Love Chevrolet or hate them, you can’t deny that its cars have had a hold on the American consciousness. Corvette, Impala, Camaro, Chevelle, Bel Air—hell, even the Citation—have all come and gone, leaving behind indelible memories and legions of devoted fans.

Well, now Chevy is trying to pick the best of the best, and they’ve enlisted an NCAA-style bracket to help. It’s close to Chevy’s 100th anniversary, see, and Chevrolet is busy trying to think of something worth celebrating. Ok, just kidding! There’s plenty to remember from these last 100 years, including the 1957 Bel Air, the 1962 Impala, any Corvette before 1973, the 1970 Chevelle SS, the 1936 Suburban, and the 1976 Monza Towne Coupe (again, kidding). Even the Volt and new Camaro make it into the standings as potential future classics.

There are 16 cars to choose from at Chevy’s Centennial Experience, and not one of them is named “Vega.” Fans can fill in their brackets at Chevy100.com before the whole shebang ends on November 3rd, Chevy’s 100th birthday. After all, there aren’t many car companies, especially American ones, that can lay claim to a centennial celebration—even if they built the Cavalier for seemingly most of that time.

    Leave the Cavalier alone! That name sold many cars and made GM tons of money, any flaw they had it was cause GM didn’t care about the compact market. They proved it by changing that name! It was the Impala of compacts synonymous with Chevrolet in every way. Impala is there fleet queen boring as hell yet know one will change it’s name. The only difference between the two is ones a compact. Honda would never change the Civics name, Toyota would never change the Corolla’s name! I hate name changes.
    I speak for all cars!

    So many failures in recent memory.
