1985 Vauxhall CavalierReview
This Was My 1st Car (not Actual Pic!) — 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 the Cavalier, it was a reliable runner and had plenty of room for four adults to cruise around in in comfort. Also unlike the Ford Orion, the police never looked at you.
Pros: Good road handling, Spacious interior, Reasonable MPG.
Cons: No real street cred, (unless kitted up)
