One Of Gm's Better Ones — Good solid car. Bought in Boone, NC for $800.00, back in 2001. Drove it for several years. Sold it for $400.00 in about 2003, was spotted in Roanoke still on the road in 2009, in very poor condition. Good on trips, decent mileage, overall pretty good. If you are going to get one, get an 87 and up with fuel injection, mine was carbed and it would have problems sometimes. The headliner fell down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: decent performance and mileage, comfortable, reliable

Cons: sort of cheap breakable interior, headliners all fall down, kind of old looking.

1986 Chevy Caprice — Performance isn't that great stock, it has body roll and 273 gears in the rear so they don't move until highway speeds Quality is great, I mean its a Chevy come on Gas Mileage is good for a full size car at like 20mpg, you get like 500 miles out of a tank Appearance is good without the fake final top Fun factor can be fun, you just gotta know how to drive it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a Chevy

Cons: Its slow

Caprice-not Just For Snipers — great car. smooth running. huge car, so you feel like you own the road when you drive it. it had the same body and i think the same powertrain as the camaro, so it was quite a time to drive. it really seemed to float around the curves and was very reliable, as you would expect from a chevy.

Pros: big bad smooth running car.

Cons: those DC snipers ruined the reputation of a great ride. also, lots of old people drive these things.
