1990 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Wagon 4-door 5.0l on 2040-cars
paint still shines and presents great withy the wood trim
Adams, New York, United States
This is an original car with 45,200 miles since the first owner purchased it in 1990. He kept a written diary from the day he picked up the car at the dealership. It was first a GM executive car for the first 3,000 miles but was titled new to the owner who purchased it. Compared to these wagons which are left, this has to be near the top, though it is not perfect. Car presents awesome and gets a ton or comments. The best way to describe it over the internet is to list the pros and cons for you to be the judge. Car runs, drives and shifts excellent. It has a 307 V-8 engine with automatic transmission. From that I can tell, it has every available option noted in the 1990 sales brochure also included. It also comes with the official GM maintenance manual. At 11,000 miles GM replaced the transmission under warranty noted in the paperwork. Therefore the transmission only has about 33,000 miles on it. Seats and interior are great with no tears etc. It was never smoked in as the lighter is still new. It will eventually need a new headliner as it's starting to come apart from the foam in some areas. Everything works including the power antenna with the exception that the right channel on the radio goes in and out. Not uncommon for these old Delco radios which were crap to begin with. The A/C works but needs a charge and has yet to be converted from r-12 to r-134a. I have the kit to convert it which will also be included. The exterior paint still shines and presents great withy the wood trim. However, there are various marks here and there typical of a 24 year old car - SEE PICS. There are a couple spots under the wood trim which have bubbles under them but have not broken through. - AGAIN SEE PICS. I bought a new roll of paneling to repair these spots but have not done it yet. If the car sells, the roll would go with it. The undercarriage is solid and car was under coated when it was new as documented in the paperwork. I have reason to believe the tires are original based on the fact there is not paperwork to state otherwise. They are Uniroyal Tiger Paws very popular for the time this was produced. Mechanically brakes, spark plugs were done around 39,000 miles. I just recently put 4 new shocks and added spring spacers at the base of the spring to raise the rear to OEM specs. It also has a brand new exhaust from the engine back including the converter. This car is a blast to drive and presents well. You can pick it apart here and there if you are overly fussy but overall it is in great shape for the type of family of which most were drove into the ground. Autocheck scores a 48 out of a range of 9-27 for the average vehicle. This was the last year for this style and in 1990, 12,305 wagons were produced. At time of listing, car has 45,198 miles. It is currently registered and inspected so if it sells pleased be advised the mileage will be slightly higher. If you have any questions or would like to see it in person, please do so BEFORE bidding. Thanks.

It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.

It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.
Chevrolet showed off the new 2014 SS in an airport hangar last night, its first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan in the US since the Impala SS from 1997. We'll have more to say about the SS later today, but this is the sedan that Chevrolet sees as the final piece in restoring its performance credentials. For those of you looking for a manual transmission, however, that wish will go unfulfilled - at least for now: the only two options buyers will have are the color and whether or not they want a sunroof.

We'll work on getting some more angles (in better light) today at Daytona International Speedway, but with fans seeing the car for the first time, we don't hold out much luck of getting a clear shot. So for now, enjoy the high-res gallery above.
General Motors isn't the first automaker to deliver in-car Internet access, but a proposed plan announced today could make the technology more widespread than any of its competitors have offered. By the 2015 model year, most Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC products in the US and Canada will offer 4G LTE mobile broadband access. Initially, GM will just be pairing with AT&T to deliver this service, but additional carriers will be revealed in the future.
Current in-car Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, but GM says that 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G service and will allow for full Internet access, including streaming video for entertainment as well as services like real-time traffic updates and navigation driving directions. There is also no need for a paired smartphone with this new system, which should make it easier to use, and GM and AT&T will also be working together to develop new apps for customers.
Buyers can expect to start seeing 4G LTE in their cars starting next year, and GM is already planning to expand the service to other global markets as well. All of the information from GM's announcement is posted in a press release below.
