Up for sale here I have a rusty original 1949 Chevrolet 3100 short bed rat rod or parts truck. I would not advise buying this truck if you are wanting to build a shiny show truck it's to far gone but all the fenders are usable if you can work the dents out and the rockers are nice. There is rust in the frame on the passenger side between the cab and bed (see pic). The running boards and tailgate have lots of holes in them as we'll. The hood looks good but I'm sure there is rust in the brace by the hinges. There is rust in the floor, kick panels, cowl, cab corners, doors, beltline and all the other spots mentioned before. The truck is very complete and missing very few parts that I'm aware of. Mainly the top of the seat, the drivers side headlight trim, the carb, the air cleaner, and the hood side emblems. All the dash parts are on it as well as all the window garnish moldings. It has its original engine (locked up) and 3 speed trans. The key is still in the ignition. The truck has a clear Ks title in my name and is titled to the engine number by the dipstick which is how these trucks were titled when new. There's no body tag on the truck. The truck rolls fine and will have tires that hold air for easy loading. The brakes don't work at all. The factory bumpers are both on the truck and I think they're pretty straight. The glass is all in the truck and the only cracked piece is the rear window. All of the glass is old and the windshield is hazy around the edges. If you are wanting to build a rat rod that looks like its been in a field for 20 years than this is the truck for you but if your wanting to build a shiny custom it's not unless you want to rob some parts off of it. This is a no reserve auction and the truck is for sale locally so the auction may end at anytime before a bid is placed. If the truck doesn't bring the starting bid it will be parted out and crushed. Full payment due within 7 days and the buyer is responsible for shipping. Call 785-220-4411 with questions or email. Thanks and good luck.

The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has picked up another buff book accolade after capturing Road and Track's Performance Car of the Year award. The seventh-generation of America's sports car (sorry Viper, Mustang, et al.) has been named Automobile Magazine's Automobile of the Year.

Automobile's award to the Corvette over competitors is the mirror image of its rival Motor Trend, which named the Cadillac CTS its car of the year over the C7. The CTS was, according to the Automobile team, the closest contender to the mighty Stingray. Great news all around for General Motors it seems.
As for what pushed the Corvette past its distant, four-door cousin, Automobile commended its excellent, 6.2-liter V8 calling the car's performance "simply awesome" while also remarking that it is easier to drive fast than ever before thanks to steering and chassis tweaks. Following a theme set by other publications, there were also plaudits for the interior, of all things, with the buff book complimenting the car's ergonomics and material quality, while also praising the standard seats.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall notice for a small number of General Motors fullsize vans due to possible rollaway concerns. On certain 2013 Chevrolet Express and 2013 GMC Savana models, it is possible to remove the key from the ignition without the shifter being in park.

Only 980 total units are being affected by this recall, and GM is fixing the issue by replacing the ignition cylinder and associated keys. Affected Chevy vans were built during most of November and December while its GMC counterpart was only built for a week in November. The recall goes into effect on January 23, and to find out if your vehicle applies to the recall, the GM and NHTSA contact numbers can be found on the official recall notice, which is posted below.
Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:
