    Roach III is gone

    Our boy showed off Roach III to some friends of ours. They made an offer on it we could not refuse and so now it is gone.

    The new owner plans on giving it a complete repaint and lots of love. We know it went to a good home.

    The big question now; what do we replace it with. Originally she was wanting a used Cadillac CTS or STS however the gas mileage on those cars is pretty bad so . . . possible;
    1. Cobalt
    2. Next generation Equinox
    3. ???

    Well, presumably, it's what comes after Roach II.

    Roach III - 1994 Caprice 9c1 with LT1

    Those that have been around awhile probably remember the stories of Roach I (1992 Caprice 9c1) and II (1994 Caprice 9c1 with LT1).

    Roach I had more abuse than any vehicle could endure during it's 390k miles. Imagine things you would want to try on a car and chances are we did it to Roach I and/or II. Never once did we replace any major parts or did the cars let us down. They just sucked down alot of gas to move from point A to point B.
