Chevy Special Collection

We’re launching the first of our Special Collections this month, showcasing Chevys through the ages.

We’re challenging Historypinners to add their own photos, videos and stories and are setting the challenge of trying to get at least one pin for each one of the 194 models Chevy has created over the last 100 years.

The first Chevrolet dates back to 1911, and the cars have been a big part of not-just-American life ever since.

We’ve already got some great Chevy stuff pinned, including this awesome shot of the Chevy founder himself, Louis Chevrolet, sitting in a Buick automobile during the Cobe Cup Race in Indiana,  this model outside the “Hughes cut-rate liquor and drug store”(!) in 1946 and more recently this picture of American Pickers host, Mike Wolfe, at the Woodward Dream Cruise classic auto show near Detroit.

So if you’ve got anything to add, be it an old family photo of you working on your truck, or pics of you posing on your bonnet, 70s style, do add them in.

You can see the Chevy Special Collection here.

PS Keep an eye out for the next Special Collection, due out next month, which sets out to gather content from every one of the Queen’s visits around the world over the last 60 years…
