One of the "C" series

The Chevelle was another marketing campaign that served Chevrolet well. 

It too was souped up and there came a fad in the 70s and 80s of jacking up the rear end pointing the nose down the road, like a Beagle or Bassett searching a scent. Chevelle enthusiasts were not alone in this goofiness, a style derived from the era's dragsters.

"Looks like a stinkbug," said one scoffer. Never rode in one but you can imagine the ride was less than "boulevard-smooth."

Note the tailights set into the rear bumper, a styling motif of this much-beloved Chevy.
