General Motors Co. plans to bury the Chevrolet Avalanche. The automaker said the 2013 model year will be the last for the truck, which features unique styling that incorporates a mid-size truck bed and interior seating for five. It was meant to be a light-duty pickup truck that could tow, haul and still transport a family. "More than 580,000 Avalanches have been sold since its introduction in 2001, and Avalanche has won major awards and recognitions throughout its run," said Mark Clawson, Avalanche marketing manager.

Joe Dimmick assumes his Clint Eastwood squint, slides a hand through his perfectly sparse Eastwood hair and in Eastwood's flinty voice tells about the world of the celebrity look-alike. Dimmick, via his Palm Springs agency dubbed Dimmick's Doubles, is employer to more than 25 look-alikes in Southern California, with nearly a dozen coming from Orange County. The 49-year-old Eastwood double envisions more than anonymous appearances for his clients at low-rent conventions or private parties.
