I have a nice 1980 Monte Carlo with a solid body for sale.  

Its got New Paint. A 6 Cylinder Automatic for great gas Milage, New rear Brakes. Good tires & aluminum rims. Odometer shows 12087 miles I'm sure its been around at least once. 

The trunk & floor pans are solid, The car was rustproofed when it was new and they did a real good job. Its just starting to show surface rust stains coming from under the door moldings. Other than that its pretty much rust free. 

Although its a nice car as is this would be a great car to restore or to Resto-Mod I was planning on installing an LS3 engine & overdrive Transmission with a new interior but I don't have time for another project. 

The back seat is pretty good and the seat belt retractors even work. the front seat needs redone or if your going Resto-Mod new seats would be great. 

The Dash needs replaced but they're available from the resto companies. 

Its in Mishawaka Indiana about 100 miles east of down town Chicago.

These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

Fri, 24 Aug 2012 14:58:00 EST

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).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.

GM recalling nearly 4,000 vehicles over airbag concerns

Thu, 31 Jan 2013 13:31:00 EST

Four different General Motors vehicles from the 2012 model year are being recalled over a potential airbag issue. The driver's side airbag shorting bar in the 2012 Buick Verano and 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, Cruze and Sonic might make contact with the airbag terminals, even during a crash. If so, the airbag won't deploy when it should, possibly increasing injury to the driver.
The recall is expected to begin on February 13 for the 3,896 units that might be affected. GM will notify owners who can then take their vehicles to dealers to have the airbag coil replaced. A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration below has more info.

Why does the Corvette Stingray have so many vents? Here's why

Sun, 27 Jan 2013 19:57:00 EST

Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.
Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
If you have about five minutes and you can't get enough information about the new 'Vette, then check out the videos posted below.
