Never saw a diesel Chevette but Ive heard of them. Lots of vehicles back then were made as diesels in small numbers.

Gasser Chevettes, my grandma used to have one, her and her kids drove it all over Michigan. She had one of those "Sexy Grandma" front license plates. Then after that she got another Chevette, and transferred the plate of course. My uncle had his own Chevette and said it was surprisingly good in the snow, he lives at the top of a big hill. My friends sister had a T1000. The lady next door to my other grandma had 2 or 3 Chevettes. Quite a few others I know had one too. Seems like around here they were as popular as the Escort back then.
