Was there ever a logo specifically for the Caprice, something like what the deer is for the Impala? I vaguely remember something like a circle with a line though the middle of it, if I'm on the right track. Can anybody provide some more information on this? I was getting ready to buy the LTZ flat hood emblem until I realized that a bowtie would be on the Impala grill plus the emblem, which would look redundant. A Caprice logo would be a much better answer!

If you want a real Caprice logo, go for the ones that are on the boxies. Particular the Brougham versions.

Lilly flower....

Coming to think of it...

Isn't "Chevrolet" an Indian name made up by the Frenchies?

And what does it mean?

I know what Caprice means according to the dictionary....

It was derived from the Latin word Capra...which means goat...

But in Italian...


CAPRICE
Gender: Feminine
Usage: Italian
Means "impulsive" in Italian.


Sorry to hijack the topic...I'm out.

Pretty neat. I completely forgot about the Fleurs de Lis symbol, but I'm wondering how that would fit with the rest of the car. I don't know where the heck I saw that circle emblem.

The closet that I remember Chevrolet having a circle with a line through it was the Malibu emblem

It was actually meant to look like an ocean wave to tie into the Malibu heritage

Oldsmobile had the Rocket Blast for their close-out years


As for the Caprice Fluer De Lys on a Bubble body, SnowDog captured my favorie placements for them.

As per an Encyclopedia reference found here
http://www.reference.com/browse/wiki/Caprice
http://www.reference.com/browse/wiki/Capriccio
-------------------------------------------------
Capriccio
A capriccio or caprice is a piece of music, usually fairly free in form and of a lively character.
The term has been applied to a variety of works: in the Baroque era is was often used for short keyboard pieces (for example, by Girolamo Frescobaldi). Niccolo Paganini used it for a set of twenty-four virtuoso solo violin works, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov used it for orchestral works (the Capriccio italien and Capriccio espagnol respectively). Johannes Brahms wrote many capriccios for piano during the later years of his life, all of which are considered to be amongst the most unique and thoughtful pieces of the late Romantic era.
-------------------------------------------------
I'm sure that's what GM had in mind as some of their Original AD's from the 60's-70's referred to them as being a Symphonic/Concerto driving experience or a Masterpiece of Elegance/Luxury.

I would also like to learn more about this Violin piece
http://www.reference.com/browse/wiki/24th_Caprice
-------------------------------------------------
24th Caprice
The final caprice of Nicolo Paganini's 24 Caprices is a famous work for solo violin.
It is widely considered one of the most difficult peices ever written for the solo violin. It uses many highly advanced techniques such as parallell octaves, rapid shifting, extremely fast scales and arpegios, difficult left hand pizzicato, high positions, and quick string crossing.

People study for many years and still are unable to acquire the virtuosity that is expected for a piece such as this.

The work consists of a theme, 11 variations, and a finale. Many different varions of this work have been composed by various composers, including Rachmaninoff.
