Up for auction is my 1952 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery panel van which I initially put a lot of work into. It started life as a 6 cyl. which threw a rod and ended up in a closed down wrecking yard in town. I salvaged it and added a 283 small block with double hump heads, cam, clear distrib. cap, etc. It did have a 4 barrel double pumper and intake but it started acting up and I switched it over to a 2 barrel carb and intake I already had. I tried to keep it running and started off and on through the years till a couple of years ago. I have also kept it in primer the best I could to keep it from becoming too overly rusted. It has a Saginaw 4 Speed , shortened driveshaft and 1972 Chevelle 10 bolt rear-end, Gratiot Auto Supply front motor mount kit, Electric frame mounted fuel pump, Chevrolet Truck tandem master cylinder for the clutch and brake system, a Ron Francis wiring harness was installed with a smaller custom foam grip steering wheel. One guage panel was missing when I acquired it. The rear bumper is off the car but included ( they are both rusty). I installed real hardwood flooring in the rear, sanded and stained. Started putting panel board around the inside and top of the van to have something to attach carpet to. This panel van originally had a window cut into the passenger rear side ( to see out better??) when I bought it, so I tack welded in a piece of flat metal from a 1957 Chevy hood and fiber-glassed over it. It looked good till a couple years ago when the weather started working on it. The fenders and body are mainly in very good shape, the hood has a strip tacked to it down the nose that warped the hood in a couple spots. The grille is rusted over now-see pictures. I have all the side chrome pieces I took off this car when I started working on it back in 1976. The glass would need to be replaced as some windows have chips cracks, etc. The rear door glass is good though. I have the original keys to the doors and the ignition. The passenger door is stuck now for some reason as I couldn't get it to open last time I tried. The fenders and body are solid but the metal would have to be sanded really smooth to make it look nice again. The front floor boards are rusted out and would have to be replaced. As you can see in the pictures I have been using it for storage for parts of my other car projects. (sorry it takes away from the picture of the actual car) The front bushings and king pins were replaced the first year or two I had it as was the gas tank taken out, cleaned and internally coated for rust prevention. The motor has sat a few years without being cranked but last Summer I could turn the crank manually, but the oil on the dipstick is getting milky looking from condensation getting in it. (I've had the motor covered up with plastic in case the hood let water through at the center seam). This is one reason I need to sell it before it ruins as I am losing my storage space and would rather see someone else get some use out of it as I've only got to drive it one time since I did all the work on it. I got sidetracked on it due to getting married, kids and a divorce as well as having too many other projects going at the same time. It would make a nice cruiser, custom, Rat Rod , El Camino?? or Gasser with a Straight Axle under the front end and I'd like to know someone actually would get to finish this car and enjoy it as it should be! I have a clear title to this car and the Winning bidder is to pay a deposit through Paypal and to pay the remaining amount with CASH ONLY when picking up the vehicle. This auction is for serious bidders only and must realize they are Responsible for picking up and hauling off the vehicle within a reasonable amount of time as I am losing my storage space for it. Also --The rear brakes may be locked up or rusted to the drums as we had trouble in the past trying to park it in the spot it is in now- had to drag it. The aluminum mag wheels are in okay shape but most of the tires are flat and may not air up. It uses 5 lug chevy 14" or 15" rims. Since I've described this car to the best of my knowledge and knowing the amount of work in getting it restored, I am selling it AS-IS.

While most of the world is still coming down from all the hype surrounding the debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, we're already looking to the future. And according to Autoweek, the next chapter in the C7 story will unfold at the Geneva Motor Show in March. That's right, General Motors is reportedly using the Swiss stage as its venue to debut the Corvette Stingray convertible.

If this strikes you as odd, you aren't alone. After all, with a car that's such an American icon, we'd fully expect Chevrolet to unveil it here on our shores in either Chicago or New York. But according to Autoweek, GM is looking to boost export sales of its halo car, and since the C7 was engineered to compete with the world's best and brightest, showing it off in Geneva is somewhat of a smart move. What's more, those with sharp memories will recall that GM used the Geneva expo to debut the sixth-generation C6 Corvette convertible back in March 2004, so there's also a precedent.
Details surrounding the Corvette Stingray convertible are still slim, though we fully expect the 6.2-liter V8 and choice of either six-speed automatic or seven-speed manual transmissions to carry over unchanged. Prototypes spotted on the road showed the car fitted with a cloth convertible roof, as well.
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.

According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
Chevy's goal at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week seems to be to show as much of its Performance and Accessories catalog as possible. That's why it brought three different Camaros - two with V8s and one powered by a V6 - with all of the best goodies from the catalog already fitted.
We gave a more in-depth recap of the Performance Camaro V8 Concept, the Performance Camaro V6 Concept and the Performance Garage Concept already, but we figured you'd like a short recap for each. It should be noted, though, that you can order all of the items you see here for your own Camaro, so be sure to take a long, hard look at our live galleries, just in case you're in the market for some mods.
Essentially, the Performance Garage Concept and the Performance V8 Concept are the same car - the only difference is that the later features a whole host of aesthetic tweaks in addition to its aftermarket, shorty exhaust headers and 2.75-inch exhaust. (The Performance Garage Concept has been usefully placed on its side; the better to see the new parts added to the vehicle.) The Performance V6 Concept is notable because, despite being a V6, there's no shortage of performance goodies fitted. All three of the Performance Camaros benefit from items from the Camaro ZL1, which can also be ordered through the catalog.
