    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!

    • Thankyou for all the comments. This year will be focused on sorting out around the sunroof where the metal has now split and needs plating and filling. Then it will be any welding for M.O.T next year. 
    • That's pretty much the same as mine... although yours looks much cleaner  
    • Perfect weather for it!! Nice looking car, facelift lights and trim work well....
    • Hiya everyone..not so new user ..but tbh my profile has been dormant since I sold my cav 12years ago now!!! ...god time flies doesn't it!? Anyway iam back in a cav now ( just not as a daily driver anymore ) and have been for just over a year !!! Some of you might recognise the car as it's been around on here for some time .... trying my best just to keep it tidy and on the road at the minute as I've just purchased my second house .... and that's just rinsing money from me !!!🤣🤣 although the 1.8 is slowly passing on as it seems slower everytime I drive it now and has generated a few oil leaks!! I've recently purchased a Calibra with the favoured xe lump in to convert the Cav ... will keep you posted on the progress. Cheers ARRON
    • Im from Mansfield Notts mate
    • Il let you know on the bulb holder mate thanks.
    • Hi chris iv now got it running and got nearly all the electrics working just need to work on the brakes now as there seized up but should free off. im going to get an MOT on it and run it as iv always wanted one. I need to fit the lower front spoiler on and and paint it and will paint the rear valance and give the rear arches some attention as there is bit of corrosion as you can see on the pictures. The old guy I got it off bought it new and sprayed oil all over the underneath before parking it up, it looks **** but has saved it to be fair.
    • Welcome. Where abouts are you? If you end up needing one of those bulb holders I'll post you one. I'll dig out what the bulb is tomorrow.  
    • You lucky boy! Welcome to the club, get some more pics up, not just the good bits, bad an all,  loads of help and advice on here. Whats your plans?
