How Patriotic Can it Be?

11.10.16 - Murica

When you think of being patriotic some things come to mind. The old saying that something is “As American as Apple Pie” brings the thought of old windowsills with a pie cooling before dinner for those of us old enough to remember a time that was quieter and less of an instant gratification society. Other items that carry the idea of being patriotic include the American Flag, baseball, and trucks. The National Pastime has been baseball for many years, but how can you take a truck, which is certainly an American symbol of toughness and rugged discovery and pair it with the American Flag.

Camaro Hopes and Dreams

2016 Chevy Camaro Rear

The Camaro has long been a pony car that many love to buy and makes for a great sports car that can be driven daily.  With the new 2016 model just around the corner, there are some items from the 2015 model that hopefully will have been addressed to create a much better overall driving experience.  Understandably the Camaro has never been a car that was advertised as being a comfortable ride with sport and performance as its main components, but some of the items that need to be changed for the new version have to do with the performance, others simply have to do with improving the overall driving experience in the car.

Why Should You Buy a Chevy?

2015 Chevy Silverado

Chevrolet has undergone so many changes over the years it’s hard to keep track of what has taken place. When the economic crisis hit in 2008 Chevrolet seemed to be offering products that were basically gas-guzzling models and with the huge price increase for gas the lineup was going to have issues continuing to sell.

A Brief History of Chevrolet

Chevrolet Opala

Chevrolet was founded by William C Durant and Louis Chevrolet on November 3, 1911 and in 1912, Louis Chevrolet’s Series C Six Class, which was a luxurious high-performance six cylinder model hit the streets of Detroit for $2150. In 1913, Louis Chevrolet exits the company, but gives Durant the rights to use his name and the Chevy bowtie logo appears in an ad for the first time. The first car to wear the Chevy bowtie logo was the Royal Mail Roadster in 1914, and in 1915, the Chevy model 490 debuts as a 1916 model year vehicle with a list price of $490 to match competitor Ford’s Model T. Billy Durant regains control of Chevrolet in 1916 after being forced out of the company and in 1918 the first Chevrolet truck based on the Model 490 chassis is introduced. Chevrolet also becomes a part of GM this year.

In 1924, a Chevrolet plant is opened in Copenhagen, Denmark and is the first Chevrolet plant outside the US. 1927 brings the first time that Chevrolet overtakes Ford for the first time with sales of more than 1 million vehicles. The Chevrolet six debuts in 1929 and is called a “six for the price of four” since six cylinders were offered for the price of four. 1934 introduces revolutionary engineering for a value priced car when they introduce the knee action independent suspension in the 1935 Model Master Series.

In 1942, production of trucks was geared toward the war and halted for civilians and in 1945, civilian production resumes.
