1997 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24

About This Vehicle:

Purchased exactly one day after selling my 2001 Z24. Hard to get out of the J scene. Being 10 years old it gave me a restoration project and a chance to give the Z a new life versus it's prior state before purchase. This prior life left me fixing a lot of mistakes that went with it. At the end of the day it very well would've been easier to have started stock and fresh, but there's no challenge in that. The fact that my engine bay, exterior, and interior have all been completely gone over and look better than it did off of the showroom allows me to take tremendous pride in the time spent to achieve such.
