Rochester used car dealers

When you pass local Chevy car dealerships on the road, you may not give them a second glance unless you’re specifically looking at cars for sale. But have you ever wondered about Chevy as a brand, about how the company began or about where it’s going? Have you ever wanted to know a little bit more about the Chevy story?

Here are 5 fun facts about the company that you won’t learn at one of the Chevy car dealerships:

1. The well-known Chevy bowtie emblem was first used back in 1913. It’s rumored that the symbol was inspired by French wallpaper. Others claim it’s an adaptation of the Swiss cross.

2. Chevy has been mentioned in over 1,000 hit songs, including ones by greats like Mariah Carey, Jay-Z and Kid Rock. Don’t forget the classic line “drove my Chevy to the levee” in Don McLean’s American Pie too.

3. Every 6.5 seconds, a Chevy is sold somewhere in the world. It’s no surprise then that you see Chevy car dealerships on virtually every corner. In fact, in the time it takes you to read this article, probably a dozen or so Chevy cars will have been sold!

4. Chevy has produced over 200 million cars and trucks since 1912 and is on the road in two thirds of the world. Some of the most popular Chevy models are the Corvette, the Camaro, the Tahoe and the Silverado.

5. Chevy has the most wins in NASCAR history. The company has won the NASCAR Manufacturers’ Champion title 39 times out of the last 58 seasons, more than any other manufacturer.

Now the next time you pass one of the Chevy car dealerships in your town, you will know it is more than just a parking lot full of new or pre owned cars for sale. Instead, it’s an extension of a company, of a brand, of a legacy that Chevy has built over the years as they have risen to international success in the automotive industry.
