1995 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24

About This Vehicle:

This is my baby, I have never realy given any car I owned before as much attention. I found it in the MI Auto and RV and called as soon as I got home from class. I looked at it the next morning, but couldn't drive it because the keys they cut were the wrong blanks, and the original keys were hidden by a mechanic that wanted to buy it. I drove it the following Sunday and picked it up on Tuesday 3-6-02. It dosen't have a lot of options which makes it light and quick, and looks realy good. I already have made it better. Everything was either done by myself or with the help of a friend or two. I never thought I would have all this acomplished less than a year after I bought it. And it will only get better as I get more and more done to it.
