My Favorite General Motors Vehicle.

What was/is your favorite Chevrolet or GM vehicle past or present?

 

My 2nd car was a 1950 Chevrolet Bel-Aire. Paid $20.00 for it. And it was as nice as could be. A real little old lady car.

 

And guess what? A bench seat with a manual column shift. Light blue and white. The options in those days was a radio and a heater. Both of those this car had.

 

My more modern GM cars that I liked the best were my Chevettes. Ordered first one new. $2,656.00 delivered.

 

My best "luxury" car was my used 1978 Pontiac Grand Prix. You guessed it. Bench seat and column shift. Darn fast car. And comfortable. Crushed velour covered seats from factory. I think I paid (used) around $3,200.00. Grand Prix was 4 years old when I purchased it. But like new.

 

And my 1990 Chevrolet 1500 truck. Used. Paid $3,800.00. Kept that one for 10 years. You guessed it. Bench seat. But floor mounted shifter as it was a manual transmission.

 

And yours?

'95 Caprice Classic wagon LT1; fast, comfortable, and surprised more than a few people on the road with that thing!

'99 Z28 6-sp/LS1; manual fun, and once I upgraded to 17" SS wheels/tires, a more than competent handling car (in some cases, better than my 'Vette).

'04 'Vette coupe LS1; auto cruiser that was very competent at higher speeds (>110 mph).

'11 Silverado CC 6.2; all that practicality with a hint of Camaro/'Vette in it, especially since I upgraded to 20" wheels/Michelin 275/55 LTX2 tires. Honestly, you didn't really think I was going to give up all things LSx when I went to a truck, did you?

1992 Chevy S10 2 Door Blazer 4.3L V6 4X4

 

My dad has been using one to plow with for 8 years now and it pushes snow like no other, keeps up with the full size trucks and can turn around in some tight spaces. Just bought 2 more from the city of virginia beach plan to plow with them for another 10 years at least. :fingersx:

My favorite is a 66 Chevelle. My sister had one when I was in High School and amazingly she would let me borrow it quite often.

These imo are the sexiest cars ever. Wanted a grand national since I was a little kid.

 

 

My Dad has a 87 Grand National that he bought new, still is mint...eventually it will be mine... :drool:

My current 2011 Sierra crew cab 4x4....I am and have always been a truck guy. I love the newer GMC trucks...GM is on top of their game with their trucks right now.

no I don't have one but want one.

 

I do have a 1975 Trans Am 455 4 speed that is a lot of fun to drive though.

Just finished restoring a 1969 Firebird for my brother.
