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.

We've been on the fence with NASCAR for some time now. On one hand, it's some of the closest racing anywhere in motorsports, with actual passing and door-handle-to-door-handle action as a matter of course. But on the other, it's become template racing - a personality-driven sport more about the drivers than any sort of loyalty to a particular automaker. The Car Of Tomorrow format really rammed that message home, with a racecar's identity coming down to little more than headlamp stickers slapped on the nose. That's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, but we've wondered for some time what's in it for the automakers, who pay big money to stay in a series that has had little increasingly little do with street car sales, let alone innovation.

Apparently General Motors was beginning to wonder the same thing. In a new ESPN report, Rick Hendrick, team owner of Hendrick Motorsports, suggests that GM would have seriously considered leaving NASCAR if it wasn't for the move away from the COT to the new Gen 6 racer. According to Hendrick, GM North America boss Mark Reuss spearheaded the charge away from the 2007 COT and toward a racecar with clearer automaker ties - cars like the new Chevrolet SS racer shown above. Learn more about the fight for a closer-to-production look in the ESPN story at the link.
Now, if we could just get more rear-wheel drive V8 coupes into showrooms....
When Mark Reuss was in LA recently, he sat down to have a few words with the scribes at the Los Angeles Times. When the issue of a hybrid Corvette came up, Reuss answered with "Don't laugh." The General Motors president is a complete fan of the possibility, calling it "attractive" and "really fun," believing it would improve GM expertise and that "people would love it."

Naturally, the president being supportive of an idea doesn't give indication that a hybrid Corvette is on the way. However, with supercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari giving hybrid tech a solid, if remote, place in the performance car world, the inexorable trickle-down of technology means we shouldn't be surprised if and when it does happen.
And now that we have that non-negative half-answer to a speculative question, it would be irresponsible for us not to commence rumormilling for the C8 Corvette. Taking Reuss at his word, the C8 will obviously be a hybrid with all-wheel-drive - the left side wheels driven with electric motors, the right side with the mid-mounted, four-cylinder diesel engine. With coefficient of drag of just .16, figure on a 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time of under 2 seconds and an all-electric range of something like 30 miles at top speed. Don't forget, folks, you read it here first.
If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.
Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 - representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.
