Elmhurst, Illinois, United States

1997 CORVETTE  FAIRWAY GREEN  ONLY 53,300 MILES.  I have owned this car since 2011.  Bought it in Dallas and drove it all the way to Chicago. 
1st year of the C5 and one of the first 200 produced.  This car was a test vehicle built to evaluate the fairway green paint.  It is likely this is the very first fairway green car. 

It is in great condition, low miles, well taken car of.  The paint is in very good condition.  There is one small area of curb rash on driver side lower bumper.  The interior is in great condition but shows some minor wear on the seats.  The carpet is in great shape.  All gauges work perfectly.  Rims are original and in good shape.  Tires have good tread remaining.  Engine and trans run strong.  Tinted Targa top has one area with the tint worn off - see pics.  2012 after winter storage the AC was not working.  It was repaired by D&M in Downers IL and has blown cold air ever since, works great. 
This car gets a lot of attention everywhere I go.

As promised, Chevrolet and GMC are offering a live webcast of the world premiere for the all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500. After being teased with spy shots and blurry images like the one above for ages, now is the time to see the trucks in the metal, for real (well, as 'real' as it gets on a webcast, at any rate).
Shift your eyes down just below to see the reveal as it happens, starting at 9:30 AM EST. We anticipate having loads of images full technical information to share after the webcast, too, so truck aficionados should stay tuned. We'll also be bringing you live images of both trucks too, when we see them on the show floor at next month's Detroit Auto Show.

Chevy Corvette Stingray picks up another award, this time from Automobile

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 16:29:00 EST

The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has picked up another buff book accolade after capturing Road and Track's Performance Car of the Year award. The seventh-generation of America's sports car (sorry Viper, Mustang, et al.) has been named Automobile Magazine's Automobile of the Year.
Automobile's award to the Corvette over competitors is the mirror image of its rival Motor Trend, which named the Cadillac CTS its car of the year over the C7. The CTS was, according to the Automobile team, the closest contender to the mighty Stingray. Great news all around for General Motors it seems.
As for what pushed the Corvette past its distant, four-door cousin, Automobile commended its excellent, 6.2-liter V8 calling the car's performance "simply awesome" while also remarking that it is easier to drive fast than ever before thanks to steering and chassis tweaks. Following a theme set by other publications, there were also plaudits for the interior, of all things, with the buff book complimenting the car's ergonomics and material quality, while also praising the standard seats.

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:27:00 EST

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
