Hello everyone, my name is david, I'm in my early 20's and I just bought one of my dream cars!

I have just bought my first 1995 Caprice wagon last Tuesday for (what I believe to be) a pretty good deal, $1500, and I'm already in love! It still needs a very deep cleaning but otherwise looks pretty good for a 133k miles 21 year old midwest vehicle. There is some rust on the rockers between the doors but otherwise looks pretty clean. It has the factory towing package and everything on the car works with exception to the rear windows, those need new window tracks. And here are some photos!














My plan is to turn this old girl into a potent highway cruiser and do my best to repair the rust thats started. And I'm sure I'll need some help and advice from the knowledgeable people on this forum. I look forward to hearing from you all!

Looks like a good foundation, I like that it doesn't have the rear defog, not common on a midwestern car.

Wow, I didn't even realize that it didn't have a rear defogger. There's still allot I have to learn about these amazing vehicles. I do want to learn the ins and out of my particular wagon and make it a cool cruiser
