What can I say... I love this car to bits. After having Novas for my last 3 cars, I needed a change and always loved the 80's boxy shape of the MKII Cavalier, so when I spotted this real gem for sale, I just had to have it.
It's had two Vauxhall mechanics as previous owners, so it's had most parts replaced on it already, making it in effect only 2 years old!
The body was restored 5 or 6 years ago too, so it really is a minter although some minor blemishes are starting to show again.
It really is a joy to drive and to my amazement, handles better than my Novas did and they were all highly modified, whereas this Cav is standard! The gear box is silky smooth and the power just flows like there's no tomorrow.
The seats are extremely comfortable and the height adjustment of the driver's seat is great, as are the height adjustable seat belts and adjustable steering column, especially since I'm short. They all add up to a fantastic driving position.
Standard specification is great too with electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, slide/tilt sunroof, sports front seats, central locking, fantastic looking two-tone paint scheme, front fog lights, sports suspension, tilt-able steering column, time-delay interior light with separate map-reading lights, etc etc.
I intend to keep it as standard as possible as it really is a future classic who's prices are already starting to appreciate. A Friend was offered £1500 for his the other week! It is definitely a car worth buying now while they're still cheap and keep as an investment.
The only modifications mine has got are a K&N panel filter, stainless exhaust, gorgeous and rare Calibra SE 15" 5-spoke alloys, custom-made front grill, leather steering wheel and stereo system.
I fell very lucky getting mine for a straight swap for my last Nova!
I fancy a garage with this Cav, plus a Calibre and a Convertible too! :)
