1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo on 2040-cars
Hobucken, North Carolina, United States
Rare first year 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo. It has gold paint with a black top. I am the 3rd owner
of the car. It was purchased by a lady that had it for many years before passing away. It was then purchased by a
friend of mine. I watched him use it as a daily driver and I couldn't let him abuse this beauty anymore so I bought
it and put it in the garage. It's got only roughly 77500 original miles. It's a 400 small block engine. I've
replaced all tires, the brakes, head gaskets, battery, wiring, struts, muffler, and starter that can remember (
since I don't drive the car very often the first start takes a minute). It had a transmission flush and some
general work done. I have replaced the speakers and put a CD player with 3.5 jack in the glove compartment. I've
replaced the front right light bezel and the rims. I have had some carbonator work done but it could use more. I
have replaced the dash and head board lamps and bezels along with the visors, knobs, headrests, and re-detailed the
dashboard. I've had the locks redone as well as started fixing the air condition but it still needs a new hose.
There is some minor rust residue in the wheel wells and some minor bubbling in a couple of places under the canvas
top. There are no tears or rips on the top canvas or in the interior. Car runs pretty good but I don't drive her
enough and hence looking for a good home. I keep her on a trickle charger most of the time. Cosmetic things that I replaced I made sure they fit a 1970 Monte Carlo. Interior is black with a wood grain dash. Car is a automatic. There isn't any
major body damage and to my knowledge all original. All in all a great example off this classic.

There's not much to see here, but if you're one of those waiting for the reveal of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, above is the teaser image that Chevrolet posted on its Facebook page. We've seen the truck in form-fitting camo before, and even less can be made out here beyond those seriously punchy Silverado-esque fenders and the knowledge that the projector-beam headlamps teased previously do indeed work. We'll have to wait until Thursday for a full perusal of the "bold exterior design" and "careful attention given to every detail" we've been promised.
Gathering intel and rumors, magnesium and aluminum contribute to the Silverado's weight loss plan, the purported "High Country" top-tier trim will contribute to luxury pickup truck competition and profit margins and the next-generation small-block V8 will contribute to improved fuel economy. On the engine note, there have been rumors of available V6 engines, and when Facebook user John Jones asked "Where's your answer to that EcoBoost Chevy?", the Bowtie replied "stay tuned on the 13th. We think you'll be pleased...".
Along with the "Raise the Bar" tag, Chevrolet says of the Silverado, "You asked, we delivered." You can watch the reveal live on Chevrolet's Facebook page at 9:30 am EST, this Thursday, December 13. The GMC Sierra 1500 will also be there, and we'll see both in person at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
If you are a big fan of automotive oddities, this may come as a little treat. If you are a Shelby or Mustang diehard, prepare to have your sensibilities violated.
The master fabricators at BigDaddyCustoms are the minds behind what you see above. At first, it appears to be a slightly misshapen custom Mustang, modeled after "Eleanor" from Gone In 60 Seconds, but upon further examination, something appears to be amiss. In fact, the custom shop, based in India, has created an Eleanor replica grafted upon a lowly Chevrolet Optra. While it may take a second for the Optra to ring a bell, you should recognize its badge-engineered sibling, the Daewoo Lacetti, used on Top Gear.
We don't know what star would opt for the Reasonably Priced Car in Shelby's clothing, but it's clearly someone more concerned with the aesthetic than the performance credentials of this automotive mash-up.
The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may expand a recall campaign for faulty brake lamps. The agency is currently looking into complaints that certain 2004-2011 Chevrolet Malibu models as well as some 2007-2009 Saturn Aura sedans may have brake lights that do not illuminate when the driver presses the pedal. Alternatively, the lamps may also illuminate without input from the driver. General Motors recalled 8,000 Pontiac G6 models from the 2005 model year for the same problem, and NHTSA is currently investigating whether to add 550,000 more G6 models built between 2005 and 2009 to the list for the same issue.
In addition, investigators are currently examining 97 complaints from Malibu and Aura owners with the same trouble. If NHTSA adds those models to the recall campaign, more than one million units could be covered. GM, meanwhile, says there have been no accidents or injuries as a result of the problem.
