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!

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

9c1 — I own the 9C1 so it says caprice on the dasy but you all know its all balls. Its fast and can beat most cars off the line and scare the crap out of ricers and lead foots. Girs like it when you hit the gas in town and always makes their heads turn. not bad for under 5000 bucks.

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.

It's hilarious

Cons

Knick knack problems stemming from it's police service life

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.
