    There is a Vo-tech school in town that takes cars from junk yards and fixes them for the junk yard. The school takes the car and all of the parts that the junk yard provides and fixes it for free. :D It is great to hear that the school is asking the junk yards for cars to fix and then letting the junk yard sell them or whatever after they are done. The cool part is that neither one of the first 2 junk yards had cars for the school. So my dad ended up doanting 2 of our cars to get fixed. :bow: One of them happens to be my Cavalier convertible. It needs a lot of work done and I didn't want to do it. All that we will have to do to it is paint it. I am excited because my car will get done within a few months instead of a few years.



    Just wanted to share my exciting news.

    I don't have any of what it looks like now and the school has already taken it to fix it.

    It looks kind of like this now, but it's a white convertible. I want it to look like the other one, but still white. I want it white with pink flip-flop stickers walking up the hood and down the trunk and a pink pearl clear coat over that. These pictures are as close as I could get to the one I have.

    *Update*

    So the 97 Cavalier just showed up at my dad's shop this morning. That means it's time for me to start going up there to work on it. I gotta put the fenders, bumpers, and hood on it. I can't wait to look at it. :D
