The company the brought us the Chevette and the Aveo? Bankrupt?

chevy_chevetteI shouldn’t be commenting, because my whole family is filled with GM workers who’s pensions, I hope, are protected from this.  Plus GM paid for my braces and I understand under certain bankruptcy terms, they might legally be able to track me down, make me pay them $3,000 and re-crooked my teeth.

But GM’s troubles reminded me of a couple recent observations. First – I live on the edge of a very Hispanic neighborhood, which has raised this question: What does it take to kill a 1987 Toyota Corolla? What the fuck did they make those things out of? And what did they start making them out of in 1990? You can find Toyota’s made between 1986-1990 and 1996-Present, but nowhere in between. Second – when’t the last time you saw a Chevrolet made between 1978 and 2004 on the street? They should’ve kept making classics.

I guess if the first Transformers didn’t spark a Chevrolet buying spree, then I don’t know if  Transformers 2 would’ve made any difference.
