# The Classic - Vauxhall Cavalier 2.0L,8V

Like the saying goes " No matter where life takes you, don't forget where you come from" Jenson Button still loves the first car he ever bought, a Vauxhall Cavalier 2.0 L 8 Valve and he said in an interview with Top Gear that he couldn't get the 2.0L16 Valve because he couldn't afford it at that time. He got this car for £2000 Euros which he received as a winning amount from Karting and customized it by putting 17 wheels, Sachs Suspension and speakers in it and it drove too well for him.
