NEWQUAY, England — Chevrolet has taken the wraps off the retro Spark Woody, conjuring up such iconic precursors as the fictional woody station wagon created for the 1983 comedy National Lampoon's Vacation. The Chevrolet Spark Woody, a one-off art car, will be featured at the 2010 Paris Auto Show in October.

This is the latest in a line of "Art Sparks" created by Chevrolet Europe. Chevy said it will unveil the next one later in August at the Silverstone Circuit to coincide with the British Touring Car Championship meeting there. No details on that version were released.

Chevrolet noted that the Spark Woody uses no wood. Instead, it uses "a three-quarter vinyl body wrap," it said in a statement. Other details include an Escape Mini-Mal surfboard mounted on the roof. It was unveiled at a Cornish resort here that is known for its surfing. says: The Chevy Spark Woody hangs 10 in Cornwall, if you can picture that. Wonder if there are any Cornish Beach Boys fans. — Anita Lienert, Correspondent
