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.

Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).

It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.
It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.

That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.
Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...
