In-Motion Outtake / CC Jukebox: 1970 Chevrolet Bel Air – I’m Your Vehicle, Baby

1970 Chevrolet Bel Air CC, 2

Never mind that our featured car isn’t a “black sedan”.  In my mind, it completely fits the vibe of the 1970 #2 Billboard hit, “Vehicle” from Chicago-based band The Ides Of March.  This chariot was big, brash, and in-your-face just like this song’s horn section, even if it was “just” a Bel Air.

This chartreuse Chevy gave me a MeTV moment, reminding me of a scene from the opening credits of a 70’s TV show.  It looked like the kind of car that a Jack Klugman character would drive.  The streets were amazingly clear for the end of December.  I wonder where this Bel Air was headed.
