Beware of Auto Insurance Scams
Everyone loves a good deal, but when it comes to buying auto insurance, the
lowest price may end up costing you more than you bargained for. An
increasingly common scam involves the sale of "cheap" auto insurance to
unsuspecting consumers. Scam artists are drawing in unsuspecting consumers
by advertising auto insurance at rock bottom prices.
GM Arlington, TX Assembly Plant Tour Feb. 2011

► 2014 Chevrolet Corvette PRODUCTION
owling Green Assembly has produced approximately 1,000 Corvette Stingrays
for customer deliveries. Most of these vehicles are expected to be
delivered to dealers within the next few weeks. To expedite delivery,
vehicles may be shipped out of build sequence, which is a normal part of
any new vehicle launch.
The Bowling Green facility underwent a $131-million upgrade to support
production of the Corvette Stingray, including approximately $52 million
for a new body shop to manufacture the car's all-new aluminum frame
in-house for the first time.
The lightweight aluminum frame is the foundation for the most powerful
standard Corvette ever, with an SAE-certified 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460
lb-ft of torque (624 Nm) -- and 460 horsepower (343 kW) and 465
lb-ft (630 Nm) with the available performance Exhaust system. It is also the most capable
standard Corvette ever, with Z51-equipped models able to sprint from 0 to
60 in 3.8 seconds, run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph, achieve
1.03g in cornering grip and stop from 60 mph in 107 feet.
Complementing its performance capability with efficiency, the Corvette
Stingray delivers the best fuel economy of any sports car on the market --
an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. No other
car offers more than 455 horsepower and greater than
29 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the seventh generation of the sports car,
which has been built exclusively at the Bowling Green plant since June
Pricing for the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe starts at $51,995 including
destination. The Convertible is priced at $56,995 including destination.
Production of the Stingray Convertible will begin by the end of this year.

Finally! On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of
Chevrolet's hotly anticipated 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51, the most
technologically advanced production Corvette ever made. First, Carlos heads

quarter mile, 60-0 mph braking, lateral acceleration, and figure-eight.
The raw data backs up what Carlos can already feel from the driver's seat -
the 2014 Corvette goes fast, stops quick and handles corners with ease.

Buick Roadmaster & Arlington, Texas B-Body plant footage
This is just about the only non snooze fest clip from one of my "Buick
Know-How" tapes for the 1995 Buick Roadmaster. It's short but it's got some
great footage of the Arlington, Texas plant showing Roadmasters and other
GM B-Bodies on the assembly line.

Why Cut Up a C4 Corvette?
When the fourth generation Corvette was introduced in 1984, many innovative
build techniques were implemented. Early Corvette amenities were becoming
standard equipment while new options filled every available inch of dash
space. The 1984-1989 C4 dash had more modules and controllers to integrate
behind an already tight dash area. 1990-1996 Corvettes added more modules
along with airbags to the already restricted dash space.
After years of working with C4′s, it was apparent that any one without
good information would have a difficult time diagnosing electrical issues.
Repairing would also be difficult because many internal dash components can
not be seen. For example, anyone that has had the daunting task of
replacing a heater core in a C4 knows how tough the dashboard is to work
C4 body and chassis construction was another area that was new to the
automotive industry. Stranded fiberglass body panels were no longer used,
as Sheet Molded Composite (SMC) panels were implemented. The SMC panels
were similar in construction with the exception of two epoxy panels
sandwiched as a mat material. In this application, the epoxy panels and
mat are pressed under high pressure in a mold to form body panels. Chassis
and body are then integrated as uni-body construction, requiring different
repair techniques for both body and chassis. We often wondered if anyone
at GM had to replace a taillight bulb or service an antenna.
