Rotting In Style - 1981 Chevy Chevette Scooter

As always, it’s been ages since my Rotting In Style post, but for this one, a 1981ish Chevy Chevette Scooter! The cheapest of the cheap cars you could get. This time I am back in Skagway, Alaska, my favorite place ever. If you follow my other content like Torino Time, you’ll know that I got a new camera, but this was filmed years ago with my Droid Razr Maxx. WooHoo! 

Anyway, again this was the cheapest of the cheap cars. Just over five grand got you this thing back in the day. It was so cheap that the back seats were optional, the bumpers were painted instead of chrome, the chrome trim was all removed from the outside, there weren’t even any arm rests, and the emblems are stickers! This car does have a chrome/plastic strip going down the side of the car, but I think that was aftermarket or custom, because I was only able to find it on one other picture online during my research. 

I did find an ad for this car, and it is included in the video at the end of this article. As it’s going through a list of standard features, it clearly says excluding the Scooter. Poor little car. There was also some ridiculous financing available that Arkansas wasn’t happy about. 

Now, while it may have gotten decent MPGs, the 1.6L inline 4 made a whiplash inducing 65ish horsepower. Jalopnick did an article on one that found today, these cars now make around 23 horsepower. 

I don’t imagine this car would do well in Alaskan winters, but this car was originally from Arizona. Based off where this car is in this lot, and the key is in the ignition, this car is probably still a daily driver. This is Rotting In Style, not Abandoned In Style, and this car is rotting, though not as bad as others have of this year. 

There is something really good looking on this car though: the reflection of the mountains. I really love and miss Alaska.
