This next car is quite something else. It starts with a normal looking Chevrolet Caprice Classic (not an Impala…) and then continues to have another Caprice that was shortened to puffer fish proportions and turned into a trailer. With the available 8 seats (3+3+2) in the Caprice and then the final 5 in the trailer (3+2) you get a total seating for 13 in a vehicle that might not technically be legal to have people in the back, but I think the only reason a cop would pull you over would be to tell you how awesome it looked.

This next car comes as a tip from Matt C who writes: I’m pretty sure I’ve seen one of these before, and your site is the most likely suspect. Hey, I take offense to that statement…because everything on this site is strictly perfectly restored concours approved classics. Just because the last few weeks has featured two Fiberfab Aztecs and a Jaguar V6 powered MX-5 doesn’t mean we aren’t purists at heart. Hah, who am I kidding — this plastic minitruck bodied Super Stepside Caprice has side pipes and a spot in DT’s garage any day of the week. At first glance I thought this was a one-off creation, but it is a kit built by Donald Fusilier in Lafayette Louisiana who also makes Cajun fiberglass truck fenders and crawfish tables.

The Caprice name was first used by GM on a full sized top of the line Chevrolet in 1966. You could even get the Caprice with a big block pushing 425 horsepower out of some crazy 11:1 compression ratio solid lifter equipped beast…but those are collectible and expensive today…and still slower than the Caprice you can get from a city surplus auction for about $5k. The sixth generation Caprice was built in Australia through 2017 when the Holden plant was closed and another chapter in the automotive history books was closed.

You guys are familiar with the show Leepu and Pitbull, right? No, it’s not a Bollywood detective show, but a History channel reality car building show starring Bangladeshi tuk-tuk car designer Leepu Awila and (likely ex-Mafiosi) Steve “Pitbull” Trimboli. You’d think that I’m making this up…but I’m 100% not and this next car was the featured build on episode 8 of season 1. The show is a veritable dumpster fire of muttonchops and eagle beak front ends. AND I LOVE IT!! HOW WAS THIS CANCELED AFTER ONLY ONE SEASON?? History should have canned all of those stupid American Chopper wannabe shows and run Leepu & Pitbull marathon 24-7! Screw the Velocity Channel, I want the Leepu & Pitbull channel. Find this 1991 Chevrolet Caprice bidding for $3649 reserve-not-met with 2 days go, located in North Chemlsford, MA.
The forth generation Chevrolet Caprice was used by so many Police departments for many many decades that they still evoke a instinctive brake check from motorists…myself included. This next example might date from the bubble styling era but the addition of a huge supercharger under the hood will let it keep up with modern fast […]
The Horrorod as defined by Daily Turismo as: Any customized vehicle that makes you want to huddle up in the fetal position and cry. As Halloween approaches, we prepare for our annual Festival of Horrorods the only way we know how…which is to post more Horrorods. It is a vicious circle of horror, but I’m […]
The fourth generation Chevrolet Caprice was sold from 1991 to 1996 as the last hurrah for the Caprice name launched in 1964 (until the Caprice name was brought back for fleet use in 2011). The Caprice Wagon shares most of its parts with the Buick Roadmaster Wagon but it lacks the faux wood sides, which […]
Is your thumb too gross to put in front of the license plate when you take the photo? Can’t find a dirty yellow/red shop rag? No problem, use a classic small straw dust broom. Because everybody has one of them sitting around. Those little dust brooms are about as common as a Caprice with 28k […]
She’s a beaut Clark! There has to be a story about how and why a forty year old Caprice wagon from metro Boston area looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor. This maroon long roof is blessedly free of wood grain side paneling and has jarring shade of red interior. If you wanted […]

Today’s next example won’t be mistaken for an active duty police cruiser, but it should be a hoot to drive. Find this 1996 Chevrolet Caprice 6 speed offered for […]
