This 2012 Torch Red C6 LT1 model Corvette coupe has been extremely well cared for and has been regularly serviced by the original dealer throughout its life. I am the second owner. The vehicle was traded in to the original dealer, I purchased the vehicle the following day with 10000 miles on the odometer. I purchased this vehicle shortly after I retired because I had been smitten with Corvette fever when they first came on the market in 1953. I was driving down the street one day and saw this car on the used car lot and thought what the heck, at least I can test drive one.. an hour later I owned it. I was a bit concerned because I had developed an intense dislike for driving any significant distance because of the boredom and general discomfort associated with long car trips.This car changed all that for us, my wife and I are always amazed at what a pleasure it is to drive. We also enjoy the waves and smiles people give us when they see the car. The discussions you can get into with other car enthusiasts are well beyond being just interesting. A couple months after purchase we decided to travel to the West coast, in preparation for the 5 to 6000 mile trip. I replaced the OEM tires at 11,000 miles with new Michelin Pilot Sport tires for improved road handling and reduced road noise (the new Michelins now have 11,300 miles on them). 80% of the accumulated miles on the car are highway cruising miles. The OEM tires are in my garage can be made available for a small cost. If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive introduction into the pleasures of driving Corvettes this may be the car for you. If you are looking for the hot rod version try the much more expensive Z0x models, they have upwards of 600hp off the factory floor. Mine has a mere 430 horsepower. Both are a hoot to drive. The original Radio/CD player has been replaced by a Pioneer AVIC 8000NEX. The AVIC 8000NEX is a full function SiriusXM/ AMFM All features of the NEX are easily reviewed by googling AVIC 8000NEX and downloading the user manual. The original manual for the NEX will be included with the car.

Chevrolet donates 300 vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders

Thu, 28 Feb 2013

Super Storm Sandy took out a lot of automobiles in its path of destruction through the Northeast last October. The number surpassed 250,000 at last count, and a few of those were owned by Chevrolet - cars either sitting on dealership lots or waiting at port to be shipped off. Rendered unsellable by the water damage inflicted by Sandy, these vehicles were facing the crusher. But Chevy didn't send them there.
Instead, Chevy had a better idea: It will be donating 300 of these vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders at Guardian Centers in Perry, GA. Chevy is the official automotive partner of Guardian Centers, which is an 830-acre facility that trains first responders in disaster preparedness. Junked cars are practically a consumable commodity there, where a full-size cityscape simulator gives trainees an entire urban center in which to train for all sorts of rescue operations and disaster scenarios.
Chevy says its particular vehicles will be used "in conjunction with role players for wide area searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualty exercises." While grim scenarios all, we're certainly glad there are people out there preparing for the unexpected. While a zombie apocalypse isn't officially on the list of potential disasters to prepare for, when the virus hits, we'll be hot-footing it to Perry, GA to hang with these guys and gals.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible is a Swiss hit

Mon, 04 Mar 2013

We've just received an early peek at the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible here at the Geneva Motor Show. General Motors was kind enough to let us attend the final dress-rehearsal for its press conference scheduled for tomorrow's opening media day, and we've come away with a good look at the droptop C7 in person.
In the metal, the new Corvette Convertible seems somehow less avant-garde than the Coupe, even in Z51 Performance Package guise. That's not necessarily a bad thing - more of an observation. That initial impression may be because the C7's new greenhouse is one of its most prominent departures from Corvettes past. While we didn't get to see the top erected, there's no rear side window in the stock images that Chevy has already released, suggesting the C7 convertible's profile will look a lot like its C6 predecessor. And with the new power tonneau cover in place, there are also no rear ducts that come as part of the Z51 package (they've been moved under the car).
As with its predecessor, the tonneau is a handsome double-bubble piece, and the body-color "waterfall" element into the cabin between the seats has made it to the new model as well. Thus, the overall look with the top down should be a bit more familiar to prior-gen C6 owners - if you're one of those put off by the C7's new shape, you'll probably appreciate the convertible bodystyle more than the coupe.

Vert-A-Pac train cars kept your Chevy Vega's price in check

Fri, 01 Mar 2013

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
