Chevy Classic

This week's car is the Chevrolet Classic, a piece of shit beyond compare. Granted, the particular car I was driving had 23,000 miles on it, a huge amount for a rental, but even so, this car is just bad news. It accelerates like a lathargeic snail, turns like a bus, stops with disinterest, and pays only casual interest to its keyless controller. Coming up I-294 on Monday, I started to worry that I was speeding because of the strong shuddering coming through the steering column. The kind of shuddering I normally associate with doing 90-100 miles per hour. I was doing 45 in a 65. The electrical system doesn't know when to turn off things like the radio, headlights, or running lights. Overall, the vehicle is annoying on a good day, scary on a bad.
