3 Chevrolets from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
One of the best TV shows to grace our screens in recent history has arguably been Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Although the premise of the show was pretty simple—girl’s destiny is to kill vampires and save the world—the reality is full of hilarity as well as more serious themes. What more could you want from a TV show?
If your answer to that question was “cars,” allow me to introduce you to three notable Buffy-related Chevys—both from real life and from the show.
Angel’s Chevy Impala
Angel’s beat-up Chevy Impala appears in season 2, episode 21, which looks back through the vampire’s past, including the first time he saw the Slayer. Back in 1996, Angel used the Impala to stake out Buffy, even stopping outside her school in Los Angeles to catch a glimpse of her. Of course, the Impala’s windows were painted black to protect Angel from the sun’s deadly glare.
Xander’s 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air
In season 3, episode 13, Xander is trying to get over his breakup with Cordelia. In an attempt to appear “cool,” Xander shows up to school driving his uncle’s 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, telling Buffy and Willow that he is the “car guy.” Rather than treating him like the hip dude he thinks he is, the gang sends him to fetch doughnuts while they research how to stop the impending apocalypse. In doing so, he gets roped into accidentally robbing a store and making a bomb alongside a jock (who is secretly dead) from school. You know, normal Xander stuff.
Buffy-Themed Chevy Spark
At New York Comic Con in 2012, Chevrolet presented an array of Spark models painted like various heroes in an attempt to appeal to millennials with the introduction of its tiniest car. One of the Sparks was painted with the Buffy logo on the hood and pictures of the main characters along the side. Attendees were also eligible to enter a drawing to win their own Spark.
