1990 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Wagon 4-door 5.0l on 2040-cars

Year:1990 Mileage:45000 Color: paint still shines and presents great withy the wood trim
Location:

Adams, New York, United States

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.

Are you the 2014 Corvette Grand Sport?

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 15:28:00 EST

When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette Grand Sport.
The first and most obvious tip-off that something is up with this 'Vette revolves around those silver stripes. Obviously the stripes themselves don't necessarily denote a new model. However, when Chevy recently launched its "colorizer" website for the Stingray, there was no provision made for racing stripes - solid colors only.
Grand Sport exhibit number two is actually an incriminating lack of badges. The production Corvettes we've seen to date have all carried Stingray badges on their fenders, just behind the vent. The car seen in these images has no such badges, which is an intriguing omission on an car that looks like a production-spec vehicle otherwise.

New Bright creating exclusive 1:8 scale radio-controlled C7 Corvette

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 17:45:00 EST

If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.
Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 - representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.

These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.
CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.
