Put Your Caprice in the Chevrolet Forum Spotlight!

1979 Chevrolet Caprice

Recently resurrected Chevrolet Forum thread is ready to accept your finest examples of Chevy’s big-bodied Caprice.

Have you visited our ChevroletForum community yet? We have plenty of places in our forums to do everything from meet new members and buy and sell in the classifieds, to showing off your fine Chevys and figuring out how to keep them in running shape.

Among those threads is one devoted to the big B-body known as the Caprice. The thread recently came back to life, so we thought we’d share what’s been posted over the past nine years.

For example, the 1979 Caprice above, owned by CapriceClassic. The coupe packs a 350 TPI from a mid-Eighties Corvette backed by a TH700-R4, and looks great next to the retired Royal Danish Air Force F-104 Starfighter.

1996 Chevrolet Caprice

The Caprice thread was started by member cudablack2004 in the early morning hours of April 9, 2010, who felt the Caprice didn’t get as much attention as Silverados and Camaros did. The first Caprice, though, would come on April 12, via this 1996 example owned by 1stCaprice. He had bought this blue highway bomber a couple of weeks before the thread was born, and swapped out the wire hubcaps for the chrome center hubs found on police models.

1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Wagon

Caprice wagons are also welcome to the thread, like this big red 1995 wagon from Louise the Wagon. The owner picked it up from their grandfather, who was the wagon’s first owner, and planned to overhaul the LT1 and give a new coat of paint.

1988 Chevrolet Caprice

Here’s a clean 1988 Caprice Classic from Free Safety, looking amazing in black with all of the chrome trim polished to mirror-like perfection.

1991 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

And of course, we have a meaner example of the same style, as seen with 91Caprice’s 1991 Caprice Classic, rocking a set of gray steelies with chrome caps and trim, wrapped in white-letter rubber.

Chevrolet Caprice Trio

Finally, we have our most recent posting, a trio of late Seventies and early Eighties Caprices from CapriceHef posted on April 5, 2019.

Do you have a Caprice? Why not post it on the thread? There’s nine pages devoted to the big beauty so far, with plenty of room to add more.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
