seeing how its an auto cavalier with all seasons, I wouldn't expect much, probably 1-2 seconds of wheel slippage if I were to try.

Oh it is tall. Not as tall as the Ford Aerostar shifter that we used to have back in the 90's. Picture pulled from google for reference :

So my Savvy Cavi is finally up to speed and is now my daily driver. I got a new top with a vinyl plastic window vs the stock glass one professionally installed. At the end of the day, it cost me a little over $ 1k which is right where I pegged it. I'm in at about $2700 with this car which makes for one hell of an expensive cavalier but whatevs. I'm not one to let a car waste in neglect and feel kind of good bringing this car back to life.

my daily driver Nissan Sentra rental car while waiting for the top to get installed:

My sister's Dodge Caliber uses a Nissan CVT so I felt right at home with this one. The brakes are remarkably good on these Sentras but the car did feel a little underpowered. IN all honesty, this car kind of felt like an appliance. I'll leave it at that.

Sentra's in general kinda of imitate a mobile turd... If turds could be motorized, state registered, and require obeying road laws...
