My first RMW I had for 13 years it was the family car, probably the best car I have ever had. It was in good shape when I sold it. The RMW that I have now, I have had for 7 years. The Caprice wagon I have had for 3 years.

Well I still have my second wagon.  Have had it for 90K (now 222K miles) and 6 years 3 months.....but it's for sale lol

Shortly after purchase:


My daily driver is my 10th wagon (I'm up to number 12 now) which I have had for a year and half and it now has 256K miles (bought it with 228K from forum member).


Number 11 was the shortest I officially owned at a week (sold it to a forum member for the 350, it was in bad shape) and  number 12 I owned for about the drive home

(my son wanted upgrade from his first wagon (my number 3 car) which has been in the family for almost 6 years as well (103K, now 150K). Not sure what's happening with that one yet, probably sell as well, as parking is an issue around here. (currently 8 cars at the house and space for 6).

Number 3 at the top of her game (she's uglier now!)

My wagon I have had for about 6 years. Bought it with 89k and now has 270k+ She was just retired as a daily driver so the mileage shenanigans have slowed.

My Impala SS I bought in September of 1999 with 36k miles. Daily drove it for 2 years and now she has 82k on her. Not putting enough miles on her lately.

My dad had a 93 roadmaster wagon for well over 13 years when I was a kid the memories that were made and the good times spent between ages 10-23 in the wagon stories are endless and numerousit was the car that made me to love wagons I'm so excited to have a 93 roadmaster now hope to keep it for the very least 13 years if not way more. My wifes caprice we've had about 5 months and we hope to have it forever.

Had the 92 for 17 years.

I didn't really realize how long I had owned it until one day we ran into old friends miles from home. Their 18 yr old daughter recognized me by the car I had owned from her earliest memories.

Wow! The record; 17 years!
I drive my Caprice all year round.

In the winter:






On vacation. Here I was in Cannes, France.


Here we were on holiday in Sweden:



And here high in the Alpes in Switserland on a 2500 mile trip to Italy:



This little guy is now 13 years old.


The best way to keep the wagons in good shape is to keep them running.Very Happy

Had my wagon only 2 years next week. But given my track record it'll be around awhile. Had my Monte Carlo 25 years and my truck for 13 years. The wagon has become a father/son project. He's learning more than I'm teaching somehow.

I bought my 96 Buick Roadmaster wagon approx. 5 years ago. It has taken my wife,my 4 cats
and me up to our house in Maine (635 miles each way) 4 times without any problems,well one time
we broke a tail pipe hanger while in transit,but I temporarly fixed it with some coat hanger wire
and then replaced it once we got there. I will try to send a picture of it once I get photobucket straightened out,in the meantime the wagon is dark green with woodgrain delete. ed

I've been with Ms. Roadie for the past three years now.

Should I feel bad because I keep eyeballing her younger sister (1995 RMW) that's for sale around town? Okay I haven't been just eyeballing her.Shocked  Sometimes I think about all her curves and what a sweet ride she can give. That sexy sound she makes when she's purring, just whispering those sweet nothings in your ear: "Are you comfortable baby? I can't wait for you to stomp on it and make be scream." All that power she has shaking that big-ole backside down the road  hhmmmm. mmmmmmh. Wink

DGGM (Dark Green Gray Metallic) is the color, but the code is not 18U. the correct code is WA9795

The first part of the paint code is a refrence to an RPO code Like 18U or 18L. The U stands for upper color and L stands for Lower color. This is if you have a two tone paint job. The WA9795 is the refrence number to the color. It will be show Like L9795 or U9795.

My 91 Roadmaster wagon I bought in 1997,local 1 owner car with 70 K on it then (Now 159K ) The Jade green 95 RMW I got from a friend of mine in 2000, by taking over the car payments . It had 90 K on it then,153 K now, My 96 white RMW limited was purchased out in the north fork of Long Island from some aging snowbirds who never used the car in the winter,in 2012,with 125K. It has about 126k on it now. The contest winner has to be my 92 Roadmaster limited sedan I bought new in July of 1991. One of one,Special Ordered from Ed Mertz himself. The car has two thousand five hundred miles on it !

I've been driving my 84 caprice wagon for 12 years she currently has 307,457 miles and still going strong and still wears her original paint. before that she was my moms/the family car and she drove it for 5 years but she also had a 93 roady wagon a 95 caprice along side the 84, now she currently drives a 93 roady wagon and dad has a 89 caprice wagon[307 olds motor sigh] with the fake wood along the side's.
This wagon was my second car after I was forced to get rid of my first car a 1975 caddy coupe deville that was given to me from mom on my 17th b-day.
I drove that caddy for 9 years and got the mileage up to 243,000 thousand dam i miss that car
