Why oh why did we get the sh*tty fronted Griffins and not the cool Euro spec Opal's, they look so much better, although my mates one he just sold was still amazingly cool but a saloon.

Hi all.
I had a lovely green chevette many years ago. I was at work one day and the missus was driving it, when it
got a flat tyre. She got some bloke to change the wheel and the stupid c**t put the jack through the floor
of my car. sm2 sm2 sm2
Good luck Ben with the new motor.
Cheers Mark. sm4

It was an awesome little screamer, not at all quick but sounded silly loud in a good way from the SS side exit exhaust.
It was pretty much on the bumpstops and handled like a go kart yet retained a really nice ride quality which was nice, sadly unlike my 340 :?

That Cavalier looks tidy VND. They were everywhere at one time, saw one today and it struck me how few and far between there are getting now. My mate had a couple of GSI's, first time I drove one the front wheels seamed to take the steering wheel out of my hands! :lol: I've still got the wheels off one of his cars....they fit the 300's nicely 8)

Nice one! You got a good car and its deffinatly a suitable replacement. Funny thing is if I didn't own a 300 I'd probably own one of these. It's the ultimate cheap and practical 90s car :D

Gahhh! It's a retro repmobile! I suppose you could have done worse and bought a Vectra.

Now remember, keep away from the spanners and any temptation to touch with a screwdriver.

If only it was RWD. Then it'd tick all the boxes.
