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..

Shipping:  Buyer is responsible for ALL pick up and shipping expenses.

Hot Wheels' Twitter-enabled vending machine coughs up free Camaro diecasts

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 19:29:00 EST

There are still plenty of companies that haven't gotten the whole social media thing down pat yet, but Hot Wheels isn't one of them. During the recent Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Hot Wheels created a lot of buzz for itself by using a vending machine filled with Chevrolet Camaro models, but instead of money to get the cars, show attendees just had to use Twitter.
To get the free car, people were asked to send a tweet to Hot Wheels Canada saying what they liked about the new Hot Wheels Edition Camaro, and including the #ChevyCIAS hashtag. This seemed to be a popular marketing tool, too, as AdWeek reports that the @HotWheelsCanada account more than tripled in followers during the course of the 10-day show. Looking ahead, this could open up even more innovative marketing possibilities using social media.
Check out the video posted below to watch how it works, and while the auto show has ended and the free-car giveaway has too, we're almost certain that some of the 1,500 freebies will make their way onto eBay.

Feds open investigation into Chevy Express, Ford Freestar rust issues

Wed, 28 Dec 2011 16:00:00 EST

'Tis the season... for road salt. And with that, comes rust. And what does rust bring? Well, for Ford and General Motors, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation. According to The Detroit News, NHTSA is looking into potential recalls issues with Chevrolet Express vans and Ford Freestar minivans.
The feds have received five complaints that rust has caused leaking fuel filler pipes on 2003 Express vans. Separately, seven complaints have been filed over excessive rust in the rear wheel wells of 2004 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans. The Freestar and Monterey went out of production in 2007. Neither issue has resulted in any crashes or injuries, according to the report.

Check out the official 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition commercial

Sat, 16 Mar 2013 19:01:00 EST


The Poncho is dead. Long live the Poncho. Like certain other reoccurring personal maladies, the aftermarket community simply can't let the Trans Am go without another flare up. The guys at Trans Am Depot have worked up a quick commercial for their newest creation: The 2013 Trans Am Hurst Edition, and it watches pretty much like you'd expect it to. The footage is comprised of just about every TA male fantasy you can conceive of, from Daisy Dukes and white tank tops to tramp stamps, bikinis and ice cream cones. There simply aren't words for what you'll see below.
Of course, we like our T-Tops as much as the next guy. If you like what you see in the videos, you can pick up your very own TA by heading over to the Trans Am Depot site. The guys even have Chevrolet Camaro-based versions of the Pontiac GTO if the '77 TA treatment is too much for your tastes. Enjoy, but don't say we didn't warn you.
