My '79 Caprice (Bought New, Been in the Family Ever Since)
One of GM's last all-new line of full-size cars, the '79 Caprice and Impala
2-doors, with their infamous "bent" window glass, were in the last year of
a body style that was introduced for the 1977 model year.
These "downsized" full-size cars were almost a foot shorter and 700 pounds
lighter than the '76's they replaced. But, trunk space and interior room
stayed the same. In one year, the 350 V8 went from being the smallest
engine you could get in a big Chevy to being the largest.
As big Chevys had been for years, they were traditional body-on-frame
construction, but they were the first cars to be partially designed and
engineered using CAD-CAM (Computer aided design-computer aided
GM's other B-body cars, the Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville, Olds 88, and
Buick LeSabre, and larger C-bodies, the Buick Electra, Olds 98 and Cadillac
DeVille/Fleetwood, also got the downsizing treatment in '77.
Almost a million-and-a-half full-size Chevy sedans, coupes and wagons were
sold in those three years, unfortunately not enough to take back the
number-one sales spot from the mid-size Olds Cutlass.
The universal complaint back then was that GM had made the Chevy full-size
cars TOO small. (In '77, they were only slightly longer than a "mid-size"
Chevy Malibu. How times change;-)
For the 1980 model year, they were mildly restyled, and that basic body
lasted 11 years, until the "pregnant whale" '91-'96 models, which, along
with the Buick Roadmaster, Olds Custom Cruiser and Cadillac Fleetwood
Brougham (all based on the same '77-vintage chassis), were the last
body-on-frame big cars GM would ever build.
This one was bought new by my mom in September of 1979 for (take your heart
medicine now) $7,500.
Thanks to an oil shortage and subsequent doubling in the price per gallon
of gas that summer, sales of full-size cars had fallen off a cliff, so she
had her pick of in-stock colors and options. If you've tried to find a
clean '77-79 Caprice or Impala 2-door, you know it's next to impossible. So
imagine visiting City Chevrolet, a Chicago dealer that was located in a
series of old multi-story warehouses, and riding the freight elevator with
the salesman to one of the enclosed upper-floor new-car storage areas.
There, parked nose-to-tail and mirror-to-mirror, were at least 40 Caprice
and Impala 2-doors, including the rare Landau models. Too bad City
routinely undercoated all its cars. (A side note: City Chevrolet supplied
the City of Chicago with its Impala and Caprice cop cars until the day GM
This one was bought at the now-vanished Circle Chevrolet at 82nd and
Racine. It has very few options: the 305 V8, A/C, a rear window defogger
and AM/FM stereo with 8-track player and rear speakers. Mom had it
Ziebarted a month after she bought it, which partially accounts for the
shape it's in now.
It replaced a green '68 Impala 4-door hardtop with 78,000 miles, a 307 V8,
Powerglide, drum brakes all around and no A/C, bought new by my dad.
In her care, this one's led a pretty sedate existence. Except for a road
trip to Washington D.C. in 1980 and a period of about six months where I
commuted in it to Argonne National Laboratory, no long drives. Pretty much
to the grocery store, to her friends' homes, and to church.
The locking wire wheel covers became necessary in 1983 after the original
wheel covers kept getting stolen.
Also that year, a Metra road crew dropped a load of track ballast on it as
she sat under a viaduct at a stoplight. Allstate (bless them) paid for all
the repairs to the body and the pitted glass and litigated with Metra for
the next seven years.
When she passed on a few years ago, I inherited it. I'm basically keeping
it the way it is. No Corvette motor. No 22's. No thumping stereo. It needs
a little body work (after 28 Chicago winters, what did you expect?), and as
soon as a little more money comes in, I've got to take care of the
windshield wiper motor and find a set of the original wheel covers.
It just got a new brake master cylinder and fuel pump (ouch!), and winter's
coming, so converting the A/C from R12 to R134 will have to wait.
But other than that, it runs like a top, and the interior's in almost
perfect shape. And on sunny days, it's great to pull off the cover, back it
out of the garage, and drive one of the last of GM's big cars. After
zipping around in my Fiero, it's like driving a Cadillac (I used to drive
my uncle's '79 Coupe de Ville, and the ride wasn't much smoother than this
As with the Fiero, master GM mechanic Dave Armstrong keeps it running
right. If you're in the Chicago area, get in touch with him at
(773)282-1444. He'll keep your car on the road or get it back on the road
if it isn't.

Chevrolet Cruze — глобальный проект General Motors,
созданный под руководством Тевана Кима,
пришёл на смену не связанных между собой
Chevrolet Cobalt и Chevrolet Lacetti. В основу автомобиля
легла новая глобальная платформа Delta II,
на которой построен Opel Astra J. Впервые
представленный в 2008 году для рынка Южной
Кореи как Daewoo Lacetti Premiere, он заменил собой
одноимённый автомобиль, продаваемый с 2003
года. Предыдущее поколение Lacetti
продавалось на рынках Азии, Европы и
Океании. GM заменил предыдущее поколение
на новый Cruze в течение 2009 года.
Австралийская версия продается под
маркой Holden Cruze со второго квартала 2009
года. Американский Chevrolet Cobalt заменён с
августа 2010 года и по прошествии года
Chevrolet Cruze твёрдо удерживает первое место
на рынке США среди компактных моделей.
В России производство налажено на заводе
GM в Шушарах (Санкт-Петербург). В продажу
на Российском рынке модель запущена
осенью 2009 года, ранее Chevrolet планировала
запустить производство Chevrolet Cruze в России
весной, но финансовый кризис внёс
коррективы в эти планы. По состоянию на
декабрь 2012 года стоимость автомобилей в
зависимости от комплектации составляет
от 599 000 до 817 000 рублей.
BMW four cylinder gasoline engine with Twin Power Turbo Technology
The significant upgrade in power and efficiency is chiefly down to the use
of BMW TwinPower turbo technology, which
combines High Precision Direct Fuel Injection, Double-Vanos variable
camshaft timing and VALVETRONIC variable valve timing along with
twin-scroll turbocharging. On the
new-generation 4-cylinder engine, this world-exclusive technology package
from BMW again provides a very efficient way to extract more power from the
engine, rather than taking the route of a much larger displacement and, in
the process, adding to the weight and therefore to fuel consumption. This
explains why the more dynamic performance and driving enjoyment does not
come at the expense of higher fuel consumption and emissions.
