Chevette Command Perform

Postby Shellysowner » 26 Aug 2006, 13:04

I was looking at insurance quotes today and when slecting my type of car, under the 24 types of chevette, I found 'Chevette Command Perform, 3 Door Manual Petrol 1256cc 1980-1980'. It's a new one on me!

New one on me too. Perhaps it was one of those crappy dealership special editions where they used to stick on a few graphics & chuck in a couple of options.
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!

It was a very early form of mobile punchcard reader, cleverly clothed in the body of a Chevette. This was then instructed to move by means of an interface between the card machine and the mechanical components of the car, hence the quite literal name 'Chevette Command Perform'.

Tonight's contestant - Dave Henderson. Specialist subject - the bleeding obvious.

I spotted the insuance websites with that listed Ralph. They all quoted me a fortune. I'm thinking those sites have a central vehicle resource which has somehow got into it's head that this special edition exists.

Really - oh well not in this case, everyone seems to like Carole Nash or Footman James but 2 years in a row Lancaster have been the cheapest for me.
