1997 Chevrolet Cavalier

About This Vehicle:

*****pics are old, car does not look like this anymore****This is now my Daily Driver/Beater since i bought the new cav, but here is the story behind it. I wanted a z24 but searched for months for one with a 5spd and had no luck finding one so i ended up with a 2.2l 2 door 5pd. I was going to put a full body kit on this car but i didnt want something aggresive, i was looking more for the real clean look. I love the way z's look so i decided to just put z24 bumpers and aftermarket side skirts. I then sent it to get painted vivid yellow which is a little different then the stock cavalier yellow, it is the color of a 2003 mazda protege 5.
