I remember when GM announced they were introducing a new model called Chevette. I hadn't seen any pics of it and imagined it was a performance oriented Chevelle with Corvette styling/performance. I was SHOCKED to see this abortion when it came out... Chevrolet shot themselves in BOTH feet with that POS.

You have to remember that if you wanted the HIGH PERFORMANCE Chevette, you had to get the diesel! That had a zero to sixty time of almost infinity. (no-one knows how it long it took to do zero to sixty as the people doing the timing all died of boredom! )

The Fiat Dart - well -

Lets be real here. Darts are NOT Dodges. FIAT bought the rights to the name. They are re-badged Fiats. Pure & simple. Anyone who thinks that any of the so-called "Mopars" of today are American cars is delusional.

It is still a disgrace to hang a Dart badge on that car ,almost as bad as putting a Bowtie on a Vega or Chevette .

I only hope someone does Not come out with a Cuda that would just be too much.

I had a later Vega too with the cast block. I got it really cheap after a guys girlfriend threw his bowling ball over the apartment balcony thru the windshield... replaced the windshield, beat on it for a few months and sold it for 4 times what I had into it...
