Put Your Caprice in the Chevrolet Forum Spotlight!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
