    Just wanting to say Hi

    Post  Kevin54 on Sun Feb 01, 2015 10:31 pm

    My names Kevin and I ran across this forum from an ad on another forum. I signed up to see what others have as far as B-Body's. I bought an '80 a few months back, one owner, older lady, Caprice Landau with a 5.7 Diesel. I never thought I would own a Caprice, and really never thought I would own a diesel. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet as I bought it on a whim, but it is super straight and super clean for a 35 year old car, plus it runs like a top.

    I'd post a pic or two but not sure how to do it yet. As soon as I find out I'll post up. She's no tire burner, but she is a great cruiser.

    A Landau with a diesel? WOW! That's a pretty rare car. 4 doors are the only ones I've seen them in.
    I've always wondered how well they would respond to a turbo or two?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Pics, pics, pics, lol!
