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.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.

Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?
The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.

Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.
It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro - the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.
The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?
At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.
