I'd go with the 2nd gen. A little creativity and a willingness to learn a thing or two and you'll be in business. There are too many new caveliers around anyways. What's the difference in price? If the '93 is a lot cheaper, then get that and modify it some. If the 3rd gen's like 5 grand or so, find a real car like a camaro or a mustang if you want go. It's not worth building a 4-banger.

OK, how much does each car cost? I have noticed that (around here anyway) V6 cavaliers are selling for about the same as 95+ 4 Cyl Z24s... the newer (3rd gen) Cavs arent holding their value as good as the older ones.... example, 80-100K mile 91-94 V6 convertibles sell for as much as 6K compared to a 95+ vert's between 5K and 8K avg price..

Well you have to ask yourself.. is it going to be a daily driver, and are you going to spend a lot of money fixing the 10 year old car.. as opposed to the 1-2 year old car? It all depends on what you are going to use it for =)
