Was Cool At The Time! — Bit of a banger when I had it. Red paint was soooo faded! Quite nice spec though! I crashed it a couple of times and it still kept going! Eventually turned out it was a insurance write off...the old guy I bought it off stuffed me! :(

Cav Sri 130 — the performance car to have ,back when it was released in 1987 it was ground breaking to have a medium sized car with 130 bhp these cars were well sought after to have such power at the front wheels.good car.

1.6l Cavalier — Rubbish car, the only way to drive was to thrash it to within an inch of it's life and wrestle it through the corners as was only 1.6L! Handbrake worked well though.... It's demise was a result of it's shocking handling!

This Was My 1st Car (not Actual Pic!) By Michael

As a first car this was a real bargain, I was also looking at a Ford Orion 1.6i, but ended up with the better car in the end. When I came to sell the car she was worth more. I had a good year with ... Read More
