I have too many toys, so I have decided to sell a few of them.  This auction is for my 1995 Chevrolet K1500 4x4 Silverado.  It is a beautiful truck that needs nothing other than a new home.  It is a very reliable truck that I would drive anywhere with no concerns.

This 1995 Chevy is basically a new truck.  Everything is new. 

I have owned this truck for about 4 years.  It was painted just before I purchased it.  There was a fender bender prior to it being painted.  The driver's side cab corner and rocker were repaired.  The driver's door was also bent a bit and was replaced (easier option).  The driver's door didn't get painted on the inside (dark green)...and the rocker is still in primer.  I wasn't worried about it since I planned to use bedliner to paint the inside of the doors and the rockers on both sides.  I have not had the time to do that yet.  I do have a couple of cans of blue paint that would match that I am including in case you want to paint it blue again.  I also have a little extra paint from when the truck was painted (both colors).  The body was rust free when it was painted...and it is still rust free.  It looks nice with the medium blue paint and dark blue fender flares and Super Sport stripes on the hood.  I don't drive it in the winter.  From how clean the underside is, I would say it saw very little winter driving.  It is clean enough to eat off of...still has original paint underneath.  The body and paint still look great.  The truck is nice enough to take to shows.  It is not perfect in every way, but it is a 1995 Chevrolet and is very nice for the age.  I don't drive it off-road (too pretty).  It is a pavement pounder.  It would be a very capable off-road toy if so desired. 

The truck is all decked out.  The cowl hood is a nice steel hood.  The truck also has a sun roof.  There are tons of other extras -- Ranch Hand bumpers (front and rear), aftermarket tail lights, HID headlights, new horns, roll bar with KC Lights (never used), another pair of KC Lights on the front bumper (never used), blue windshield wipers (dual blade), vent shades, chrome diamond plate bed caps, chrome on the lower body, big whip CB antennas, chrome door handles, chrome tailgate handle, chrome fuel door cover, wiper huggies (help the windshield wipers work better), tinted windows, fender flares, rubber bed mat, etc.....way too much to list. 

It is not just pretty...everything is great mechanically, too.  There is so much to talk about...I will try to cover the basics.  The truck shows 221872 miles on the odometer.  I have driven it a little over 4000 miles since I purchased it.  During that time, everything has been gone through.  The engine was supposed to have been replaced before I purchased the truck and had low miles on it.  The 350 engine has been tuned up (belts, hoses, plugs, wires, etc.), had the timing set, and has been thoroughly checked over.  If anything needed replaced, it was replaced.  It has a new throttle body spacer (Helix Power Tower)...K&N cold air intake system...a new battery...and so on.  The truck runs great.  I never use the AC, so I am sure it needs to be recharged (if you want to use it).  The radiator is new.  The headers were just installed...with new true dual exhaust.  It sounds great with the Flowmaster Super 44 mufflers and Magnaflow tips.  The truck has 3.73 gears and has no problems at any speed whether driving it in town or on the highway.  The front differential has been replaced.  The 4-wheel-drive actuator is new.  The steering gear box is new.  The whole front end has been rebuilt (ball joints, control arm bushings, tie rod ends, etc.)...and it has been freshly aligned.  Basically everything in the front end is new.  The transfer case has been flushed and inspected.  It is in good working order.  The transmission is new (overdrive).  All u-joints in the truck are new.  The rear end has new axle shafts, bearings, seals, etc.  All brakes are new -- pads and calipers in the front, shoes in the rear, etc.  Everything has been gone through.  It is like a new truck.

The Silverado is lifted with big tires.  It is like a monster truck.  The truck has a 4" suspension lift and a 3" body lift (7 inches of lift) and new 35" Dick Cepek Crusher tires.  The tires are similar to Super Swamper Boggers but last a lot longer.  They are great tires.  The tires are mounted to nice polished aluminum wheels.  The tires make the nice hum sound going down the road.  It is like music to my ears. 

The interior is very nice for a 1995 Chevrolet truck.  The interior is blue and is very clean.  There are a couple of cigarette burns on the seats (from a previous owner - I don't smoke).  There are a couple of cracks on the dash, too.  There is minimal wear on the driver's seat.  Other than that, it is nice.  The truck has power windows and locks.  It has a Sony CD player, Sony 6.5" speakers in the doors, and a nice setup under the back seat with 2 10" Kicker subs powered by a Kicker amp.  The stereo system is basically new and sounds great.  All gauges work properly.  Everything works fine.  There are other extras, too -- pedal covers, steering wheel cover, nice floor mats in the front and back, new inside door handles (with visors and power window switch covers to match), etc.  There are many new parts...too many to mention.

This truck rides like a Cadillac going down the highway.  Even on bumpy streets in town, it still rides nice (especially for a lifted truck).  It is a nice looking truck.  It runs, drives, and sounds great.  Everyone compliments me on the truck.  I will regret selling it, but I have too many toys.

I will be happy to show you the truck if you would like to give it a personal inspection.  Also feel free to ask questions.  I may have left something out (too much information to mention on this truck).

Thanks and Happy Bidding.

Chevy might've pulled out of NASCAR if it weren't for new Gen 6 car

Wed, 20 Feb 2013 13:31:00 EST

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. Learn more about the fight for a closer-to-production look in the ESPN story at the link.
Now, if we could just get more rear-wheel drive V8 coupes into showrooms....

GM takes heat for aborted Silverado riff on 'Boston Strong' at World Series

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 13:29:00 EST

During game five of the World Series, Chevrolet was set to do a spot of marketing for the 2014 Silverado - fans at Busch Stadium in St. Louis would hold up placards that spelled out the words "Silverado Strong," a theme that Chevy has been promoting since the Silverado's launch with the song "Strong," by Will Hoge. The St. Louis promo was ultimately called off, though, over concerns that it'd be insensitive to the visiting Boston Red Sox. (You can see the image of what the stunt would have looked like above, courtesy of one timely Reddit user.)
Now, the Busch Stadium stunt might not have been a big deal, had the St. Louis Cardinals not been playing the Boston Red Sox. Following the tragic events in Boston during the marathon back in April, the phrase "Boston Strong" gained traction among the city's citizens, especially at sporting events. So, you can imagine that Chevy's appropriation of the phrase might not sit well with some fans.
The stunt was ultimately shelved after images of the signs went viral before the game, leading to a bit of a public backlash. Chevy spokesperson Michael Albano said of the promo that it was meant to show the brand's "commitment to baseball and its fans." But after the images went viral, the company "realized there was the possibility that we may offend some of the very fans we were trying to honor," Albano told Automotive News via email.

Who sold the most heavy-duty pickups in 2012? PickupTrucks.com investigates

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 08:44:00 EST

Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. PickupTrucks.com has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.
So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. PickupTrucks.com says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.
