My baby, Christine. 1989 Caprice Classic, 55800 original miles, restored by myself. Picking up a 1986 Caprice Wagon tomorrow for my winter car. whooa yeah. I've never been more happy with a car. I baby this car, and she gets me out of the shit storm when in need. I had a 2002 3.8 Impala 9c1 undercover police car which I sold and used the money for this. I've never been more happy. It may not be the most fast car in the world, but when you ride in a boat like this, you don't care about speed, or gas mileage. Rear wheel drive 5.0lt, 305 V8. 170hp 255lbs of tourqe Cat Delete running into a glass pack Restored wheels with dog dish caps wrapped in tiger paw all season white walls Restored headliner 50w halogen fogs Restored Headliner They didnt make very many of the white with blue pin stripe and vinyl top, especially rare since it is NOT a brougham.

[QUOTE=~Conquer~;32385422]That is a sexy ass car mang[/QUOTE] thanks :) shes my pride and joy
You need to get some dual exhaust man, and some nice engine mods. :v:
[QUOTE=Siminov;32385951]You need to get some dual exhaust man, and some nice engine mods. :v:[/QUOTE] I got a quote to do dual cat back running into flowmaster 40's with squared off 7-8 inch wide 2 inch tall tips, and it was wayy to much. I can't do much welding myself and for this car it wasnt set for duals, so..it would be a lot of customer work. I was going to drop in a 350 and some new headers and tubro tranny, but its my daily driver and the engine is sooo young in terms of use, so I'm waiting until it shits the bed. Just for now at least, I'm still in highschool, so I don't make bundles of money. Doesnt sound to bad for a lil 305 [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70hd_gBs6C8&feature=channel_video_title[/url] The camera doesnt do it justice, and the muffler wasn't fully broken in then, now its almost twice as loud and makes the back firing 'popping' noise when you hit and let off high rpms
[QUOTE=Dylan_94;32384039]I wish i could have a clean crx. Go back in time and buy one.[/QUOTE] Back in time? Tons of clean ones still around. That Si I have/had (I'm trading it atm) had some quarter panel rust in the back, otherwise wasn't too bad. I see tons of clean CRXs go for ~1500-2000 all the time.
Finished sealing up my carbon fiber targa top. Yay, no more wet-lap after it rains when I brake! :D [img]http://www.furstatic.com/lobo/supra/CFTarga.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.furstatic.com/lobo/supra/TargaWeave.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.furstatic.com/lobo/supra/SupraCFTargaBack.jpg[/img]

I guess it's designed for smoothness rather than performance, but still.
[QUOTE=Strike 86;32420149]Gorgeous looking car dude, but seriously, how is it even possible to get such pedestrian power from a 5L engine? I guess it's designed for smoothness rather than performance, but still.[/QUOTE] Well, I'm not going to lie, it's not the most powerful car. She does move out though, don't get me wrong. After I modded up the exhaust (getting rid of the cat did so much) throttle response, not to mention power was greatly increased. I just drive around real slow so people can look at my car and be envious :rock: i don't need to be driving real fast, although I have gotten her to break 100. Also, maybe after I am finished up with college, I plan to still have her, if thats the case I am partial to a small LS1 Swap ;) ohh baby

That picture reminds me, maybe this weekend, me and a few friends are going to go to our other friends house at night and put a 4x4 chrome badge along with shit like Powered by Ford and V8 power on his 99 Honda Civic with a 1.6 liter :v: [editline]22nd September 2011[/editline] He's gonna flip, it'll be awesome

Great paintjob :v:

Car ist vurry guut!). I drove it for a year -- great starting car, I might add -- and eventually sold it to some Aboriginal ("Native") chick for what I paid for it. The Tempest sure was fun in -40'C weather... no traction control, no anti-lock brakes... awww yeah. A real road warrior special! B)

And I mean no offence by this but how the hell could they only get 170BHP from 5 litres, that's about 35bhp per litre.... I'd have thought an untuned, normal, every day car put out about 50-60bhp per litre.
Mega Super Cool New Old Car..... with TURBO! [img]https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-UXGKpa6OaJQ/TnvdC040XeI/AAAAAAAAAU0/2xTGOTx8JOc/s912/IMAG0132.jpg[/img]

I was trying to get one as my winter stallion, but no luck here in Pennsylvania, plus I am getting a good deal one a little gas saving 91' sunbird. I was supposed to get a Caprice Wagon like I said in my post...Yeah, the guy 'forgot' to tell me how rusted and 'didn't know' about the bad transmission linkage it was after I drove 2 hours to go buy it. But I was only kidding about it being a 1989, it really is just a huge underpowered engine, but it's good enough to lay some tire or get up quickly if you need to plow through a yellow light, at least mine is now with freeing it up with exhaust mods, before that..Yeah not so much.

That car felt really, really underpowered and drank fuel. averaging something like 18MPG. The automatic gearbox only had 4 Gears so you were revving the balls off it to move anywhere. Built like a tank, heavy as hell.
Sounds like my 240 :v: I love my volvos
