Hemmings Find: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split-Window Restomod

Built here at VMC - Check out this great article by Hotcars.com

What does all of this cost? Well, it certainly isn't cheap at $299,999, but with C2 looks and C7 performance it sounds like a good deal to me. Buckle UP!!

With the arrival, and unmitigated success, of the mid-engine 2020 C8 Corvette it looks like Chevrolet has a big winner on their hands. It's an aggressive design with blistering performance to match and with a starting below $60,000 and 0-60 mph times under three seconds, it's sure to be on the top of every gearhead's list of cars to get. But no matter how good brand new supercars have become there's something special about a classic Corvette from the legendary brand's storied past.

NY State Gives OK for Sales By Appointment

NYSADA received positive information yesterday evening from Gov. Cuomo’s Administration about new guidance allowing dealers to show vehicles and meet with customers by appointment only. This announcement comes a week after the State’s Dealers Associations sent Governor Cuomo a plan to restart on-site sales amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Showroom access is still restricted to all walk-ins and dealership staff must direct a person to call the dealership to make an appointment if they want to view a vehicle and speak with a sales representative.

Dealers are recommended to continue negotiating sales transaction by phone or electronically, but with this new guidance, customers can meet with a sales representative about purchasing a vehicle at the dealership.

If a customer shows up for an appointment to see a vehicle, the dealer must be sure to follow social distancing rules, including wearing a mask when interacting with the customer. Dealers should sanitize their vehicles before and after a customer enters one. And a dealer may never accompany a customer on a testdrive.

Health and Safety Guidelines for Employees and Customers:

• Maintain social distancing protocols. If necessary, adjust workplace hours and shift design as necessary to reduce density in the workplace.

• Require all employees and customers to wear masks if in frequent contact with others. May 7, 2020

• Implement strict cleaning and sanitation standards. Recommend hand sanitizer be made available throughout the dealership.

• Enact a continuous health screening process for individuals to enter the workplace.

Enhanced Sales Process:

• Test driving vehicles is permissible. Proper sanitization of the vehicle before and after the test drive is recommended. Dealership employees should not accompany the customer on a test drive.

• It is recommended that there be a designated employee to monitor adherence to social distancing. Manage showroom traffic to avoid high-density occurrences.

Staffing:

• With the enhanced selling process, dealers should only have essential staff necessary to facilitate sales.

Optional Recommendations:

• Signage in Customer Access Areas: Recommend dealers place health and proper hygiene reminders, along with social distancing reminders.

• Recommend vehicles only be accessed for test-drives upon request. Use of plastic steering wheel wraps and cover other commonly touched surfaces in vehicles during test drives. Dealers keep a control log of your sanitation activity/process.

• Dealers should consider scheduling “high-risk” customers for a specific day or time of day

• Enact a continuous health screening process for individuals to enter the workplace

VMC Camaro featured in Motorious Muscle Car Auction

VMC Camaro featured in Motorious Muscle Car Auction

Restored '73 Chevy Camaro Is A Split-Bumper Gem featured at the Motorious Online Muscle Car Auction. The second generation of the Chevy Camaro is often overlooked by its predecessor, but the truth is, these cars offer just as much muscle. As proof of this, check out the 1973 Chevrolet Camaro that will be a featured lot in the Motorious May Muscle Cars Only Online Auction.

This Arizona car was completely restored, and it shows in about as perfect condition that you'll find a second-gen Camaro. The body is laser straight and the Mulsanne Blue paint job with white stripes is both subtle and sporty, but there is nothing subtle about the Z/28 badges and the iconic split bumper design of the Camaro RS. As a side note, the 1973 model year was the last year for the Camaro's split-bumper design and round taillights.

Under the hood sits a 350 cubic-inch V8, which is said to be rated at 350 horsepower. The engine features headers and a custom exhaust system to provide a deep rumble, and in true muscle car fashion, this small-block V8 is matched with a four-speed manual gearbox. Inside, this transmission is topped with a cue ball shifter, and the cabin shows as well as the rest of the car with flawless upholstery and trim, and about the only thing that isn't original inside this Camaro is the aftermarket stereo system. Thanks to features like power steering, power brakes and factory air conditioning, this restored 1973 Chevrolet Camaro is ready to cruise.

Why Detailing is Important

Why Detailing is Important

Why is Detailing Important?

Detailing

Taking your car to a car wash is very important. However, it is good that you detail your car once in a while. A new car always has a clear coat on top of the paint. With time, that coat fades away due to exposure to sunlight. Without the coat, the car looks really old and undesirable.

Auto detailing has its benefits for both the vehicle and the car owner. Let us first look at the benefits to the vehicle:

Is This Restomod 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sacrilege or Saintly?

Is This Restomod 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sacrilege or Saintly?

No question about it. When it comes to mid-year collectability, an original 1967 427ci/435hp car is at the top of the pyramid.

So here’s the thing; the 427/435 cars weren’t all that rare. Sure, after nearly 50 years, however, attrition has taken its toll and there are far fewer examples left than rolled off the St. Louis production line, but 3,754 were originally built. That’s not much by, say, Mustang standards, but in the realm of Corvettes, that hardly puts them in the same rarified air as an L88.
