Hi i have a 91 caprice 350 that was a doraville, GA police car. I am the 3rd owner including the police. Its been pulled out of the grips of death from the previous owner by me and my mad scientist and now I'm trying to convert into the all-purpose everything. Buick interior, police scare people, chevy insurance, 350 power. i own the car for 1700 including buying price. the list of what i've done so far is below. i've been using this as a work car for a few months. we just got my 97 escort a new tranny so now its back on the road for the first time in 7 months and i can beat up on it while making the caprice into everything i want. i guess that will follow in the next posts. New to these cars, so give me all the suggestions you have

Welcome and you're definitely on the right track by repairing/maintaining the car before you upgrade it. I especially like that the rust repair was on the top of your list.

Now all you need is to do alot of reading/seaching and you'll be golden.

Questions are more than welcome but more times than not they've been asked & answered.
