Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : .This ad features a really nice car I am selling from a friendís collection. He recently had a his first child and
has decided to thin his car herd so he can focus on his growing family herd! So while he is ready to cut this car
loose it is not a forced sale, more of a common sense sale. This car does not have the correct engine/transmission
but instead has a 454 V-8 and 400 TurboHydramatic transmission out of a 1974 Chevelle which is a very suitable
upgrade and a 12 bolt posi-traction differential. This is a real SS, but originally was a 350 V8. It runs strong
and looks great. As you read through the write up you will see everything has either been rebuilt or replaced
mechanically on the car. This is a great driver and ready to go as it sits. Now I should qualify that usually
"driver" quality on eBay usually means piece of crap. Let's be clear this is a really nice car, but by no means a
trailer queen either, hence a great car to drive, and will show well at most local car shows and cruise-ins. The
car collects lots of attention whether it's cruising down the street or parked.
Finish -- Grade A: Bright red paint is a fresh two stage paint. Re-paint was very through and there are no signs
of the original green metallic paint. Very nice shine/luster and it looks as good in person as it does in the

specifications. Fresh installation.
Engine Grade A: Original 350 was missing when the car was purchased. Currently the engine compartment holds a 1974
Chevrolet 454 with 4BBL. The intake and heads are 1966 Chevrolet Passenger parts a top a 1974 454 Chevelle 454
block. It is a well thought out combination that provides a gas pump friendly compression. Engine is clean and
show ready detailed. Installation is clean and professional and stock in appearance. Engine is equipped with brand
factory chrome valve covers, is painted the correct era paint. Engine was professionally rebuilt when owned by a
previous owner but came with no receipts. The motor is clean inside (valve covers were removed for inspection) and
is free of any noises or knocks, and there is no smoke upon start-up cold or warm, and is free of any oil or
coolant leaks, supporting the claim of a recent/fresh rebuild. Engine has a slight lopey idle but pulls 25 inches
of vacuum, the carburetor has been modified and freshly rebuilt with parts from Cliff's HP and dialed in to the
engine modification combination and pulls smooth right off idle without hesitation through acceleration. Engine is
equipped with functioning factory style electric choke that works as designed by the factory. Engine pulls hard
under acceleration, no black smoke, and carburetor responds better then fuel injection. Engine features new
starter, alternator, radiator, hoses, plus fresh tune-up with cap, rotor, wires, and plugs. Brackets are all
factory and period correct and installation is professional. Car also features a brand new four row radiator (not a
re-core), with 7 bladed fan with thermostatic factory style clutch.
This car looks great driving down the road, and frankly, even up close, it is very presentable for most local car
shows or cruises. It is a very nice car to drive with smooth acceleration, and clean comfortable cabin. The
performance idle through the chambered mufflers makes it a hit at the cruise in or at the stop light. The car has a
strong running 454 which is desirable upgraded and greatly improves the overall driving experience of the car. Ride
is firm, but comfortable for a long drive. Operation is very reliable and without issue and the engine pulls hard
off idle up to 5000 rpm. It is a lot of fun to kick down at a roll as the car sets you back in the seat and smokes
the tires. The suspension launches straight with no wheel hop when you mat it and spins the tires without brake
torquing. The car as is would make a great reliable, daily driver that would be a blast to drive everyday to work.
It is really a fun car to drive with its throaty exhaust and excellent power. This car offers a lot of potential
with some light trim work will only will only improve the value of this car.
Other then some minor interior detailing, this car needs nothing else replaced and is road ready for cruising.
Mechanically it has been totally gone through and all maintenance items (battery, alternator, brakes, radiator,
etc) are new and have been replaced! You can drive this car literally anywhere without issue. So if doing a full
restoration or building a bad news street terror is outside your skills level but your looking a for a great
musclecar this the car for you. When you consider the full restoration numbers matching cars run $50K plus and most
of the cars below $10K, well let's just say are in need of a lot of work.
That said I have tried my best to represent this car as honestly as possible, however it is sold as is and there is
no warranty implied or otherwise stated.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.

Chevy to show redesigned Captiva in Geneva, will it come to US rental lots?

Wed, 27 Feb 2013

Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.
Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.

GM already raising prices on 2014 Silverado and Sierra pickups

Mon, 14 Oct 2013

General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
