The Chevy bowtie in the Opel circle looks interesting, and there's even a blue bowtie in there.

Amazing Mexico is so close yet when it comes to what Chevy has they are so far.

Damn it I'd take a last gen. Astra in a heartbeat. They're awsome. Drove one as a rental in Slovakia for a month in 2001. The 5-speed was awsome wiht a light clutch, 1.6 liter did fine even up steep mountain roads with three passangers and a bumch of suitcases and thre interior made a 2001 Cavalier look like a 1974 Pinto in comparison. Why can't we get the Astra? :angry:

What's that SUV? There is a bowtie and the word "chevy" spelled on the back.

It's not an SUV, it's a subcompact (think Aveo hatchback). And, its name is the Chevrolet Chevy (hence the Chevy on the back).

No, no.... all Chevolet vehicles have "Chevy" badging on the back... I was in Toombstone once and saw a little Geo Metro meets ElCamino vehicle wiht a "CHEVY" emblem on the tailgate. It was kind of cute in a bizzare way. nothing shows up on google

It was a low end Astra. The Astra Elegance looks better but there wasn't one in the lot.

The car that's called simply "Chevy" in Mexico is the O/V Corsa with a different name. What irks me about all the Opelvrolets (sold from Mexico to Brazil to South Africa) is the ridiculous bowtie in a circle logo that kinda invokes the Opel bolt in a circle. You could easily make a morphong graphic that changes the two. It's as if the lines of both planes are parallel. But I can say that about Vauxhall's griffin and Holden's lion as well... Really, why not just free the bowtie from the circle and use a gold or blue bowtie like the 100% Chevys do? Not to mention, why do they go with Opels in some markets and Daewoos in others when thre are 100% Chevys in the same segments of a lot of those cars? Seems like it's best to kill the overlap. Keeping the older Opels alive is also kinda corny to me.
