The car has never been restored, but has been painted in four different schemes over the years: Originally the rare
and desirable Arctic Blue with a Red interior, then White with Silver Coves, then White with Black Racing Stripes
and a Black interior in the 70s-80s, and then painted its current Venetian Red with White Coves in 1990. The
interior was replaced in 1990 as well with the original red. A broken speedometer was replaced sometime in the
1960’s, so it has accumulated about 2300 miles on the current speedometer in the last 50 years. I estimate it had
40-50,000 miles when Dad parked it in the early 70’s (Dad maintained a collection of as many as 25 Corvettes at a
time from the 1960’s until the 2000’s). It is a decent looking, maintained, condition #3 “driver” that has
been driven very little over the last 50 years. It starts right up (even in February in 25 degree weather), idles
and drives great.
It is an August 12, 1957 production car with its original 283/245 Hp motor, four speed transmission, and 3.70
non-posi rear end with the correct numbers and dates. It is neither a survivor nor a barn find, but instead a
“rolling restoration”, as I have maintained its mechanicals and re-installed the small parts that went missing
in the 1960’s and 1970’s. The non-original fuel injection unit has been recently replaced with a numbers
correct 283/245 HP dual quad carburetor setup, which is how the car was originally delivered. It is a real 4 speed
car, with the numbers to back it up. 57 Corvettes did not four speeds installed until late in the production year,
so be wary of early cars that were originally three speed cars that had four speeds added later. Real four speed
cars (664 made) were rarer than fuel injected cars (1640 made). I replaced the ORIGINAL clutch in 2014.

Man surprises girlfriend with C7 Corvette

Mon, 07 Oct 2013

How would you react if someone just showed up at your place of work with a new, 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, complete with all the trimmings? While a lot of us would likely be flipping out over the still rare sports car, it's a fair bet many more of us would be responding like Pattie here, whose boyfriend stopped by her work to show her her new C7.
Speechless and shocked as she seems, she does end up taking it out for a drive, despite claiming she wasn't really outfitted to handle the car's seven-speed manual transmission at the time. From the sound of the video, we got the impression that she knew the car was coming, just not that it was anywhere near ready for delivery. It also, as Pattie says, seems like her boyfriend is more excited about the car than she (which, can we blame him?). Take a look down below for the full video of this C7 Stingray delivery.

Chevy exec confirms SS production model reveal at Daytona on Feb 16

Wed, 06 Feb 2013

The 2014 Chevrolet SS will make its racing debut for the 2013 Daytona 500, but the production version of the car will get its official unveiling on February 16 in Daytona, a week before The Great American Race. According to a report by Automotive News, the reveal has been confirmed by Jim Campbell, Chevy's US vice president of performance and motorsports. With the departure of the Dodge Charger, the new Chevrolet racecar will be the only competitor to feature a V8, rear-wheel-drive layout in both street and NASCAR form.
NASCAR fans will be able to see the new fullsize performance-oriented sedan on display in the festivities leading up to the Daytona 500, but the car won't go on sale until later in the year. The Australian-built Chevy SS will be a low-volume performance model, and it will be priced above the 2014 Impala, which starts at $27,535.

GM recalling 250,000 SUVs over door electronics

Mon, 20 Aug 2012

After a door-fire investigation that dates back to February, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially announced a recall today that affects around 250,000 General Motors SUVs for a faulty driver's door module. The recall applies to the Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X from the 2006 and 2007 model years, as well as the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL for vehicles sold and/or registered in the Snow Belt.
Road salt use in these midwestern and northern states can lead to corrosion of the driver's door module on these GMT360 and GMT370 vehicles, which allows water to come in contact with the circuit board. If shorted out, the vehicle's power door locks and power windows will not work, and could possibly lead to overheating and, in some circumstances, a fire. No official word on how many total vehicles caught on fire, but back in June, 28 fires had been reported to the government agency. A fix for the problem is still being worked out, but all affected vehicle owners will be notified by GM.
