52. Chevettes?

Last edited Fri Jul 26, 2019, 08:27 PM - Edit history (1)

I remember when the Chevette was introduced. My dad worked for a division of GM, and he told me the company's internal memo said Chevette engineering had been a top priority -- GM needed a product to compete with imports and the Chevette was their answer. Good grief -- are you telling us GM couldn't get it right even when they tried?

We seriously looked at it as a second car, but settled on a 77 Buick Regal instead. 350 V8 -- a work horse. I drove it across country a few years later.
