Brief Overview, High-Level Info:  The car comes with the original stock L98 , which has the Bosch Tuned Port Injection system, and  automatic transmission.   There were 39,729 corvettes built for the production year 1985.  My car is 1 of 3,579 built with factory paint code '81' (Bright Red) and interior code red leather and red carpet.  

 Overall Vehicle Condition:   The car should considered a Condition #2 car or Excellent condition for it's age - (Condition #1 would be cars that are completely flawless cars and are the best of the best.  The car should present the same as it did when it was built, flawless).  Condition #2 essentially means the car could win local/regional events and shows, it may have flaws.   The car should represent it's era well and be of the nicest condition possible. The car currently has 69,616 miles on it - it gets driven sometimes so that may go up a little by the time the car is sold, but it would not be a significant amount.

 Vehicle Condition Details:  There are some slight issues/problems/concerns with any of the body, and interior on the car.  The acrylic Roof panel is still in Excellent condition, as well as all of the weather-stripping - original ratchet tool to remove the roof and owner's manual are included.  The car presents original and has a slow  Air Conditioning system leaked. Usually gets it's freon filled in spring and it stays ice cold all summer.  The car has also had the tires, battery, and exhaust changed.  I haven't owned the car for it's entire history.  Paint appears to be in above-average condition;  minor webbing in the paint on back bumper, the paint shows great for the age of car.    Interior is as expected wear shows in the leather seats, center console dash panels.  The instrument cluster works as originally designed and does not have any blacked out spots.  The door thresholds have no wear from climbing in and out of the car because they have custom cover.  As seen in a lot of older cars, the rear carpet shows some signs of age; some of the carpet pile fibers appear to have been vacuumed a little aggressive. The back / rear hatch hydraulic forks need adjustment or replacement they do not stay up on their own. I have owned this car for over 10 years and it has been summer driven and garage kept.

 I have the car for sale through word-of-mouth and some other listing services also, if no bids have been placed I reserve the right to end this listing at any time..

GM to make most cars LTE hotspots for 2015

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 17:59:00 EST

General Motors isn't the first automaker to deliver in-car Internet access, but a proposed plan announced today could make the technology more widespread than any of its competitors have offered. By the 2015 model year, most Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC products in the US and Canada will offer 4G LTE mobile broadband access. Initially, GM will just be pairing with AT&T to deliver this service, but additional carriers will be revealed in the future.
Current in-car Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, but GM says that 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G service and will allow for full Internet access, including streaming video for entertainment as well as services like real-time traffic updates and navigation driving directions. There is also no need for a paired smartphone with this new system, which should make it easier to use, and GM and AT&T will also be working together to develop new apps for customers.
Buyers can expect to start seeing 4G LTE in their cars starting next year, and GM is already planning to expand the service to other global markets as well. All of the information from GM's announcement is posted in a press release below.

2014 Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra full configurators truck in

Sat, 15 Jun 2013 09:02:00 EST

You can now put prices to your wildest option-sheet dreams of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. A microsite for the full-size pickup truck twins has been up since January, and now the full-blown configurator is live and ready to take your virtual orders. The only two chassis configurations available at the moment are the Crew Cab with either a short or standard bed - Regular and Double Cab versions will come later. In Silverado flavors that will run you $32,710 for the short box, $33,010 for the standard box, while the Sierra adds a $1,500 premium to both of those prices, and destination and handling for both models adds another $995.
Since these are American pickups the list of modifications is lengthy, but we added $11,450 in just two steps by starting with the Silverado Crew Cab and standard bed, then checking four-wheel drive and the LTZ Z71 package. Our final truck, resplendent in Brownstone Metallic paint, heated and cooled Cocoa/Dune perforated leather seating and tasty details like chrome recovery hooks, and engine block heater and LED cargo box lighting, rang up $57,285 at the candy store.
They'll be on dealer lots sometime this summer, so now's a good time to start practicing your box-checking.

Read This: Auto Extremist advocates for Corvette as brand with multiple models [w/poll]

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 19:15:00 EST

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.
Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?
