16 Year Sleep: 1983 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - This Camaro has been in storage for the past 16 years and is far from perfect. There’s 171k on the odometer and the body has some bumps and bruises. It’s a Z28 though. Plus, it’s fitted with the optional High Output 5.0 engine and 5-speed transmission! That may still not be enough to justify the asking price, but the seller is willing to hear offers so it might be worth a look. It’s located in Dayton, Ohio and is listed here on eBay for $4,900 or best offer.

What does a Chevy Volt do when it runs out of gas and battery charge?

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Unlike conventional hybrids and many plug-in hybrids, the first-generation Chevrolet Volt makes extensive use of both electric and gasoline power. With a fully-charged battery pack, it will drive on electric power alone until the charge is depleted, at which point the onboard gasoline engine activates. The gasoline engine serves as a generator, giving the Volt a total range on both gasoline and electric power comparable to a conventional gasoline car or hybrid.

Testing GM’s Teen Driver System: Like a Toddler Leash, But for New Drivers (with video)

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Teen Driver is a trick bit of software programming that does three things: First, it sets boundaries around some of the car’s capabilities, muting, for example, the audio system until both front occupants have clicked their seatbelts. The system also allows parents to set speed warnings, limit audio volume, and set an 85-mph top speed. Second, it automatically sets all safety features to their least forgiving settings and makes them undefeatable—the young rascals can’t turn off stability control, traction control, or automatic lighting. Third, the system issues a report card.

What Makes Chevrolet Corvettes So Affordable Compared To Other Sports Cars?

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Why are Chevrolet Corvettes so cheap? I have a simple answer: there is no difference between the Chevy Silverado and Corvette. They both use the same engine, they are both mass produced, and they both are made using similar materials. A good car to compare the Corvette C7 Grand Sport to is the Ferrari California T.
