  • Record-setting 215-mph Bill Thomas Cheetah heads to auction

    The Shelby Cobra gets all the love, but it's Bill Thomas' Cheetah that deserves plenty of praise and adulation as well. One example is heading to auction, and it's a prime example of a rare racing machine. In fact, this is probably the cleanest unrestored example out there and just 11 original cars are said to exist. This one will cross the Guernsey's Auction Block on May 10 in New York City. Chevrolet saw the success that Carroll and Ford were having with the Cobras, so they decided to try and emulate that with the Cheetah. Bill Thomas had been tuning Chevy performance cars so GM asked if...

    Does Chevy's Small-Block V8 Have a Future? GM Thinks So

    In an age known for its electric vehicles, hybrid drivetrains, clean diesels and alternative fuels, you might not think there's a place in the world for a pushrod V8 with architecture dating back to the 1950s.

    As a replacement for the dull and unfashionable Chevrolet Aveo, GM is hoping the funky 2011 Chevrolet Sonic will appeal to a more savvy car buyer, and tempt people away from their Ford Fiestas and Honda Fits. One way of doing this is giving free invitations to the Spotify digital music service to the first 150,000 people who inquire about the car. Spotify has been a massive hit in Europe with over ten million members. Similar to Pandora, Spotify has a huge online music library from which users can create playlists, streaming via their computers and mobile devices. Chevrolet is the first U.S...

    The new 2010 Chevrolet Camaro coupe has sold well for Chevy, making a real race for sales supremacy with its archrival, the 2010 Ford Mustang.
