I've always been a Chevy person, going back to the two-toned white and plum BelAir my family we had in the 50s. And I still clearly remember Dinah Shore's famous jingle, See the USA in your Chevrolet.

How about you?

Chevy's 100th Birthday

We're already celebrating over in the cars thread

Also, a '57 Bel Air is faithfully reproduced in Forza 4; it looks like a lot of fun until you realize they reproduced the 2-on-the-tree transmission too. Sure is smooth though..

It's nice to see that three of her sister brands survived to see this day too.

Was playing with the "Take Photo" feature in Forza this evening; the aforementioned Bel Air:

Had to resize that a lot; a crop from the actual 8.3 megapixel render:

The same car after I got my hands on it; motor from an '02 35th Anniversary Camaro under the hood scoop, flake paint with airbrushed detail across the top fender line, Torq-Thrust wheels with gold rims, tinted windows, race coil-overs, etc. 0-60 in 4.0 secs..

In some European countries there are quite a few commercials for small Chevrolet branded cars made by Daewoo; Chevrolet Aveo, Spark, Cruze and so on. Used to be Daewoo branded here.

Very cool indeed. The need to make some kind of celebratory vette. Even though the vette is only 59 years young..

My personal favorite, the 1963 Corvette Stingray coupe, a classic from a time when US automotive design, engineering, manufacture and spirit had no equal.
