Up for auction is a 1976 Corvette Stingray Coupe. It's an L-82, numbers matching. It is owned by a close friend, who doesn't have an ebay account. It use to be long to my best friend since 2006. Tony bought it just before his passing in 2011. It originally was bought new in Oklahoma, then sold in Arkansas. Where it resided till 2006, when My best friend Bob brought it to Missouri. It's been here since then.

 This numbers matching Corvette Coupe has never been wrecked, and has only repaint, in 2008. The carpets were replaced in 2009, and the luggage rack was added at the same time. Floor mats were bought during the same time period.

 The engine is an L-82, that burns no oil and runs very strong. Transmission does not leak or have any problems. The trailing arms were rebuilt in 2010, and all front bushings were replaced then as well. It now, as of 2010, has a new 3 row aluminum radiator. and all new hoses. The clock doesn't work. The radio works, but to perform better, it needs modern guts put inside. Air Conditioning will work, but leaks out in about a week. I think it is O-rings, from sitting so much.

 The wheels and tires came off another 76 Corvette Tony sold. They wanted the rally wheel combo, so he switched. Tires have about 80% tread. And there is a key for the wheel locks.

  Tony just, in the past 2 weeks had the ignition system worked on. All new plugs and wires were put on, because the chrome headers would burn them up. He also at the same time replaced the headers for factory exhaust manifolds. And reduced the exhaust tubes back to 2 and a half inch, back to factory size. A new over flow bottle was installed as well. Old one leaked real bad.

 I have driven this car on several occasions, and can tell you that it is a joy to drive. I have placed it in several car shows as well. It shows that nice.

 Now the bad. It has a small oil leak from the rear main seal, and it sits way too long in Tony's shed. Basicly driven when I get a chance. He enjoys his C5 more.

This classic C3 Corvette Coupe needs a home where some one will enjoy it, and maintain it. Every time I drive it, people give thumbs up, or comments how how cool it looks. If you like to brag, then this is the Corvette for you. Every one wants to ask questions when it parked.

 I think I have covered everything about this car. If there are any questions, just e-mail me, and I will answer your questions or concerns. Thank you and good luck

Automakers score 8 out of top 20 most-watched ads on YouTube [w/videos]

Fri, 14 Dec 2012 20:02:00 EST

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.'s latest test results in a familiar winner [w/video]

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 16:58:00 EST has gone and thrown the latest batch of half-ton pickups into a cage match to see who would come out on top. The site put the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan through a battery of tests. Those included 0-60 miles per hour acceleration, 60-0 mph deceleration, fuel economy, a hill climb, and payload and towing. They even threw the rigs on an autocross course to evaluate overall handling. Each truck was given points based on how it scored in each evaluation.
Who came out on top? Somewhat surprisingly, the 2013 Ford F-150 walked away with the gold, though fewer than 50 points separated first and fourth place. Head over to to read the full evaluation and the final results. You may be shocked to see exactly where some of the segment's newest additions placed. You can also watch a video on the test below.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.
