So I guess there won't be an SS just yet. If this is true, then that kinda sucks. Hmm, where did all this talk of, "the LS2 is dead" come from anyway?

If any rumors of a Chevelle start popping up I am definitely waiting until 2011 to see what happens. I guess the TA is gonna get heads and a cam for now.

2011 Chevelle?

according to a member's local chevy dealership manager, GM has recently re-trademarked the name Chevelle, could we be looking at another classic muscle car ressurection in the coming years?

Heres the link to the original post:

I don't know about that. It's definitly a possibility. But I think that Impala, Camaro, GTO, and Vette (missing any?), is the extent of the "classic" muscle car restoration. It's not the 70's or 80's any more. The market for fast cars is there, but I don't think it's nearly as large as it once was. What with the foriegn marketers poking their noses in, and the whole fuel issue. I'm not sure we'll see a Chevelle restoration. BUT I could soooooo be wrong. In fact, I want to be wrong on this.

I have heard though, and it's not entirely off-topic, that the El Camino is coming back in 2011. Google "2011 Chevelle" and a bunch of El Camino articles pop up.

Would people go for another rebadged Holden product?


It is possible because Holden seems to have kept the traditional aspects of the El Camino…

If GM wants to bring back the El Camino, they better only plan on selling a few of them. I don't see it as practical in this day and age. Then again, I could be wrong...

BUT...I would REALLY love to see what kind of ideas GM has for a Chevelle. I mean, if GM could do it like Dodge is doing the Challenger and only make a limited production run. I'd seriously love to see what kind of new age retro design they could come up with. The old 70' Chevelle SS is just about my favorite old true musclecar. I'd love to see it back on the roads.

"Malibu = Chevelle" How come that doesn't add up in my head?
Care to go into detail?

I thought the Chevelle came first and then the Malibu was a type of Chevelle.

Talking

actually chevelle and malibu were different trim levels of the mid size chevy coupe/sedan/wagon. in 78 the malibu became it's own car, and it was more faithful in size and spirt to the original chevelles of the mid 60s .



I'm not only an Malibu fan, I'm a former Malibu owner .

Thanks McFly for adding that...then I didn't have to type my long explanation.

And for the record, that picture of the blue car above was not a Chevelle...at least not here in the US...it's a Malibu Maxx...the hatchback version of the Malibu. It may be a Chevelle in other parts of the world, but since they just re-trademarked the Chevelle name, I kind of doubt it.

Thumbs up

BB, you are mistaken. when they came out with the 78-82 malibu (mine was a 80) it was called Malibu Classic. there was no chevelle for the the 78 model year. from 64 to 77 there was only one mid size chevrolet car the base trim was malibu, the top of the line was chevelle. this is very similar to the full size chevrolets the base car was biscayne and the top end model was the impala even though they shared the same body and interior, the trim and badging was different. the malibu/chevelle was no different. toyota did the same thing in the early 80s they had a car called the celica supra and then supra became its own higher end and higher performance car.

Am I understanding correctly? You have a 68 Camaro and a Chevelle Malibu? Post up pictures, please! We'd love to see your rides! Post them up under this thread.

The price gouging will probably only last for the first year or so. I imagine it's going to be pretty gruesome here in CA.
