I don’t know much about this car, but am I supposed to?
The Chevette is a car that I have never given a second thought. For that matter I don’t think I have given it a first thought. It’s a Chevette.
But the fact it is a Chevette makes this model awesome. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a model I will add to the collection, but that does not mean it isn’t pure awesome. Some complained when they learned Hot Wheels was doing a Chevette, but why? Was a Ferrari on the docket and was scratched to do a Chevette? No. Hot Wheels has hundreds of tools, can one be a Chevette? Yes.
So enjoy it, and celebrate it. Hot Wheels made a Chevette. By the way, I have typed Chevette seven (now eight times), and my Macbook has each word underlined in red. It has no idea what it is. More reason for Hot Wheels to let the world know that the Chevette is still a player. I guess.
(Find the Chevette along with the other models of Flying Customs Batch E on ebay…)

The chevette is an iconic car in South America. Maybe NOT this generation's Chevette, but the 80's Chevette was a best seller in Venezuela, and i know it sold well in Brasil.
I don't think I ever was the kind to get excited about a chevette myself, nor am I sure that I would actually buy this casting either, even though it is on steroids. At least the one from HW is not as dorky as the real one, that's for sure.
I'm sure that I'll get an example of this casting in the collection someday. It'll fit in fairly well with my Greased Gremlins and Packin' Pacers.
chevy chevette looks like a peg warmer 🙁
