Chevrolet…Did You Know?

Geeze, I am really opening myself up here. But, my mind…free flowing at 4:45am this morning. Daylight savings time robbing me of deep sleep. My mind flitting about as I try to go back under before the dogs and cat commence begging.

My mind settles, for inexplicable reasons, on Coupe. A car. A coupe. Coupe? Is that French? Coupe de Ville? More French. DeSoto? That’s got to be Spanish. Chevrolet…hmm? French again? How did those names originate I wonder? The cat leaps upon my twitching toes…I am awake! I said it was free flowing.

Ok, Louis-Joseph Chevrolet was not particularly French, but Swiss is close enough.

    the french explored the “northwest” before you were the northwest.

    the line that was considered the frontier moved many times.

    somewhere i have a map on which wisconsin is ouisconsin and wichita is ouichitah.

    french missionaries, trappers and traders had the great lakes region monopolized for some time. thus all the french place names.

    the louisiana purchase by the u.s. and the westward expoitation of canada by the english ended their dominance but not their cultural influence.
