Detroit, Michigan (IP) - General Motors and Chevrolet have announced they will start manufacturing the 1957 Chevy and other car companies will follow in their footsteps.
Chevrolet spokesperson Elba Rivers says that the idea to bring back the popular car is a "no brainer" and wondered out loud why no one has ever thought of this before. She pointed out the the prices these classic old cars are fetching on Ebay and in other places is a sure fire indicator that there is a huge market out there for the retro car market.
The plan is so successful that all 100,000 of the cars getting ready to be built have already sold and the vehicles are fetching twice the original price sticker of $27,400.
Ford has announced it will introduce the 56 Fairlane and the Edsel, Bermuda model from 1958. Ford spokesperson Edith Nelson reports that her phones are ringing off the hook and that Ford's email capacity has been over run by customers desperate to get their hands on the retro cars.
The introduction of these vehicles into the modern automobile market will go a long way to bring back customers who had left the American market after their taste in cars began to favor Japanese and other foreign models. Edith Nelson says that this new trend will inject new life into the American auto market for years to come.
