1987 Chevrolet Caprice Classic 5.0L 305 from North America
An 80's power ballad of a car!
Starter needed replacing.
Headliner has started to sag.
A/C needed to be recharged.
Cruise control stopped working, needed servo.
New distributor coil.
Just usual maintenance.
It's just an excellent car, it's reliable, easy to repair and looks good; the clean styling can't be beat.
It's classy without looking stodgy and old-man-like, it's "with it" for the time it was built
Everyone seems to like the car, I get an occasional offer to sell.
Handles well for it's size.
The 305 V8 is has decent power, yet gets surprisingly good fuel economy.
I never had a Caprice before and never realized how good a car this is until I've owned one, Chevrolet really outdid themselves with this car!
Very well optioned, all options still work like new.
With regular maintenance this car could last for a long time.
This really has to be the best car built in the 1980's.
Hope it'll last another ten years (I bet it will)!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
