1965 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe - Only 17,000 actual documented miles! This time capsule was unearthed in 2013 from a spotless, dry garage and is much better than a corroded barn find! If you have been following the saga of the Lambrecht Chevrolet auction, you will have seen this car’s twin (a 396 non SS) sell for $72,500. The car offered here is in superior condition but with a small block. This is an investment grade vehicle.
Mr. Taylor was the original owner – he cherished and pampered this beautiful Artesian Turquoise car since the very first day of his ownership on August 26, 1965. It has been garage kept its entire life and has never been rained on. Mr. Taylor passed away in 1994 and the car was left undisturbed until his wife’s passing in 2013 when I purchased it from the couple’s two adult daughters. The car is completely original – nothing has been altered or changed except for “new” tires in 1973, reproduction battery & cables in 2013, and fresh brakes a few weeks ago. The original paint is exquisite and includes some touched up areas and rock chips. All original paperwork is included – the window sticker, bill of sale, maintenance book, protect-o-plate, and owner’s manual. All receipts from new are included as well as Virginia State inspection slips where the mileage was recorded every six months. The documentation is extensive and the paper trail unbroken. This car has a clear VA title marked “Actual” next to the mileage.
This car is equipped with a silky smooth and quiet 283 2-barrel and Powerglide transmission. You will note in the photos a very rare engine cable anchoring system installed by GM under a motor mount recall dated April 1972. The original invoice included dealer undercoating and the black on the engine is overspray. The seat covers were installed when new and have yellowed but the upholstery below is absolutely perfect and as new. The condition of this car is just astonishing from every angle.
Everything works as original except the clock – frozen in time somewhere in the sixties…
A note about bidding: There is NO RESERVE once the first bid is placed. Your bids will be respected and protected - I will not sell this vehicle out from under you - I will hold it until the end of the auction. This car IS NOT advertised locally or anywhere else.

Not including the women and men who built it, the 2014 Chevrolet SS has only been seen in person by a piddling number of people - fewer humans than would fill the gymnasium at a high school volleyball game. Not including the men and women who built it, no one has driven it. Even so, it is already saddled with two controversies: the way it looks and the way it shifts.

First to that shifting. Did we love the last Americanized Holden, the awesomely sportsome Pontiac G8 GXP, and its six-speed manual? Of course. Do we wish the SS came with a six-speed manual? Of course. But we'd like a toboggan to come with a manual transmission. We'd put a manual transmission on a weasel if we could because we're just wired that way; if it moves, it should come with a stick and a clutch. Or at least the option.
Let's climb down off the ledge, though. We haven't driven the SS and we have no idea how good (or not) the automatic is. And the Hobson's Choice in transmissions when it comes to sport sedans like the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and Jaguar XFR-S and, oh yeah, cars-that-really-should-have-manuals like the Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R and Porsche 918 and every single Lamborghini and Ferrari, for instance, hasn't stopped us from enjoying what is clearly the gruesome, dual-clutched demise of Western automotive civilization. Because in spite of our ululations at the dying of the six-speed light, we understand.
It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.

CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).

Chevrolet handed over the keys to 33 Hot Wheels Camaro Convertible Indianapolis 500 festival cars this week. Race directors get the luxury of driving the droptops around Indianapolis in an ongoing tradition with roots all the way back to the 1960s. The stunt is supposed to remind area residents that the Indy 500 is right around the corner. The cars are our first look at the special Camaro Hot Wheels Edition in convertible form, and they are slated to head to dealers after a one-time production run. The cars also represent the first time in history full-size Hot Wheels have been offered for sale by an automaker.
The cars will be available in both the previously seen coupe bodystyle and this convertible configuration, and will feature metallic blue paint and special wheels with the iconic redline accent. Buyers will be able to choose between the V6-powered 2LT trim and the V8-powered 2SS guise.
Hot Wheels says the original Custom Camaro toy was one of the original 16 1:64-scale diecasts, and it remains one of the company's most valuable collector items today.
