 PLEASANTON, Calif., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevy wants to entice California shoppers back to dealer showrooms this fall with a slew of high-content, special California value-priced vehicles, said divisional executives today during a 1994 new product introduction for Chevrolet dealers and sales personnel.
 "Californians are savvy customers who recognize a real value," said Dave Shewalter, Chevrolet's San Francisco zone manager. "For 1994, Chevrolet is offering the California consumer unparalleled value in six California Value Selling models, in addition to three vehicles in the national Chevrolet Value Pricing and Contenting program," Shewalter said.
 Chevrolet's California-specific vehicles include the Cavalier VL Coupe at $9,995; Lumina Euro Sedan at $15,995; Lumina Minivan at $17,495; the Full-Size Chevy Pickup in both Short and Long Wheelbase at $13,795; the Astro Extended Van at $17,995, and the all-new-for-1994 Regular Cab S-Series Pickup at $11,495.
