What’s In a Name?

Everyone knows or at least has a good idea what their name means. For example, take our beloved editor Bob; in the Hindi language, Bob means “wise, old man with infinite Chevrolet knowledge.” Not really. But, you get the idea. Have you ever been sitting at a car show, looking out over the show field and wondered, “What the heck is a Caprice really?” Or, “Why did they name it Camaro?” We thought it would be fun to take a look at all of our brands, look through our sales literature and archives and try to come up with why Chevrolet named some models certain “things.” This is not a complete list; but, rather a few of the popular models. So, sit back and take a look at what we were able to come up with.
