A Solid Car for Michigan Standards, this car must have been garaged or from another state. The trans is toast but I can put another one in. The 5.0 V8 engine is tired but runs. The door mechanisms need work. THIS CAR WILL HAVE TO BE TOWED OR LOADED BY WINCH. $800 ABOVE WINNING BID WILL GET ANOTHER TRANS PUT IN TO MAKE THE CAR DRIVEABLE. WE HAVE CLEANED THIS CAR UP AND THOSE PICTURES DO NOT DO JUSTICE. I WILL GET NEW PICS SOON. THE HEADLINER IS VINYL AND HAS A CHEVY EMBLEM IN WHITE BUTTONS. ONLY STOCK STEEL WHEELS ARE ON THIS CAR. THE HEADREST SAY CAPRICE CLASSIC AND THE BACK SIDE WINDOWS HAVE IT ETCHED IN THE WINDOWS. THE TRUNK HAS A MURAL. NEEDS NEW TIRES.
I WILL IN STALL A GOOD TRANSMISSION FOR $800 MORE THAN THE WINNING BID IF YOU WANT ME TOO.
The 2014 Chevrolet SS will make its racing debut for the 2013 Daytona 500, but the production version of the car will get its official unveiling on February 16 in Daytona, a week before The Great American Race. According to a report by Automotive News, the reveal has been confirmed by Jim Campbell, Chevy's US vice president of performance and motorsports. With the departure of the Dodge Charger, the new Chevrolet racecar will be the only competitor to feature a V8, rear-wheel-drive layout in both street and NASCAR form.
NASCAR fans will be able to see the new fullsize performance-oriented sedan on display in the festivities leading up to the Daytona 500, but the car won't go on sale until later in the year. The Australian-built Chevy SS will be a low-volume performance model, and it will be priced above the 2014 Impala, which starts at $27,535.
If the 2013 Indy 500 were a movie it would be the one expected to win all the little statues come awards season, and if it were an athlete it would have made spectators watch in awe as it broke record after record. And this kind of talk comes after last year's race was considered one of the best ever - the last lap hijinks in 2012 and Takuma Sato's crash leading to a podium ceremony straight out of a Golden Globes tearjerker.
But this year's race delivered more than anyone expected, from the 250,000 fans to the commentators to the IndyCar series itself and, finally, to the guy who hopped through a two-mile window on Lap 197 to take the lead and keep it until the end.
Super Storm Sandy took out a lot of automobiles in its path of destruction through the Northeast last October. The number surpassed 250,000 at last count, and a few of those were owned by Chevrolet - cars either sitting on dealership lots or waiting at port to be shipped off. Rendered unsellable by the water damage inflicted by Sandy, these vehicles were facing the crusher. But Chevy didn't send them there.
Instead, Chevy had a better idea: It will be donating 300 of these vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders at Guardian Centers in Perry, GA. Chevy is the official automotive partner of Guardian Centers, which is an 830-acre facility that trains first responders in disaster preparedness. Junked cars are practically a consumable commodity there, where a full-size cityscape simulator gives trainees an entire urban center in which to train for all sorts of rescue operations and disaster scenarios.
Chevy says its particular vehicles will be used "in conjunction with role players for wide area searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualty exercises." While grim scenarios all, we're certainly glad there are people out there preparing for the unexpected. While a zombie apocalypse isn't officially on the list of potential disasters to prepare for, when the virus hits, we'll be hot-footing it to Perry, GA to hang with these guys and gals.
