    Cavy — This was my first car and i love it. Performs good and can easily be modded to fit your needs. I havent came across a major problem with this car and the way it's running (strong), I won't anytime soon.

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

    Pros: Good gas mileage, can be customized, good first car

    Cons: manual door locks and windows

    Cavy — Overall performance is pretty good, handles nice and stops well. It is a solid car even there is some rust in front of the rear wheels but thats a cavalier thing. It looks well and is sporty for a cavalier basically the American Honda Civic. Put a system and new exhaust and the car can turn heads.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive, Loud car if a system is installed

    Cons: Rust forms in front of rear wheels

    Jake — It's a good reliable car. It's never let me down. And for a cavalier its got a lot of pep and it looks pretty good. It just has a lot of stupid little problems that need fixed for it to run as well as it could.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Rims. Tint. Body kit. Tail lights. Coupe.

    Cons: Its a cavalier.

    97 Cavy Ministock — Bought this one to replace my old 97 cavy that I wrote off the year before. The old car worked great so I decided to stick with what i know works and built another one. It keeps with the nissan 240's and honda preludes that dominate the division.

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

    Pros: Cheap, easy to find parts for, interchageability with this and other cars.

    Cons: mac phearson strut, solid rear axel

    I Really Like It — it handles well, brakes well, has guts for the car it is, it is old so needs repairs, runs well for almost 300,000 km, good milage, i like to drive my baby,cost me 600$ not much i have had to do to it sence i bought it... just inspection and oil change, needs rocker pannels and some exhaust work. nothing more then that sense it is just a beater car.

    Pros: it handles well

    Cons: it's falling apart

    My Baby — She is my baby and is very faithful.... She has a bad clutch but decent performance for the number of miles. I bought it for about 1200 dollars and still have her. I love driving this car and she has feelings just like all cars do haha.

    Pros: love how it can take me about anywhere

    Cons: bad clutch, getting some high miles...

    1997 Chevy Cavalier — i loved this car. it was the 4 cylinder automatic Rally Sport edition. The car was bright white with the black cloth seats. This car had pretty good acceleration, good braking and great handling. I could drive it through any type of weather and never worry about being safe. The car was easy to fix if anything went wrong. I replaced the hood, bumper and front right fender in my garage in a total of 3 hours. They were dented up from the previous owner and i junk yarded some "new" parts that bolted on without a problem. The interior was comfortable and very spacious. I'm 6'3" and i fit fine without every hitting my head or anything. The car got 22 mpg in the city which was great when the price of gas was up to $4. the car was very easy to maintain and was cheap to fix. to replace all the brakes, calipers, rotors etc, and tires it cost a total of 1200. not bad when you think about all the work it took. the only bad thing i have to say is that it could have had a little more power. Free way entrances weren't fun but once on the road it was a blast.

    Pros: great handling, mileage, maintenaince, and all around car.

    Cons: not enough power

    Cavalier — Over all it was a great car. The tires were 10's which is where i had some minor problems because when one of them blew out it cracked the whole rim. This car was well maintained and definitely used for racing with the adjustments that were made. Takes off like a bat out of hell if you know how to drive. Excellent condition sold it a little over a year ago to some friends who are enjoying their freedom now.

    Pros: acceleration, gas mileage

    Cons: tires are imported from korea
