I've been lurking for a bit since discovering these big wagons a couple weeks ago. I started running out of room for transporting amplifiers and speakers in my TDI Jetta sedan, and started looking at SUV's. Mileage was aweful, but it was a good bit of room. Then I discovered the LT1 wagons and the hunt was on! Initially I looked at 94-96 roadmasters, but all were above my price point for "meh" quality. Then up in Daytona I found a good deal on what looks like a well kept 1994 Caprice Classic Wagon. In dark green gray metallic, it's only real option, the 5.7LT1. Raced up to daytona with a trailer to seal the deal, and it didn't fit on the trailer! Too wide Shocked ! So I got to drive it home with expired plates ! Luckily the troopers were all busy with other matters Smile



Now she's home, done a big tuneup, and she'll hopefully be my daily for a good while to come! I'm sure I'll start bugging you guys soon for advice fixing something soon enough Very Happy More pictures to come, some body/paintwork to do on the tailgate and passenger front door where something tried to take the mirror off forcibly Sad

Welcome aboard! Actually the LT1 is standard in all 94-96 wagons. Only engine avail (sedans got 4.3s)

where in S FL are you? I'm in Delray and there are a few of us around S FL.....

looks like a nice one, hope to see it soon Smile

Thanks! I'm living in west Hollywood currently. I thought there were a couple 4.3 wagons running around out there? No biggie, just glad I got the right engine.

Sharp color combo, grey interior would complete the look!?

Being a FL car I am sure it is clean!
