1956 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster convertible. California car with California title and only in the northeast since 2009. Stored in doors and only driven on nice summer days ever since. Stunning paint and body done in Cascade Green with white coves and a beige interior. This vette packs a dual quad 283 motor and a Tremec 5 speed manual transmission. You can take this car on the highway and cruise at 70 MPH with no issues at all. The fiberglass body is un-hit and un-patched. Everything opens and closes perfectly. The vette rides on its original, un-cut and un-patched frame, the underneath is beautiful (see pictures). The paint is just about show quality, super vibrant and nice and flat with a deep shine. There is a couple minor chips near the kick plate when you open the door, and one when you flip up the gas fill door. There is also a scratch on the bottom passenger rear fender that is near impossible to see unless you are down on the ground up close looking for it (see picture). Mind you, these are all minor and do NOT take away from how beautiful this car really is. All the chrome and stainless are in beautiful condition, no scratches, pitting or any type of hazing. All the glass is in excellent shape with no scratches or chips. The windows also go up and down with ease. The convertible top was new 2 years ago and in excellent shape, no punctures and no staining. The whitewall tires, wheels and hubs are all like new condition. The interior is a 9.8 out of a 10. The seat upholstery and the dash eyebrow is all brand new from Al Knock Corvette interiors which is the best you can buy. All the gauges work including the factory tach. All the instruments and original steering wheel were sent out by the previous owner and were completely restored. The carpet, door panels and everything else are in beautiful condition. Not much to really say about the interior except the fact that it is in beautiful condition. The dual quad 283 motor runs absolutely beautifully. It fires right up with out issue, idles perfectly, has plenty of get up and go power and doesn't smoke, tick or have any weird noises. It will run nice and cool around 160-180 degrees even on the hot summer days sitting in traffic. The Tremec 5 speed manual transmission makes this car an absolute delight to drive. You can buzz around town and if need be, jump on the highway and cruise at an easy 70 MPH in 5th gear. The gearbox has a nice tight gear placement and has no slop, it also has a nice short throw in between gears. The clutch has a perfect grabbing point with no shakes or slipping while driving. Going down the road this vette drives like it is brand new. It drives straight down the road with no vibrations or steering slop. If you hit the manual brakes you stop nice and straight with no pulling. This 1956 Corvette is a beautiful car. There are no stories and it is 100% ready for the new owner to enjoy. The car has always been lovingly maintained and cared for. Just get in, turn the key and head off to the beach.

2013 Chevy COPO Camaro announced with two new engines and manual option

Thu, 07 Mar 2013 18:28:00 EST

Chevrolet is following up the 2012 COPO Camaro with another limited run of the drag-strip-ready production car for 2013. Ditching the superchargers, the 2013 COPO Camaro can only be equipped with one of three naturally aspirated V8 engines, and other new features include the option of a manual transmission, new front springs, some minor styling changes and a lower starting price of $86,000. All cars are designed to abide by the rules of the NHRA's Stock Eliminator or Super Stock classifications, depending on in which series buyers wish to enter their Chevrolet Camaro.
Returning for 2013 is the 427-cubic-inch V8 producing 425 horsepower, but the new engines include a 325-hp 350-CID V8 and a 375-hp 396-CID V8. Buyers can select to purchase all three engines, and each will be matched with the sequence number of that car; the track-only COPO cars will not have vehicle identification numbers and can't be registered for street use.
Chevrolet is also offering unique enthusiast-specific options such as a COPO Build Book and the opportunity for owners to help assemble their car's engine at the Chevrolet Performance Build Center in Wixom, MI.

Ford, Toyota clean up in Best Car For The Money Awards

Fri, 22 Feb 2013 15:44:00 EST

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."
Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra debut all-new designs, three new engines

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 10:49:00 EST

General Motors has finally dropped the curtain on the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra. Both trucks have undergone substantial revisions with updated versions of the company's 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 engines. In a shot across the bows of both Ford and Chrysler, GM says it won't use a V6 engine adapted from passenger car applications. Instead, it developed the 4.3-liter engine based on its proven truck-duty architecture.
All three mills will boast direct injection fuel systems as well as a new cylinder head design. Combined with a revised piston, the new engines feature a smaller combustion chamber with a compression ratio of 11:1 or higher depending on the application. Cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing are all part of the recipe, and each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with auto grade breaking. So far, no fuel economy or horsepower figures have been released, though GM says the new engines will best their predecessors in both areas.
Outside, the trucks feature a number of enhancements to reduce drag and wind noise, and GM claims both the Silverado and Sierra will offer buyers some of the quietest cabins in the class. Extended cab models now feature front-hinged rear doors to allow easier access to the back passenger area, and Crew Cab buyers can now select between a five-foot, eight-inch bed or a six-foot, six-inch bed. Buyers with a mind toward going off road will also rejoice in the return of the Z71 package, complete with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and additional under-body protection.
