EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE, plenty of leg room, massive trunk for a
kickass sub setup

Cons

Slow (at least the 305), only 11-12mpg on a good day

Definition Of A Cruiser — This car is a classic, hence it's name "caprice classic." It can be mistaken for an old lady car, but if you ride it the right way it can have a good impression "i.e putting old school rally style rims on it". The most potent was the 350Cid, although it was not offered in my year so i have the 305. This car is solid as it was used as a police cruiser until 1994 when it went out of production. This car seriously is a couch on wheels, you'd have to drive it to know.

Beautiful, Hardworking, And Dependable...everything A Girl Should Be!!! Ok Just Kidding! — I have a station wagon that I bought in North Dakota for $625.00...tean years ago! I was in college at the University of North Dakota. I handled great on the ice and in the snow and it hauled everything and evryone I wanted. The thrid seat in the back ws populat and I often was the designated driver and about 1o people could pile in! After graduation, I drove it all the way to Washington State and it literally sailed over the mountains. The car was loaded with everything I owned. It is nnow getting overhauled and painted, so I gues I'll have it around for several more decades! Love it!!!!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

1983 Chevy Caprice "draggin" Wagon — My very first car given to me by my dad. It was a station wagon which was kind of embarrasing, but it also made it the party wagon in high school and was the most popular vehicle in my group of friends. Still to this day we talk about all the times we took turns surfing on the luggage rack while the driver took us down the Iowa gravel roads at 60 mph. It is a wonder we survived. Although the car has by now been recycled into license plates, it was still the funnest car I ever owned.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
