I went home from work last night and saw my car pass me going the opposit way on the road.I almost turned round to fallow them!He he he.It was a white C.C. ,Im not sure if it was a 91 or not like mine but he had the same white caprice and Im thinking it was a 91,and I JUST painted my new Impy grill white,and cleaned my car etc. and then I see a car EXACTICALLY like mine!,I think Im losing it.I see modified caprices every where!If you've read my post YUCK!!! then you know what I mean.Then today on my way to work I see a burgandy wagon with the hood orniment delete and a black impy grill!Is this car all of the sudden popular again and I was last to know?Weird to say the least....lol,Maybe Im just noticing them more becase I have one but I dont think so.lol...

That's wierd. I took my Impala out of storage for new tires and a road trip (funeral) just last week. I went from Flint to Roger's City (tip of your index finger on the Michigan palm map) which is over 3 hours each way and only remember seeing 3 other Caprices. One sedan and two wagons. I realize I drove through a lot of "BFE" but it still surprised me that out of 6 hours on the damn road - I had the ONLY Impala SS out there!
It was good to wake her up from her nap, but I sure wish I would see more. I'm sure I will, though, as the weather starts to cooperate for us.

Yeah, I've seen about 5 all winter around here and got sick every time. They all looked like winter rides and only one had winter wheels.
I realize it's just a car, but I can't help but get a little pissed when I remember when I couldn't afford one and what a "holy grail" the Impala was for me for years and I see some A-hole who obviously has no appreciation for what he's got and has let it deteriorate down to almost POS status.

Not that everyone who drives their Impala in the snow is an A$$HOLE, either, BTW. But I'm sure you know what I mean.

Mine was used year round before I got it from my buddy, but at least he used winter rims, put on some mudflaps to keep the crap off the body, and washed it regularly.

You know, I want to show up to these meetings myself, but unfortunately, I have to work EVERY saturday 8-3. Any chance it will ever be at a different time (like later in the afternoon) for those of us who'd like to join but live an hour or so away? As a side note, I see TONS of caprices daily around big rapids... at least 3 9C1's besides mine. Haven't seen any SS's until today... a DCM with 9C1 wheels and trim rings and a sunroof... had Missl stickers in the quarter windows. All I got to see as it drove by, lol.

later metting would be better for me too considering I sleep in late saterdays i dont have to work.which right now there hasnt been to many,but summers commin and thats gonna mean alot of mandatory weekends. :(
Also you mentioned the rogers plasa lot,Isnt that where the crotch rocket kids like to hang?I have seen towards the end of summer some older muscle cars there but thats all I remember.I didnt hang in that area alot,My girlfriend lives in Alto,so Im out there alot.But it defanintly sounds like fun.Im already plotting my next caprice purchase and then maybe a 9c1,some thing to show me the power of the lt1.Right now I have the 305 91 C.C.,and the one Im looking to get for dirt cheep is a 91 also,but that would be a project car just to get rode ready again considering I need a winter beater,Once this summers over the C.C.ss is going into hibernation,lol.

Hey Guys.

I think we are going to have some events and hangout nights besides the meetings so even if you can't make the meetings, get on the Yahoo list and keep your eye on the events page on the website.

Heck I drive almost an hour myself from the Kalamazoo area to the morning meeting.
