Your looking at a nice 1960 Impala Convertible that will make a very nice car when finished. I'm listing it for my brother who got it in a trade last year and was intending on restoring it, but just don't have the time. It is a very solid car, with the only rust found in trunk pan. This is a very small area as you can see in pictures and will not require a whole trunk pan to repair. Car runs good, does not smoke and runs smooth. we have only drove it on and off trailer, and around yard, apears to shift good. Has the 348 Automatic with power brakes and power steering. Car was repainted before he got it, not a bad job, looks good enough for a driver, may buff out and look better. Has one small dent in on right rear quarter panel that was done while in storage, no other dents that we have seen. Floors are very solid. Interior is in bad shape, but is all there to be restored. Have some new interior in boxes like carpet and padding, seat covers, convertible top pads, and skin in white. Don't know if the power top works, but all parts seem to be there for it. All chrome and stainless appears to be in good shape and all with car. This car is set at a very modest reserve, and will not take alot more to make a very nice car. Bid to win. Car is sold as is where is, with no warranties. You are welcome to come and inspect car at its current location. A $1000 depsite required within 48 hours of auction end, balance due with 7 days unless other arrangments made with seller. Buyer responsable for pick up or shipping, we, will assit with loading. Car is for sale locally, reserve the right to end auction early due to local sell.

What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them.

That's giving headaches to marketing folks across the automotive industry. "It's tough. In 1985 there were about 75,000 names trademarked in the automotive space. Today there are 800,000," Chevrolet's head of marketing, Russ Clark, told Automotive News. Infiniti's president, Johan de Nysschen, echoed Clark's sentiment, saying, "The truth of the matter is, across the world, there is hardly a name or a letter that hasn't already been claimed by one car manufacturer or another. You can go through the alphabet - A, B, C and so forth - and you will quickly see that almost all available letters are taken."
What has that left automakers to do? Get creative. In the case of Infiniti, it made the controversial move to bring all of its cars' names into a new scheme, classifying them as Q#0 for cars and QX#0 for SUVs and crossovers. So the Infiniti G, which was available as the G25 and G37, is now the Q50. The FX37 and FX50 are now the QX70.
Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.

From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.
As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.
The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.
