Whatz a " Chevelle "

Went to the Goodyear Store today to have new tires installed on the wifes (Subaru) Forester. While paying the bill, I asked if they may have new F or G-70 X 14 polyglass tire? The (young ) gentleman asked, What year and what kind of car.
I said a 70 Chevelle, He said,,,,, Whatz a " Chevelle "? I said , No big deal, I will look for a tire later.
It was the " Deer in the headlight look " and the words, " Whats a Chevelle ". The guy that sings the song about " Almost Heaven West Virginia." Would say............ " Far Out ". RIP. J. D.

Re: Whatz a " Chevelle "

I took my 70 Chevelle SS to a local Chevrolet dealer to have the vin checked for title and registration. The salesman that checked the vin was doing the paper work when another salesman asked what year my Monte Carlo was. I told him it was a 1969. Salesman doing my paper work just smiled.

Who can be surprised by this the Chevelle is a car that has not been produced in 45 years. If you asked me if I had tires for a dusseldorf i would look at you strange as well

Re: Whatz a " Chevelle "

I'm shocked the conversation got past the F or G-70x14 polyglass tire...

Re: Whatz a " Chevelle "

I continue to buy Malibu's, as my latest is a 2018. The salesman, who was in his late 20's ask me why the Malibu, and not the new Camaro, told him a 72 Malibu 400 was my first car I owned. He asked if I had any photos of that car, and I told him I stilled owned it today, my 72, and showed him some photos on my phone. He said " Cool Chevelle, but where is the Malibu?"

Re: Whatz a " Chevelle "

Well, I guess Mustang, OK (suburb on west side of Okla City) is a car town. It seems everyone knows what all the old cars are. Even when I show up in the 51 Chevy, they don't ask me WHAT kind of car it is, they ask me what YEAR it is.

Re: Whatz a " Chevelle "

First Chevelle I ever bought was a 1969 SS 396 car. My dad looked at it and said what the h**l is that thing, it a Chevelle I told him. Might as well bought a Impala instead of buying that piece of junk he muttered walking away. Ah you gotta love old people sometimes, OH WAIT, that me now. LOL

See you could of spent a lot less for a Monte Carlo, and most would not be able to tell the difference!

Re: Whatz a " Chevelle "

I've been at the gas pumps and had some one tell me "nice Chevette", I've had it called an Impala, and I had a guy with one tooth (walking, with his grocery cart) tell me it was nice, until I told him it has a small block and then he told me it wasn't ****. I'll keep on driving it anyway............

You'd get the same looks if you went in to look for spark plugs for a Pegasso.
