Well if I had to go back and buy a wagon again I probably would have been looking for a 94 so I can get the lt1 but I practically stole mine.

125,000 miles not a thing wrong with it mechanically interior is nice and it has slight hail damage and I only gave $2000 for mine. On the way home from buying it I still had the miles on the window and I had a truck full of guys ask me if I'd take $3000 and I said nope because I know what kinda deal I got.

My 1991 Caprice was the best B body I have ever owned for quality and reliability. That would include the 2 1994's I currently own, the 1995 SS I sold, and several older Caprices. The 1991 had 107,000 miles on it when I traded it in for my white 1994. No squeaks, rattles, rust, everything worked (original), no wind noise (a big complaint of mine on the 94-96), and ran great (305).

I still want to hear from more 91 Caprice Owners,but these are the specs on teh car i was looking at
91 Chev Caprice Classic, leather, power everything, has 105000kms on it, just a couple scratches on the car, and it has the 305, 5.0L and a towing package (about 65600 miles) and they are asking $6000 firm Canadian (about $3750 american), so if you want to comment on that too, that's be great

Dude, my 91 has original engine tranny and just this past summer it needed new axles after 220K miles. It looks to me that this could be one of the lowest mileage 91 Civie around. I say snag it.

Just depends on what you get. If you get a 9C1, watch out. I paid $650 for my 92 Caprice and had to put a new engine in it, new exhaust, new shocks, new rear-end, i busted a motor mount, u-joints were shot, but it had 151,000. I had to put a lotta munny into it, but we got it going.

i got my 92 caprice from a 80 year old guy and it runs great. this is my first car and god i love the b body's. just one thing to watch out for, older people have a little thing when it comes to riding the brakes. like on mine i need new rotors (i can drive find with them now but im going to need new ones soon) because him riding the brakes heated them up so much they got all messed up i cant even start to explain how. but all in all i love the car and im glad i bought it.

I've got a 91 Caprice I bought with 150,000 miles to use as a beater. It burns oil, leaks oil, rattles and is rusty behind the back wheels but it's just like the Energizer Bunny.Plus when it dies it will be a great parts car for my other two B-bodies. The first thing I would do if it was a keeper is change the cluster to a Roadmaster unit with the tach and gauges. I see Randode did it to his and that looks GREAT! Randode, if you read this can you post about this swap? I have a friend with a mint 91 who has an interest in doing this.
