    No! These ain't no Chevys either! They are re-badged Korean tin cans!!! I think they're Kia or Deawoo or some such junk!

    Where (how) do you get a real Chevy there. it never really occured to me that you have several, but they don't sell them (apparently) through the regular dealerships.

    KIA makes the Aveo as far as I know. I forget what model it is but one KIA looks JUST like an Aveo.

    The Lacetti looks like a Civic to me.

    There are 'proper' Chevy dealers over here selling UK legal Chevys. They only produce a few for our market including Corvette, camaro, Sub and Tahoe. We get a lot of Dodge Ram trucks and Vipers here too and Furd Exploreres, lightening svt etc. We also have a few importers who bring in just about anything you want.

    Look, just because the rest of the 'back stabbing, double dealing' western world call the USA the worlds worst polluters...don't take it to heart!
    We need countries like you to make our idiotic prime minister look good.
    And besides....I love big engines, big trucks, open roads, big sky, guns, boots, american music....hey, you just carry on as you are, you won't get no complaints from me!!!:grin: :grin:

    I know some people need or want trucks for certain purposes. Use what you buy. I only meant that remark to be directed towards the people who have thing they don't need, for neccesity or for real world use. Looking cool may be a use, but it's not a good one.

    Jesus, is everyone going to argue with me from now on or what
