I have up for sale a very rare, highly modified, and well taken care of GMC Typhoon. This car is a one owner with extensive ownership history.

In 2005, after 12 years of ownership, the original owner decided to fully restore this truck, and spared no expense in doing so. This project was a labor of love for the original owner and his kids.

The engine Dynoed outside the car at 492HP and 521 Foot LB's of torque for the break in on a base tune. Needless to say this truck is ridiculously fast!

The Paint is very nice, with a few minor imperfections(See pics). A few rock chips up front and right about the rear window there are a few small bubbles in the paint.

The A/C blows ice cold and everything is working the way it should. All Lights, gauges, Etc work great.

I have a file with almost every receipt from Day 1, including the original window sticker, Bill of Sale, maintenance receipts, ETC. I started adding up receipts for work done during and after the restoration, I got to around $46K and then stopped. That does not include the $1,000's of $$$'s in receipts that I have before around 2005. Whoever gets this truck is getting something very Special! Please see fresh pictures and below that are some restoration pics:

Google Earth helps sheriff's department find stolen car [w/video]

Sun, 29 Sep 2013

A stolen-vehicle case opened back in March was recently solved with the help of a property owner using Google Earth, a virtual globe and mapping service similar to Google Maps, ABC News reports. The man, who remains anonymous, found the stolen GMC Yukon while he was surveying his property in George County, Mississippi, using the map service and, judging by the top-down satellite image, thought he found a "shooting house" on his hunting grounds.
When he drove out to the suspicious structure, he realized it actually was a sport utility vehicle wedged in thick brush about 70 yards from the nearest road, so he called the police.
Law enforcement officers had arrested a female suspect in the case earlier based on eyewitness accounts, but didn't prosecute her because the stolen SUV hadn't been found. Ben Brown, a lieutenant detective with the George County Sheriff's Department, says that he ran the plates and confirmed the SUV was the stolen vehicle the department had been looking for.

2013 GMC Acadia priced from $34,875*

Wed, 12 Sep 2012

For those who are interested in the reworked 2013 GMC Acadia, we now know how much you can look forward to forking over. Base MSRP for the 2013 version of the full-size, three-row crossover has been set at $34,875 (*not including a $825 destination charge). If you are interested in the range-topping Denali trim, be prepared to pay $46,770.
The 2013 Acadia will come standard with a backup camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel, USB port and recycled visuals from the now-dead Saturn Outlook.
Upping to the Denali trim gets you a head-up display, blind spot monitoring system and GMC's new Rear Cross Traffic Alert system. According to GMC, most trims will also receive IntelliLink connectivity as standard equipment. The Acadia will also get the industry's first front-center airbag, an innovation it shares with other Lambda-based crossovers like the refreshed 2013 Buick Enclave. The idea behind the new tube-shaped airbag is that it can provide a buffer between driver and front seat passenger in the event of an impact, or better hold the driver in place if he or she is alone.

GM tinkering with Silverado, Sierra model mix amidst strong early sales

Mon, 04 Nov 2013

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life. That's a lesson that is currently being taught to General Motors, because despite a strong showing from its 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the General's pickup sales still can't best those of cross-town rival Ford.
With 59,163 trucks moved, GM fell just over 1,000 units short of toppling Ford, and one of the main reasons for that, according to GM's chief sales analyst, was due to a lack of variety in the engines and body styles available on dealer lots. "We are still over-weighted toward crew-cab V8 trucks. Our light-duty mix will moderate over time as our launch progresses," said Kurt McNeil.
Loading dealers with the popular combination of the 5.3-liter V8 and the four-door, Crew Cab body style was intentional during the truck's launch, but as supplies of leftover 2013 models, which are being sold at heavy incentives, are beginning to wane, both budget-conscious and high-dollar buyers are looking elsewhere instead of at the volume model pickups.
