All original 1976 Caprice 4 door hardtop.  Car has original paint, under the hood is all original and unmolested.  Interior is also original.  Only thing not original is the rims.  Car is 90% rust free.  Has one minor hole on the left lower dog leg on the rear of car, small blister on right rear door and one small blister on the lower left fender.  Car has one small dent on the hood and another small on on the drivers door.  The one in the door is hardly noticable as it is right on the transition of the door.  Paint shines very well for a 36 year old car.  It has paint peeling on the rear window filler section.  White vinyl top is in very good shape but has a few rust blisters starting to show under it.  Very minor but they are there.  Engine is the stock 350 with 350 transmission.  Has all stock parts and still has the stock exhaust system.  Runs great and shifts as it should.  Interior has two very small minor imperfections.  A small burn on the front seat and another on the rear seat.  Dash pad is perfect, door panels are perfect.  Still has the factory radio in the dash and it works.  Car has power locks(working), Cruise(working) A/C(working) and tilt wheel.  Fuel guage works as it should.  There is no rust in the floorboards or in the trunk.  Wheels are Outlaw II's and are pitted.  Tires are prob around 25%.  I have the original rims but not the hubcaps.  Car drives excellent and everything works as it should.  I would drive this car cross country with no worries. Great driver or excellent car to restore.  Hard to find one with good interior and this solid.  Car has the front bumper fillers intact but the rear outer ones are brittle and breaking.  Common problems for this model of car

GM recalling 250,000 SUVs over door electronics

Mon, 20 Aug 2012 11:00:00 EST

After a door-fire investigation that dates back to February, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has officially announced a recall today that affects around 250,000 General Motors SUVs for a faulty driver's door module. The recall applies to the Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X from the 2006 and 2007 model years, as well as the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL for vehicles sold and/or registered in the Snow Belt.
Road salt use in these midwestern and northern states can lead to corrosion of the driver's door module on these GMT360 and GMT370 vehicles, which allows water to come in contact with the circuit board. If shorted out, the vehicle's power door locks and power windows will not work, and could possibly lead to overheating and, in some circumstances, a fire. No official word on how many total vehicles caught on fire, but back in June, 28 fires had been reported to the government agency. A fix for the problem is still being worked out, but all affected vehicle owners will be notified by GM.

Vert-A-Pac train cars kept your Chevy Vega's price in check

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:46:00 EST

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Convertible offers a few more views before reveal

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 10:00:00 EST

Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.
From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.
As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.
