I had a 1986 caprice classic and sold to buy a lumina, the worst mistake I have ever made. Now I'm looking for another caprice. I miss my old one so bad.

I own a 1986 Chevy Caprice Classic Brougham. This has been the greatest car we've ever owned. Right now it has 173,821 original miles and still runs and drives excellent. The paint is the only problem the car has. I plan to repaint it this summer and also add dual exhaust.

I own a 1984 Caprice Classic. Its my first car and I'm proud to say it has 163,000 miles on it. The only thing I've had to replace is spark plugs and the choke solenoid. I'm hoping on repainting it this summer and getting new exhaust for it.

I just bought my first Caprice, It's a 1986 brougham It has 306,000 km. So far I absalutely love this car, hard to imagine
I only paid $500.00 for this car, even the a.c. still works.I also have a 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport, but now I prefer to take the Caprice instead, where ever I go. I also find myself making excuses just to go out some where so I can drive it.

I feel very bad because I sold my '86 Classic. My life will never be the same. Folks, it was either that or my '70 Chevy
C/20 Pickup. The truck has been in the family longer OK. There is nothing that comes close in this world to driving a Caprice through the back country of San Diego. How dare a Monster Truck crush one.

I own a 1986 Chevy Capric Classic Brougham with 173,000 miles. Just change the hoses and belts last year. The only major thing that has gone wrong is that I replace the rear end this year - not bad for a 14 year old car. The worst thing the car company could have done was take the Chevy Caprice off the market. I'm keeping mine until one of us falls (it'll probably be me)

I turned sixteen last year, and I have been driving my 1986 Caprice Classic since then. It has over 171,000 miles, and with regular maintenance, but quite a bit of abuse, it has never let me down. In my opinion, is was one of the best cars that General Motors ever made. I originally wanted an old Volvo or a Toyota, but in the midst of 9/11, etc., I am very proud to be driving an American classic. I am sure that this car will provide many more miles of enjoyment and reliability during my high school years. I appreciate this great car very much.

I own a 1984 Chevy Caprice Classic 2-door, and I love the car to death. It is my first car and I'm not going to give it up for anything. If the car needs anything it is a engine rebuild and a little cleaning up. I love the car because it only has 89,000 miles for an 84 and that isn't bad. And when I bought the car for $900, it had 84,000 miles. And I have only had the car for about a year now.

I received my 86 Caprice from my grandmother with a bad motor, but after I put in the new one I haven't had any trouble since.

I just bought a 1986 Caprice 4DR. It is my first Caprice I have ever owned. I used to own a 1964 Impala SS, but I sold it. BIG MISTAKE. Ever since then I have wanted a "boat" again and finally I have one. This Caprice has a bad transmission. It is the third transmission that this car has had, according to the person who sold it to me. I am wondering if maybe the transmissions in these Caprice's are all bad. Can anyone shed any light on this? I really love this car and want to restore it (it was a former police interceptor) but if it is going to be nothing but transmission troubles, I may just get rid of it.

I have two Chevrolet Caprice Classic cars. One is a 1985, 6 cylinder fuel injection 4.3 liters with less than 51,000 original miles. The other one is a 1986, 8 cylinder 305 engine with a 4 barrel carburetor and 152,000 miles. Both cars are 4 doors. The '86 is like an automotive bulldozer. I've hit a deer, smashed into a wooden fence, and backed into a cement post. The damage was minimal. I even used it to pull my brother's cars out of a snow bank. Neither one uses a lot of oil and the engines don't knock. Soon, I will be a 59 years old woman who will keep both of these cars as long as I can.

I have a platinum gray 86 Chevy Caprice and is one of the cleanest ones in town right now. I purchased it from an old couple who kept it under a garage and the car only had 39,000 miles on it. I paid $2500 for the car, but it was worth every penny. Everything about the car is original from the motor, to the interior, jack and spare in the trunk, perfect clear coat paint, to the hub caps. The hub caps actually had the 1986 stickers on the back when I took them off. So far I have put about 30,000 miles on the car, but still under 70,000 miles on it and still rolling. People have offered up to $4000 for it, but its not for sale. Just waiting for the antique tag baby!!!

I have 3 Caprice Classics 86'-88'. The first was totaled in front of my house by a speeder (parts car 88'). The second was stolen put recovered (86',now driving). The third has an oil burning problem (87',which a looked on line and can be fixed easily, only has 67k on it, but, was kept very poorly).
I Love these cars. My favorite is the 86'. The parts are soooo inexpensive and very easy to find considering that chevy made 100 billion :-). I recommend this car to anyone. I work on it myself, because it's so easy to work on, and a mechanic rarely touches these cars. They have never left me or my wife stranded EVER. Also when something is about to go it gives ample warning. Some day I will fully restore them.

I own a 1989 Chevy Caprice Classic Bro this car will not die I have driven this car for about 2 years hard and it just takes it. Never had to do any major repairs. When this one dies I am getting another one! I will only drive a Chevy product!

I am currently driving a 1987 Chevy Caprice Classic. It was originally my mom's car. (She bought it after her 1986 Caprice was wrecked in a hit and run accident) The Beast as my friends call it is my first car. It's fairly reliable. It's also nice and big so I deem it 'safer' than some of the small cars on the road today. My Caprice has over 90000 miles on it and the other one is over 160000. The only major repair to either was the body work when the first on was hit, and also a new transmission 6 years ago. I think Chevy needs to bring back the Caprices.

My name is Joe and I own an '84 Caprice Classic sedan. It is the best car ever! It's an old cruiser so you can bet the thing cruises! It has under a hundred thousand miles and runs like new, hands down the greatest car I ever owned.
