A good driving collectible.  It runs great and I can send you video if you request - only serious requests please.

I bought this truck about 5 years ago in Missouri and it's obvious underneath that this truck has probably always been driven it's whole life as it should be.  It has the trailing arm suspension and rides very nice and smooth with just a little float, if you know what I mean?  The body is in the condition indicated by the numerous photos.  I took them from everywhere possible to give you an accurate impression of the condition.  To me, it is a 30 footer, for those not familiar, it looks great from 30 feet, however up close, you will see signs of use.  The paint is obviously not factory paint and whoever did it may not have had a lot of experience.  I only suggest this because it is swirly in a couple of places, has spider cracking in places and some of the spider cracks have raised the paint and then there is rust underneath some of them.  I can honestly say in the 5 years I've owned it, having driven it only around 500 miles, the condition of the paint hasn't changed much if at all.

It uses about 1/4 quart of oil per tank of gas, and the gasket between the transmission and output shaft housing is leaking transmission fluid.  I add about a quart or two every year.  The power steering fluid leaks and I can't nail that one down to a specific part.

Please bid with confidence that you could fly here and drive it home, keeping an eye on the fluids, and spending a small fortune for gas.  I've heard these get around 10 mpg, but then you're not buying it for that.

It's pretty much stock except for the steering wheel, tack and stereo.  It has the factory a/c compressor and condenser still in place, I believe the whole system is in it.  I will have a panel for the glove box door before the end of the auction so ignore it in the pics.  Its a nice truck to drive and you'll get the looks.

Not very visible in the pics so I'm pointing out that there are some rust bubbles on the wheel wells, but under the hood it's relatively clean.  The wheels have some rust spots, but I haven't tried chrome polish on them yet and will update you if you ask about if it works.  Best guess would be a few rust spots on each wheel will be through the plating.  Also, the passenger door button on the outside fell into the door and I haven't and won't have time to fix it.  Look at LMC Trucks website or elsewhere, restoration parts for these are readily available.

The auction is no reserve so bid to win and you will.  The truck must be picked up by July 10th, or between Aug 10-14th.  We are moving which is why I'm selling, no storage where I'm going.  Please check shipping options.

Conquest and controversy conclude the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona [spoilers]

Sun, 26 Jan 2014 19:19:00 EST

If you don't wish to know who won the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona, you should avert your eyes right now. We'll even give you a double-space to skedaddle...
For those of you still with us, the first race in the United SportsCar Championship (USCC) is done, but the discussions about it certainly won't end for a while. Daytona Prototypes claimed the first four overall places, the top spot taken by the No. 5 Action Express Coyote-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Joao Barbosa, Christian Fittipaldi, Sebastien Bourdain and Burt Friselle. The 16th and final caution of the race bunched the field up for an eight-minute sprint to the flag, so the first place getter finished just 1.4 seconds ahead of the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Dallara-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Max Angelelli. Third place went to Brian Friselle in the No. 9 Action Express Chevrolet Corvette DP, 20 seconds down. Chevrolet power hasn't taken the overall win since 2003, eleven years later it scores a one-two-three-four. The No. 6 Muscle Milk/Pickett Racing ORECA-Nissan 03 scored fifth place, the top LMP2 finisher.
The Prototype Challenge class win went to the No. 54 CORE Autosport team of Colin Braun, Jon Bennett, Mark Wilkins and James Gue.

Mother's Day Suggestion No. 2,506

Thu, 02 May 2013 19:59:00 EST

With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.

GM recalls full-size truck, SUVs and vans over faulty shifter mechanism

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 08:28:00 EST

Twelve different General Motors vehicles from the 2013 model year, up to 54,686 units in total, are being recalled over two potential issues with their steering columns. The models in question, all full-size trucks, SUVs or vans, are the: Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.
The affected vehicles were built with a fractured parking lock cable or "a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly." As a consequence, they could shift out of park without the brake pedal being applied or with the key removed or in the off position.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that the recall should begin on January 17. GM will notify owners, at which time they can take their vehicles to their dealers for repair free of charge. Have a look at the bulletin below for more information.
