The Chevrolet Impalibu, er, we mean, Chevrolet SS, has often received flack for its conservative design. While beauty remains in the eye of the beholder, there’s no denying a couple of cars at Dodge turn heads more often—if you even spot an SS roaming the wild at all.
We get it. The car looks pretty boring to many. Jalopnik provided evidence of its humble design upbringings after the Chevrolet SS was tapped for a role in the film “ChiPs.” At the beginning of the film, Ponch, played by Michael Pena, works undercover with bank robbers and selects an SS for his getaway car. Neat.
At the end of a chase scene, the crew ditches the SS, and of course, they need to destroy the evidence. Suddenly, the SS becomes a previous-generation Chevrolet Malibu before the crew ignites the car and fire consumes it. Perhaps it’s a testament to the SS’ incognito looks that the production team thought the Malibu would serve as a fitting replacement?
Maybe. We’re glad no Chevrolet SS was harmed in the making of the film.
