To start, this is a very rare V54 Option Corvette, only about 2,000 v54's were made and an estimated 150 exist now! The v54 components can be found selling for around $3,000.00 alone! Anyway this car is pristine! It's show quality! Within the last year it had a frame off restoration and a show-car paint job completed at the renown Stingray Shop in Marblehead Ma. This car really moves! With all the work done on it, you tap the pedal and your pushed deep back into your seat! It has 27,000 original documented miles, and clearly has been babied its entire life as seen in the interior.  The interior is totally original, leather is perfect, carpets great (original corvette floor mats) Steering wheel is superb, everything works, and it's loaded! It has power locks, power windows, heat (which is hot), a/c (which is cold), power seats, and even a rear-defroster! It has perfect original glass T-tops, all seals are tight. The "floppy-lights" work perfectly and may be one of my favorite parts of the car! Everything is matching numbers of course, and the parts that have been replaced within the last year are... distributer and cap, alternator, starter, battery, horn, carburetor, and computer (which was custom made as they don't make good ones anymore). I have receipts from the last two years for over $15,000.00 which I would be happy to show any potential buyer. The paint job on this car is pristine, a lot of people say the paint on their car is perfect and then there are scratches and blemishes to be found... but this car had a show-car paint job just completed 3 months ago, you will not find a single imperfection... anywhere! The custom exhaust is adjustable for volume and performance, and Gas isn't even that bad on it, I typically get around 17-20 mpg. I am not happy to let this car go and definitely my favorite car in the world, but I'm moving across the country and won't have the space for it :( Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Chevy gets cracking on Cruze EV fleet testing

Tue, 21 Sep 2010 08:28:00 EST

Chevrolet Cruze EV - Click above for high-res image gallery
The Chevrolet Volt hasn't yet gone on sale, but General Motors is looking at ways of expanding its electric vehicle lineup. Chevy, along with partner LG, is employing a group of all-electric cars in the form of the Cruze. The sedans are part of a demonstration fleet which is located in Seoul, South Korea and is being used to provide data in an electric vehicle research project. The goal is to gather information on driving patterns and charging behavior in addition to consumer acceptance.
The Cruze EVs, along with some Daewoo Lacetti Premieres EVs, are the first fleet of full-size electric vehicles and should provide invaluable information for The General. Staying full-size means not sacrificing cargo space, so the battery pack is mounted to the underbody, leaving the trunk area open for plenty recyclable, canvas grocery bags.

Official USPS Muscle Cars stamps coming to a mailbox near you

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 13:59:00 EST

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.

Are you the 2014 Corvette Grand Sport?

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 15:28:00 EST

When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette Grand Sport.
The first and most obvious tip-off that something is up with this 'Vette revolves around those silver stripes. Obviously the stripes themselves don't necessarily denote a new model. However, when Chevy recently launched its "colorizer" website for the Stingray, there was no provision made for racing stripes - solid colors only.
Grand Sport exhibit number two is actually an incriminating lack of badges. The production Corvettes we've seen to date have all carried Stingray badges on their fenders, just behind the vent. The car seen in these images has no such badges, which is an intriguing omission on an car that looks like a production-spec vehicle otherwise.
