    Caprice Classics

    Personally, I don't miss em. That said, they beat the crap out of the Impala's

      I miss them. My partner and I were forced to give up ours last year for a cv. The caprice handled better, faster, and had more room.

        Chevys were better than the Crown Vics. Nothing like having a corvette engine in your hoopty

            I had a 92 Chevy Caprice and a 95 Chevy Caprice with Police interceptors for personal vehicles and I loved them to death. Especially considering it had the heavy duty police package. My 92 got up to no lie 390,000 before completely dying. i know it sounds hard to beleive but its possible with good maintenace and giving the baby TLC

              WOW!!! Man, do I miss the speed. It was so deceptively fast. The crown vics are like tow trucks compared to the Chevys. My first one was a 1994 Chev with 70000 miles on it. I had it for almost 2 years. The biggest drawback on those cars were that they overheated alot.

                i currently have a 1984 Caprice Classic, as my POV... very nice car, brown with brown interior... good shape, and just put in a brand new 350 crate into her in oct of 05

                  I loved my Caprice. I miss my Caprice. They were spectacularly fast...scary fast, in fact. The only thing was how they felt when you topped 100...they had a very "floaty" feel, like being in a speedboat skimming on top of the waves.

                  It was the first real police car I drove, and it will always be my first love.

                    My last Caprice had 110k when I turned it in and I never had one problem with it. Been in a CV's Since 96 and they are always sending a recall or going in the shop for something. I kind of wonder if the guys on the assembly line hate cops and give us a POS on purpose.....

                      1996 Caprice, best of the best for pursuits! We had a few that had been refurbished with excellent suspensions that were just kick a**! When the suspensions got old, they had a tendency to wallow like the Queen Mary though.

                      The first generations of the "Shamu" body style ('91-'93)had raised MDT holders that were great for working one deputy car. You could work the box and drive at the same time. I mean, if that weren't against policy you could....

                        1995 Caprice LT-1 all black, I loved that car. Trans. rebuild at 98k and NO other problems. Fast, handled good, stopped good and very predictable. Anyone ever heard of wheel balance problems with them? During hard driving with good tires it was possible to slip the tire on the rim and cause your balance to change. I know, thats what I thought, but thats what the wrench turners told me.

                          390,000?? Where did you find the time to drive all those miles on your POV? Must not have had a take home.

                            There is a guy in Northern VA who owns/leases his own car as a taxicab, a 1995 Chevy Caprice. It is a former police vehicle and still has the spotlight attached!

                            He claims that it has more than 350,000 miles on the car and that it still has the ORIGINAL 350 V8, but that the transmission has had "lots of work" done to it since he purchased it at a state auction. I spoke to him at a gas station when I was filling up my truck.

                            I don't know how it runs, but it squeaked like a big dog. I reckon the suspension bushings are shot, but the car still looked surprisingly nice. It had an aftermarket silver paint job.

                              I currently own a late 80's model chevy caprice TANK with big 350. Couldn't stand not being around them.
