I've had plenty of Caprice sedans. I even had a Roadmaster wagon. But, I've never had a Roadmaster Sedan. This car was cheap so I had to buy it.

It's a 1992 Limited with a Presidential top. This car is loaded. It's got 124k on it.

When I first looked at it.





After some cleaning.



So far I replaced the water pump, front shocks and rear air shocks. The timing has been set and the exhaust leak is fixed.

Winter will be here soon and she will be driven in the snow. The belly is pretty clean for a New England car this old. I want it to stay clean so I did some painting. I know it's not POR 15 and I didn't use a sandblaster but this is better than nothing. Still needs to be finished.



After getting her running good I turned to it's looks.

I had all the whitewalls turned out and busted out my grinder!



Found some '53 Roadmaster hubcaps for it now she is looking good!




:D

Congrats, looks clean! Not a fan of the full vinyl tops, but still looks good.
I wasn't either but I dont think this car would be the same without it! It's grown on me.

Does that Caprice have an OCC nose on it?

It sure looks better than when you got it.

Well my caprice is of course faster and the suspension is less floaty. I like this better for a daily driver. It is smooth and quiet and my foot doesn't get pushed down... too much.
