Amazing what you find online when taking a break from gaming all day in your mother's basement!!

/moderately jealous rant

I'll give you a follow to see where this goes.

Once upon a time, I used to drive a 1996 9C1 as a Paramedic chase car. Many good memories. Always wanted to restore one back to that time period. Maybe one day, but for now will look forward to seeing what you do with this one!
Good Luck!

Nice car, good luck with it! I have a few and love them all. Not equally but I don't tell them that.

I bought this 1994 Caprice in 2015 on eBay. It was an RCMP public relations car in Calgary. I shipped it across the border and restored it to what you see. It still ran super great and started on the first crank. I sold it last year back on eBay to a buyer in Poland. I kind of regret it now but they got a great car.

Did you wack yourself on the back of the head for that regret or just make sure you hold on to the next one you may get lucky to find?

No, I had already bought 2 new body Caprices. The first one is a White 2011 9C3 that was never issued to a department. I bought it with 20,500 miles. It has about 30,000 now after a couple of road trip and what the wife put on it. She won't stop driving it. The other is a Blue 2012 9C1 that was issued to Richland Washington Police Dept. It has 86,000 miles on it.

I’ve still got a 95 in my garage needing motor work. I’ve owned 7-8 9C1 b-bodies of various years. Lovely cars. I’d love to LS swap my current one.
