    A Kentucky grandfather was reduced to tears on his 81st birthday last weekend when his grandson presented him with a newly restored 1957 Chevy Bel Air that had been collecting dust in a garage. Cameron Dedman wanted to surprise his grandfather and "do it right," so he said he saved money, sold his own car and worked much of last year restoring the classic.

Called the Genovation Extreme Electric (GXE), the car in prototype form hit a top speed of 209 mph during testing back in February. It also hit a standing mile record speed for electric cars of 190.4 mph.

    Vicente Fox Trump acting like 'a child, a CEO': Vicente Fox 1 Hour Ago | 01:35 Former Mexican President Vicente Fox blasted President Donald Trump on Friday, calling him a "child" and mockingly referring to him as a corporate "CEO" rather than president of the world's most powerful country. In an interview on CNBC's "Squawk Box," the outspoken Fox said Mexico won't pay for the wall Trump wants to build along the border, "not now, not ever." Fox also said he doesn't believe Trump is an American "in his soul and his beliefs." He added he does not understand the...

    General Motors has no plans to change where it produces small cars because of criticism from President-elect Donald Trump, the company’s top executive said Sunday night. CEO Mary Barra said the auto business has long lead times for where it produces vehicles, with decisions are made two to four years ahead. Last week Trump threatened on Twitter to slap a border tax on GM for importing the compact Chevrolet Cruze to the U.S. from Mexico. …

    The Iranian government has suddenly banned imports of all Chevrolet cars, trucks, and SUVs in a bid to give local automakers a much-needed boost. “Even the Americans are not interested in buying such cars because of their weight and high fuel consumption. Why should we import the cars from a bankrupt American factory? This is very odd,” said 76-year old Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader. […] The news comes only a year after Chevrolet was granted a license to sell cars in Iran following a 34-year hiatus. …

    BARSTOW, Calif. (AP) — A box van packed with fireworks exploded and burned to the ground on a Southern California freeway Thursday, clogging the main road between Los Angeles and Las Vegas at the beginning of the Fourth of July holiday weekend. The Chevrolet van caught fire shortly before 1:30 p.m. Thursday on southbound Interstate 15 near the Nevada border, briefly closing southbound lanes for nearly an hour and backing up traffic several miles into Nevada, said California Highway Patrol Officer Ryan Camara. No one was injured.

    You may want to set your smartphone's alarm for June 30, 2013 to commemorate the anniversary of the first Corvette to roll off the line in Flint, Michigan. That's quite a late introduction for a vehicle (and it explains why only 300 were built until the 1954 model year, when production moved to St. Louis) but it was the beginning of a beautiful relationship between Chevrolet and American.

    The Chevelle is one of America’s favorite classic muscle cars. If you turn on your favorite televised classic car auctions at random, chances are that there will be a Chevelle crossing the block. With so much attention, the Chevelle is pretty much an open book, yet here are some lesser-known facts:

    The Chevrolet Niva, a mini-SUV produced as a joint venture between GM and Russian automaker AvtoVAZ, is a beige little ute based on a Lada. It's an incredibly boring car in current form, but the next generation Niva concept unveiled today ahead of the Moscow auto show is a strong enough idea to make us wonder why Chevy hasn't tried something like this over here. Even if you ditch the concept-y winch up front, knobbly tires, off-road snorkel and roof rack featuring enough lights to illuminate Norilsk, the new Niva still manages to look far more aggressive than the standard...

    Manchester United, along with several English Premier League teams, unveiled its uniform for the 2014-15 season. It's your typical Man U look, with a Nike swoosh and crest on the front. There is something slightly different. Ah yes, a bit of white in the collar. That's it. Oh and a giant Chevrolet logo. That's also new.

    Long before the Chevrolet Cobalt became known for having a deadly ignition defect, it was already seen as a lemon. Owners complained about power steering failures, locks inexplicably opening and closing, doors jamming shut in the rain — even windows falling out.

  • 1967 Corvette with 2,996 miles to be offered at auction

    People generally buy a Chevrolet Corvette planning to drive the wheels off it, but examples with absurdly low mileage have to come from somewhere. Cars suffer a small breakdown and are parked for years, owners suddenly pass away and their children don't know what to do with the cars, vehicles get donated to museums... the list of usual suspects for something like this is pretty limited. But the story of this unrestored and completely original 1967 Chevrolet Corvette with just 2,996 miles on the clock is a new one for us. Here's what we know: Don McNamara turned 30 in...

    Apparently, all new Chevy ads must include at least one gay couple. And if that bothers you, you’re a homophobe bigot whose religion denied women the vote and backed slavery. And any number of Facebook Crusaders are lurking about waiting to tell you that. The new orthodoxy is on the march and if you don’t clap loud enough you will be handled like a North Korean uncle. The new test of social acceptance in America is how enthusiastically you embrace all things gay. First it was sitcoms, now it’s Chevys, and while anchors gravely wonder if coming out as gay...

    Coming just a week after Coke made waves when it aired the first Super Bowl ad to showcase a set of same-sex parents, the car-maker's new campaign is called "The New Us" and portrays a series of wide-ranging families. "And while what it means to be a family hasn't changed," intones the Chevrolet narration over clips that include nuclear families, mixed race couples, adoptive parents, gay and lesbian parents, combinations of the above, and others, "what a family looks like, has. This is the new us." The games have been criticized for taking place in Russia, which has made "gay...

    Electoral trends show America's large cities growing more and more liberal, meaning urban conservatives are becoming more and more isolated. However, there are a handful of cities out there that buck the trend and still provide friendly habitat for city-dwelling conservatives. We scoured the country for large cities with populations over 200,000 that offer a combination of conservative values, a high quality of life, and plenty of big city activities to enjoy. We looked into recent voting trends, tax rates, business-friendly grades, locals who identify as "highly religious," gun-friendly laws, conservative local politicians, and more. Then we combined them with quality...

    More than half of Texans said that the nearly $50 billion taxpayer bailout of General Motors may deter them from buying from the company, according to a survey released Tuesday. The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), a nonprofit ethics watchdog, surveyed more than 500 Texas residents and found that 40 percent said the bailout would “absolutely” affect their decision about buying one of GM’s new pick-up trucks. More than 22 percent said it would “likely” or “very likely” affect their decision, while just 24 percent answered “not too likely.” About 150 of those surveyed said that they were in...
