SELL THIS FINE '49... IT WAS ORIGINALLY ONE OF OUR FAMILY PROJECTS THAT WAS TO BE PASSED ON
FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT. HOWEVER, TO OUR DISMAY, WE FOUND THAT MANY IN THE UPCOMING GENERATIONS ARE MORE
INTERESTED IN CELL PHONES AND FACEBOOK THAN IN AN OLD CLASSIC CHEVY TRUCK.. THAT THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER OF THE EARLY CHEVROLET TRUCKS IS THE 'ADVANCED DESIGN' SERIES PRODUCED FROM 1947 THROUGH
1953..MANY PREFER THE '49 SHORTBED, 1/2 TON, AS THESE WERE LIGHT DUTY HAULERS IN THEIR PUREST FORM. OURS ALSO
HAS THE LIGHTEST GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING OF ANY OF THE 1949 CHEVY TRUCKS.. THIS WOULD INDICATE THAT IT WAS
PURCHASED AS A LIGHT DUTY HAULER AND AS SUCH, LIVED A RATHER PAMPERED LIFE..IN OUR CASE, IT WAS PROBABLY
TRANSPORTING GOOSE FEATHERS TO A PILLOW FACTORY. THE WEIGHT RATING IS ONLY 4600 POUNDS AND IT HAS A CURB WEIGHT
OF ONLY 3100 POUNDS.. NOW, IF WE WERE FORCED TO DO THE MATH, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A PAYLOAD OF ONLY 1500 POUNDS MINUS
THE WEIGHT OF THE PASSENGERS.. NOT EXACTLY HEAVY DUTY HAULING, IS IT ? ? ACCORDING TO THE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER
THAT IS FOUND IN THE FRONT LEFT DOOR JAM, OUR TRUCK WAS BUILT AT THE KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI ASSEMBLY PLANT IN JULY

THE FAMOUS "STOVEBOLT 6"
ACCORDING TO WIKIPEDIA, THESE ENGINES DERIVED THE STOVE BOLT NICKNAME WHEN THEY WERE FIRST INTRODUCED IN 1929..
THEY WERE CONSIDERED AN ENGINEERING MARVEL AND IT SURPRISED MANY TO LEARN THAT NEARLY ALL OF THE EXTERIOR ENGINE
BOLTS WERE 1/4 INCH BY 20 THREAD...THESE WERE THE VERY SAME BOLTS THAT WERE USED BY MANY WOOD STOVE MANUFACTURERS
OF THE TIME, THUS; STOVE BOLT SIX.. AS CAN BE SEEN IN OUR VIDEO, OUR LITTLE TRUCK RUNS EXCELLENT, SHIFTS THROUGH

The official debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is only part of the excitement for fans of Chevy's virtuoso sportscar. Although we got to see the car and some of its preliminary specs in Detroit and Geneva, there is still no word on pricing and some of the juicier data points we've been waiting for - such as confirmed power output, EPA estimated mileage figures and performance numbers. Until then, CorvetteBlogger has gotten its hands on the order guide for the coupe version of the car - in both base and Z51 iterations - revealing tidbits like standard and optional features and available color combinations.
Some other new details made it onto the order guide, such as our first interior specs for the coupe including slightly less hip room and headroom, more shoulder room and the same amount of legroom. To see the full order guide, head on over to CorvetteBlogger. From what we can gather, it sounds like more information will be revealed on April 25 during a party at the Corvette Museum, and for those sun worshipers patiently waiting for a convertible, it would appear you've got another model year to wait through.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.
Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.
As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
