    darndot's 92 Caprice Wagon (New Photo 10/19/09)

    I bought a 92 Caprice Wagon.


    It has a 5.7 V8 with 111,000 miles. A sewing machine repair man owned it, and passed away recently. My plans are to make it a daily driver/interstate cruiser. I am going to swap out the grill and rims, and make it a Impala SS Wagon.

    Future Mods: Radio, Tinted Windows, Impala Rims, Keyless Entry, Impala Grill. I think I will leave it blue, but it will need a paint job sometime.

    I am going to sell the Prizm. It had to much Toyota parts under the hood for me.

    Yeah, maybe..... But ... I'm not too keen on the bubble body style. I'd rather have one of the box bodies ... '89 or '90 Caprice with the 9C1 ... or, better yet, a '77-'79 Caprice .


    Darndot ... that car looks sweet! CONGRATULATIONS! I thought of you earlier today ... was looking through online ads and found a '94 (er, I think it was a '94) Caprice wagon with the Impala SS front end ... looked VERY good, btw .

    Rats. I just spent the afternoon taking out the radiator. Gald I found that one out the easy way, and not along side the road.

    Somebody has a quote on their signature. Chevy's run badly longer than most imports run at all.

    I am hoping the radiator shop can fix it instead of replacing the whole thing. I would like to spend the money on something else like rims.

    Why slice through the wind when you can just punch a hole in it?





    Congratulations on the wagon, darndot! Looks like a great find.

    Oh thats ok, my posting here tends to go in spurts.

    Several members of my family have gone there too. I ended up breaking from the pack though. I'll be on my last semester at SIU Carbondale in a couple weeks.
