1957 Chevrolet 2 Dr. Hardtop Custom Rod
I am proud to list this 57 Bel Air custom rod. It is a wonderful driving and well equipped ride. It was built with nice components and thought out and assembled very well. This 57 Bel Air has power steering, power brakes(disc front - drum rear) air conditioning, and an automatic transmission with overdrive. It was built for comfortable and dependable driving with long trips in mind. At 70 mph the tach reads 2,200 rpm and has great passing acceleration. The engine has less than 2,000 miles on it. The car was built about 5 years according to the previous owner who installed this almost new engine. The floors, inner rockers, body braces, and trunk pan are all solid and there is no under coat on the under carriage. The body is solid and nice, bright work is nice and the bumpers appear to have been replated recently. All of the lights, horn, instruments, wipers, stereo, and windows work. This Bel Air was born in built in Atlanta and was born a V-8 car, VC vin #.
This cool ride has an almost 350 cid Chevy engine with a Edlebrock 4bbl. carb, K&N air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, ceramic coated headers, billet valve covers, billet pulleys, chrome alternator, aluminum radiator with over flow tank, flex flan and electric fan, power steering, power brakes with disc on front, 200R4 transmission with overdrive and the stock drive shaft, new front shocks & rear air shocks, Vintage air conditioning and heater set up, electric wiper motor, 21/2" exhaust with flow master type mufflers, exhaust is all welded (no clamps), 17" American Racing Hopster polished aluminum wheels (matching spare wheel in the trunk) new Riken Raptor tires (245/45 ZR17 on front) (255/50 ZR17 on rear) LED tail lamps, and much more. To much $$ to count. Buy one already built and ready to go and not have to wait a year or two to build one. Spring is just around the corner.
The interior is very nice. It is styled like the original, it is vinyl with cloth inserts. It has 4 sets of seat belts for safety. The dash and gauges are all original and has a modern 3 gauge set mounted under the dash and a tachometer mounted on the steering column. It has a custom audio radio, am-fm, cassette and mp3 compatible deck in the dash that fits like the original with no modifying, It has 2- 6x9 clarion speakers mounted under the rear package tray. It has a nice custom steering wheel that fits the looks of the car well, medium tinted glass, 4 Chevrolet rubber floor mats, The air and heat work very well for driving year round.

The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.
Thu, 07 Mar 2013 20:01:00 EST
Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.
Not including the women and men who built it, the 2014 Chevrolet SS has only been seen in person by a piddling number of people - fewer humans than would fill the gymnasium at a high school volleyball game. Not including the men and women who built it, no one has driven it. Even so, it is already saddled with two controversies: the way it looks and the way it shifts.

First to that shifting. Did we love the last Americanized Holden, the awesomely sportsome Pontiac G8 GXP, and its six-speed manual? Of course. Do we wish the SS came with a six-speed manual? Of course. But we'd like a toboggan to come with a manual transmission. We'd put a manual transmission on a weasel if we could because we're just wired that way; if it moves, it should come with a stick and a clutch. Or at least the option.
Let's climb down off the ledge, though. We haven't driven the SS and we have no idea how good (or not) the automatic is. And the Hobson's Choice in transmissions when it comes to sport sedans like the BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and Jaguar XFR-S and, oh yeah, cars-that-really-should-have-manuals like the Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R and Porsche 918 and every single Lamborghini and Ferrari, for instance, hasn't stopped us from enjoying what is clearly the gruesome, dual-clutched demise of Western automotive civilization. Because in spite of our ululations at the dying of the six-speed light, we understand.
Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.
The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.
