General Motors should look at its past successes in order to design the next gotta-have car.
Just imagine a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air two-door hardtop on a 2007 Malibu-sized chassis. How about that for a 50-year anniversary special?
If Chevrolet priced it in the $25,000 range and designed it so four or five adults could sit comfortably in it, this Bel Air would be a guaranteed high-demand/high-volume vehicle.
Chevrolet also could reintroduce a 1963 or 1964 Impala SS two-door hardtop replica.
For a large portion of the buying public, you don't have to reinvent the wheel or copy another manufacturer's designs.
Chevrolet has plenty of great designs that need only to be dusted off, freshened up and reintroduced.
GM needs to increase its car sales and market share. This is a partial solution. Instead of GM asking, "Why produce this car?" it would be great to hear, "Why not produce this car?"
