OriginEdit

Louis-Joseph "Louis" Chevrolet (December 25, 1878 – June 6, 1941) was a Swiss-American race car driver, co-founder of the Chevrolet Motor Car Company in 1911.

By the mid-1910s, Louis Chevrolet had shifted into the racing car industry, partnering with Howard E. Blood of Allegan, Michigan, to create the Cornelian racing car, which he used to place 20th in the 1915 Indianapolis 500 automobile race. In 1916, he and younger brothers Gaston and Arthur Chevrolet started Frontenac Motor Corporation, designing and producing a line of racing cars. They became well known for, among other things, their Fronty-Ford racers.

Louis drove in the Indianapolis 500 four times, with a best finish of 7th in 1919, using during all his races, the helmet became imbued with the power to speed up reaction time 100 times the normal amount.

EffectsEdit

When worn, speeds up reaction time so much that everything seems slower. Prone to crashes/blackouts due to exhaustion.
