The car that started it all is now gone
Friday, May 04, 2007 6:24 PM
It was 10 years ago, almost to the day. My 1984 Nissan 200SX was just about on its last leg. I had a decent job, and not a lot of bills, I decided I could afford a new vehicle. It was almost a given that it would be a Chevrolet. My friends all owned Chevys, and as far as cars and trucks went, that is all we ever talked about.

Once I took a good look at the Cavalier Z24, I knew thats what I wanted. It was very sporty looking, had one of the most powerful engines in its class, and was reasonably priced. After hopping from one dealer to another looking for the right car, and trying to get financed, I ended up at Gunderson Chevrolet in El Monte (I think its called Power now). With my parents help I got a great deal on the car, and got good financing.

Sometime in 1998 I found my way onto several J-body email lists. At the time the only decent web site was z24.com, and there wasn't a whole lot on it. I decided to follow the naming scheme of other popular GM sites f-body.org and y-body.org and I registered j-body.org. My goal was to bring everything together into one place. The rest is history.

Sadly I announce today that my days as a Cavalier owner are over. The car was returned to near-stock form (a few stray parts remained, that could not be easily changed). It was sold to a coworker of mine who needed cheap and reliable transportation.


To better days...

I didn't say I'm no longer a J owner, I said I'm no longer a Cavalier owner. I do still have a Sunfire. I probably won't be doing a whole lot with that car, but I'm going to keep it as a fun little weekend driver for now.

I guess that's the part I forgot to mention. He's a good guy, but he has some of the worst luck, especially when it comes to cars. He has had engines blow , quite a few fender benders, and one totalled car. He has gone through 3 cars so far as long as I have known him (5 years or so now?). I do hope for the best for him with this car though.
