    My buddy Mike and my turbo Buicks at a show a few years back. Both are '87's. Mine's the white over claret 30K mile TurboT, and Mike's is the GN. Mike's lays down about 520 RWHP & does the 1/4 in 10.5.

    If I found a very nice 80-85 Seville Elegante for a very low price, I'd roll the dice and pick it up. But I wouldn't pay for it what I would a nice Fleetwood or Eldorado.

    I know there's quite the following for them here. I will say, though, that I have never had the opportunity to drive or ride in one, so my opinion is purely aesthetic.

    I like you Sting. But can you explain what exactly is aesthetically pleasing about a Caprice wagon?

    ...it's so big it can hide an uglier car completely behind it?

    So it can shield us from a Honda Crosstour. Ok, I'm with you.

    Function, yo. I actually use all of the space the wagon provides several times a year.

    And yes, I like the rounded styling. I didn't at first, but it's grown on me. Drop it, shave the doors/tailgate, add a nice Impala-inspired hood and I'm all over that. A little orange never hurts either:



    I'd be all over that.

    I am jealous of your sportsmanship.

    A friend of mine had a "boxy" Benz wagon from the '80's, it was a diesel and was probably the slowest car I have ever ridden in. It was so slow we had to post flag men on the freeway to clear a lane for it when we wanted to get on!

    We are not talking about a custom. I'd rock an impala SS wagon myself. We are talking about a regular Caprice wagon.

    I like caprice wagons, as long as it's not a "woody".

    I like them too but for usefulness, much like a Crosstour. A custom SS wagon appeals to me as well as does the custom jobby pictured but a stock one is not much to look at.

    You said what's aesthetically pleasing. I mentioned the rounded styling. I then went on to showcase a good example.


    Heck, I'd even rock a woody wagon if the right one came up. Yes, I like the wood. Florida sun is less-than-kind to it, though.
