Cavalier nostalgia

My folks had a lot of cool cars when I was a nipper, most of which there's no evidence of any more. The '82 Saab 900 Turbo, the '84 Alfa 33 Gold Cloverleaf, the '90 Rover Vitesse, the '82 Citroen CX Pallas... all just faint memories. Imagine my glee in stumbling across this photo - possibly the last remaining shot of DKG 494V - the trusty old family runaround. It's a chrome-and-Rostyle clad 1980 Vauxhall Cavalier 2000 GLS and I like to think that somewhere, somehow, it's still bringing joy to a young and happy family.

I'm fooling myself, obviously. It's definitely bought the farm.
