Got mine December of '99.
Helluva path that it's gone through over the years.
From a daily driver with ricey mods to mods that meant more than cheap autozone crap, to paintball team transportation, and finally a few years in the garage taking a dramatic turn to what I always wanted.
I'm pretty much through with it as funds aren't anywhere they used to be but it's always going to be in the stable along with the 'yota and Porsche.
Newbie member since 1999 Thank you Dave and JBO!
Ive had mine since 0 miles in 2004.. been a wonderful ride.. im fixing to list it on here for sale it now has about 125 thousand miles on it and still not a problem.. its modded to death lol and someone is gonna get there dream cavi!
I bought my 00 Cavalier in 2001. Had just short of 9,000 miles on it then. It now has 231,000 miles on it. It's filled with little dents and dings, but I feel no need to replace it. Amazingly, other than the transmission and basic stuff like tires/brakes/battery, a lot of the parts are original. The only car I've ever personally seen that has held up better than mine is my uncles 96 Subaru Impreza which has nearly 350,000 miles on it - original transmission and engine.
It's amazing how long a car will last with a little basic maintenance. Neither me nor my uncle take "perfect" care of our cars. Just an oil change every 3-4k miles... The occasional coolant flush and tranny fluid change. Simple stuff. On the flipside you see jackasses who buy new cars and ruin them by 80,000 miles.

Hey guys, I just rejoined this group after many year absence. I owned my 1990 cav Z24 black since new oct 31, 1989 until it was t boned and totalled in september 1991 at only 22,000 miles. I ended up with a mitsubishi eclipse for about a year until i bought my current 1993 sunbird red 2 door 2.0 liter 5 speed new on june 7, 1993. Sadly it just met a pole hard, and isn't comming back. Currently looking to replace one of these. I posted in automobiles wanted.
