Chevrolet’s Spark has ignited a lot of interest so far among American buyers.
Now GM India is trying to see if it can light up a similar explosion of sales for the new creation from Chevy with heavy promotion of the car in all parts of that country.
One reason for the intense interest in the Spark is its silky smooth 4-cylinder motor that delivers 38 miles to the gallon on the road, 32 MPG in the city. GM India is even offering a LPG version of the motor.

John Fitch passed away last week at the age of 95. While for Corvette fans his legacy will be linked to racing the American sports car during its infancy, he has accomplished so much more in his lifetime. Filmmaker Michael Brown, who worked with John Fitch during the filming of the documentary The Quest, has put together a video tribute featuring John in his own words.
Not many people have seen a 1963 Corvette Grand Sport in action, but the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia is offering enthusiasts just such a rare opportunity later this month.
During a weekend full of exciting activities on November 16 and 17, the Simeone Museum will take its 1963 #002 Grand Sport onto its back lot and demonstrate it for the public.
The demonstration will be the culmination of a special Corvette Racing Legends event set that weekend at the museum.
When you think about Corvettes, going muddin’ is usually not the first thing that pops into your mind.
But a couple of guys named Dan Linden and Tom Hahn are quickly putting a halt to that kind of thinking.
They’ve constructed the Mud Slinger, a 4×4 atop a gigantic set of tires and sporting the look of a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe.
We came, we saw and we survived another great week at the annual SEMA show. We’re leaving Las Vegas Friday morning to fly across the country and so we thought this would be a great time to drop our photo gallery of Corvettes on display at the show.
