    You know you have too many cars when you forget you have one.

    Cav has been keeping me entertained and busy!!! This has been out of sight out of mind but have the belts kit and water pump all sitting and will do all the fluids come spring or thereabouts

    Lovely motor. I'm a cavalier fan but also can't help but like the calibra. Remember a maths teacher from high school having one!
    I occasionally daydream that I open a shed or shipping container and discover a car that I bought and put away and forgot about! Lol.

    I can’t remember the last time I seen one of these on the road. That’s definately one to hold onto!

    Wouldn't be a Vauxhall man but that's a nice motor.

    There's a black one with VXR graphics and an exhaust in the centre of the back bumper driving around co. Tyrone, I've been trying to get a pic of it for the sniff thread for ages lol

    Yeah cav is my firm favourite and I never was keen on Cali till I picked up a wee se8

    Both cav and Cali were parked up in 2012 and cav returned this year so hope Cali will be good to go next year

    I’ll be honest I haven’t a clue... I had what I would have considered a strong offer back in 2012... but as you say where do you go to find another

    I do know of a few others which are ultra low too though

    It was initially my daily... but quickly realised it would go downhill quickly with the miles I do 15-18k a year usually

    Love that. It must be lovely to drive even with standard power. I do have a soft spot for the old Vauxhalls

    Yeah small things like how tight even indicator stalks are even compared to the cavalier

    Cav is lowered and quite harsh this just feels like a wallowy comfy cruiser and the big wide seats compared to the bucket type of the cav t as well

    Just had timing belt and pump as well as all engine and mechanical fluids done so she’s good to go for another while too

    Detailing time coming up

    That’s awesome. My dad had a couple of red top calibras in the day so I’ve always had a soft spot for them.

    I know it’s about keeping it oem but I can’t help think how amazing it would look with the turbo fans on it

    I have spare sets of the early turbo rims lol and the Bbs 16’s off the dtm edition

    But these have grown on me too

    Tbh if I was modding it a slight drop on 17” speedline mistrals in a nice high power silver would be immense
