If you reside in the midwest like us, winter is here. Although it hasn’t been a particularly brutal one (yet), locals have geared up their vehicles for the worst of it.
But, we can’t imagine a better vehicle to dash through the loathed s-word (that’s “snow”) than what we’ve stumbled upon on eBay.
What you’re looking at is a 1993 Chevrolet Snowcoach track van, once used by the Yellowstone National Park for tours. The seller states the van has been retired for some time but continues to operate in great shape. The van is equipped with a 350 cubic-inch V8 engine, paired to an automatic transmission, and both the front and rear heat still works
We’re sure a buyer will scoop this unique machine up for some sort of grand repurpose. And we look forward to seeing that.

It’s a beautiful thing when a collection of parts come together to create a fine automobile. When it comes to custom builds, a lot of thought is put into how all the components will work together, especially if it’s to be used on the track. This is no different for the pro-touring 1969 Chevrolet Camaro built by Speedtech Performance.
This beautiful, red Camaro is equipped with Speedtech’s ExtReme sub-frame, which allows for 315-wide tires in the front while having the ability to turn the wheel a full 30 degrees. In the rear, Speedtech’s torque arm rear-suspension is put to use, as is a 9-inch rear differential. The Camaro also features a 14-inch Bear brake package for the front and rear. Agility is the name of the game.
A tuned LS3 V8 is the powerhouse of choice. It puts out 525 horsepower and is mated to a T56 transmission.
What’s really neat is

There are a number of coachbuilding companies in the United States that will take your standard four door sedan and transform it into the open-top cruiser you always wished it was. Not every car was meant to be turned into a convertible, but we think this 2004 Cadillac DeVille sedan found for sale on eBay wears the ragtop pretty well.
The auction has since ended with the seller’s $14,995 asking price not being met after 3 offers. The full-size sedan has relatively low mileage, having travelled just 82,000 miles, and its Pearl White exterior appears to be in near-perfect condition. The interior is less well taken of and the additional exposure to the elements from the convertible top appears to have taken a toll on the white leather.
$15,000 is too much for a DeVille DTS of this year whether it has a convertible top or not. We have our doubts

Someone scored a real rarity on eBay recently. Perusing the listing, we noticed bidding has just ended for an unused 4.5-liter Duramax diesel V8 engine. You know, the engine developed and canned as General Motors stumbled into the Great Recession and entered bankruptcy.
The engine has become somewhat of a legend now, and the world will never know how it could have, or would have, been used. Reports state it was developed for the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, but who knows what could have been with this engine.
The seller does not state where the engine came from, or where it was sourced from, but it looks legitimate. Whoever picked this up should have some fun either dissecting the engineering, or fitting it to a vehicle. Since it never made its way to production, there really isn’t a suitable vehicle ready and willing to give it

Everyone needs a trusty companion and a reliable sidekick. For your next hunting excursion, we can promise this 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 won’t make a peep when quietly waiting for the next piece of game to turn a corner… unlike some hunting partners.
Wrapped in camouflage and sporting rugged off-road accessories, this 2016 Silverado 2500 is ready for you to take it wherever the hunt calls. And it will look good doing it, too. We spotted this Silverado 2500 on eBay with a full intact warranty ready to be handed off to a new home.
It features GM’s 6.6-liter LML turbo diesel V8 engine with 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque. No, it’s not as potent as the latest 6.6-liter L5P Duramax turbo diesel V8 engine, but it will surely get the job done as it roams among the woods.
Only 12,112 miles sit on the odometer,

Every once in a while we come across a special car that holds an incalculable amount of historical and sentimental value, which then gets swept up by eager car collectors with a pension for cars that have the utmost significance. On the one hand, the sound investment should yield a return-on-investment, or at the very least avoid depreciation. On the other hand, there’s an irreplaceable sense of nostalgia and achievement when such a vehicle is in your possession.
Such is the case for this Corvette, which is Corvette Racing’s C6.R Chassis No.005, built by Pratt Miller for the 2007 season. There are just 30 hours of use on its awesome LS7.R V8 engine. In that time, this automotive weapon was wielded by decorated factory drivers Jan Magnussen (who is still with the team), Johnny O’Connell (now with Cadillac Racing) and Ron Fellows (now operating his own racing school).

It’s never easy to get your hands on a true race car, but this replica may do the trick. No, it doesn’t house the heritage a real example would, but this Corvette GTP racer for sale in Florida looks pretty darn good.
Mongoose Motorsports reportedly received the original body panel molds and used portions of a C5 Corvette to recreate the 1984-1988 racers used in the IMSA series and Le Mans.
The replica does not offer the same 3.4-liter turbocharged V6, but instead, a 383 stroker small-block V8 engine and a Porsche five-speed transaxle are present. It even has air conditioning to make things a little more daily drivable.
Rich Blue Metallic paint with Grand Sport inspired red and white trim is present, while the interior features red leather seats and dashboard, as well as a DigiDash2 programmable instrumentation unit and racing harnesses.
The Corvette GTP replica is currently for sale with a

Washington State coach Mike Leach said this week that votes in the Northwest that have created the legalization of marijuana havn’t changed the way he does business in Pullman.
He has a bigger issue with the hypocrisy of politics in general.
“We still test. If I catch ’em, I still cut ’em,” Leach said. “Your partying can’t get in the way with playing. I think marijuana does with football. The hangover guy comes back swinging the next day. A lot of times those marijuana guys, the whole energy to go whack somebody the next day isn’t quite there. I think it’s destructive for football. It’s probably helpful for some other stuff…. it’s not good for football. I haven’t had a problem with it.
“We test for it, if you’re dirty, I cut you.”
Leach gave a wide-ranging interview on Wednesday’s radio show. Podcast here.
