It is totally original except for noted recent work done. Truck was owned since new June '58 by a Kansas farmer. It was used on the farm and trips to town only until 1984 when they bought a new Chevy truck, it was then parked in the barn and still has the 1984 Kansas farm tags on it! We have the original title. She is a 3600 heavy duty stepside long bed. At some point the 17" split rims were replaced with 19.5" tubeless tires. The light blue paint is original, with light surface rust, and 2 rust areas behind front wheel wells. The patina is awesome. This truck also has the original interior, rubber floor mats, 235 6cyl "thrift master" engine, 4 speed transmission, spare tire, wood bed, optional wood side rail extensions, and the original owners manual in the glove box. This week: new gas tank, new brakes and master, new battery, new plugs and wires, new fuel pump, clean carb, etc. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL! ALL ORIGINAL!"
My son and I bought this truck at the farm auction in the barn where it sat 39 years. We transported it by trailer to our mechanic who specializes in old Chevys. We love this truck, but he is expecting a baby and I have too many other projects now, so she goes up for auction: Odometer shows 12,489 miles, actual could be 112,489, but this farmer did not drive except to town maybe once a week at most, a 20 mile trip.

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.

Full Disclosure: in my younger days, I loved nothing more than tormenting passengers with my behind-the-wheel hijinks. Once, after a particularly artful handbrake turn on a two-lane at around 50 miles per hour, I left one backseat occupant crying in their own lap. This isn't necessarily something to be proud of, but it gives you a glimpse into why it is that I find this ad from Pepsi so damn disappointing. The premise is beautiful. Take NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, give him a disguise and set him loose upon some unsuspecting used car dealer. Hilarity ensues.

Except that this Pepsi Max commercial is so obviously staged, it can't help but feel like some ham-fisted marketing fail. From the strategically placed aftermarket cupholder mounted mid-dash for the hidden camera to the fact that the supposed dealer Camaro is displayed as a 2009 model (Hint: Chevrolet didn't make any), this clip is about as organic as a Twinkie. Still, we would never turn down a chance to watch Gordon thrash on a rental-spec coupe - only problem is, he probably didn't even do the driving himself. Check it out below.

There once was a time when Daewoo was one of the biggest companies in South Korea. It was larger than both LG and Samsung, and second only to Hyundai. But these days the name is all but gone.
