    My Astra and Cavalier.

    My name is Andrew and here are my little slices of small car GM.

    First up is the 1999 Cavalier Z24 that I have owned for 6 years. Loved the car so much that I could not bring myself to get rid of it when I got the new car. (That and the Cavalier is worth more to me to keep then I could get for a trade in.) Now I know most are not going to like the "tuner" look that I did with the car, but I have tried my best to keep it "clean".







    Next up is the Astra. I have nothing but praise for this car. It is one of the best GM small cars I have been in... If there is one thing I want to change about it, it is the bumper covers. I would have much rather had the VXR bumpers.









    Thanks for looking.

    Hmm...almost looks like you work at RIM.

    The Cavalier is clean looking, I like it. The Astra is just hot.

    Congrats on the new car. Hopeully you can have as much fun with yours as I do with mine, they are a nice car. So are you going to get some nice winter tires for the Astra, winter might play havok with those tires.

    Welcome.

    Nice Astra! I'm not a fan of the tuner style of your Cavalier, but do appreciate the energy and personality that go into each one. Nice.

    I like tuned Cavaliers alot more than regular ones The 2nd night shot there under the streetlamps is my favorite

    Congrats on the Astra too, slick looking ride
    When you turn your car on....does it return the favor?

    I plan on getting some, just have to work out the correct size. And I can say that the 8000km's I have on the Astra have been nothing but wonderful.

    Congrats on the vehicles!

    Honestly, I'm not a fan of body cladding for tuners. That said, your Cavalier is one of the most tasteful I've seen. No ridiculous decals, no fire, no enormous and utterly unreasonable wing.
