Cavy — It get's me places, and it looks nice for the most part. Lacking in hp with a dinky 4 cylinder, but it's got 16s that are always clean. Haha, it's fun for the most part.

Love For The Cavalier — Its got a small engine, but its got a lot of humph which I love. Also the car is made in the states which is hard to find these days. I'm also very pleased with this car because I've had it for 4 years and I've yet to take it in to the shop. It just doesn't need a lot of work.
