Up for sale here I have a rusty original 1949 Chevrolet 3100 short bed rat rod or parts truck. I would not advise buying this truck if you are wanting to build a shiny show truck it's to far gone but all the fenders are usable if you can work the dents out and the rockers are nice. There is rust in the frame on the passenger side between the cab and bed (see pic). The running boards and tailgate have lots of holes in them as we'll. The hood looks good but I'm sure there is rust in the brace by the hinges. There is rust in the floor, kick panels, cowl, cab corners, doors, beltline and all the other spots mentioned before. The truck is very complete and missing very few parts that I'm aware of. Mainly the top of the seat, the drivers side headlight trim, the carb, the air cleaner, and the hood side emblems. All the dash parts are on it as well as all the window garnish moldings. It has its original engine (locked up) and 3 speed trans. The key is still in the ignition. The truck has a clear Ks title in my name and is titled to the engine number by the dipstick which is how these trucks were titled when new. There's no body tag on the truck. The truck rolls fine and will have tires that hold air for easy loading. The brakes don't work at all. The factory bumpers are both on the truck and I think they're pretty straight. The glass is all in the truck and the only cracked piece is the rear window. All of the glass is old and the windshield is hazy around the edges. If you are wanting to build a rat rod that looks like its been in a field for 20 years than this is the truck for you but if your wanting to build a shiny custom it's not unless you want to rob some parts off of it. This is a no reserve auction and the truck is for sale locally so the auction may end at anytime before a bid is placed. If the truck doesn't bring the starting bid it will be parted out and crushed. Full payment due within 7 days and the buyer is responsible for shipping. Call 785-220-4411 with questions or email. Thanks and good luck.

General Motors isn't the first automaker to deliver in-car Internet access, but a proposed plan announced today could make the technology more widespread than any of its competitors have offered. By the 2015 model year, most Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC products in the US and Canada will offer 4G LTE mobile broadband access. Initially, GM will just be pairing with AT&T to deliver this service, but additional carriers will be revealed in the future.

Current in-car Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, but GM says that 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G service and will allow for full Internet access, including streaming video for entertainment as well as services like real-time traffic updates and navigation driving directions. There is also no need for a paired smartphone with this new system, which should make it easier to use, and GM and AT&T will also be working together to develop new apps for customers.
Buyers can expect to start seeing 4G LTE in their cars starting next year, and GM is already planning to expand the service to other global markets as well. All of the information from GM's announcement is posted in a press release below.
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.
Wed, 06 Feb 2013 15:31:00 EST
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.
As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.
Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
