Chevrolet's venerable Cavalier subcompact might not conjure up images of sporty fun in most people's minds.After all, this line of cars, introduced in the 1982 model year as Chevy's new entry-level model, was designed for economy and practicality.However, en route to becoming the nation's third-best-selling automobile and Chevy's top seller, the Cavalier went somewhat upscale.The sportiest -- and most California-looking -- of the Cavaliers were the RS and Z24 convertibles. But as Chevy contemplated phasing out the Cavalier line by replacing it with the new Corsica/Beretta line that debuted in the 1989 model year, those convertibles disappeared.

DETROIT -- Gary Kovacic was putting the finishing touches on plans for the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu two years ago when his boss raised the bar. What would it take to make the car better than the competing Camry that Japan's Toyota Motor Corp. had just put on sale, General Motors Corp. Chief Executive Officer G. Richard Wagoner Jr. wanted to know. The question forced Kovacic and his engineering team to put two months into a part-by-part comparison of their car with the Camry and to propose hundreds of design upgrades.

Over the years I have always found the letters to the editor to be at times informative and at times uninformed. It's a credit to The Sun's editors that often they allow both sides of an argument to be heard, and I believe most readers appreciate this effort. Personally I've always limited myself to reading the letters and either nodding my head in agreement or shaking my head in disbelief. However, this morning I found myself rereading two or three times a letter titled "Here's to the venomous secessionists" (Nov.

An article in the Aug. 24, 1961, edition of the Herald Argus and Baltimore Countian reported on the arrival of a new, modern ambulance for the area. The new $7,000 Catonsville ambulance, a one-ton Chevrolet panel body truck chassis converted into an ambulance, is far superior to the old Cadillac which cost nearly $10,000, according to Deputy Fire Chief Lee Cockey . It is more durable, the metal is heavier, repairs will be cheaper, it will require less time in the shop and in all respects will be less worrisome, Chief Cockey said.

DOVER, Del. - -The high banks of Dover International Speedway did on Sunday what the free market has been unable to: turn General Motors into a world-beater. Over the waning laps of the Autism Speaks 400, two of NASCAR's best drivers staged a thrilling battle of wits and horsepower in their high-octane Chevrolets, reducing the rest of the field of Fords, Dodges and Toyotas to distant afterthoughts. It was dazzling stuff, with Jimmie Johnson, who clearly had the superior car and engine, frantically making up ground after a botched pit stop dropped him from first to eighth with 35 laps remaining.
