100 Years Of Chevrolet - Which Is Your Favorite?

A century ago, Louis Chevrolet and William “Billy” Durant founded their company in Detroit, MI, and today, Chevrolet is the fourth-largest automotive brand in the world. To celebrate I thought it'd be fitting to discuss our favorite Chevy(s). I’ll get the ball rolling with a few of my own.

  • 2-Door Tahoe – Ah, my first car. With its small block V8, Flowmaster exhaust system, and sleek looks (after removing the decals and trim), my first ride was cool but subtle, fun yet safe, big but not as huge as the more popular 4-door version. It also hustled on the weekends hauling a landscaping trailer (my first job).
  • Malibu Classic – Surprised? The underrated (2-door) Malibu Classic was a muscle car hiding beneath a business coupe exterior. Its combination of hot rod heritage and (again) subtle coolness has caught my eye since I was a kid.
  • Chevy II – The Chevy II managed to embody “1960s American Muscle” without being huge and still having a useable back seat and trunk. Plus, my dad had a couple Chevy IIs when I was a kid.

No doubt nostalgia will also have a role in picking your favorite Chevys. I’m sure you have your stories and we’d like to hear them. Tell us in the comment section below.

My first car was a 1976 Chevy Monte Carlo the car was a tank but I loved it, NO it was not my favorite Chevy. My favorites are the 1963 Chevy Corvette Stingray. Or the 1967 Chevy Camaro SS. And I am excepting gifts if you want to hook me up with one.
