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.

Supercharged, 6.2-liter V8? Check. Seven-speed manual? Check. Obsession with weight? Check.
What did you expect when Chevrolet said it was bringing a new Corvette variant to the 2014 New York Auto Show? Maybe a sticker and trim package, like the C6 Corvette Grand Sport or a tie-in deal like the Black Widow car from Chicago? On the opposite end, maybe there was an even more hardcore Z06 waiting in the wings. Who knew?
When you are not the one in charge of the purse strings, creativity is a must when trying to get the string-holder to bankroll that next shiny object you just can't live without.

When I was a kid, I decided that life wasn't worth living if it weren't in pursuit of owning a GMC Typhoon. My 12-year-old self crafted a fiscal strategy that, when combined with my offer of a 49-percent share of ownership in the car in return for my parents' contribution of 80-percent of the purchase price, would see me behind the wheel of a Typhoon by the time I hit college. They walked away from the negotiating table and, the economic climate of the 8th grade being what it was at the time, another partner wasn't found before the Typhoon was discontinued.
Roy El-Rayes, however, has succeeded where 12-year-old me failed, and he did it by using the sort of professionalism that only a PowerPoint presentation can provide, along with some humor and bold-faced flattery.
Who would have ever thought there'd be a day where people are able to skip television commercials only to go to websites to watch them later? Such is the joy of a DVR and YouTube. AdWeek tabulated the 20 most-watched ads on YouTube, and found that nine were car-related including eight coming from automakers.
Volkswagen continued its Star Wars theme with two ads in the top 20, including the highest-ranking car commercial The Bark Side spot at number three with almost 18 million views, which doesn't even have a single car in it. Some of our favorites are from Chrysler with Clint Eastwood in It's Halftime in America and House Arrest with Charlie Sheen for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Chevrolet, Honda, Audi and Toyota were the other automakers in the top 20, but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least mention one of the coolest ads on the list, the Hot Wheels corkscrew jump.
Of all the car videos, only the Fiat ad wasn't played during a Super Bowl. Check out all eight videos - in order - after the jump. Nike took the top spot with its My Time is Now ad that has been seen online more than 20 million times with Pepsi's Uncle Drew posted up in the runner-up; some of the other videos include four Old Spice commercials and an ad in which Snoop Dogg is pedaling Hot Pockets.
