"See the USA in your Chevrolet!" This early advertising slogan captures what a piece of American history the Chevy brand is. Founded in the early 20th century alongside brands like Ford, Dodge, Nash and Studebaker, Chevrolet has survived to become one of America's best-known carmakers, and to have a presence around the world.
Chevrolet, like its longtime rival Ford, makes almost every kind of vehicle, from work trucks to sports cars, economy compacts to family cars. You'll see Silverados and Sierras on ranches and at construction sites, and Camaros and Corvettes on the Pacific Coast Highway or Miami's South Beach Drive. Chevrolet cars turn up in films regularly, including Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." (Who can forget Nick Fury's Chevy Tahoe getting shot to bits in the street, or Black Widow pulling up in a sleek new Corvette Stingray to pick up Steve, aka Cap, for his new assignment?)
How much do you know about this iconic American brand? Do you know which major US company one of its co-founders was ousted from -- twice? Or which legendary race another of its co-founders competed in four times? What about which Chevy model came under attack in Ralph Nader's muckraking book, "Unsafe At Any Speed"? (Note: Chevy wasn't the only carmaker that Nader took to task).
