Up for sale today we have a beautiful 49 Chevy 3100 pickup to was restored to its original glory a few years ago
and since then has undergone a complete overhaul to improve the ride, drive and overall performance of the truck.
The truck was taken down to the bare frame and sand blasted to bare metal and built back up using a Mustang II IFS
up front and a chevy 10 bolt with a 4 link in the rear then the frame was painted satin black after all welding was
complete. A set of QA1 coil-overs was built to the weight and ride height of this truck and this truck rides and
drives like a dream. The truck features power front disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors, completely
rebuilt rear drums and all new brake lines. The steering on this truck is a manual rack and pinion with the
original steering wheel and column re-worked to keep the interior of the truck looking clean and original. All the
glass and rubbers are in good condition. A fresh 327 with a polished dress up kit, Billet Specialties serpentine
pulley system, new Holley 570 carb, a set of block hugger headers and full 2,5" exhaust was installed to give the
performance and sound you would expect from a hot rod. A turbo 350 trans with a 23" Lokar shifter was bolted to
the 327 to move the truck along comfortably down the road. The truck has a brand new 12 circuit wiring harness
installed to make sure everything would be in perfect working condition. A Vintage Air system was installed to
keep the temp comfortable no matter what time of year you want to drive the truck. The wood bed was in good
condition but a little weathered so we re-painted the slats and re-stained the wood. The wheels are 18x9" up font
and 20x10" out back

Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America's sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with "unique style." The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for the new body bits, which suggests the conversion shouldn't add too much more weight to the Corvette. Along with a few mechanical tweaks, the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon could breeze past the 200 miles per hour barrier.
Provided that they get enough interest, Callaway estimates they will be able to effect the changes on the Chevrolet for around $15,000, and says the conversion work should be available through its network of dealers. You can check out the brief press release below for more information, or head over to the Callaway site to plunk down a deposit - but before you do, we want to know... do you find this C7 wagon interesting?

The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.
Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.

The Chevrolet Volt hasn't yet gone on sale, but General Motors is looking at ways of expanding its electric vehicle lineup. Chevy, along with partner LG, is employing a group of all-electric cars in the form of the Cruze. The sedans are part of a demonstration fleet which is located in Seoul, South Korea and is being used to provide data in an electric vehicle research project. The goal is to gather information on driving patterns and charging behavior in addition to consumer acceptance.
The Cruze EVs, along with some Daewoo Lacetti Premieres EVs, are the first fleet of full-size electric vehicles and should provide invaluable information for The General. Staying full-size means not sacrificing cargo space, so the battery pack is mounted to the underbody, leaving the trunk area open for plenty recyclable, canvas grocery bags.
