Hello! I have admired these cars for years and finally picked one up. I purchased a 2016 Caprice with only 1400 miles on it! I have owned several b-bodies over the years and still have a black 1996 Roadmaster sedan.

This Caprice never had any gear mounted to it or holes violating the body. First mod was to disconnect the T53 lights inside the deck lid. I have been accumulating parts for a while now, SS center console, NOS repeaters from AU, silver ice door handles with an additional lock cylinder cover for the passenger side door, and from Karo; a Holden grille, boot badge and spoiler. There's a ton of stuff I want to do, and I am thankful a forum like this exists for these cars!

Welcome. It till be interesting to see what those door handles look like on the car. I'm betting they look good on a silver car.

There are people who would be HAPPY to take those T53's off your hands. ;)

Sorry guys, no plans on getting rid of the T53's. . . .

The car was purchased used from a dealer, though it's close enough to new for me.
