Hello,
I always wanted to have a Caprice Wagon and few days ago my friend wanted to sell his car - that was it.
Now I own european version, not so pretty as "original" but sitll awesome. I believe it's the only euro caprice in Poland.

I have to do few things like brakes - front almost doesn't work, some small leaks and inside of the trunk.





Some photos from last year (previous owner)

Glad to see you made it, Marcin! We have a few other Europeans, you will see "Dutch Pete" and Chakotay (I believe he is from Swedan) hanging around, as well as a few others.

Welcome MarcinV8,

You will have better luck on this forum with the help, and parts you need. My forum name on the Impala SS forum is mlawrenz, I posted the pic of my rusted rear fender/seat belt mount for you over there a few days ago.

I'm liking the wheels! You must great some great looks on peoples faces when the see your wagon. No doubt, a VERY unusual vehicle in Poland.


A warm hearted welcome to the forum from the U.S.A.

Dave.

Nice looking car!! I like the wheels and color. Is the interior grey? I assume it is a 1991-93. Are those mirrors stock or what are they from?

Welcome to the forum. I've never seen the European version and it's interesting, with the fog light on top of the license plate.
Very nice car. Any problems getting the right petrol? (the right grade, that is)

Cool pics. What's the story with the door mirrors? If I missed the answer somewhere else, sorry in advance. Are those for export or were they added.

Car looks mean!

This is the first thing everyone asks "-and the mirrors you took from?". No, they are stock. I know, they are unbelievable ugly, but they are "european version". I will replace mirrors with the original ones. I don't understand why GM engineers did this, maybe the car was too pretty. I understand the headlights issue, but what is wrong with the mirrors.
