    A completely stock appearing, big block Chevy powered Chevette. It even has the stock size wheels, plaid interior and look at the stock sized exhaust coming out the rear of the car. Now that is creativity.

    Holy Crapoli! That's a sleeper, for sure I wonder how his understeer is?

    A guy in my town has a Chevette (tan 4-door) AND a 2-door 82 Escort! I haven't seen either of those cars in years. I almost had a Chevette as my first car, a late 70's brown 2-door. When my Dad and I were test driving it (and I'm sure I was complaining about it the whole time) the brakes went out, and I took out the seller's mail box. I later learned that the master cylinders on those weren't very good. I knew of a couple others who needed new MC's in their Chevettes.
    Now that I think of it, the local junky-I mean, AUTO RECYCLING place has a Chevette up on a pole in their front yard.

    Re: Cadette. Don't think for a minute that GM wasn't tempted!

    I've only seen 2 Citations is the past couple of years - one is driven locally by a woman as a commuter, and actually looks in decent shape. The other was on a flatbed in Az, and as I recall, wasn't a roller.

    I know a big Studebaker owner in Minnesota who also owns a near pristine Subaru Justy. With 3 cylinders, he loved the economy of that car, even though he rarely drove it. You don't see many of those anymore.

    Funny about Yugos; I overhauled the front end on one about a year so so ago. Note this same guy also has a 1978 Chevy Nova police package as well as a few other automotive oddities.

    Well, Clark; yes you may because you're the moderator.

    Anybody else would likely get "busted" for posting an obscenity. BP

    I purchased a 1976 Chevette new with a four speed manual. Drove the wheels of of it for five years, gave it to my son to drive as the insurance guy said insuring him in his own car would be the least expensive way. At 130K it took a wallop in the rear and was undriveable so it met it's end. During that time it had oil changes and a couple of anti-freeze changes and just ran and ran. Not fast, not pretty but dependable as heck. Turn the key and drive.

    By the way, the hit crushed the rear bumper into the body about a foot, with no injuries to the occupants. Nothing but good vibs about that car.

    I used to own a used 2 door Chevette.
    Used it as a company car and got paid .25 a mile (which was great for that time)...
    I made a LOT of mileage money with that Chevette.
    A little cold in northern Illinois winters, but it was a reliable runner for me.

    I was in the local Pick-a-Part the other day and happened upon a blue Chevette. I was actually sorta surprized - not having seen one in awhile - not even in these yards! Paint and interior of this one were really nice, considering. Of course, I was equally astonished when a Maverick pulled up to the gas pump nexto to me a few weeks back.
    Locally there's a wrecking yard that has a YUGO up on a pole for their sign. In spite of that yard having been around since the FORTIES, it's gone belly up since the YUGO was put up!

    My cousin's husband had a YUGO and he had good service from it ,somehow! It was remarkable because when he sold it, while still fairly new, he got his full purchase price back. The new buyer was a recent immigrant from Eastern Europe and was absolutely thrilled to get it! We used to have a joke about why all the YUGOs came standard with electric rear window defrosters; it was so your hands wouldn't freeze to the glass as you pushed the car when it broke down in winter!(ggg)
