1997 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24

About This Vehicle:

I bought my Z24 in February 1998. Since that time my car has seen many looks and I have had numerous sponsors. Also, aftermarket products including the Iceman 2.4L intake, AEM 2.4L intake, the Street Weapon Drift kit, and the Fiber Images carbon fiber ram air hood were designed on my car.

This J-Body has been a part of many firsts including both aftermarket products and innovations for many in the J-Body community. For me, this car represents the starting point for what I have worked hard for in my career. It was finally parted out and sold in 2011. In its prime, it was featured in Super Street Magazine, seen at many events nation-wide and utilized by GM in their LD9 supercharger development program. If it werent for the J-Body, I would not be where I am today. So, thank you JBO!
