Chevy Volt: The Future of Driving

2011 Volt
Motor Trend Article

Soon, buyers of the Chevrolet Volt will not only take home the most technologically advanced vehicle ever produced by Chevrolet, they’ll take home bragging rights too. That’s because the 2011 Chevrolet Volt has earned the prestigious title of the 2011 Motor Trend Car of the Year.® The Volt beat the competition after a rigorous and intense process applied by the selection committee at Motor Trend.

Chevrolet is proud of this recognition, but Chevrolet never set out to win awards. They set out to build an electric car that fits people’s lives in the real world of driving with the help of our range-extending gasoline generator. 

Chevrolet is committed to bringing more technology to more people and building safe cars, giving owners an excellent driving experience through great design and practical engineering — without sacrificing style.

Corvette Stingray Concept Cars: Rogers Auto Group

History of the Corvette Stingray

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and Rogers Auto Group
 

The Corvette Stingray was a privately funded concept car that formed a basis for the second (C2) generation Corvette Sting Ray. The Stingray racer-concept car was designed by Bill Mitchell, GM Vice President of styling, and Larry Shinoda in 1957. The basis of the Stingray was the 1957 Corvette SS, an engineering test mule chassis for the creation of an official Chevrolet race effort culminating with the 24 Hours of LeMans. Soon after its race debut, the Automobile Manufacturers Association (AMA) banned manufacturer-sponsored racing, and the SS had been relegated to test track duty. The Stingray exists today with a 327 cubic inch (5.4 L), fuel-injected V-8 of 375 hp (280 kW)

One of the best ways to restore your credit is an auto loan. There are more and more loan companies that have new programs to help finance people with bad credit. An auto loan is acquired easier than a personal loan or an unsecured loan because the lender can use the car as collateral against the loan, in case the borrower ever defaults or doesn’t make the loan payments. 

Can I finance a car if my credit score is below 500? Some sub-prime lenders will accept credit scores below 500. These new bank programs look more at the person looking for the loan as opposed solely to a credit score. Things like job and residence stability will play a factor in gaining an approval.

Can I finance a car if I had a Repossession? Although a car repossession can damage your credit score. Finance companies have programs tailored for your situation. Finance companies understand that non-payment is not always your fault. They understand issues like job loss, mechanical failures and non-payment from an insurance loss.
