'31 Olds :: "The vehicle is not certified to comply with any federal, state or local laws, rules or regulations and may not be driven on public roads."

Bullsh!t. There WAS no federal regulation in '31, and state regs were few & open to interpretation.

There is no law that would prevent anyone from installing a body & the minimal safety equip (lights, horn, wipers) & registering this chassis & driving it every single day. Even proclaiming such at the time of the sale cannot prevent it.

I think they were talking about, now.... that it does not meet any standards or laws of any state now, since most of these vehicles are being sold a scrap, GM is trying to cover their butts, so they cant get in trouble... any more than they are already in...

That sweet SD-455 is worth some bucks. I always liked those '80 Pace Car T/As too- cool paint scheme.

>>"I think they were talking about, now.... that it does not meet any standards or laws of any state now"<<

Cars only need to meet the standards under which they were manufactured, not the year we're in. If it was made recently to look like a '31, it'd be a different story.

Watching the coverage on Speed, I just saw a '69 Camaro convertible w/ a 350 and Powerglide 2spd auto..the Powerglide was still available in '69?

There's a '58 Impala on now, also with Powerglide.

Powerglide went into the '70s, but how far & on what, I'm not sure.

Sure the Impy didn't have the TurboGlide?

Who knows..the talking heads said it was a PowerGlide. If I see it on Saturday, I'll check the sign.

The Powerglide lingered on as a low-cost automatic transmission option primarily for six-cylinder Chevrolet Novas and four-cylinder Chevrolet Vegas until it was phased out after the 1973 model year. They were also used in the DJ-5 'Dispatcher' jeeps sold for light commercial use, and best known for their service - per wikipedia.

i was pleased to see that RA6 gto sema car got for top seller of the day, 85K i believe

Wednesday night I watched for a bit when a beautifully restored '58 Chevy Apache 31 NAPCO 4WD Standard Pickup was auctioned off. The "talking heads" repeatedly stated that GM introduced factory 4WD in 1960, then stated 'maybe it was '59', and then said that Ford was the first to offer factory 4WD in 1957. GM was the first to offer factory-installed 4WD, starting with GMC in 1956 and then adding Chevy for 1957. However, NAPCO emblems were no longer used if ordered & installed from the factory (dealers could still convert 2WD pickups using NAPCO 4WD systems, and a NAPCO emblem would be installed). These 'talking heads' aren't very knowledgable, nor entertaining when they make so many errors (the '58 Chevy pickup was just one example; I heard many other mistakes on Tuesday night too).

Ya, lots of questionable facts... I've been watching with the volume down low, just enjoying the video of the cars.

Watching the 10 hours of live coverage now.

Some very nice cars.

Are most of the GM Heritage cars going on the block tommorow?
