I am listing this car for my father, he has decided to sell it as he just doesn't have the time to drive it anymore. The car was purchased in Arizona in 2002 and it is very clean inside and out, and underneath as well. The car appears to have been repainted sometime before he bought it. The paint is in good condition as you can see in the pictures. There are some rock chips on the front of the car, and the right rear corner of the bumper cover has slight damage to the paint which can also be seen in the pictures. The interior is in excellent condition with very little wear and appears to be all original except for the Pioneer stereo and CD changer that have been installed. The car runs and drives quite well overall, it recently had the oil changed, new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air and fuel filters. The car has two small mechanical issues- the brake pedal is a little soft, it seems like it needs a brake flush or at least the brakes bled. Also, the car does seem to shift into gear a little bit harshly but not too bad. Both of these issues are very minor and would not stop you from driving the car at all. The only modifications that have been made to the car aside from the stereo is true dual exhaust from the factory manifolds back, with a set of Monza dual tip mufflers. I find the sound to fit the car perfectly, a nice deep tone but not overly loud or obnoxious. Overall this car is a great driver that has a lot of potential to make it into a show winning car, drop in a crate motor and take it to the track, or maybe something in between. If your looking for a clean, stock later model C3 this is the car for you. Feel free to contact me with any questions and thank you for looking.

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:11:00 EST
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.

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?
The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.
That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.
