Looks like it may be time to sell my baby. Hate to do it as I have so many things left I would like to do with it but I need to replace the engine in my diesel Suburban and I just don't have the funds to do it right without selling the S10. I will try and describe everything to the best of my memory and be as accurate as possible.Bought it back in December 2010 after looking for over a year for the right truck. It was already lowered with the Belltech package and some paintwork obviously performed, but overall a nice looking truck. It had a New England Patriots airbrushed football player on the hood which required stripping and repainting the first week. It also had gloss black Redrum wheels (don't remember the style name) that were also removed. It came with an Audiovox Prestige alarm system with remote start. It also had aftermarket power windows which I have not done anything with as they have always worked ok. The tailgate handle was relocated to inside the bed. And the Magnaflow exhaust was also already installed. I believe it had somewhere in the neighborhood of 80K miles if I remember correctly.Since then it has been my main daily driver and I have made the following changes:K&N Cold Air IntakeBlazer Front BrakesBelltech Blazer drop spindlesBlazer disc brake rear end (3.42)Snugtop hard tonneau cover (used - painted to match with new locks installed)GM roll panHidden hitch with flip down plate20X8.5 KMC Novas with Vogue 245/40/20 Signature "V" tiresHID'sClear tail lights with yellow film (LED bulbs)LED turn signal bulbs with flasher mod performedBucket seats with center console (seat heater on driver's side)Long overhead console with outside temp/compass feature (not finished)Pioneer AVIC Navigation head unit with backup cameraAll windows tinted with LLumar film (50% on windshield)BedrugRecent repairs/maintenance include intake manifold resealed, driveshaft balanced and carrier bearing replaced, new coolant hoses. Still needs rear main seal replaced and tie rod ends.

With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.
Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. PickupTrucks.com has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.
So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. PickupTrucks.com says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.
Chevrolet's latest road rocket, the Corvette Stingray, is a very quick car. If one needs further proof of that, we recommend they take a look at this video from Hennessey of what is claimed to be the first privately owned C7 Corvette to make a pass down the quarter mile. Not just any quarter mile, mind, this black C7 blitzed its way down the tuner's primary testing dragstrip. The Chevrolet ran the quarter in just 12.23 seconds at 114.88 miles per hour. That is a very quick time for a stock car.
Equipped with the Z51 package and a six-speed automatic transmission, not only does the C7 run a solid time, but it does so with little to no drama. That won't last though, as Hennessey will likely return it to its owner with far more power - we just hope they show a drag run of the completed product. Take a look below to watch the C7's 12.23-second run on video.
