    78 Caprice Classic 2-Door

    Post  chev78fan on Sun Jun 08, 2014 9:40 am

    First off it's cool to find a forum of fellow Caprice/Impala owners.  Cool 

    Here's my pride and joy!

    1978 2-door Caprice Classic - I've known the car since the day it was purchased.  I've owned it since June 1987.

    Specs:
    GM ZZ4 crate motor
    custom built TH350 trans
    10-bolt (BOP - no c-clips) with Powertrax posi & 3.73's
    power windows
    power seats
    1995 - GM Indigo Blue Metallic (truck color) - painted summer of 1995
    runs mid 13's at 99mph

    Car was used in our wedding (1995) and also brought both of our sons home from the hospital when they were born (1997 & 2000).

    Welcome to the forum! Man that thing is nice looking! i never get tired of seeing these cars, they are just over looked and under-appreciated. That blue works really well!

    Welcome! I'm liking that color too! Is that a Lebanon Valley Speedway sticker on the quarter window?

    Good eye - those are Lebanon Valley stickers. I won the Top Street Track Championship in 2005 & 2006.
