I was at the entrance gate to my base, and the "Homeland security" guard checked my ID, then went to the back of my car. When he came back he said " Is this the supercharged one?" (duh). And I said " Yea, I'm suprised you know what it is cuz most people don't."

he smiled: "It's just a Cavalier."

"Awww, it's nothing like a cavalier. it's much nicer." I replied

"Naawp, nawwp. It's a cavalier. Same underpinnings."

I gave him a dirty look, shook my head, and drove off. I could see him laughing at me in my side view mirror.

The funny thing was, was that it was like a 65 yr old man. Fucking dickhead :mad:

What was the old platforme the cavalier rode on? Cuz the Delta platform is all new, only for Ion and cobalt, right? And is there anything from the cavalier the cobalt shares?

LOL @ Bizo!!!

Oh and phxSS, the main thing I can remember the platforms being called (not the exact term I believe) but most people referred to them as the J-body platform.

ya everyone calls my SS a cavalier...pisses me off. As well as the Ions and Cobalts i believe the pontiac pursuit is built on the same platform as well, however those cars are exclusive to canada only

as somebody once said...the look on some dudes face once you hand him his ass in a saturn is priceless!!

you might want to get used to it. i have owned my SRT4 for over a year. i have given up on the it's not a neon mentality. even tho the only thing the neon and SRT4 share is the unibody. i dont mind. it has kind of grown on me now that i have embraced the neon mentality. now when some stupid ass makes the comment i just ask if they wanna run and they quietly refuse the offer.

Well, I got complimented on my car last night by a car on a Harley. he was shouting (over his loud exhaust) "That's a badass car, man! What is it?"

"Cobalt SS," I said.

"I'm gonna have to check them out."

Yea, so that was cool :)

this is so true.
most of the time, when someone makes a comment such as,
"it's just a ____.", they usually drive a pos themselves, and are
just a wee bit jealous.

a car is a car.
fast is fast.
slow is slow.

:D

crazy, what kind of car? Was it the one from Roger Rabbit?
Anyway, getting called a cavalier is gonna be a daily part of your life. I know I drive a POS Neon ;) Once you start smoking the shit out of everyone around youll nolonger be disrespected lol. I have beaten all the fast cars (that will race) in my neighborhood and I dont get shit from anyone anymore.

It really does not matter what people call your car cavalier,ion or a neon.A car is just steel plastic and rubber and a name on the outside.My redline is a ion pure and simple the cobalt replaces the cavalier and the srt is a souped up neon.You cant get around facts calling your car a cavalier is not a insult.I love my redline or would have loved the cobalt ss but if I had the money these cars would not have been my first choice.Now if you call a corvette or a mustang cobra a ion neon or cobalt then they would be mistaken.

I don't mean to piss on this party but there are many similarities between the Cobalts and the Cavaliers. I have no problem with this. I believe what GM intended for this car was to build off the Cavs strengths and improve on its weaknesses. The result a more sturdy firm ride. The SS with power the Cav never heard of before in stock form. Just like the Neon and SRT4, same cars, one a vast improvement over the other.
