My old Cavalier SRi (A reg), not my first car, but my second and first I had 100% of choice over (in other words my parents didn't help pay for).

Note the sticker in the very rear side window, a conversion chart from litres to gallons that petrol stations used to give you to help with the conversion in the pricing.

Yes it is a Garfield, I think the sun eventually rotted him out.

Never saw an SRi that colour. My wife collected Garfields. I used to go to the warehouse shop of the company that imported them, Dakins at Waterbeach near Cambridge, to buy them.

My Cavalier was an SR so 1.6 4 speed gearbox rather than 1.8i 5 speed. Still shifted though.
