Chevrolet In Popular Culture

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet.

Bye bye, Miss American Pie, drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry.

These are two things we were reminded of when the “Chevrolet in Popular Culture” infographic was presented to us. In reviewing the infographic more, we thought that James Dean may have been killed while driving a Corvette and/or the famous car chase scene from the film “Bullitt” (starring Steve McQueen) involved a Corvette. However, further research shows that James Dean was killed while driving a Porsche, and the film scene involved a Ford Mustang GT and a Dodge Charger G/T.

Other cursory research reveals some things that are not shown in the infographic, such as the fact that a 1955 Chevy was driven by Harrison ford in the iconic “American Graffiti” film. We were also reminded that Dinah Shore sang a jingle that included the line, “See the U.S.A. in your Chevrolet”,

Perhaps most significant to any type of car is its inclusion in a James Bond film. Bond girls are famous but so too are the Bond cars. In this regard, a Chevrolet corvette was used in “A View to a Kill” and “Live and Let Die”. In the latter film, there were a great many Chevrolet cars used, and even Wikipedia took notice of this aspect. It has been reported that a Chevrolet Bel Air was the very first car driven by 007 in a Bond film (in this case, Dr. No). It seems that the last time that a Chevrolet was featured in a Bond film was that of a Chevrolet Caprice in the film “License to Kill”.
