It is totally original except for noted recent work done. Truck was owned since new June '58 by a Kansas farmer. It was used on the farm and trips to town only until 1984 when they bought a new Chevy truck, it was then parked in the barn and still has the 1984 Kansas farm tags on it! We have the original title. She is a 3600 heavy duty stepside long bed. At some point the 17" split rims were replaced with 19.5" tubeless tires. The light blue paint is original, with light surface rust, and 2 rust areas behind front wheel wells. The patina is awesome. This truck also has the original interior, rubber floor mats, 235 6cyl "thrift master" engine, 4 speed transmission, spare tire, wood bed, optional wood side rail extensions, and the original owners manual in the glove box. This week: new gas tank, new brakes and master, new battery, new plugs and wires, new fuel pump, clean carb, etc. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL! ALL ORIGINAL!"
My son and I bought this truck at the farm auction in the barn where it sat 39 years. We transported it by trailer to our mechanic who specializes in old Chevys. We love this truck, but he is expecting a baby and I have too many other projects now, so she goes up for auction: Odometer shows 12,489 miles, actual could be 112,489, but this farmer did not drive except to town maybe once a week at most, a 20 mile trip. This is a one owner farm truck found in a Kansas barn. It is totally original except for noted recent work done. Truck was owned since new in June 1958 by a Kansas farmer. It was used on the farm and trips to town only until 1984 when they bought a new Chevy truck, it was then parked in the barn and still has the 1984 Kansas farm tags on it! I also have the original title. She is a 3600, heavy duty 3/4 ton stepside long bed. At some point the 17" split rims and tube tires were replaced with Chevy 19.5" rims and hubcaps with tubeless tires.

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.
The next Chevrolet Cruze isn't set to go into production for about another year, and we're just now seeing prototypes of the new compact running around here in the States. Not much more has been revealed since we saw the car blasting through the snow in Europe, but we can still clearly see new design elements like the larger grille, slimmer headlamps and redesigned taillamps.

Our spy photographers worked up a composite image of this Cruze prototype alongside the current model, and here, we can clearly see some big visual changes are in store for the new model. The 2015 Cruze's hood slopes downward more dramatically, the windshield is more heavily raked, and the roofline looks more fluid overall. The next-generation Cruze will ride on the new global Delta platform that will also underpin other General Motors vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt and Equinox.
As for what's under the hood, we expect the normal range of gasoline four-cylinder engines (both naturally aspirated and turbocharged), and the compact's new turbodiesel four should carry over, as well. Have a look at the full brace of spy photos in the gallery above.
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.
