Are you a classic Chevy fan? Will you be in Florida April 6-8 or comfortable bidding live on-line? Then check these three beauties out.

 

1) 1967 Corvette 427/400 horsepower convertible (Lot #717) that is one of 16 painted in Greenwood Green over black vinyl interior (Top of Page Image). This is a numbers-matching car that has had a frame-off restoration (or two). Power everything, automatic.

2) 1969 Chevrolet COPO Camaro (Lot #709) with an L72 V8 engine (425 hp) and a 4-speed manual. This Camaro has been fully restored, has a numbers-matching engine and correct date-coded drivetrain.

Most of those types of auctions only interest the more dollars than sense crowd. I only buy stuff I can actually use and I'm not trying to impress anyone.

      So, what do you think of the newly announced Blazer? Good choice for the legendary name? Bad use of badge you once loved? Let us know.

      I’m at my wits end over this 
       
      I’m not sure if it’s been discussed on here yet but I’m having a serious problem with my truck going into limp mode at random.
       
      I have a 2007 GMC Sierra, SLT, Z71 (newer body style) 
       
      It runs fine for weeks, sometimes even months. Out of nowhere it’ll go into limp mode with these dash warnings:
       
      ”engine power reduced”
      ”traction control off”
      ”service traction control”
      ”service stabilitrack”
       
      Readings are:
      P2138
      C0242
      C0899
      C0900
       
      I replaced the engine due to a cam and lifter problem about 3 yrs ago. The truck started acting up about a month after the engine was replaced. The engine is still under warranty. 
       
      -I’ve changed the gas pedal sensor.
      -I’ve changed the throttle body and throttle positioning sensor. 
      -I’ve changed the electronic control module (ECM)
      -I’ve changed the electronic brake control module (EBCM)
      -I’ve even replaced the battery cables
      -I’ve added a new ground wire, thinking I had a bad ground somewhere. 
      - I’ve checked and cleaned all connections into the throttle body, gas pedal, and all the plug ins I could see and get to. 
       
      I had a guy tell me to look at the brake booster and possibly change that. It might be leaking or something. I’m not sure if that’s accurate advice and I haven’t done anything to the brake booster. 
       
      Other than fooling with the brake booster, I’ve literally done everything I know to do except change the entire wiring harness!!! I don’t want to do that though. I love the truck and I don’t want to sell it but Im tired of putting money into it. 
       
      Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m on the verge of pushing it off of a tall cliff!
       
      help!
       
      - James

      Chevrolet's quirky looking but utilitarian compact crossover, the Trax has been a surprising hit. Fuel efficient, roomy, and available with all-wheel-drive, the Trax offers small families exactly what they want. Versatility. For the new model year, the Trax stays mostly the same. Only changes in colors and badging come this vehicle's way for 2019.

      We're entering the last model year for the current Silverado and Sierra HD platform. While the light-duty pickups get a totally new platform for 2019, the HD version will have to wait another year, until 2020, for their all new versions. 
       
      That means 2019 is a transition year for the 2500HD and 3500HD. Cab choices will be limited and one last K2XX special edition will available on the Chevrolet side. A few months ago the 2020 HD was spotted undergoing testing if you are inclined to wait.
