    Hello. You've made it to the oldest, most dedicated corner of the internet about the trusty MK2 Vauxhall Cavalier.
    We're proud to be a VBOA affiliated owners club home to the General Motors 'J Car' platform and ALL of its variants worldwide*.

    The site started in 1998 and contains thousands of posts, articles, project threads and more, 
    offering many thousands of hours of content that we couldn't possibly fit onto our Facebook stream!

    We are an active club - seeking to refresh peoples memories of these brilliant cars - one of the most popular and fondly remembered of the 1980's. 
    We're a small band of enthusiasts here to keep these old girls running, and we're always on the look-out for new members & events. 

    Why not grab a coffee, sign-up, say hello or join the club today!

    *The MK2 had more variants than any other car of the eighties; 5 door hatchback, 2 & 4 door saloons, estate and a plethora of special editions ranging from the Antibes, Club, Commander to the limited run Calibre as well as convertible variants. It was also known as the Opel Ascona C, the Chevrolet Monza, Pontiac Sunbird the Holden Camira, Isuzu Aska and more!

    • Many thanks! It's been started up and driven around the farm where my unit is every few weeks to keep everything functional while it waits its turn for 'the treatment". The hot dry weather we had over most of the Summer means my unit is incredibly dusty inside. The car got a wash the other day - Before After Its not been forgotten about, just not got round to it yet!

    • Welcome back Jason, These guys on ebay seem pretty good.  I had a chassis leg off them yrs ago. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PETROL-FUEL-TANK-OPEL-VAUXHALL-CAVALIER-MK-2-1-6-2-0-MK-3-1-6-2-0-/380997938639 I am not sure if this is your tank but they should have one.  How many holes has it got?

    • they always remind me of a ford sierra front, like someone faxed a photo of one to China and asked them to make a copy and they didnt get it quite right
    • Was that JE wagon over this part of the world Rabbit, or did one of them make it to the UK?! The JE had a very challenging front end, for those of you who don't know what one looked like: Looks only a mother could love...
    • Looking for mk2 cav hatchback , wanted one that I could work on 1600 auto gl or gls
    • After either waiting for someone else to weld stuff for me, or borrowing a transformer based mig and struggling to get nice welds with the limited power settings they have, I thought...... And bought myself an inverter based mig - with infinite power adjustability, its as lot easier to weld to rusty old cars. Should make the weldathon to come a bit more enjoyable!
    • Let us know what you ideally are after and we can hopefully source you a car. Type, spec, budget, location, distance you are prepared to travel etc would be useful to start
    • Yes. I need  to borrow my dads for patching up my GLi
