1957 CHEVY 150 HANDYMAN WAGONThis is a 1957 Chevrolet 150 Handyman Wagon. I bought this wagon years ago to do a frame-off restoration. Just haven't had the time or surplus cash to restore it. Last year some genius decided to use my car as scaffolding, which caused these huge dents in the roof. The car is pretty complete. There is a spare front fender and stainless/trim in the cargo area.
RAREST OF THE RARE!!!
The car is not "all-original". It originally came with a 6-cylinder and 3 on the tree, but now has a 327 V8 with a Muncie 4-speed. It does run and can be moved around to get it on a trailer. It does need a battery, but I will provide a 24-series battery once it sells and make sure it runs before you receive it. It will need floor pans and spare tire area pan. According to my paint/body person, who has been doing restorations for 30+ years, the roof is repairable. There is rust on the gutter line as shown in the pictures. Most of the dents from the "workers" can probably be pushed back out. There is some damage to one of the front fenders, but as I said above, there is a replacement fender in the cargo area. Hinges are good. Most of the chrome will need re-plating.
The car comes with a Vermont Certificate of Registration. Vermont does not title cars older than 15 years, so the registration should be sufficient to transfer the car in any state.
Local pickup only. Buyer to arrange shipping. Do not bid unless you intend to buy!!!
DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN THE RAREST 1957 CHEVY!!! THERE WERE LESS OF THESE PRODUCED THAN THE CONVERTIBLES AND FAR LESS HAVE SURVIVED!!! THEY ARE VERY HARD TO FIND UNRESTORED!!!

We showed you Chevrolet's major debut yesterday, the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible, but General Motors is making a big push for Bowtie consideration in Europe, so it's also introducing the updated Captiva crossover here at the Geneva Motor Show.

While still based on the same platform as North America's fleet-only Captiva Sport (which is effectively a rebadged Saturn Vue), the Captiva is available in both five- and seven-seat iterations, and it looks far more modern. That's particularly the case with this updated model, which features revamped front- and rear ends that include restyled bumpers, grilles and LED taillamps, among other changes.
As before, the midsize Theta-platform CUV will be available in both front- and all-wheel drive, and is expected to carry a range of four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. Important US programming note: Chevrolet sources tell us that America's Captiva Sport will not receive these updates.
Chevrolet handed over the keys to 33 Hot Wheels Camaro Convertible Indianapolis 500 festival cars this week. Race directors get the luxury of driving the droptops around Indianapolis in an ongoing tradition with roots all the way back to the 1960s. The stunt is supposed to remind area residents that the Indy 500 is right around the corner. The cars are our first look at the special Camaro Hot Wheels Edition in convertible form, and they are slated to head to dealers after a one-time production run. The cars also represent the first time in history full-size Hot Wheels have been offered for sale by an automaker.

The cars will be available in both the previously seen coupe bodystyle and this convertible configuration, and will feature metallic blue paint and special wheels with the iconic redline accent. Buyers will be able to choose between the V6-powered 2LT trim and the V8-powered 2SS guise.
Hot Wheels says the original Custom Camaro toy was one of the original 16 1:64-scale diecasts, and it remains one of the company's most valuable collector items today.
We've been on the fence with NASCAR for some time now. On one hand, it's some of the closest racing anywhere in motorsports, with actual passing and door-handle-to-door-handle action as a matter of course. But on the other, it's become template racing - a personality-driven sport more about the drivers than any sort of loyalty to a particular automaker. The Car Of Tomorrow format really rammed that message home, with a racecar's identity coming down to little more than headlamp stickers slapped on the nose. That's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, but we've wondered for some time what's in it for the automakers, who pay big money to stay in a series that has had little increasingly little do with street car sales, let alone innovation.
Apparently General Motors was beginning to wonder the same thing. In a new ESPN report, Rick Hendrick, team owner of Hendrick Motorsports, suggests that GM would have seriously considered leaving NASCAR if it wasn't for the move away from the COT to the new Gen 6 racer. According to Hendrick, GM North America boss Mark Reuss spearheaded the charge away from the 2007 COT and toward a racecar with clearer automaker ties - cars like the new Chevrolet SS racer shown above.

Now, if we could just get more rear-wheel drive V8 coupes into showrooms....
