Shopping for a second car in 2000 I
started on Edmunds.com and selected a
couple high-value models (good ratings
and low price). Then I went to eBay and
started bidding - won a '96 Caprice.
Fresh out of service with the Saginaw
MI PD it has the LT1 and heavy duty
everything. Got it with 75,000 on the
clock. So far I've put a new A/C unit,
replaced two front suspension
components and put on new Michelins. It
uses no oil and has had zero drivetrain
issues. Now at 120,000 miles.
Dual spotlights and police wheels means
never being a victim of road rage but
other cars, afraid to pass, do tend to
bunch up behind you and in your blind
Rubber floors should be an option on
all sedans. I fear no spills.
