Up for auction is one 1993 Chevy S10 King Cab Pickup. This has been a project of mine for the past year or so. It is only for sale because I have acquired an S10 Blazer project and can't keep both. This truck has been my daily driver and parts hauler for my street rod business since I have owned it. I wouldn't be afraid to drive it anywhere. The truck itself has just over 198,000 miles but the engine has been replaced. I was told it was a GM replacement but I have NO proof of that all I can tell you is that at a 3,000 mile oil change the oil is still brown, not dirty and black, and that it doesn't use oil between changes. It is fuel injected and runs, drives, idles excellent. It drives like the ones I had back in the 90's when they were new. I believe it has the original clutch in it and I have not replaced that. I have spent over $3,000 on it in the time I have owned it. I intended to put a V8 in it but after seeing how good it runs and finding that it gets 24-25MPG hwy, I decided to leave the engine alone. The AC has been converted to 134a and has a VERY slow leak. It could stand Freon right now. The AC was charged almost a year ago and it has taken until now to leak down. My intent was to gas it and leave it alone since it stayed up almost a year. Under the hood is very clean and the exposed surfaces of the motor are still aluminum colored not oily and dirty. The following are the new parts I have installed since I owned it:

 

17x7 American Racing Torq Thrust Wheels with 215/45 and 235/55 Nexen tires ( approximately 3,000 miles )

Western Chassis 2" drop spindles

Western Chassis 2" drop coils

3" rear drop blocks

Front Brake Hoses

Front Ceramic Brake Pads

Inner and outer wheel bearings

Brake Rotors

Wheel Seals

Front Shocks

New Rear Window Rubber (Replaced Sliding Window with a flat glass)

New Pop Out King Cab Window hardware (pivots and latch hardware, screws, etc)

Tinted Windows

New Tailpipe (muffler had been replaced when I bought it)

Grille

Front Marker Lights

Front Parking Lights

Taillights

Front Smooth Bumper

Blazer Rear Bumper

Aluminum Fender Trim

Billet Specialties Shifter

Outside mirrors replaced with smaller style mirrors

It just had the oil changed and a new air filter installed

Front air dam

Drivers side door hinge pins and bushings.

The interior is what you would expect from a 1993 truck with 198K miles. The seats aren't torn but they are stained in places and the carpet also has some stains. The cloth on the door panels could stand attention. The pics of the interior are worth a thousand words.

 

Over all this is a really good truck you can go to a cruise in as is or you could continue to make a few improvements and have a really nice truck. It gets compliments everywhere we take it and when we wanna hit a cruise in and leave the old car at home, we have been driving the S10. Its very comfortable and cruises at highway speeds no problem. It never runs hot. It drips a small drip from the trans seal but that's all. The rearend seems to be fine and doesn't make noise.

 

The only problems I know with the truck are the following:

It has had the king cab jump seats removed. I intended to put the speakers in the sides of the cab but didn't get that completed

The headliner board is out and will be included so the new owner can re-cover it or LMC has the updated ABS plastic one.

It has rust  (Visible but not holes) in the left lower cab corner that will need addressed if the truck is painted. Right now you don't really notice it when the truck is sitting unless you get down and look.

The AC needs Freon as mentioned above

It has its share of dings and scratches you'd expect for its age. Its had the plastic bed liner removed which shows typical rubbing on the bed ribs from the liner. The bed isn't beat up and dented up though. I had intended to do a spray in. The body has some shallow dents that aren't easy to get a photo to show and that aren't visible in all light conditions.

 

This is a really solid truck and I have done my best to describe it fairly and accurately. I believe in fair eBay listings.  I have looked for a good king cab for a long time and this is the one I chose. That speaks for its condition. I have owned many of these.  Its better than 95% of the ones you will find of its age. I wouldn't be selling it if I hadn't found an S10 Blazer just as solid. If you are local, come have a look, bring cash and someone to drive your old truck home because you will buy this truck! If you have questions call 423-823-2111 before 10PM EST and I will be glad to talk to you and/or answer your questions. I have a reserve set for the truck and the Buy It Now price. You would be hard pressed to find one then put this much new stuff on it, for the Buy It Now price.


Truck sold AS IS WHERE IS. It is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. Continental US Bidders only. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer and I will try and make it easy for your shipper to pickup as I can. Payment is by cash in person or wire transfer ONLY. Title will NOT BE RELEASED until payment is made in FULL. Thanks for looking.

Watch how Corvette Racing's new collision-avoidance radar system works

Fri, 22 Mar 2013 20:00:00 EST

When it comes to technology used in racecars, we generally expect it to trickle down to production cars, not the other way around. Well, Pratt & Miller has developed a new rear-facing radar that operates in a similar fashion to what we're used to in modern blind spot detection systems, only it is also capable of tracking cars as they approach and relaying vital information to the driver via a large display screen.
The innovative radar system debuted at last weekend's 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing, and this system makes perfect sense for endurance races like this since the cars sometimes have to drive through the night and in poor weather conditions.
The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify.

Why the Corvette's Performance Data Recorder can be illegal in some states

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 13:28:00 EST

The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
