    b4ndit reacted to Burnside in 1993 L reg Vauxhall Cavalier 1.8i LS. Mot'd May 2020. West Mids. Congrats to M'coli!.   
    Well after almost 11 years it time to part ways with my Cavalier as recent changes mean I'm needing a estate car now. 
    It's in tidy condition for it age and years but is no show car, though saying that I get plenty of nice comments off people about it which is nice!  Will be really sad to see it go as it's been a fantastic car to me and has always been a dependable friend. Holidays, house moves, days out, road trips buying tat or being on family taxi duty. It does it all without fuss. 
    I have folders full of various receipts and bills for work carried out over the years and have got various spares mainly used that I can include if wanted.  I also have a compete spare 1.8 engine with 74,000 miles available too. 
    Mileage is 204,000 but I did replace the engine with a secondhand unit about a year after first buying it with similar miles due to a oil pressure fault.  Though I've seen these Cavaliers with over  250,000+ miles and I have no issues with driving this car anywhere as these are hardy things. 
    I've always serviced the car each year and always use a quality 15w40 oil.   In recent years it had all new shocks/ front springs and top mounts. Front Brakes and had various other parts replaced as needed to keep it ticking over. 
    Has Pas, leccy front windows and central locking. Also has working Towbar see pic bellow. 
    There so much more I can say but I'd be here all night!
    Currently awaiting some Mot repairs to sort out emissions [ replace front downpipe ] and some minor welding to the rear floor pan . It should be ready for me to collect by Friday.  Any questions just ask away. Will add some pictures over the weekend once I've got the Car back. Still Insured till the end of May and Taxed etc.

    I’ve got to admit I’m not that bothered about it really it’s just it’s on my dads Jaag s type and he’s thinking of selling the car (the plate was already on it when he bought it off my work colleague)
     
    I’ve offered the plate back to my collegue first but he doesn’t want it now and he bought the plate originally but then I’ve done the same and left some interesting plates on cars before as I can’t be bothered with the hassle.
     
    I was thinking of putting the car up here for £450 as he spent £150 on it recently and obviously with the plate and it’s a real nice facelift S type with the later 6speed box and believe or not it’s actually rust free underneath with a long ticket and drives spot on and comes with a leaper lol
     
    I think my dad is either the 3rd or 4th owner of the car as my mate from work had the car for years

    For anyone thinking of buying it , I've been to see it , it's just as terry has described , he's put a lot of time in, it started from stone cold on the key, no smoke and ticked over nicely
     
    needs work inside, just a bit of modernising, new fabric , curtains etc , structurally and mechanically it seems fine
     
    My plans have been scuppered by mrs wack so unfortunately that's where my interest ends.

    Top work on the resto.
     
    Very clever the way you just cut a slug of glass away to repair the pillar, then when the repair is complete, chop the whole screen out and replace.
     
    Looks like the NSR had taken a bit of a bladdering and thus a fair bit of work to get it straight.
     
    I had a SWB with the 2.5 engine without the early banana manifold. No ball of fire but slogged away at the miles.
