    In 1991, The Caprice Wagon Fought the Crossovers of its Day

    RWD w/ a 3.6 base, optional LT1/4/5, pretty freaking well. I'd hit it. Only thing is that I'd change the Chevy's name to Chevelle and Nomad (Wagon). Impala is too damaged a nameplate to go on a prestige product.

    If Dodge can get by damn good w/ a 4 door named Charger, there's no reason GM shouldn't fare just as well w/ a 4 door Chevelle...You'd just have to deal with the one "smartass" on every facebook ad comment section saying that "no real Chevelle has 4 doors"

    Had a total of four Roadmaster wagons!! Quiet, comfortable, peppy, lots of room and decent gas mileage. Other than the soggy steering, what is there not to like!?

    It probably had the old REAL tilt wheel that used to be able to drop down practically in your lap that so many loved, including myself.
