There’s not much more admirable than being in business for one hundred years. Today, Chevrolet reaches that milestone, and we tip our hats in humble respect to the legendary car brand founded in 1911 by Louis Chevrolet, a Swiss-born American race car driver of French descent.
In its first 100 years of existence, Chevy has built enduring classics, barbaric muscle cars and Herculean trucks. The brand has ingrained itself into pop culture by being featured in TV shows, movies and music. (In fact, I highly recommend assembling a playlist consisting of these songs while reading the rest of this post.)
While there’s been a few stinkers thrown into Chevy’s mix along with a bankruptcy and lots of controversy surrounding everything from its leadership to its quality, no one can deny that Chevy is primed for the future after a highly successful, and influential, past.
