It isn’t often that I’m at a loss for words…but here I am. Stunned into complete and total silence. The car we have today has me completely flummoxed. Bamboozled. I feel like I’ve just gone 3 rounds with Mike Tyson after drinking absinth. But I’m still alive and just a little bit intrigued. Could I […]
I’m not sure where to begin with this next car, because there is a boat load of stuff to unpack. First, this is a Vauxhall Chevette, which means it left a factory in Bedfordshire, Cheshire, or Quito…UK, UK, and Ecuador respectively. However, if you think that this was just a European built Chevette, you would […]
This next car has a shockingly optimistic asking price for a Chevette that wasn’t owned by Elvis — but it might have enough added value with its custom built engine…oh..wait, its got a 4.3 V6? Yikes. Not sure I’d drop this much coin on a V6 powered Chevette, but it is still an interesting build. Find this 1984 Chevrolet Chevette offered for $23,000 in Batavia, OH via craigslist.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll say it again — I love off-brand examples of mainstream vehicles. Take this next thing. If you tell people that you own a Chevrolet Chevette, most people will assume you were born really poor and/or dropped on your head as a kid. But if you say you’ve got a Pontiac T1000, folks will ask additional questions such as; a what? Or; like the Terminator? Anyway, if you want a conversation starter, don’t get a Chevette, get a Pontiac T1000. Find this 1982 Pontiac T1000 offered for $4,500 in Dallas, TX via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
Chevy’s Chevette was a lightweight pipsqueak with two-digit horsepower and a big chip on its shoulder due to all the abuse it got in Jr High school. Chevette owners will say “just wait till the bad ones are gone and the good ones will be worth a fortune” but I’m not holding my breath on […]
Let’s say someone gives you $1000. What do you do with it? Do you squirrel it away in your piggy back for a rainy day or the inevitable health costs of a retired octogenarian? Scratch that…anybody who drives the cars recommended on this website isn’t gonna save his cash or survive through their 80s (if […]
The Chevette never had a chance. It was born with a face that even a mother couldn’t love and a body that was destined to be crushed like a legless roach on a sunny doorstep. Uggg, put that thing out of its misery before it gets in the house…except this squishy mutant has a secret. […]
If you wanted to buy a new ‘vette in 1983, you could. It wasn’t the kind built in Bowling Green, KY, though. It was an anemic econobox. With a little tweaking, however, you could make one of them keep up with traffic. Find this ’83 Chevette for sale in Birmingham, AL for $3,800 via craigslist. In […]
Chevy’s Chevette was a lightweight pipsqueak with two-digit horsepower and a freightliner’s worth of negative connotations. It was embraced by the drag strip crowd, who found that it only took a small-block V8 to redeem an otherwise disposable economy trinket. Originally listed in January, this thing keeps getting closer to fiscal sensibility. Find this 1976 […]
Looking at this car renders your brain to a full story arc of emotions. It’s simultaneously an underdog and an overstatement. It’s trolling inception. Imagine seeing this pull up next to you at the drag strip, wincing as the driver begins to rev it, only to hear the piteous clatter of a 1.4-liter Chevette plant. […]
