Question One Answer:
Louis Chevrolet, was a Swiss-born race car driver and mechanic of French extraction who moved to the US in 1901. An intuitive and self-taught engineer he was recruited in 1911 by ex-GM president William Durant to start a new car company that would carry Louis’s name. Frustrated with Durant, Chevrolet quit the company in 1915. For comparison’s sake, Elon Musk has been chairman of Tesla for 11 years.

Question Four Answer
The 2009 ZR-1 first Corvette was the first Chevrolet to break the 200 mph barrier.
Question Five Answer:
The Chevrolet Series D V8 4.7 L, designed and built by Chevrolet for use in 1917 and 1918 models. It was an advanced design for its time: overhead valves, exchangeable cross-flow heads, counterbalanced crankshaft, and produced 36 hp. But it was expensive to build (which made the cars expensive to sell) and with Chevrolet now part of GM, Chevrolet was positioned as the “value brand” and was forced to rely upon its four cylinder engine until 1929.
Question Six Answer:
By today’s standards the 1953 Corvette was about as quick 0-60 as an economy car. On the other hand, it was almost two seconds faster to 60 mph than the fastest mass-produced American car of the day, the ’53 Oldsmobile Super 88.
Question Seven Answer:

Question 9 Answer:
Question 10 Answer:
The original front emblem and horn button were designed with a checkered flag crossed with an American flag. The design was changed when the lawyers discovered it’s illegal to use an American flag on a commercial product (oops). The American flag was dropped and replaced with a flag showing the Chevy Bow Tie and the French fleur-de-lis symbol, reflective of Louis Chevrolet’s heritage.
