Cavalier and Chevette Club Launch Cadet Membership. Cadet Membership has been created so that younger people with an interest in Vauxhall Cavalier’s, Vauxhall Chevette’s and associated models can get involved in Classic Cars. We’re not trying to segregate the club into young and old far from it. We are trying to encourage more young people to go and purchase a Vauxhall Cavalier or Vauxhall Chevette in order to help protect the future of these car’s and introduce a new generation to Classic Car Ownership. You don’t have to own a Cavalier or Chevette or even have to have passed your driving test to be a member, just an interest in the car’s is sufficient. So, if you are aged 25 years or younger then you are welcome to join the Cadet Membership. Please find below a summary of the membership.
