I'm a Cavalier fan. Here my 1993 L reg Cavalier 1.8i LS Hatch. Had this Car over 9 years [ 10 years next July ] and took it from 120,000 to nearly 199,000 and counting now!
It was growing up in the 90's with friend's who parents had MK2/3 Cavaliers, and of course John Cleland racing the MK3 in the BTCC. Which has left alot of lasting good memories before I owned my own.
This car hasn't disappointed and for me is more than the sum of it parts. I brought it at a bad time in my life for £250 and yes, I have spent in recent years a fair few quid to keep it on the road when most people would have given up. It far from a show car but It always been my daily. But this car has been there when everything else has gone to sh*t, it is everything I think Vauxhall set it out to be. A decent all rounder that can soak up the miles without fuss.
Whether it been a long weekend away with mates, a holiday. Fetching a Punto gearbox for my brother twice. Towing a broken Astra Van. Moving my Sister house including pot plants sticking out through the sunroof. Or if I just needed to get away for a few hours or for a day myself on a drive somewhere.
It does the lot without complaint.
An the amount of people who have came up to me over the years, to chat about my Cavalier and talk about when they owned one etc has really surprised me as it not a SRI, or GSI either.
I have thought that next year, I should sell it and try something else as there is other Cars I would like to own. The trouble is I'm not sure how they would stack up against the Cavalier?
