Welcome to the Shitty Cars of Englewood #4
Within only blocks of the concrete bunker we find some of the junkiest jalopies in all of Colorado. It's not like us to keep this bounty to ourselves. Oh, no. We want to share it with you, our loyal readers.
Today we highlight this beautiful yet utlitarian 1986 Chevy Cavalier wagon which has suffered some minor front-end damage.
The Cavalier Wagon was available from 1985 to 1987. It was build on General Motors "J platform" and was nearly identical to the Pontiac Sunbird. It replaced Chevy's legendary Vega wagon. It's introduction was met with understandable fan fare.
Like the 1984 Ford Thunderbird we profiled in the Shitty cars of Englewood #3, this Cavalier typifies both the styling and the quality of mid-1980's American automobiles.
Notice the stylish, sweeping lines. Twin square headlamps flank either side of a tasteful plastic grill. Protective rubber strips run the length of the vehicle, protective in from door dings and adding decorative flair. Plastic sport mirrors add to the aggressive look. A ferocious 2.0 liter fuel-injected power plant provides the thrust.
A classic American grocery getter with panache.
