Forum rules


Listings acceptable to post in this section are Caprice PPV's for sale by individuals, government entities (I.E. direct sale/auction/sealed bids), and the occasional car for sale on dealer lots (trade-in's for example) that do not normally sell Caprices. EBAY/Craigslist/auction site ads are OK for the above as well. Please do not post third party ads for cars on behalf of dealers that routinely sell used PPV's as part of their primary business. If you post a car for sale, please add the word "SOLD" in the header after the car sells as a courtesy to other members. Listings by members with under five forum posts may be removed without notice. Also please note our picture size limit of 1280x1024, larger pics may be moderated. Please check with a moderator if you have questions.

The plan for now is drive down early Tue morning, pick up a Uhaul trailer on the way (the deck on my trailer is junk), & drive home. I will definitely update as to the condition, etc. I lucked out when I bought the '12 in Charlotte, hopefully lightening will strike twice.

Soooo, I finally got the new girl home late yesterday afternoon. I didn't really have time to go through it, but...

...she started right up on the first crank. Ran a little rough, but I'm guessing because she's been sitting. Going to top off the tank (it has about 1/2) with the good stuff and run some dry gas through it, hopefully that'll help. It does have a tick for a second or two at start up. I'll have to keep an eye on/investigate that. Interior is fairly clean: no equipment holes, back seat looks like it was never sat in, no rips in the carpet, looks like the center console was taken apart at some point as the panels/skirts on either side are loose. The exterior has a few nicks, scratches, and such, nothing which can't be fixed at my buddy's body shop. The brakes are shot, but again nothing major (I have a Brembo setup I bought for my '12 anyway, so that's taken care of). I didn't get a good look at the treads, but she has Goodyear RS-A's for sneakers (I have a set of Firehawks and Holden wheels (again, bought for the '12) eagerly awaiting to be mounted and installed). Two of the wheel covers are discolored.

In the middle of yet another friggin' snowstorm, so I'll really dig in if and when spring ever arrives.

Craig, did yours get picked up yet? Which one did you get? There was one parked to the left of mine.

I got mine from Portland, Or. Sounds like yours and mine are in similar condition.
