1979 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 GL

1979 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 GL

Otherwise known as the Chevrolet Chevair and related to the Opel Ascona and Manta.

My first car, though I generally think of my first car as being the blue Dolomite which I painted a few posts ago. The main reason being that this was so short-lived, it was written off in a head on collision with a drunk driver who decided to overtake a lorry which was heading my way.

A bit of a boring car, I had the saloon and afterwards I wished I’d bought the sports-hatch which looked the same as the Opel Manta.

The crash soon remedied that and whilst the Dolomite replacement was a bit of a banger it was a far more interesting car – I’d have another one of those today 😊
