I have too many cars and have just finished this project. And it is time for me to move onto my next project. You are looking at a 1988 Chevy Monte Carlo SS with T-tops, bucket seats with a floor console. I am only the 3rd owner. The gentlemen that owned it before me, is a 76 year old man who bought it in 1996 with 52K on it. I have the title to prove it. About 50K ago (at around 82K) he put in a GM 305 replacement motor. The car runs and drives excellent. It has a lifter tick at idle. The previous owner told me that it has always done that, even when the motor was brand new. If you bring the motor up to 1500 RPM it goes away. Transmission shifts beautifully. Mechanically it has always been well maintained. It gets good gas mileage and has just enough power. Has a nice posi 373 gear rear end. The interior is in good condition. Certainly the upholstry on the seats could use some attention. But the good news is, the interior is 100% complete in unrestored condition. Everything works in the interior & exterior, except for the cruise control and the A/C. The previous owner did a great job maintaining the car, but did not maintain the rust. And that is where I came in. I have two friends that own a professional body shop and I spent $3,000 in paint & bodywork alone to get the car to look this good. Yes the frame, tranny mount and floors, especially behind the front seat have been patched (sheet metal.) But welded in, fiberglass and done right. I would call it a period correct restoration. As you can see no shortcuts were taken on the body. And it came out great! There are several paint imperfections, that need to be touched up or finished. Most are unnoticable. The car has brand new SS decals. The raised white letter tires are in great shape. The rims were sandblasted and look new. The T-tops do leak some during heavy rain (they all do.) 1988 was one of the last full frame Chevrolets ever produced and 1988 was the last year for this body style Monte Carlo SS. The last Monte Carlo SS to roll off the line, was a Silver T-top just like this. This is within one of the last few thousand made. It only cost me $32 to register due to it's antique plate status. I get thumbs up and comments everywhere I go. My reserve is very low and I have much more into it. Bid with confidence. Check my feedback. Thank you

More Corvette Stingray Factoids: Vanishing panel gaps and 26-mpg LT1

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 17:00:00 EST

During January's Detroit Auto Show, we managed a longer than expected wandering tag-team interview with C7 Corvette chief engineering exec Tadge Juechter (pictured above), and LT1 engine boss Jordan Lee (pictured below). They are, quite honestly, two of the very nicest bigshot lads to ever walk the engineering corridors of an American manufacturer. Both are enthralled by what they're doing for a day job. So are we.
We've followed the pre-sale anticipation for the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray like an Oreck vacuum yanking every speck of dirt from a well-trampled carpet. Everything is reportable and contains a grain of further knowledge about this dramatically important and cheered-for car, as it continues to be pressured into representing all that is superior about the American dream. The Corvette wears one heavy cloak.
So, most of what was talked about has been expertly reported already right here on Autoblog. But, looking through our notes again, both Jeuchter and Lee added facts to the buzzing mix.

2013 Chevy COPO Camaro announced with two new engines and manual option

Thu, 07 Mar 2013 18:28:00 EST

Chevrolet is following up the 2012 COPO Camaro with another limited run of the drag-strip-ready production car for 2013. Ditching the superchargers, the 2013 COPO Camaro can only be equipped with one of three naturally aspirated V8 engines, and other new features include the option of a manual transmission, new front springs, some minor styling changes and a lower starting price of $86,000. All cars are designed to abide by the rules of the NHRA's Stock Eliminator or Super Stock classifications, depending on in which series buyers wish to enter their Chevrolet Camaro.
Returning for 2013 is the 427-cubic-inch V8 producing 425 horsepower, but the new engines include a 325-hp 350-CID V8 and a 375-hp 396-CID V8. Buyers can select to purchase all three engines, and each will be matched with the sequence number of that car; the track-only COPO cars will not have vehicle identification numbers and can't be registered for street use.
Chevrolet is also offering unique enthusiast-specific options such as a COPO Build Book and the opportunity for owners to help assemble their car's engine at the Chevrolet Performance Build Center in Wixom, MI.

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 09:25:00 EST

UPDATE: The trucks have been revealed. Click here for all of the official details.
As promised, Chevrolet and GMC are offering a live webcast of the world premiere for the all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500. After being teased with spy shots and blurry images like the one above for ages, now is the time to see the trucks in the metal, for real (well, as 'real' as it gets on a webcast, at any rate).
Shift your eyes down just below to see the reveal as it happens, starting at 9:30 AM EST. We anticipate having loads of images full technical information to share after the webcast, too, so truck aficionados should stay tuned. We'll also be bringing you live images of both trucks too, when we see them on the show floor at next month's Detroit Auto Show.
