1984 Chevrolet CavalierReview
The Beast — was a Cavalier Type 10, the "so called" sport package for 1984 as the Z-24 did not emerge until 1985 1/2. I thought she was the prettiest thing on 4 wheels. I think the best thing about this car was its simplicity: no power steering, power brakes, power mirrors, windows or door locks, digital electronics or air conditioning. It was me at the controls, driving the machine. I miss her...
Pros: Torquey and Light. Good MPG although at $1.25, it wasn't as much of an issue as it is today. Rarely broke, cheap to fix.
Cons: Unfortunately, later in its life several things broke at once and it was in my family's best interest to move on.
