I picked up a 1988 9C1 Caprice in 2000 at a Shiriff action for $600. I painted it flat black with flames and drove it every day till 2008. That's when the Ohio weather got the better of it. The floorpan and the frame were really getting rusty.I found a nere mint 1990 Caprice from a little old lady that bought it new. It had just 56k miles.I got it for $2500 and transplanted all the 9C1 stuff(motor,trany,rear,brakes and suspention). The car was rust free but had it's share of dings and scrathes so my buddy painted it in his garage one weekend giving it the SS stipes.This is my every day driver winter and all,I'm trying my best to not let the Ohio rust get the better of this one.
