Today we have listed for sale a 1960 Corvette two top convertible. This is a gorgeous car with all the right stuff - it's clean, correct engined, super dependable and is ready for you. This belongs to the Chevrolet dealer that I have worked with for 15 years, and I had helped him find the car when he purchased it. The only, and I do mean the only, reason he is selling it is he has ordered and recieved a new 2014 Corvette (yes in red) and only has so much room in his garage at home - and I am listing it for him. He is a dealer, this is his personal car with the title in his name, and the bill of sale will be from them, nothing funny here, the title in the name of the original owner is in hand and available.   I will do my best to describe it so that you feel you know it.. It's hard to show the total story of this car in the words I use, but I have added as many pictures as possible - I tried to use pictures that covered the overall feel and look of the car. These pictures were mostly all taken at Evergreen Air Museum - and many in front of a Douglas C-47 Skytrain that was part of the Normandy invasion in 1944. You will also note the Spruce Goose a Saturn rocket and other planes in the background. Evergreen is gracious in letting us use their planes and facility as a backdrop for these pictures. If you're ever in the McMinnville are please stop and see them - they have not only the air museum but an aerospace museum and an indoor water park! I use lower resolution so that anyone in the world can download them with relative ease. Please be aware that this car is advertised and for sale locally, nationally and globally, and we do reserve the right to end this auction at any time if the vehicle sells before auction ends. photo DSCN2802_zps7a9bd62d.jpg  photo DSCN2797_zps5b0b3b4d.jpg  photo DSCN2790_zpsb0597c67.jpg  photo DSCN2805_zps64769698.jpg  photo DSCN2807_zpsb9a49d67.jpg  photo DSCN2605_zps466a0de0.jpg  photo DSCN2609_zps7bd6fa0b.jpg  photo DSCN2612_zpsdc5a865e.jpg  photo DSCN2613_zpsa18963d1.jpg  photo DSCN2611_zpsae85df40.jpg  photo DSCN2618_zps6f93c484.jpg  photo DSCN2621_zps1d241c66.jpg  photo DSCN2624_zps25ea9ad8.jpg  photo DSCN2625_zps2e61db88.jpg  photo DSCN2626_zpse9fe8def.jpg  photo DSCN2627_zps090a6d44.jpg  photo DSCN2628_zpsda4f893f.jpg  photo DSCN2638_zpsef963187.jpg  photo DSCN2639_zps4618f647.jpg  photo DSCN2640_zps48718182.jpg  photo DSCN2641_zpse0a9aefe.jpg  photo DSCN2642_zps6ffeb4b4.jpg  photo DSCN2643_zps389b886c.jpg  photo DSCN2644_zpsa560f036.jpg  photo DSCN2645_zpse9b2d52a.jpg  photo DSCN2646_zps642cda5e.jpg  photo DSCN2648_zps701d9be6.jpg  photo DSCN2647_zpsf4b4bc44.jpg  photo DSCN2650_zps971ca2ea.jpg  photo DSCN2652_zps02571bd1.jpg  photo DSCN2654_zps10b1d1c4.jpg  photo DSCN2656_zps2ffb7689.jpg  photo DSCN2769_zpsd105f05f.jpg This very collectible Corvette is definitely for sale and definitely on the money price wise. If you are SERIOUS about the car - please call my cell # 503.580.6225 if I don't answer the first time - try again later - if I am at work I may not be able to answer your call. Please be considerate of the time. This is an amazing car - one you can drive, enjoy, preserve and show with pride. Buy it today and be the envy of those who hesititated and missed. 

Classic Corvettes - we've all seen them, some of us have driven them, some have owned them - and you've probably been waiting - waiting for that 'just right' 'Vette to come along. Every once in a while one comes along that is super clean, super nice, and has 'all the right stuff'. This is one of those cars -  years ago the dealer that I work for sought out a '59 or '60 Corvette with some very specific equipment (red/4speed/dual quads and nice) - we searched for quite some time and found this car out of Seattle. The owner wanted a gorgeous car, as correct as possible, but not a car to keep in a bubble - he wanted to drive it, have fun with it, for the car to be dependable and enjoyable. Many times these cars hit a couple of the boxes but rarely all of them. This car checks every one of his boxes. It was on a lot there, but consigned by a gentleman who had spent an extensive amount of time and money and was super fussy. He had gotten it from a man who had spent over $24,000 having restoration work done at Ken's Klassics in Muscoda Wisconson in 2007. Before that, we don't know a lot of history on the car. We will go through what we DO know from front to back. This car is a Roman Red with Ermine White cove 4-speed car with a red auxiliary hardtop and a black soft top. The car was produced around February 29, 1960. One thing I can tell you for certain is that it's one of the nicest driving solid axle Corvettes I have ever driven, and the owner of the car agrees with that - he's had several. The engine casting # is 3756519, and the engine pad stamping # is 0104354 / FU222CU, this is correct for this car and appears to be its original 283 / 270HP engine. The distributor casting # is 1110891 0B9, Generator casting # is 1102096, Right exhaust manifold is 3750558 / left is 3749965. The starter casting # Is 1108762, the crank pulley is 3756328 and the rear axle casting # is 3707306. This is a solid lifter engine that was rebuilt by the owner previous to who had the restoration done. At that time it showed 38,000 miles. The intake manifold part number is 3739658, the front Carter carb (no choke) has a cast # of 6-1310 and the rear one is cast 6-1277. The engine cranks and starts as it should, has the right rumble and idle, and is an excellent runner and driver. Temp. controlled Multi-blade fan and clutch are in place. It appears that everything is in place, and I have taken pictures of everything I could. Is it all # match? You will have to decide, all I can do is present what is there. The transmission is a T-10 and was replaced in 2008. A Muncie 4 speed had made it's way to the car (the original T-10 probably broke) and it was restored by Ron Worthen of Garden Grove Ca. The trans case is iron, T10-1b with a date code of 2-17, the T10-7B aluminum tail 02-3-60, side cover 148B is 2-17-60, and the rear plate 148 is 12-9-59. The trans itself was $2000 outright. Another $3600.00 was spent at Rick Stark Corvette in June of 2008 - I believe this is when and where the T10 was put back in along with the original shifter. Again, the car functions, drives, starts stops and drives amazingly and nicer then I had expected. The steering sector shaft, worm gear and sector shaft roller wre found to be worn in 2010, so this was all replaced and put back in the car to the tune of 1300 bucks. The wheels on the car are all stamped K186 / 5/15 and 12/3 (one is 6/3) and the one in the trunk is stamped K186 12/3 by the stem. The tires are like brand new B.F. Goodrich Silvertown 6.70x15 wide whites. Wheels covers all very nice with no markings or anything on the backside as sometimes happened. The car stops straight, stops right, steers well and does everything it should, and definitely better than most. Getting past the # stuff - here's the coolest thing about the car - everything works. It would appear that most of the soft parts - the ones that get all cripsy and old - have been replaced. The weatherstrips are soft and supple, the seats not brittle etc. It also appears that the carpet may be original. The odometer reads 42909. Odo and speedo work. Dash lights work, heater works. The radio is a Wonderbar that is converted to Am/Fm Stereo and has rca outputs on the back for some great cruising tunes. All the glass is good - the windshield has LOF markings but doesn't appear to be date specific to the car and has some typical minor wiper scuffing - the wipers work. The tach is the correct 7000 rpm tach and it works. All the guages work. Courtesy light is an option I think and it works. Car has 4 new matching T3 headlamps. High beams work, horn works. Doors lock and unlock with the key as they should. The car has been a non smoking car, no burns, rips or tears anywhere. The car has a new black soft top - you will see in the pictures it's a little wrinkly as I didn't fully latch it, but it and the rear window appear as new. The auxiliary hardtop is in super nice shape, the inner liner is a dielectric stamped type material and it's nice, all its glass is good too. An original owners manual is included as well as a owners/operators manual and manual for the radio. The body, paint and chrome on the car are beautiful, and not overdone. We've had many people ask if it's original paint, as they can't tell, which I think is the best sign of a good 'Vette restoration - not over the top or overdone. Is clean and nice, very little orange peel, and the fiberglass looks pretty darned good. There is a slightly thin place on the paint on the left rear 1/4, I hadn't seen it til the other day under flourescent lighting. The body may have had a repair or two over the years, but it's 54 years old - and it wasn't perfect when it was new - as anyone who has had a vintage Corvette knows. Sometimes it's hard to tell a bonding strip from a repair, and I know when they appear perfect, something is probably wrong. The paint's been on long enough that any imperfections are well visible now. I'm around vintage cars and trucks a lot and often toss out the 'challenge' to people to tell me what a 'perfect' Corvette is. The chrome is fresh and bright, and looks to be all original stuff rechromed. I don't see anything there that is out of place or wrong. There is no rust anywhere and it's pretty darned clean from top to bottom - this is a driven car, so it shows and appears as such, but it's kept in heated and cooled storage. There is no sign of rust or rot anywhere, and the car has been touched, or left untouched from top to bottom. I especially like the underside of the body tub itself - it really shows the fiberglass and it's originality, and it's not been spray painted or undercoated - in fact, most of the finishes are what I would call 'natural'. This car has not been fluffed, buffed or detailed - it's exactly as it has been kept, driven and garaged by the owner. No rattle can details, or anything phoney anywhere. It's as honest a car as you will find anywhere, at any price. The trunk is not latched in the pictures, so you may notice a bigger gap than normal there, I'd left it that way to take the pictures. You are absolutely welcome to make an appointment with us and view this car during normal business hours here in McMinnville Oregon - it's currently on the showroom floor of the dealership.This is a car you can enjoy - drive it, show it, show it off, and not be frightened to do so. It drives, starts, steers, works and every operating feature on the car we can think of works. It's clean, it's sharp, it's right and it's right on the money. Title is clear and clean and in our possession. Please don't pick us or the car apart - it's very likely that you know more about Corvettes than we do - we aren't touting this as Bloomington Gold or Survivor status, it's a beautiful and fun car that's pretty right on. It may not be the car for you, but it's exactly the car that one of you out there has been searching for. We give the best description we possibly can and invite you to drive or fly in to see it in person. Nothing hidden whatsoever. It's an amazing value - and as good as money in the bank, if not better.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we will answer questions to the best of our ability.Thank you for your interest and your time.

Automakers score 8 out of top 20 most-watched ads on YouTube [w/videos]

Fri, 14 Dec 2012

Who would have ever thought there'd be a day where people are able to skip television commercials only to go to websites to watch them later? Such is the joy of a DVR and YouTube. AdWeek tabulated the 20 most-watched ads on YouTube, and found that nine were car-related including eight coming from automakers.
Volkswagen continued its Star Wars theme with two ads in the top 20, including the highest-ranking car commercial The Bark Side spot at number three with almost 18 million views, which doesn't even have a single car in it. Some of our favorites are from Chrysler with Clint Eastwood in It's Halftime in America and House Arrest with Charlie Sheen for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Chevrolet, Honda, Audi and Toyota were the other automakers in the top 20, but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least mention one of the coolest ads on the list, the Hot Wheels corkscrew jump.
Of all the car videos, only the Fiat ad wasn't played during a Super Bowl. Check out all eight videos - in order - after the jump. Nike took the top spot with its My Time is Now ad that has been seen online more than 20 million times with Pepsi's Uncle Drew posted up in the runner-up; some of the other videos include four Old Spice commercials and an ad in which Snoop Dogg is pedaling Hot Pockets.

Official USPS Muscle Cars stamps coming to a mailbox near you

Thu, 21 Feb 2013

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.

Corvette Stingray Convertible images mysteriously appear on web, so we add our own

Tue, 22 Jan 2013

It was inevitable that we'd see the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray topless at some point, but that didn't make us any less interested when a pair of supposedly leaked official images showed up on last week. We posted them on our Facebook page, but held off reporting on them here until we could get a little more information.
Those images, which feature a dark red car on a sterile black studio background, supposedly first appeared on the website of diecast model maker Maisto. A Chevrolet spokesman has been reported saying that they are "not official images released by Chevrolet PR," which isn't a denial they're the real deal, but neither is it a confirmation.
Close examination of the photos suggest they could be official shots of the Corvette Stingray Convertible, and while some have doubted their authenticity due to a lack of vents (which were seen on the C7s that debuted in Detroit last week), it could be that the images are of a base model car without the Z51 package that doesn't require the extra venting and cooling.
