Caprice 4 door hardtop.  Car has original paint, under the hood is all original and unmolested.  Interior is also original.  Only thing not original is the rims.  Car is 90% rust free.  Has one minor hole on the left lower dog leg on the rear of car, small blister on right rear door and one small blister on the lower left fender.  Car has one small dent on the hood and another small on on the drivers door.  The one in the door is hardly noticable as it is right on the transition of the door.  Paint shines very well for a 36 year old car.  It has paint peeling on the rear window filler section.  White vinyl top is in very good shape but has a few rust blisters starting to show under it.  Very minor but they are there.  Engine is the stock 350 with 350 transmission.  Has all stock parts and still has the stock exhaust system.  Runs great and shifts as it should.  Interior has two very small minor imperfections.  A small burn on the front seat and another on the rear seat.  Dash pad is perfect, door panels are perfect.  Still has the factory radio in the dash and it works.  Car has power locks(working), Cruise(working) A/C(working) and tilt wheel.  Fuel guage works as it should.  There is no rust in the floorboards or in the trunk.  Wheels are Outlaw II's and are pitted.  Tires are prob around 25%.  I have the original rims but not the hubcaps.  Car drives excellent and everything works as it should.  I would drive this car cross country with no worries. Great driver or excellent car to restore.  Hard to find one with good interior and this solid.  Car has the front bumper fillers intact but the rear outer ones are brittle and breaking.  Common problems for this model of car

Chevy confirms Corvette Stingray Convertible for Geneva

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 16:31:00 EST

Want proof that General Motors has increased global ambitions for its 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray? It's staging the world premiere of the model's convertible variant at the Geneva Motor Show early next month.
As previously rumored, the droptop rendered above will debut at the Swiss show, making its first appearance anywhere on March 5. According to Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet, the location makes sense because Corvette "...is an icon that has long been recognized and admired even in countries where it's never officially been offered."
While neither Chevrolet nor the Corvette has a major sales presence in Switzerland, the Bowtie's European headquarters is located in Zurich (about three hours to the northeast of Geneva) and GM has made it clear that it wants to build the Chevrolet brand up across Europe.

Dodge vs. Chevy tug-of-war taken to the extreme

Mon, 17 Dec 2012 14:58:00 EST

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.

Vert-A-Pac train cars kept your Chevy Vega's price in check

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:46:00 EST

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
