Chiltons guides for 5th gen?

So back when I ahd my 1979 and 1980 Z28's they had the Chilton Guide. It had everything you needed to know about the car with detailed instructions for about everything. From changing the heater core to the clutch. At least that's how I remember it being. Is there anything like that for our cars now? Something that will walk you thru step by step on projects (aside from you tube and online stuff)? Something where I can lok at a table of contents and paick something to learn about hwo the car was built (or how to take it apart and put it abck together)? I found that book to be a huge help in building my confidence and allowing me to learn to work on my car.

I looked online for a Chiltons and they don't even list Chevy for 2012 .

Here's a link to the one for the 1980: http://seo.chiltonsonline.com/Pub/DI...=Repair&b=3100

there is usually a wait period before they can make those manuals, I think its five years after the model is introduced. so expect chiltons and Haynes to start making them around 2015.

My understanding is that this is a 4 volume set, or at least it was for the 11's, I've heard some talk on the forums about these being released on PDF format but I've never seen that come to happen
