Chevrolet Chevette - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It oughta be an Isuzu engine - it was an Isuzu car. The Chevette, maligned little ratmobile that it was, would get you from A to B dry and usually faster than walking, so whatever bad that can be said against it, it had that on the plus side.

I wouldn't turn my nose up at it - if there were any still alive around here, it could probably be bought for pocket change. But all other factors being equal, I think I'd probably insist on the diesel - if I'm going to be seen in a Chevette, I'd like to have a little something to brag about, you know?


Lead or follow. Either is fine.
