I Love It In The Snow. — Handles as well as a chassis from 1977 can with the 9C1 setup. Built fairly well, better than you may expect a car 15 years old to perform. The LT1 does as best as it can, but my 3.42 gears, and PCMforless tune aided it greatly. It's not great on fuel but I drive it hard. You can't beat the look of stomping some dork in his Hemi Ram with an ugly old paint peeling police car. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

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

Skies The Limit — I love this car and get alot of respect from people. It took alot of hard work to get this where it is now and I'm still in the process of getting some more work done. The color cordinates with the interrior and its sitting nice on some 24'' rims. The sound system is emaculant!

All Around Awesome — 5.7L LT1 with 9C1 police package. still has the spotlight on the drivers A-pillar. wig wags work also. can chase down a corvette on the expressways. topped out at 155 mph. i also had a cb installed to have the antenna on the back to make look like actual police car.

I Love My Caprice — hottest car in life, burns rubber and is a very comfy ride. build quality is very good. there are a few small problems. such as the distributer getting owned by the water pump. parts are pretty cheap, and its so much fun to drive! it just begs for you to take it out and put a good beating on it.
