My 94 Caprice

I have owned this car for 14 years now. Ex police car, used to be white.. Used to have a 265 L99 engine (baby LT1), now it's a 383 LT1 (bored and stroked).

I have however replaced the instrument cluster with a Camaro Z28 cluster, as I prefer it over the stock digital one.

I'm surprised the cluster fit so well. It does have more flair to it than the plain cop car one, even though I do like those old vacuum fluorescent displays.

Bringing back fond memories. I had the 94 Roadmaster with 350 LT-1
& it was a ball to drive especially at toll booths & stop lights !
Surprised a 9C1 came with the smaller engine. I thought they all
used the 350 from 94 till the end ( Chev, Buick, Olds & Caddy).....
BTW if you go to the track we would love to see the times.

I don't have the paper anymore, but 8 years ago it was a 12 second car. I do have a dyno I can share however: https://scontent.ftpa1-2.fna.fbcdn.n...ef&oe=5C7DDD35

(Maybe I could have done better at a track, but I was certainly nervous and never did it again since it became a daily driver).

Not surprising folks would think it's still a cop car what with the extra antennas. Perhaps you should add spotlights to complete the illusion.

I have seen a white Crown Vic around here quite a few times, obviously a former cop car considering the lack of rub strips on the front doors, black steelies and of course, spotlights.

There's a guy here that has a black and white IIRC 2000s crown Victoria with a vanity plate that reads NOT FUZZ...
