    Default 1990 Cavalier good find!?

    Out doing the rounds with the boss today, (Plumbing and electrics)

    Went to an old ladies house who's moving to london. Opened the garage to find a Very, Very clean Vauxhall Cavalier L.

    Its Only done 63000 miles, shes owned it since 1992, and only been driven a handful of time since her husband died a few years back. It had a layer of dust on it!
    Tax'd and Mot'd till Febuary next year.

    When asked what shes doing with it, she replied, I think we're scrapping it! Criminal.

    Had a look around it and the only problem with it is there is a very very sligh bit of surface rust at the bottom of the wheel arch on the inner lip. Not even on show. The underneath is very clean and the exhaust looks new.

    I've left my phone number for her to contact her son in london and think of a price, Cant think it will be much after thinking of selling it to a man with "We buy scrap cars for cash" sign on a car!

    What engine would be in this? I thought it would be the 1600cc? Any other options on what it could be?

    Had a '89 GSi with the 20XE engine (not C20XE) and was much quicker and generally better to drive than my mates Cav C20XE. Only had it 10 months and wished I had kept it.

    So may people would just pass it off as a scrapper but that could be the Vectra-c find of the year

    i would say as you have shown interest in it the son (if he has anything about him car wise) may try and be cheeky and ask for good money, if not then i would say scrap value is at least £100 - £150 and it's worth every penny if it's as good as you think it is...
