I had a good friend with one and just two weeks ago I was at the pick-a-part yard, and one was sitting there.
I'm not talking about the Z24. Z24 was a very common factory-option, but that's not what I'm talking about. The Z24 was a V6, got the FE4 suspension, and some graphics (and "Z24" embroidered in the seats) but the Z22 was a bone stock, plain-jane, NorthEast regional sticker package on a 4-banger cavvy.

Z22 is a GM option code... but not for a cavalier. Its an option code for Buick Roadmasters to be minimally prepped for custom aftermarket coach work; ambulances, hearses, flower cars, limos, etc.

But the Z22 cavalier is just a sticker package. If you wanted to the dealer could also put a spoiler on it with double-sided tape. Like this:
