Today I saw, for only the second time ever, a Caprice that had a Landau style top. It was a 91/92 body. How many of these things were made? Was this a Chevy option? (shudder) If not, who the heck put them on these great cars?

Curious....

If any body wants one of these tops e mail me directly and I can give you the prices and get some pics of it. I also can get a Classic grill for the SS and Caprice.

SC : I think you're about as likely to find a vinyl top customer on this thread as you are likely to find a 9 second Honda Civic on your street. It's possible in theory, but ain't too likely in reality

You are probably right Ed. They are some what popular in the central states for Caprices of course. Couldnt see anyone doing it to an Imp.

I wouldnt put it past some of the people around here. I own a paint & body shop in Houston and i've done some crazy crap to Impalas for customers. I've painted Impalas CANDY GOLD to CANDY MONEY GREEN and every disgusting shade of candy in between.I even saw an Impala with the TOP CUT OFF!!! I try now to stay out off those parts of town.

I see two of those topped caprices daily on my drive to work (ok, ones at work) I hate the way they look, they detract from the styling of the car soo much, its just awful

I got you all beat guys, a few months ago I saw a DCM SS with a simulated convertable roof (I almost crashed my DCM), but the worst was the white civie Caprice with a light green LS style padded vinyl top - these cars are NOT meant to have tese things on them.

I have never seen one of these on a Caprice in San Antonio, thank goodness!

Does this mean people living in San Antonio have more or less class???

Later...
