Clean Caprice Classic

Recommended Posts

Perhaps you remember my "winter warrior" 1979 Caprice Classic ... and how filthy it was when I bought and subsequently drove it this past winter:

I've wondered how it might look "all shined up", and a few others told me the same thing. So ... I finally took the time to clean it up a bit! And, the results:

Not perfect, but not shabby either. I love shiny chrome...!

That's a great winter beater.

I was born in 1979, looking over this car and realizing it's 31 years old makes me feel like a beat up old car. :mellow:

LOL!!!! My sister was born in 1979 ... I joined the earth a few years earlier.......

But ... yes ... definitely an awesome winter beater. I've used it a bit this spring/summer ... drove it to the MC Nationals in Richmond IN last weekend ... and sure enjoyed the ride.
