PostSubject: My '96 Caprice B4U   Wed May 28, 2014 11:28 am


So, we have had some car shake ups here at home the last few weeks....and here is where the dust settled.

Cara (finally) sold her Civic and is in a "new" 2006 Outback. So my wife is a longroofer Smile





I swapped out my Caprice wagon for a club member's Caprice Sedan. I hope he gets on here (I know he is a lurker). He had been wanting a wagon for sometime and really liked mine. I had admired his Sedan since I met him and things just worked out. I did keep my OZ wheels though. Both cars had basically the same mileage (but his has some nice mods). Here is a shot a couple years ago when we met at a club cruise. Jade parked next to his Sedan...




He has already poured a lot of time and money into the red wagon in the short amount of time he has had it...and a new paintjob is coming soon I hear. Like I said, I hope he joins the forum soon.




As he drove away...




__________________________

I added some billet door pulls and my usual dash mat (this time I ordered the CoverKing one....it fit much better than the cheap eBay one I bought for the red wagon)

Oh, I fixed the sequential rear lights too. That is a pretty cool feature. You can see some pics of the car HERE

This is my first ever Caprice Sedan. I really like the SS's, but would never want to pay the $$ for one. I think this is about as close as I'll ever get!

I thought you had to have the red wagon to haul around your cello?  Oh Oh, sorry, that was what you told Cara.

Glad your happy, but to me the rims seem to suite the wagon better.

Stuff fits in the trunk....without the spare in it.

We have an Outback too. So...whatever.

I kinda agree with you Jarrod...I'd put them on Jade and move the others to this Sedan except, I 'painted' myself into a corner with those wheels.

lol... lol!

Don't put that Subie on a dyno (he-he Crovo)... That Subie is a lot sharper than a Civic for sure!

Hate to see the red wagon go, but the sedan is sharp! Post some interior pics when you can.

I think the white Caprice needs some Impala SS tail lights, rather than the early TBI-style Caprice ones. Is that on the list??

I do like that car!

Ha! It is on the list. I snagged a set during my last PaP run a couple weeks ago. :-)

I know the TBI lights are the "cool" mod...but I really like the 93-96 tails better.

I like the newer ones better too.

Just an idea, I saw one at a car show with the trim that surrounds the light (chrome on Caprice/black on Impala) painted body-color. I thought it looked pretty good, was a white car as well. Might try that.

Keep the pics coming!

Oh! I like that....I was going to paint the chrome surround black...but I have a can of the white!

You don't happen to have a pic stashed away, do you?
