Chevrolet Launches Online Interactive Design Center
"With this site, Chevrolet makes a clear statement of what its design is all about and what is to come in the future," says Wayne Brannon, Executive Director for Chevrolet Europe. "Both informative and entertaining, it will appeal to anyone interested in design. Yet, this is only the beginning: Chevrolet is looking forward to the site expanding considerably with time to cover ever more exciting design-related topics."
In short terms, the website was especially designed to allow visitors and fans to find out how “a Chevrolet becomes a Chevrolet,” as the company mentioned in a press statement, through a modern and accessible way: a Flash-based website. In addition, the page features a calendar showing the upcoming Chevrolet events plus a list of external websites somehow related to the brand.
“The site also explains the important role design plays in making cars more "green". After all, it is not technology alone that can make vehicles more ecological: The designers can take an influence early on with such factors as their choice of material or the aerodynamics of their designs,” Chevrolet said in a press statement.
As mentioned, the website is entirely built in Flash so be sure to install this browser add-on before loading the page.

Ever since the introduction of the HHR,I have thought how great it would look as an HSB (Heritage Short Bed).This seems like a no brainer to me.For years,pick ups have led sales for all US car companies.Now they are suffering because of economic conditions and gas prices (sure to go up again).When Toyota 1st came out with the 1st small truck,it sold like hot cakes.Every one likes trucks.Just think what an affordable ($15,000.00) truck would do today.Old guys like me reliving their youth,women,young working teens,small businesses--this is a huge market potential.Don't wait for Ford (I hate Fords) to beat you to the punch(as in Mustang beating CAMARO to market,twice)Just make sure to make the back of the cab 8 to 10 inches behind the seat when it is all the way back so the seat can recline-I wanted to buy a used S-10 std cab ,but there was not enouigh room for me,and I am only 6'2".Also while I am making suggestions,why not have the std HSB stripped,no air-roll up windows-and really get the price down.No need to change the frame or springs as most would be for light hauling.Show the government you can turn things around by doing this truck.Low investment (compared to a car from scratch, economical, high volume.Gee,did I just save GM? If so,send me a free one.
