Hello everybody.
I am the proud owner of an '88 Chevy Caprice Wagon!
I'm guessing most of you won't like my ride, but I love it.
Picked this thing up from a buddy of mine about 2 years ago with the intention of using it for the wastelands in the desert.
Just recently moved up to Oregon and figured I'd check this site out to try and get some info on removing all the gross smog crap under the hood to try and free up some power because this this in slooooow with the stock 307.
Lemme know what you think Very Happy

Whatever you do, dont click the pic of the car on the page the image here links to, thinking you'll get a larger image... unless you like malware, I guess, then go right ahead.

I have no clue what you're talking about. I just uploaded a picture using the "host image" feature on the menu for comments.

Anyways, if anybody is interested I have an entire album of my build thus far on my facebook account.
You can see all the pictures of the different crap I've done and how the car started.

That's awesome man! I love what you did to it! that front bumper instantly made me think of Boarderlands!Wink What tires/size are those? They look nasty! I need some of those meats for the winters over here! I started slowly turning my woody into a sorta similar Apocalyptic wagon! I had bigger truck tires on her for a while and was going to lift her. However after 35k miles in a year of traveling I Got a lil' tired of 17-20mpg highway;) went back to stock size for now(20-23+). I was changing lanes and shooting for more of a battle/highway cruiser, but after seeing your wagon, man IDK now?Wink

Ok, Anyway looks good- Cheers!

The fronts are stock size 225 x 75 x 15 all terrains and the rears are 31 x 10.5 x 15 offroad tires.
The back end I installed some air shocks to give it some lift to fit everything better as well.

I'd love to see what you've done with your woody sometime.
