    that must have been some machine, the cav must be quite light compared to a vectra

    i was just a bit too young to own anything bigger than a 1600 at the time

    it was, and still is a weapon.. utter road burner... based on a 2 ltr GLS with the front end of a V6 C25XE grafted in.. including vectra B brakes... built at ellesmere port...

    it was a devil to insure, and even worse for parts..but i still miss it..

    I had a 2.0 SRi hatch in Royal Blue,it had the full whistles & bells fitted,very sad day when it was sold [DVLA took my license of me for a year due to having black when driving.....not good]
    A girl bought it,she saw it on the Sat and said she would come back with boyfriend on the Sunday to road test which she did ,his driving was 110% turned out he drove high performance police cars on the M25.

    Had 6 MK3 Cavs over the years, my favourite being a Metallic Black 2.0 SRI with the old 130bhp engine. Went like the clappers, and had a few extras on it. Loved that car!

    Here's my old Cav







    It started life with me as a 2wd GSI & bit rusty round the rear arches. Was biding time to have it restored & a fresh coat when one day I shunted a taxi driver up the rear at a roundabout & totalled the front end. I'd seen a couple with the E36 BMW headlights & liked the look (this was before angel headlights were commonly available) so I customised those in and fitted an E36 rear spoiler commonly found on M3's. Then I bought a Cav turbo with knackered transfer box & put the engine with 6 speed box in & ended up running about 250bhp. Also the heated leather

    Then the missus fell pregnant And I thought you can only polish a turd so long.

    Now that old heap has gone I don't have to visit a mates garage every fortnight to sort something out, we have one little girl (and another being born tomorrow so watch this space), and a nice Vectra (which uses as much fuel as a 250bhp Cav Turbo ) and things couldn't be better.

    Still want another one though but she won't let me
