1956 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster convertible. California car with California title and only in the northeast since 2009. Stored in doors and only driven on nice summer days ever since. Stunning paint and body done in Cascade Green with white coves and a beige interior. This vette packs a dual quad 283 motor and a Tremec 5 speed manual transmission. You can take this car on the highway and cruise at 70 MPH with no issues at all. The fiberglass body is un-hit and un-patched. Everything opens and closes perfectly. The vette rides on its original, un-cut and un-patched frame, the underneath is beautiful (see pictures). The paint is just about show quality, super vibrant and nice and flat with a deep shine. There is a couple minor chips near the kick plate when you open the door, and one when you flip up the gas fill door. There is also a scratch on the bottom passenger rear fender that is near impossible to see unless you are down on the ground up close looking for it (see picture). Mind you, these are all minor and do NOT take away from how beautiful this car really is. All the chrome and stainless are in beautiful condition, no scratches, pitting or any type of hazing. All the glass is in excellent shape with no scratches or chips. The windows also go up and down with ease. The convertible top was new 2 years ago and in excellent shape, no punctures and no staining. The whitewall tires, wheels and hubs are all like new condition. The interior is a 9.8 out of a 10. The seat upholstery and the dash eyebrow is all brand new from Al Knock Corvette interiors which is the best you can buy. All the gauges work including the factory tach. All the instruments and original steering wheel were sent out by the previous owner and were completely restored. The carpet, door panels and everything else are in beautiful condition. Not much to really say about the interior except the fact that it is in beautiful condition. The dual quad 283 motor runs absolutely beautifully. It fires right up with out issue, idles perfectly, has plenty of get up and go power and doesn't smoke, tick or have any weird noises. It will run nice and cool around 160-180 degrees even on the hot summer days sitting in traffic. The Tremec 5 speed manual transmission makes this car an absolute delight to drive. You can buzz around town and if need be, jump on the highway and cruise at an easy 70 MPH in 5th gear. The gearbox has a nice tight gear placement and has no slop, it also has a nice short throw in between gears. The clutch has a perfect grabbing point with no shakes or slipping while driving. Going down the road this vette drives like it is brand new. It drives straight down the road with no vibrations or steering slop. If you hit the manual brakes you stop nice and straight with no pulling. This 1956 Corvette is a beautiful car. There are no stories and it is 100% ready for the new owner to enjoy. The car has always been lovingly maintained and cared for. Just get in, turn the key and head off to the beach.

GM recalling over 40,000 Chevy, Pontiac and Saturn models over fuel pump woes

Mon, 01 Oct 2012

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.

2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette wastes no time zooming into Jay Leno's Garage

Thu, 24 Jan 2013

Where else would you expect the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to show up first? Although this time it isn't exactly in Jay Leno's Garage, Leno instead playing an away game at Brown's Classic Auto in Scottsdale, Arizona. Nor does Leno drive the car, instead taking an 11-minute walkaround of the new American sports car with General Motors design head Ed Welburn, the same man who recently brought by a string of classic Corvettes to the talk show host's California compound.
It is, admittedly, a love-fest for the American sports car now featuring 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, but one that also features admissions about previous Corvette seats like "they were kinda rough," and the explanation that labeling the coupe "Stingray" means not having to call it "the base Corvette." On top of that, Welburn also explains the proper application of the term "dashboard." You can watch it all in the video below.
