Best Return On Your Dollar, You Won't Regret It! — Purchased my Caprice in 2005 with a bad 305 from my friends neighbor who's daughter didn't know what oil was. I replaced the 305 with a 1991 police 350 and drove the Caprice everywhere (LA, Vegas, Reno, Canada, etc). 24 mpg highway fuel mileage, stump pulling torque thanks to a torque RV cam I installed with the 350 when installing. Solid as a rock and floats like a butterfly and super easy low maintenance costs (wish I could say the same for my newer BMW 3 series and X3). My wife knows I will keep it forever (met her in it while completing grad school in 2008). Her parents love the ride and borrow it when in town LOL! I own a 1963,'65 and a 1970 Impala also (my '70 is my personal favorite and owned since high school) . You can't go wrong with the 1977-90 Caprice 5.0 V8 and above.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very dependable, easy maintenance costs, powerful yet economical and best driving riding car of my fleet (own a newer BMW 3  series and an X3 LOL).

Cons: No complaints, only the 1977-90 Chevy's were die hard cars though did not have the classic styling of 1972 and prior Impalas (owned a 1970 Impala coupe which was just as reliable as the Caprice though far better looking).

86 Caprice-fun, Powerful, Classic —

The performance of this car is great. It has a powerful 305 5 liter V8, that really puts out. Another great performance feature i like is the 4 10'' disk brakes that have helped in many situations that called for heavy braking. The handling is interesting in that the power steering is amazing but the car handles a bit like a boat, but can still react when u need it. So far i have owned the car for close to 10000 miles and i have only needed to replace one blown fuse and fixed a rivet that snapped on the accelerator. This car has a very smooth quiet ride and the suspension it has makes it feel as if you are riding on a cloud. The appearance on the exterior tells a story of power and elegance, that is very pleasing to any eye. Other than some rust spots it is a very good looking car. The interior apperance is good although and the seats are possibly as comfortable as a lazyboy. The sound system was good and was made even better when i replaced it with a more modern system. The gas mileage on this car is amazing for the engine size. It gets 26 highway and 20 city. This is a very fun car to drive and would reccomend it to anyone who is looking for an older car that has some serious power and looks to match.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, Gas Mileage(somehow got 26 highway!?), The Cloudlike ride, Looks

Cons: Front Seats need buckets, and some firming up of the suspension would do wonders for hard cornering.
