I just got my issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines today and it has an good article about Low Budget Rides.
Here's what they had to say about the 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic:
When a car comes from the factory with a warning sticker on the drivers side mirror that reads "Caution Close All Windows Above 140 MPH",you know you're in for a good time. Chevrolet's four-door Corvette, as the police package Caprice is known among enthusiasts, is basically a trunk lid spoiler and a set of 17-inch alloys away from being the vaulted Impala SS. It's hard to argue with fuel-injected 350-cu. in. LT1 V-8 that brings 260hp and 330-lbs.ft. of torque to the party, and police package (9C1 code-speak) goodies like heavy-duty full-perimeter frame, transmission oil cooler, four-wheel anti-lock disk brakes a HD cooling system and HD suspension means this bulky Caprice can boogie with the best of them. If you like comfort and old-school performance wrapped in a Q-ship package, then this is your cheap muscle car ride.

I wasn't sure what Q-ship meant so I looked it up.
A decoy ship, especially an armed ship disguised as a merchant ship to entice submarines to surface so that they may be attacked with gunfire.
(Now I know what that gun sight on my hood is/was for.)

Tobes of Hades, lit by flickering torchlight
The netherworld is gathered in the glare
Prince By-Tor takes the cavern to the north light
The sign of Eth is rising in the air

By-Tor, knight of darkness
Centurion of evil, devil's prince

Across the River Styx, out of the lamplight
His nemesis is waiting at the gate
The Snow Dog, ermine glowing in the damp night
Coal-black eyes shimmering with hate

By-Tor and the Snow Dog
Square for battle, let the fray begin

The battle's over and the dust is clearing
Disciples of the Snow Dog sound the knell
Rejoicing echoes as the dawn is nearing
By-Tor, in defeat, retreats to Hell

Snow Dog is victorious
The land of the Overworld is saved again
