1979 Chevrolet Chevette Review
Would Like To Have One Again In My Collection. — It was good little car to get you around in. The perfomance was ok on it, but I wouldn't take it on a long trip. The car was a blast to ride though. Cheap on gas with a small engine. A good learning car.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Great starter car
Cons: Not meant to go far

This is a car that is good on gas. It needs repairs, but besides that it'll get you to where you need to go. This car is fun to drive and is rare. Not many people drive an 80s car nowadays. Read More
