1968 Chevrolet Caprice 2 Door Hardtop on 2040-cars
Lewis, Kansas, United States
Start off by saying, I really hate to sell this car, but I kind of need to, but don't have too. I have had this car for 12 years now, and my dad had it for the 15 years before that. I drove the car for 1 year, and it went down hill so bad, that i parked it, and it has been sitting for 11 years in our Shed. My dad, has known the car since it was brand new. The car was drivin up to the early 80s till the motor lost compression, so the owner of the time rebuilt the motor, and installed the cam bearings wrong, and the motor spun the bearings and ruined the block. My dad got it in 1987, and Put another 327 in it from a 1968 impala, and that is the way it sits today. Motor ran last time it was fired up, which was about 5 years ago. Drove the car into town last time it was fired up, and everything worked fine. So hard to say how it is now. Car has plenty of rust, as is expected with a car of its time. Interior is very rough as is the paint. Came factory with Power brakes, air conditioning, and Cruise control. Not sure what else to tell you about the car, pictures pretty much tell the story. Had/have big plans to restore the car, but am starting to see the writing on the wall. Would love to see it go to a good home, someone who is going to restore it and take car of it. Once again, I do not have to sell the car, but could use the money and the space. I reserve the Right to end the auction early, If i feel the need to. Thanks for veiwing, happy bidding.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray priced from $51,995*Fri, 26 Apr 2013
After months of speculation, Chevrolet has finally revealed the official starting price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The base MSRP for the 450-horsepower Stingray Coupe will be $51,995, while the Stingray Convertible will go for $56,995 (*both prices include a $995 destination fee). This means that the price increase from 2013 to 2014 is just $1,400 for the coupe and $2,395 for the convertible - pretty modest increases considering the upgrade in specifications. Of course, neither price accounts for the sort of dealer markup that might grace early C7 window stickers, especially since less than a third of all Chevrolet dealers will be allocated Corvette models to sell at the car's launch.
Now, these prices are for the base car, so if you're wondering how much a fully loaded Stingray will run, Chevy has given us a good indication of that as well. The coupe we saw on display at the Detroit Auto Show (shown above), for example, would run $73,360 including options such as the $2,800 Z51 Performance Package, $2,495 competition sport seats and the $1,795 Magnetic Ride Control option - just to name a few. Stepping up to the 3LT trim level that brings a full leather interior will run an extra $8,005 over the base price.
While $20,000 in options may seem like a lot, this "as-tested" price still has the C7 competitively priced against rival coupes like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. Speaking of price comparisons, Chevrolet also points out that the C7 Stingray Z51 costs $2,200 less than the C6 Grand Sport while delivering better acceleration (0-60 mph in less than four seconds) and improved track performance (including more than 1 g in cornering).

Chevrolet donates 300 vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first respondersThu, 28 Feb 2013
Super Storm Sandy took out a lot of automobiles in its path of destruction through the Northeast last October. The number surpassed 250,000 at last count, and a few of those were owned by Chevrolet - cars either sitting on dealership lots or waiting at port to be shipped off. Rendered unsellable by the water damage inflicted by Sandy, these vehicles were facing the crusher. But Chevy didn't send them there.
Instead, Chevy had a better idea: It will be donating 300 of these vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders at Guardian Centers in Perry, GA. Chevy is the official automotive partner of Guardian Centers, which is an 830-acre facility that trains first responders in disaster preparedness. Junked cars are practically a consumable commodity there, where a full-size cityscape simulator gives trainees an entire urban center in which to train for all sorts of rescue operations and disaster scenarios.
Chevy says its particular vehicles will be used "in conjunction with role players for wide area searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualty exercises." While grim scenarios all, we're certainly glad there are people out there preparing for the unexpected. While a zombie apocalypse isn't officially on the list of potential disasters to prepare for, when the virus hits, we'll be hot-footing it to Perry, GA to hang with these guys and gals.
