There really is an art to getting the look of your custom car right. Some overdo it, while others are too hesitant to make changes and people just end up calling their cars sleepers.

However, you can never ever really go wrong with a suspension lowering kit and some big rims sitting on an inch or two of rubber. Any car will look better, even one that didn’t look so hot in the first place…

Three GM Kansas City Plant Workers Rap About the Cars They Build

Read more

If you thought passion within the automotive industry was only confined to the minute manufacturers that still make their vehicles by hand, you were wrong.

Such positive feelings also seem to be present in the large-scale industrial side of the business too, where workers put their signature on hundreds of cars every day, like in the case of the three GM workers who love the cars that they make so much that they decided to write songs about them.

The Ultimate Barn Find: Chevrolet Dealership Is Unearthed Decades After It Was Locked Up

Read more

This has to be one of the most improbable barn find in years: a former Chevrolet dealership from Nebraska that had been locked for decades has been opened so that employees of an auction company could assess the inventory.

Their surprise couldn’t have been greater: among the 500 vehicles that formed Lambrecht Chevrolet’s inventory were 50 “brand new” cars, such as a 1956 Chevrolet Cameo pickup truck with only 1 mile on the odometer, a 1964 Chevrolet Impala with 4 miles, a 1978 Corvette with 4 miles, a 1960s Chevrolet Corvair with 17 miles and many more.

All these cars still have their window stickers and plastic on the seats, so there’s a good chance they will regain their brand new look once the dust is removed and a mechanical check is done (provided that rust hasn’t crept into the bodywork).

Consumer Reports Gives Praise to Chevrolet for its 2014 Impala Sedan

I'm going to say that Consumer Reports is right when it states that the previous-generation Chevrolet Impala, built between 2006 and 2013 was a very bland car (visually), and that the 2014 model is a huge improvement in the image department.

Having tested the car, the publication remarks that it is not only more interesting to look at, but also drives and rides much better. They are keen to point out that it is considerably more comfortable than its direct rival from Toyota, the Avalon sedan.
