Chevrolet Centennial - 100 Years
Chevrolet marks its centennial in 2011 and kicks off a year of anniversary
activities at the North American International Auto Show.
Chevrolet was founded in Detroit, in November 1911, by racer Louis
Chevrolet and General Motors founder William C. "Billy" Durant, who
developed cars that quickly earned reputations for performance, durability
and value. Those traits remain at the core of Chevrolet, which is the
world's fourth-largest automotive brand.
The electrically driven Volt leads Chevrolet into its second century and
redefines what a car means. It is the world's first mass-produced electric
vehicle with extended range, providing up to 379 miles of driving. That
means Volt provides the benefits of an electric vehicle without the range
limitations associated with other electric vehicles in the market --
expanding the boundaries of performance and efficiency. It exemplifies
Chevrolet's heritage of introducing advanced technology on value-driven
The forward-looking philosophy that nurtured Volt from concept to
production is also responsible for products such as the Equinox and Cruze,
whose value stories are validated by critical praise, third-party
recommendations and the growing numbers of customers who are new to
Chevrolet. Similarly, the Camaro and Corvette continue a
six-decade heritage of offering high-performance values, bringing advanced
technology to affordable sports cars. On the truck side, Silverado delivers
the greatest capability in the long history of Chevy trucks, with greater
capability and efficiency on the horizon. These vehicles were developed
with an eye on Chevy's past, ensuring they remain true to the brand's
commitment to bring more technology to more people.
This year, Chevrolet launches the all-new Sonic in North America. Next
year, the Spark comes to America, bringing the Chevrolet spirit to a new
and growing segment of smaller, highly efficient and fun-to-drive cars.
Chevrolet is also exploring a range of concepts and new-product segments,
building on the momentum generated by recent successful product launches to
put Chevy's in the driveways of a wider and more diverse range of
Cruze, Sonic and Spark are products of Chevrolet's growing global presence.
Indeed, the Chevy "bowtie" insignia is seen on vehicles in more than 130
countries and Chevrolet is leveraging those worldwide links to develop
products tuned for local tastes and needs, while delivering the brand's
trademark style, value and performance. Shared development procedures with
engineering and design centers around the globe also help deliver
better-performing, safer and more efficient vehicles. The Cruze, for
example, leads its segment with 10 standard air bags, and the Cruze Eco
model offers segment-best, EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 42 mpg.
The international ties that helped Cruze top its competitors in these
important areas will grow in the coming years.
Chevrolet enters its second century with great momentum. The next 100 years
will see Chevrolet help remake the automobile to complement the needs of
evolving societies and changing resources -- all with its iconic style,
performance and value.
Master Hands (1936) Chevrolet Manufacturing
Classic "capitalist realist" drama showing the manufacture of Chevrolets
from foundry to finished vehicles. Though ostensibly a tribute to the
"master hands" of the assembly line workers, it seems more of a paean to
the designers of this impressive mass production system. Filmed in Flint,
Michigan, just months before the United Auto Workers won union recognition
with their famous sitdown strikes.
Selected for the 1999 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally,
and socially significant" films.
Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."
Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The
junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over
the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given
special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed
with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be
done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore.
Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.

Durant Motors - Classic Cars From The 1920's - Car Club
Durant Motors Inc. was established in 1921 by former General Motors CEO
William "Billy" Durant following his termination by the GM board of
directors and the New York bankers that financed GM.
Durant Motors attempted to be a full-line automobile producer of cars and
fielded the Flint, Durant, and Star brands which were designed to meet
Buick, Oldsmobile, Oakland and Chevrolet price points. Billy Durant also
acquired luxury car maker Locomobile of Bridgeport, Connecticut, at its
liquidation sale in 1922; in theory Locomobile gave him a product that
would compete against Rolls Royce and Pierce-Arrow. Durant Motors had a
relationship with the Dort, Frontenac and DeVaux automobile name badges.
The Rugby line was the export name for Durant's Star Car line. However,
from 1928 to 1931 Durant marketed trucks in the US and Canadian markets
under the badge Rugby Trucks. The Princeton, a model aimed at the Packard
and Cadillac price point was planned, but never realized; also planned was
the Eagle car line but it never made it off the drafting tables.
Durant co-founded a truck-making subsidiary, Mason Truck, and also acquired
numerous ancillary companies to support Durant Motors. In 1927 the Durant
line was shut down to retool for a brand new modernised car for 1928,
re-emerging in 1928 with Durant, Locomobile and Rugby lines in place, and
dropping the Mason Truck and Flint automobile lines and top-selling Star
car in April 1928. In 1929 Locomobile went out of production.
Initially, Durant Motors enjoyed success based upon Billy Durant's track
record at General Motors where he assembled independent makes Chevrolet,
Oakland, Oldsmobile, Buick and Cadillac. However when sales failed to meet
volumes sufficient to sustain Durant Motors holdings, the firm's financial
footing began to slip. As a result, Durant Motors began losing market share
and dealers. The final models, produced under the Durant brand, rolled off
the assembly line in 1931 but continued in Canada as Durant Frontenac.
The Lansing, Michigan, Durant plant on Verlinden Avenue opened in 1920.
After the demise of Durant, it remained closed until GM purchased it in
1935. It restarted production for GM's Fisher Body division, later becoming
the Buick-Oldsmobile-Cadillac factory. It was finally combined with another
Lansing plant to become Lansing Car Assembly. That factory was closed on
May 6, 2005.
Durant's former plant in Elizabeth, New Jersey housed one of the first
supermarkets in the 1930's, then was used as a cookie bakery by Burry
Biscuits for many years. It was in use as a warehouse when it was destroyed
by fire in December 2011.
Billy Durant died nearly broke at age 85 in 1947, the same year as Henry
Ford, age 83.
