After representing Americana for the past 100 years, Chevrolet is focused on continuing to make a big impact on the automobile industry in the next century.

Few brands can claim to top the iconic Chevy line, even with the well-documented problems its cars and parent company, General Motors, have had in recent years.

James Bell, Head of Consumer Affairs for General Motors, told WNWO Today that founder Louis Chevrolet would be proud of all the company has accomplished since he built the first Series C Classic Six in Detroit back in 1911.

Catch the full interview with Bell and hear more about Chevrolet's planned centennial celebrations Friday morning on WNWO Today.
