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.

2014 Chevrolet SS makes its live debut

Sat, 16 Feb 2013 10:10:00 EST

Chevrolet showed off the new 2014 SS in an airport hangar last night, its first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan in the US since the Impala SS from 1997. We'll have more to say about the SS later today, but this is the sedan that Chevrolet sees as the final piece in restoring its performance credentials. For those of you looking for a manual transmission, however, that wish will go unfulfilled - at least for now: the only two options buyers will have are the color and whether or not they want a sunroof.
We'll work on getting some more angles (in better light) today at Daytona International Speedway, but with fans seeing the car for the first time, we don't hold out much luck of getting a clear shot. So for now, enjoy the high-res gallery above.

GM recalls select Chevy Cruze, Sonic and Buick Verano models over airbag issue

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 15:31:00 EST

General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.
GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.

2014 Chevrolet Impala [w/video]

Can A Fleet Queen Become a Fullsize King?
On paper, the Chevrolet Impala is a pretty strong seller, posting annual sales that have hovered right around 170,000 units for the last two years, but it only takes one trip to practically any rental car agency to discover where the majority of those sales have come from. In fact, General Motors told Autoblog that a full 70 percent of Impala sales last year went to fleet companies for things like rental cars and government vehicles. Logic tells us that this is neither good for resale values nor name equity, so Chevrolet is getting ready to roll out an all-new Impala with improved comfort, styling and technology, hoping to turn the tables on its retail-to-fleet ratio.
Chevrolet's sedans have come on quite strong in the last few months with the introduction of the Cruze diesel and the SS sedan, but while these will likely be low-volume sellers, there's more pressure for the new Impala to perform well as GM looks to slash fleet sales and compete with the wide variety of full-size sub-luxury sedans. Riding on a platform shared with the Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac XTS, the 2014 Impala will compete against the Hyundai Azera, Ford Taurus and Toyota Avalon on the more traditional side, while also looking to take a bite out of somewhat sportier models like the Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger twins and the Nissan Maxima. We headed to sunny San Diego to see if this totally new Impala can stand on its own without the assistance of fleet companies and rental agencies. [w/video
