Taking on Tesla One Bolt at a Time

Chevy BoltGeneral Motors (GM) is moving quickly toward an all-electric future with the introduction of its new Chevrolet Bolt concept car at the recent Detroit auto show. Called a “real game changer” by the automaker, the Bolt could turn out to be a serious competitor for the current leading all-electric brands Tesla and Nissan.

The Bolt differs from Chevy’s existing gas-electric hybrid Volt and other extended range electric vehicles on the market in that it will be a battery-powered sedan with an all-electric 200-mile range. The now-familiar Volt can travel 50 miles on the battery and achieve some 400 miles when the range-extending gasoline engine kicks in to recharge the battery during long trips. In contrast, GM says the new Bolt will deliver “range anxiety-free” performance since it doesn’t require a gasoline engine or a recharge for trips up to 200 miles.

Chevy’s New Smart Lights

dash warning lights

Most anyone who has driven a car knows that when the “idiot lights” on your dashboard light up, it is never a good thing. Although the “idiot lights” are designed to inform the driver that there is a problem with the car’s mechanical or electrical systems, when one or more such warning lamps actually do light up, the lamps do not give any data on exactly what the problem is. The “idiot light” that is probably the most familiar to most divers is the dreaded “check engine” light, and anyone who has experienced that particular warning knows that the lamp does not give the driver any specific information on what system might be faulty. The “check engine” light tells you that there is a problem somewhere, but it doesn’t tell you anything more than that, and by the time the light comes on there is a good chance that some damage to the vehicle has already occurred.

GM sold just 170,000 Cadillacs in 2014, a number that was down 6.5 percent from 2013, while BMW sales were up 10 percent and Mercedes grew 6.5 percent over the same period.

OPGI Customer Car Spotlight: 1971 Chevrolet El Camino

Grn-EC-front-3-4

General Motors enthusiast and OPGI Customer Erick Sanchez of Seal Beach, California lives very near the Original Parts Group headquarters, so it makes sense he would take advantage of that proximity when it came time to restore his 1971 El Camino. In Erick’s own words he admits that “OPGI parts made it all happen!” Erick purchased so many parts at OPGI so often that he nearly became a regular fixture in the showroom during the two years it took to complete the car. In the process, Erick also befriended Jorge Lopez, OPGI Sales Associate and Technician, who began advising Erick on how to best complete the work on his prized ’71 El Camino.

Car Shows 2015

OPGI Car Show

Although January 2015 finds much of the nation still covered in freezing temps and snow, the inclement weather will soon give way to the warmer months of spring and summer and many of the classic cars that have been in hibernation over the winter will start hitting the roads again. The warmer months are also prime time for car shows around the country. In some areas the car show season will be upon us in just a few months, as the show season starts early in the warmer states and the colder climates won’t be far behind. With the show season on the horizon, now is the time to start planning to attend a car show in your area.

Some of the warmest states like Arizona and Florida will begin hosting events as early as February and March this year, and by April and May there will be shows happening in nearly every area of the country. This means right now is the time to start making plans to attend a few car shows in your area. In order to help you to better plan your 2015 calendar, we have compiled a list of our favorite annual events that we already know will be held this year. This is a partial list, and certainly it does not contain every event that will be held in 2015, but it is a good place to start. To make your research easier, we have listed the shows by states and dates. Happy hunting!

American Iron in Cuba – Myths and Realities

Chevy

The recently improved prospect of normalization of relations between the U.S. and Cuba has the potential for many different ramifications across a broad range of cultural and financial issues for both Cubans and Americans. For classic auto enthusiasts however, it is the legend of a large number of vintage American vehicles in Cuba that stirs the most interest. Unfortunately, the dream of bringing a pristine Chevy Bel Air back to the U.S. from Cuba is far more of a myth than it is a reality.
