At no point does OCD car redesigner Jonathan Ward of ICON ever explicitly say how much it cost to turn a clapped out (first) Clinton-era Miami Dade PD Chevy Caprice into what you see above. It’s almost certainly six figures and most definitely worth it. Is it ICON’s best car? Yes, yes it is.
Welcome to Paper Jam, the feature where we highlight the best automotive advertisements from the past! Print might be nearly dead, but our scanners are just getting warmed up.
Chevy's now-resurrected rear-drive full sizer has gone through many iterations. Which one is your favorite?
Yes, yes, there are many ideal cars for winter driving. Cars with ground clearance. Cars with four driven wheels. Cars with studded tires. But maybe all you need is a rear-drive old Caprice.
These days any full-size body-on-frame Chevy sedan is seen as a donk, box, or bubble waiting to happen. But what is one of these cars like outside of the world of candy paint and chrome thuddies?
Before many collector vehicles were collector vehicles, they were just used cars. Besides obviously rare and exotic cars chances are there was a time when someone thought the collector car of your dreams was just a cheap old car. With this in mind we want to examine the cars that are currently just old cars but will…
The Caprice has a lot more engine power than its Crown Victoria rival, but the LT1's reliability hasn't been quite as good as the Modular 4.6's on the LeMons track. Still, the Caprice handles pretty well and manages to look reasonably nimble out there.
Even as The General placed a huge bet on the obsolete-from-the-start Chevette, he also hedged his bets with the good ol' full-sized Caprice. What better way to celebrate the bigger, bulkier Caprice than with song?
With the launch of the new Chevy Caprice, GM continues their long history of producing cars for law enforcement. Grow out your mustache and put on ridiculously dark shades as we PIT-maneuver through the half-century history of Chevy police cars.
In honor of the return of the Chevy Caprice police car, and because it's one of the most ubiquitous film cop cars of the 1980s and 1990s, we've put together the ten best criminal-chasing, car-smashing Caprice police movie cars below.
Today's return of the Chevy Caprice to the police car ranks means more than just serious hoonage potential. With a new optional technology package, we're told it'll be the most high-tech production police car ever.
We revealed the new Chevy Caprice police car late last night to bravos for the car, but lukewarm reaction to styling. GM's responded with shots of the Corvette-powered, RWD Aussie-built law enforcement-only Chevy Caprice police car wearing its dress blacks.
After a 15-year absence patrolling U.S. streets, an all-new law-enforcement-only Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle (PPV) joins GM's fleet in 2011. Although it's built on the same rear-wheel-drive Camaro and dearly-departed Pontiac G8-spawning Zeta platform, it's not a G8 sedan.
When we drove from Manhattan to Detroit's Woodward Dream Cruise, it got us thinking about the Holy Grail of American road trips: all the way across the country. It has to be done, but behind the wheel of what?
Much to the frustration of G8 fans, when GM Marketing Chief Bob Lutz said the Pontiac G8 will become the Chevy Caprice he might have meant a Caprice only for police work. What's happening?
Now that I've sorted out all the SCSI termination headaches on my 1998-vintage slide scanner, I've digitized some more of my old 35mm negatives. Here's a trio of old cars I shot in 1989.
