HHRamino Makes Chevy HHR Seem Palatable

Illustration for article titled HHRamino Makes Chevy HHR Seem Palatable

In any form other than the Chevy HHR SS, the too-retro, too-small station wagon "High Heritage Roofline" leaves a strange aftertaste. It borrows liberally from Chevrolet design themes of the fifties, and yet pays no respect to what made them timeless classics. It's a car with a stolen identity. And yet, somehow, when you lop the back end of it off, put a stainless steel bed and a tail gate in there, it looks damn good. Senor htrodblder found this shining example of caminoization at the HHR Club, and we are happy to pass on the coolness on to you — especially since it reminds us of the '51 Chevy 3100 we have back home, awaiting restoration and a fresh 350.

LandofMinos: ...sent down to strike the unroadworthy!

When I first saw a picture of the Chevy HHR (try saying HHR 10 times after a few gins), straight away I knew that this is obviously GM's answer to the PT Cruiser.

Without even seeing the stats, I knew that it would be just a cynical attempt at gaining sales by throwing a fancy body over an existing 4cyl/V6, front drive platform. A sexy body without a soul.

I was right! But unfortunately my clairvoyance went unnoticed and I didn't get the job with the travelling freak show. They cited that my predictions were irrelevant and that I was too ugly and scary looking...

...for a freak show!
