here we have a 65 impala wagon with belair trim. original owner ordered it with a/c, all the chrome he could get, i have never seen a 65 with this much chrome. Manual steering, manual brakes. i have a power rear window and harness to put into the car. He drove it to work everyday 5 miles round trip. In 84 he rear ended a truck, drove it home and parked it in the basement. There it sat until his passing last year. It runs and moves but the brakes are shot.. The motor smokes of course but runs like a sewing machine. The carb leaks and needs to be rebuilt. Basically every system needs to be gone thru. The passanger side inner and outer tie rod is bent, the tow truck that picked up the car hooked it around them and bent them.The car is very solid with some minor rust thru in 1 spot on both back windows. The carpet is more than likely gonna need to be replaced, the seats and headliner are actually pretty decent. The title was dated but is unsigned by a purchaser, signed by seller. This is not a 9 seater. Im trying to be as honest as possible, if you have any questions feel free to call me at 314-809-7048. Please leave a message if no answer as i work nights and am sometimes out of cell service. Thanks

2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra introduced
With all of the attention given to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray lately, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's already well along in production, yet tooling up for the new C7 has only just begun. In fact, production of the outgoing C6 generation in Bowling Green, Kentucky just halted on Thursday.
As the C6 has aged, production numbers have predictably ebbed along with demand, but this year, the addition of the 427 and 60th anniversary models resulted in an uptick in vehicles built - this, despite a model year shortened by around 25 percent to accomodate the new model changeover. The final C6 Corvette ever, No. 13,466 built this year, was a white 427 Convertible destined for the General Motors Heritage Center museum. The car's 7.0-liter V8 heart was assembled by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter himself.
In total, Bowling Green pushed out 215,100 C6 Corvettes over nine years. If you're still a C6 fan at heart and are hoping to get a good deal on a phase-out model, step lively - Chevrolet reportedly had about 6,100 unsold units, which Autoweek suggests is good for around five and a half months of supply at the model's current sales rates. Given that demand will likely slacken even further as the C7 draws closer, that should be a big enough stockpile to keep dealers satisfied until 2014 Stingrays begin showing up on their forecourts in December.
The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.
That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.
