For Sale is a 1968 Chevelle SS 396 all original numbers matching car. Let me just take the time to say you don't find this every day and it is a rarity. This car I am selling with a story and the tattered remains of the buildsheet I discovered between the trunk pan and the gas tank. I was able to contact the second owner and get the history on the car from 1969 to present. The car was built in Framingham Mass. and originally purchased in New York. It moved to San Antonio in 1976. Being at these locations explains the rust issues the car has. It has rust in the typical locations the rear window shelf, lower front fenders, lower rear quarters, floors and the trunk. It is a shame this car was left outside but the good news is it can all be fixed and they make replacement panels for just about everything these days. I purchased the car with the intentions of doing a frame off restoration and saving this car from the crusher. Financially I can't afford to accomplish this anytime soon. This car restored would go for over $100,000 at a Barret Jackson Event due to the car retaining all of its original equiptment and correctness. It's definately worth saving and one day will be an incredible beauty again! The options are as follows: 396/350hp engine, M-21 4 speed muncie, 12 bolt posi rear axle with 3.55 gears, Paint code V-V (Sequoia Green Metallic), Black Bucket seat interior w/Console, imitation wood steering wheel and vertical "Roll" tach in the instrument cluster. This is a four wheel drum car and came with the sleeper steel wheels and the dog dish covers from the factory. I have decoded the entire car and everything is correct on the car except for the ralley wheels and Carb. I have since located and purchased the numbers matching carb and the correct coded steel wheels. The car does run but is not road worthy as the brakes need work and it has been sitting since 1981. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I know what this car is worth so please no low ballers or tire kickes. Again this car needs a full restoration and is not for the faint of heart. Clear Colorado Title in hand. Buyer is responsible for Shipping and Transportation method. Will Deliver Locally for additional fee. Full payment is Due within 7 days of Auction end. Thanks

The Cadillac Escalade has been at or near the top of most-stolen and insurance-loss lists for more than seven years, until it dropped to number six earlier this year. In 2011 it was fitted with a host of new security features to address its easy-to-override features and that has brought the number of thefts down, but when eight of the ten most stolen rides are large SUVs from General Motors, no one will argue that something else needs to be done.

Thus, GM has fitted this same theft-deterring tech to the 2015 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon. The Suburban and Tahoe will get the steering lock that the Escalade and Yukon already get, plus bolted-down third-row seats to deter thefts like this, stronger door lock cylinders and shields, and side-cut keys to inhibit picking.
Additional security measures in a Theft Protection Package can be purchased for $395, consisting of sensors on the greenhouse glass and interior, an incline/tilt sensor and added "key control systems" to make it more difficult for the men in black balaclavas to steal what you bought.
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.
The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.
