You’ve heard the saying “Chevy Runs Deep.” While you may chalk this up to just another slogan by a car company trying to sell cars, you know how true it is if you share our passion for the Chevrolet brand.
Michael Brown, the talented man behind Michael Brown Productions and “The Quest,” is proof that Chevy really does run deep. Growing up, his family always owned Chevrolets and now that tradition has been passed down to him, his kids and hopefully his grandkids. Check out just how much heritage the Brown family has with the brand in the Chevrolet commercial we found on Vimeo above.
Brown has been around Chevrolets for the majority of his life. As a child, Brown saw his father, who was a mechanic, wrecker driver and salvage yard operator, own several Chevrolet panel trucks as well as build many Chevy-based wreckers.
The Browns also had Chevrolets for family cars, including the ‘48 Fleetline Brown is pictured next to with his mom in the video, and the ‘56 Bel Air he’s pictured next to at age 9, which was the only brand new car Brown’s father bought when Brown was growing up.
The tradition of owning Chevys was passed on to Brown when he began to drive. Over the years he has owned more than 25 Chevrolet vehicles, including a ‘46 and a ‘52 Coupe, a ‘55 and a ‘57 Bel Air (different cars from the ‘55 and ‘57 Bel Air convertible currently in Brown’s collection), a ‘64 Super Sport, ‘66 Caprice Super Sport, an ’82 full-size wagon, a ‘78 and an ‘84 Blazer, as well as a ‘94, ‘97 and a ‘00 pickup truck.
He’s also owned 13 Corvettes ranging in model year from 1954 to 2012, including the two Corvettes that were used in Brown’s Chevrolet Super Bowl commercial submissions.
But the tradition hasn’t stopped with Brown. His brother Ken has owned several Chevys, including the three Suburbans he collectively put over 600,000 miles on. Brown’s children, Rachael Terrana and Ryan Brown also caught the Chevy bug, being taught to drive a manual in Brown’s ‘63 Corvette and owning Chevrolet’s since. Even Brown’s young grandkids have shared in the Chevrolet tradition, enjoying many of Brown’s cars and pictured next to his ‘55 in the video.
While the saying “Chevy Runs Deep” is used to advertise vehicles, it holds true for families all across the country. What’s your Chevy heritage story?
