1987 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Brougham 5.0 305 from North America
A show stopper that can hit trees
Everything was original except the tires when we purchased the car in 2001. Little bits of rust, barely visible. This car had been in many accidents and most of the money spent on this car was to repair the body. Fortunately when ever it was in an accident, the body would slowly be restored to its original show room condition.
This car is so nice that all the caprice owners and many Ford guys too, want to know more about the car and want to buy it from me.
One Caprice owner in Minnesota liked the car so much he stole the chrome pieces on the base of the doors and the rear lights. Parts were replaced with sparkling new ones and the thief is probably roting away in Never Land Ranch.
On January 29th, 2005. The unthinkable happened. Going down an icey road, I lost control at 55 Mph and ran head on into a tree stump, which was blocking a real tree. I was so lucky to be alive. The car was not too lucky, as it was obliberated. I miss the car. Of many caprices on the road, this one was a show car. Now it is dead at 94,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
