It’s no exaggeration: Chevrolet is everywhere. A few other American brands are as big (Apple, Coca-Cola, Levis, Amazon, and Google come to mind), but it’s hard to think of one that has as wide a reach as Chevy does. Regardless of who you are, chances are you own or have owned a Chevy at some point. The same probably goes for your parents, grandparents, and great grandparents too. In 1975, its marketing team launched the slogan “Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet,” and a few years later, it called itself “The Heartbeat of America.” Had it been any other company, these tag lines could have come across as incredibly arrogant, maybe even offensive. But Chevy could get away with it, because by and large, they’re true. Despite its French name, the automaker is an undisputed cornerstone of American culture.

And with good reason: Chevy has arguably built more automotive icons than any other automaker. The Suburban, Corvette, tri-five Chevys, Chevelle, El Camino, Camaro; the list goes on. Even some of its biggest flops like the Corvair and Vega were so spectacular that people still remember them, for good or ill.

But when you’ve been churning out millions of cars for 106 years straight, some models tend to fall through the cracks. So we’ve gone over the brand’s illustrious history, and found 10 vehicles that just didn’t stick around. Some were pretty good, some were awful, and a few were just ahead of their time. Read on to see if you remember these 10 forgotten Chevys.
