Not it: Hooniverse Weekend Edition – A Custom 3-Wheeler using the bones of a Cavalier | Hooniverse

Not it, either: Chevy Cavalier Trike Photo by SRX660 | Photobucket

Perhaps relevant: e-Parts Source Classifieds - Motorcycles and Parts - BUILD AN AWESOME CAVALIER TRIKE

Best-looking Fiero trike: Fiero trike - from West Michigan Burn Survivors Car Show - Pennock's Fiero Forum [not it]

I searched for "Cavalier three wheel motorcycle," then looked up the Cavalier, and searched for "xx Cavalier trike," inserting each model year, 88-94.

Well, that was boring!

I occasionally see a car very similar to this driving around my home town. I never have been able to snap a picture of it, but I think it is a Sunfire.

The bug splats make it hard to tell, but that looks like it may be a motorcycle rear suspension. Motorcycle powered maybe?

The Sunfire(?) near me appears to be powered by the original drivetrain and sits lower in the back.

That swing arm may have a motorcycle-based design, but it doesn't seem to be motorcycle powered, at least from the angles of the picture it doesn't show a drive chain. Anyway, it wouldn't be impossible to use the original engine and mod the gearbox for chain-drive, and getting a large trunk in the front...

Think about that some more, because it's downright silly.

Often, Ecomodder.com shows up early in my search results, but looking at your thread, I did not see any of my search terms.

Thanks for sharing! Now, if only we actually had some information!

Spinners are downright silly...
