Those who have most to do, and are willing to work, will find the most time. Like many inventors, Louis Chevrolet, born on 25th Dec 1878, shows a challenge for any biographer. Numerous incidents have been told about Louis’ career. Louis spent his early childhood in a sleepy village of Bonfol. His family moved to Beaune in France, when he was nine years old. Louis father ran a watch store, but it was not successful. So, Louis started working at the age of 11 to support his family. He;started working in the Robin bicycle workshop. He learned the fundamentals of mechanics in this workshop.
One day he was sent to the Hotel de la Poste to repair a tricycle. There he fell in love with automobiles. He thought of migrating to America. This thought stemmed from Vanderbilt, a multimillionaire who was impressed with the work of the young mechanic, Louis. Chevrolet also went to Paris and Europe and learned the basics of internal combustion engine. His earnings paid him a trip to Canada. He worked as a chauffeur and then moved to New York after a few months. There he joined the American subsidiary of an automobile company, De Dion-Bouton.
