    I'm excited to drive one. Everyone at work is talking about them already. Our CV's are nice but GM needs a come back I think. I think they look alright but its how they perform is what makes the difference. As long as the seats are comfortable then I'm content.

    I like Crown Vics alot but they really need more power. Even the brand new ones are anemic at best. All bark and no bite. They feel decent right off idle but they literally have no top end power. I dont know if its the 3:27 gearing or what but 120 and they're out of breath.

    I liked the old caprices so much that I bought a 94 LT1 9C1 and modded the crap out of it. I bought every bolt on they made and that car ran a 12.9 @ 101mph. Thats not bad for a stock LT1 small block, that weighed 4200lbs empty.

      You're right, they're both ugly as hell.

          I drive an 04 Impala right now that suits me fine. I like the CVPI for its durability. I would like to see how the new Caprice will hold up to hopping curbs and what not when getting around in urban areas.

            I'd like to have a '96 LT1 9C1 and keep it absolutely stock. If I had a choice of new vehicles, I would really like to try the E7 from Carbon Motors.

            Is it any surprise that cops don't trust anyone?

              I saw the new Caprice on Wednesday. It will definitely require molded fiberglass seats in the rear. I don't think there was enough room to sit in the backseat with the cage in place.

              I only looked at the Carbon Motors vehicle quickly because I would not consider recommending it before other agencies give it a successful try. I was surprised to see that it has suicide doors. I am not sure that is a good idea.

                I have read recently that the shifter will not be moved to the steering column.

                Fail.

                  In that case, Chevy can pack sand.

                      Yes, crash proven. As long as I am able to push this button if I get rear ended, then I should be just fine. Otherwise....

                        Here we go again with the "CV's catch fire too easily" crap. The only time you might need that button is because you are still alive after being rearended at highway speed where as in most other vehicles, you already be dead so it doesn't matter if the car is on fire.

                          Map? The only map I see is on sour toast and your happy gratitude gal. You'd think it's a trap, you'd think it tatters? True, the smell is glue?

Why don't you go tell that crap to my buddies family who lost their husband/father when he was burned alive after getting rear ended. Take your insensitive comments and shove 'em! You make me sick.
                            You honestly need to tone it down a bit. In every thread you are berating, cocky, disrespectful, and condescending to everyone who disagrees with you. Please leave the attitude at the door when you are posting in threads.

                              Well now, that wasn't a very nice thing for you to say?
