2004 Chevy Corvette Z06 currently with 42,101 miles, mostly highway. Comes with an extended drive-train warranty that is transferable and remains in effect until Mar 2016 or 80,000 miles, whichever comes first. I am willing to pay any fee required to transfer the warranty to the next owner. What can I say about this car....if you know what you are looking at, you basically already know how the car is equipped. 405HP with 6-spd manual trans, sliver body, black leather interior. Bose sound system. Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Factory chrome wheels. This car was from a Hendricks SC dealership and it was moved to their Largo, FL dealership, which is where I purchased it in Feb of 2013. I wanted a Florida car because they have no corrosion issues from winter climates. This car was absolutely SPOTLESS. It is so fast and powerful that I sometimes wonder if it is actually an all stock motor. The only reason why I am selling this beautiful car is to free up cash to put into a new business that my wife and I have started. When I drove this car home from Florida, I was amazed that it averaged over 28-1/2 mpg over a 1400 mile drive, even with the AC on the whole time. That is amazing gas mileage considering that this is a high performance car. The car is located at my home in northern NJ (Andover 07821). I paid almost $35K for this car only 19 months ago, so this is a good deal for whoever buys it. This a NO RESERVE auction, highest bid wins it. I require a deposit to be paid thru Paypal within 24 hrs of auction end. Balance to be paid in cash or bank transfer within 7 days. No international bidders or shipping. This a LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. If you are from out of state, YOU must make any needed arrangements to have the car shipped or picked up if need be. Car must be picked up within 14 days max. I am willing to deliver this car at no charge to anywhere within a 100 mile radius, but only after it has been paid in full FIRST. Buyer will not be unhappy with this great Corvette Z06.

Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.
Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.

The majority of consumers are more or less priced out of the market.
Electric cars are gaining popularity with the general public, but are they still too expensive? According to a survey 1,084 consumers by Navigant Research, a consulting firm located in Boulder, CO, 71 percent want their next car to cost under $25,000, while 41 percent won't go a cent above $20K. Looks like people are even thriftier than we'd originally thought.
Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.
But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.
