NO RESERVE
Beautiful 1986 Corvette Indy Pace Car Edition (badge on console). Ermine White, Red Leather Upholstery, Automatic Transmission, full power equipment etc-- see pic of Monroney label.
Description: The 86 C4 Convertible was the beginning of the convertibles again after not being made for 10 years. Open air motoring carried a significant price increase-- $5000 premium over the Coupe and cracked the over Thirty Thousand mark for the first time. This 28 year old sports muscle car has less than 46,000 original documented miles and is adult owned by a National Corvette Restorer's Society (NCRS) member/judge. This car has been judged Blue Ribbon Top Flight 3 times-- in 2009 at the St. Louis National Convention and the last time in 2013 Hampton, VA at the NCRS National Convention. The car was driven to and from both these events from California by the owner (was awarded the Longest Drive ribbon). The car has a personally signed (2009 and 2013) distributor cover by Dave McLelland, GM Chief Engineer of the C4 series. The Award certificates are also signed by Dave-- see pics.
The car has 5000 mile 'old' BF Goodrich tires and new battery. Everything works correctly on the car EXCEPT the Cassette Tape player.
Otherwise, the Delco Bose AM/FM sound system and the automatic electric antenna works perfectly.
The interior is in excellent condition-- if the pictures seem "orangy" in color it's because of the sunshine/lighting. All carpeting is in original red bright color.
The body has never been accidented and the paint is 100% original and in excellent condition.
The vinyl top material is in good condition but has suffered a few tiny cuts due to being put up and down-- see pics.
History; Total production of 1986 models: 27794 Coupes and only 7315 Convertibles making this a fairly rare model and likely to increase in desireability and value in years to come.
Documentation: This car was delivered new in Walnut Creek, CA in December, 1986 to a Doctor who put 13,000 miles on it, then sold it to another Doctor in Sacramento, CA who sold it to me at 22,000 miles. It's an original, genuine California rust-free automobile.
The car is being sold AS IS/WHERE IS and No Warranty is expressed or implied. Your mechanic/representative is welcome to inspect the car. I will pick up the buyer at the Oakland or San Francisco airport to effect delivery.
All questions will be honestly and completely answered and I have other pictures if you want them. Or I can take pictures of anything specific if you wish.
I don't think this car has any surprises-- it runs well and is ready to drive anywhere!
NO RESERVE!

GM won't sell 2014 Chevrolet SS in Canada

Thu, 21 Feb 2013

Allow us to be the first to extend our condolences to our friends to the north. General Motors has announced the 2014 Chevrolet SS will not be available in Canada. The Globe and Mail reports the automaker has confirmed the high-performance sedan won't hit Canadian dealers, though GM hasn't offered up any reasoning as to why that is.
Buyers here in the US of A, meanwhile, can look forward to getting their hands on the 415-horspower, rear-wheel drive SS by late summer. Something tells us it won't be long after that before Canadian officials start seeing individually imported 6.2-liter V8 four-doors in their neighborhoods. Fortunately, Canadian buyers will still be able to take home the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. The C7 bowed at the Canadian International Auto Show last week, reportedly drawing sizable crowds and interest.

Chevy monitors drivers' biometrics while experiencing new Corvette Stingray

Fri, 25 Oct 2013

We tell you about what a car is like to drive every day, remarking on throttle response, steering weight and feedback, squat, dive, brake fade and a dozen or more other factors of performance. What we can't tell you, though, is what the car does to us - how its performance impacts us, physically. That's what makes this video series from Chevrolet so darn cool.
The Bow-Tie brand rented out Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, got several (very) different individuals together, strapped a bunch of sensors to their bodies to record biometric data ranging from heart rate to respiration to brain activity, and then handed them keys to the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The results are explained in a series of videos, devoted to each driver, showing how different people react to the Corvette's performance.
If, like your author, you're a nerd for medical science, this is going to be a fascinating set of videos. If not, it's still pretty cool to see how the body of someone with racing experience, like Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi, reacts to tracking a car like the Corvette Stingray compared to the owner of legendary Detroit barbecue joint, Slows BBQ. Take a look below for all six videos from the series, or hop over to the Corvette Vimeo channel for the interactive experience, where you can see all the different metrics.
