I bought the Z-24 in 1995 when the new design was first introduced. You
might notice that the Honda Civic is both more cramped inside and does not
provide an adequate arm-rest in the center console. I'm not a short guy, so I
highly appreciate the increased space on the inside, especially for all of the
long distance cross-country travel I have done. I'd buy another one, but
Chevrolet has stopped offering Z-24 models as of this year. This 95 Z-24 in
Hawaiian Orchid paint, factory five-star 16" wheels, and added tinted
windows has been the perfect college student car, as well as daily commuter
and distance travel vehcle for me.
The Hawaian Orchid (dark purple) paint has received friendly recognition
from strangers quite frequently. The interior is comfortable.
I'd suggest more horsepower and four-wheel disc brakes, only because a
Porsche Gemballa Turbo spanked me on the 10 Santa Monica Freeway
I would highly recommend that you do
not buy a cavalier. Maybe the newer
models are better but I bought mine,
a '95 a year ago and it's worth about
$1500 - $1900 because it has 128000
miles on it. The it takes a lot of
oil and has leaked antifreeze into the
engine. This costs between $800 and
$1200 to fix so I plan on maybe
selling it to a junkyard for a couple
hundred dollars. It has been nothing
but a pain in the ass to pay for the
upkeep of this car. Get a honda.
