    Sweet And Def A Car To Hook Up — this car is all around a sporty car. got nice take off stock. beats a mustang 5.0 easily. 1995 n older that is. n keeps up with the 96 to 2000. this car is fun to mess around in. nice wide tires to easily ebrake in. take turns fast. and burns out like a champ covering the whole car in smoke

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: fast and now a classic

    Cons: hard to find parts

    Fun — this was my second car i ever bought i got it when i was eighteen back in 1998 loved it , the cavalier was a convertable and a v6 was very surprised to have a digital dash , 6 speed with comfortable seats, it was a good car my girlfriend at the time loved to put the top down and just cruze the streets had a bangin system in it and put a different muffler on it to make the 6 cylinder just roar.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: fun to drive comfortable and a head turner

    Cavi — I have always loved the styling of these cars. The car had a motorswap done to it when I got it from a 2.8 to a 3.1 multiport. The car had the ultra cool digital guage cluster which was fun. This was my first car and definatley a learning experience. I didnt get to drive it much just because I bought it when I fresh turned 16 but when it was out it was a lot of fun.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: just cool

    Cons: body rust

    Sick And Fast For Cheap — car is fast and cheap for the money you'd spend buying it as long as she's a standard anyways. 2.8 v6 wasnt bad on gas and it roasted the tires pre good, if you wanna stay outta trouble dont get this car that for sure

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: fast

    Cons: expensive to fix at high km

    Decent — good beater car they take a lickin and keep on tickin, and the z24 handles pretty good for a shoe box too, just make sure you get the one with the 2.8 liter engine the 3.1 isn't very reliable, cheap to fix cheap to insure & decent on fuel

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: cheap

    Cons: no good reasons
