Car Spotting: The forgotten Chevy

A BMW beater

During the summer months, I work part-time at Ironwood Golf Course, a short drive from where I live. The area is a haven for cool cars like this Chevy SS, produced from 2014-2017. While this might look like just another four-door sedan, it will beat a ton of cars while doing it with less cash.

A wolf in sheep’s clothing

GM had to do little in the way of development for this car because it was a rebadged Holden Commodore. GM owned Holden at the time but later pulled out of the Australian market ceasing operations just last year. Too bad because Holden turned out some really badass cars.

A fast family sedan

This family sedan was only offered with a 6.2-liter V8 engine putting out 415 horsepower. It can with a six-speed manual or automatic and could do 0-60 in under 5 seconds. Inside It had ample seating for five and came standard with leather seats that were embroidered and luxuriously stitched all for just $45,000. Should have sold GM’s projected 12,000-15,000 units a year but this is GM you’re talking about. They only sold around 3,000. Why? Never advertised the car. You can still buy one today but don’t expect any deals. Now they are in demand and expect to pay close to what they retailed at.

More spots to come.
