I could have sworn I did this. I drive a 94 Chevrolet Caprice, ex police car 9c1 model. Equipped with a 383 stroker that me and a friend built.

Hey Brandon, I used to own a 96 Impala SS (basically, a 9c1 as well) also in the same color as yours - Black Cherry. I put a lot of comfortable miles on that car!

Your Caprice looks great!

Thanks! I bought this car in 2014 when I was still in high school, for $500, in a non working condition. I got the original motor running, and drove it for 4-5 years before swapping the motor. I love this car. I bought it with 134,000 miles. It now has over 200,000 miles. Still starts every time.

ONE OF THESE DAYS, I NEED to get a digicam, figger out how to work the damthing, & bestow upon you guys the pics of my '67 Lincoln Pervertable... Wish the top still worked.. THAT was almost as impressive as having a gaggle of working CT-100s. Thing has 3 hydraulic pumps, 15 little motors, 25 relays. It pretty much took itself apart, & then put itself back together for the top to go up & down. The rear doors, when you opened them up, there was an interference fit w/the top- the rear glass slid down about 6" & then rose back up. In 1983, the guy who worked on it for me told me that to build a car to the Lincoln's specs would l,ikely cost close to $40K then.

Man, sweet '78 98.

The grandmother of a girl from my old building... ages ago now... had a 1979 Delta 88, light green inside and out. I was in it once for a trip to a public pool. Also, someone in that building had a red '83 Delta 88 with a brown vinyl covered roof. Both were 4-door. Come to think of it, someone else had a dark blue 2-door 98 at one time, one of at least three cars he had while he lived there. I don't know the year of that one but it was a full-size RWD model.

IMG_8358[1].jpgSince high-test is $2.50 again , the 1969 Grand Prix with its 455 4 barrel Q-jet has logged more than the usual 500 miles this year. Getting the AM-FM Delco out of this beast with its wrap-around console is a magic trick. It needs a re-cap of the caps I didn't do that last time.
