  • Welcome to the Owners Network!


    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!

    • Good to see your still alive, must get that catch up sometime, we missed out on a year or so ago 😄 My mojo is still hanging in there, champers is back on the road with turbo wheels 😇
    • I can speak to the mojo thing; After 2016 and the yellow cav still needing so many things (and shredding the back tyres, not in a good way), I couldn't look at the thing. It took selling Orwin to motivate me to save the others as I missed driving a MK2, as being in one has been a feature of, pretty much my whole life. Returning to MK2's as a project, even just 7 years after the Angouleme trip (the last time I finished a mk2 build), the scene is so different. These cars are now much rarer, appreciating and harder to find bits for as they head to 40. That challenge to overcome and the fact that no-one on the street has any idea what these cars are now has fuelled my own desire to get on with things again. I'm bored of looking at silver, red white and blue jelly moulds on the roads. Well it's probably that, and avoiding my day job, covid and a rusty fire engine. But I'll say this - it will come back when it's ready. I'm glad you kept the old bus @Richie!  As for other returners here, I come here because it's the antithesis of FB, it's not throwing everything at you demanding you click. Good to see you back mate! Any chance of a couple of pics? 
    • At least you have still got the cav mate just incase the mojo comes back one day. Has it still got the saab lump in?
    • Good to see you back fella.
    • Hi Guys First time on here for a few years so thought I'd post as some of you don't do other platforms. Just had a read on a few projects and nice to see some new and old faces, stuy, abo, nice to see you guys back. Greg, nice to see nothing changed with the LX🤣, Well the saabalier is still tucked up after 3 years and shes still looking fine, took a once over it last week and needs a few machanical things doing for a mot but at the moment i've no desire to do anything to it, still lost the mojo 😪 Like a few of you i've been busy with divorce, luckerly it was a mutal thing so all good, been busy with a new house, life and women for the last couple of years, amazing how divorce makes you look at things differently 🤣. Hope you all have been keeping safe during this difficult 12 months and maybe catch up 1 day 👍  
    • Glad you got it sorted. Enjoy your run.
    • hi guy i have the cavalier cabby back and running sweet issues were as follows parts replaced leads+plugs+distributor cap+arm and air flow meter work carried out at the garage throttle bodie linkage set up had been altered by previous owner air flow meter was knackered new one set up distributor cap had a hair line crack coil lead was weak so there was a number of issues no wonder it was running rough hopefully will give it a run out on Sunday.
