only if it's a '94 or earlier... The later ones... Say what you will, I don't like them. (wreteched uncomfortable cars) and if it's specifically a '95, Don't buy it. they have an engine unique to that year and are a headache if they break

The Jbody is an awesome choice if you go with a newer model with a warrenty, or an older model (for ease to work on). I love the 2nd Gen (1988 - 1994) but honestly, the 2.8L and 3.1L are the best starters for a Mechanic in Training. But it's easy to access where you need to be, and budget friendly if you're able to make repairs yourself. I personally like the engine compartment of my Cavi for the ease. Beats working on a Grand Prix anyday.

DO NOT buy a 1995 Cavalier... They have an engine with parts that are specific to that year, and only that year... My buddy blew up 3 engines becuase they kept putting '96 engines in his '95 and it didn't work with the rest of the car.

Better off with a bicycle. More reliable and costs less to work on, even if you get run over by a old Cavalier that just broke down.
