Christchurch Chevette Gears Up To Conquer Antarctica

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. We Americans often forget that The General's Chevette was sold all over the world (as an Opel Kadett, Isuzu Gemini, or Pontiac Acadian), and the version built in New Zealand was badged as a Vauxhall Chevette. Fine car, to be sure, but the decades have not been easy on the Chevette and few survive. However, Wheels Of Satan has found this pretty straight example on the street in Christchurch and photographed it for us. Is it just me, or do those wheels look like they came from a 70s MGB? Make the jump to read Wheels Of Satan's observations.


dood, and also saw this glorified chevette DOTS in christchurch.. the question is why put the antitheft bar on it... who would steal this POS?? i reckon the real sheepskin seatcovers are worth more than the car!! nice color too
