UPDATE: Our sources at Chevy have updated their estimate of the cost of the eight-speed automatic from $1,800 to $1,725. We've changed the text to reflect the new number.

    A few years back, I was catching up with my childhood friend Adam, who told me he had stumbled upon his late father's tow truck in the used-car listings. When I asked him if he'd buy it, he shrugged, "What for?" Maybe if it was a Corvette instead of a tow truck, he'd have felt differently. One Scott Bachman of southern Michigan did.
