I know it's really goddam cold out ..... But I love the insane throttle response the Caprice has. Christ , I can break the tires loose on a whim. I feel 18 again when I can do that. geek

Yea these cars really do love the cold weather.

Definately ten or more horsepower on days like this.

But being up in a bucket truck is quite the suckfest on days like today. Even with the bucket heater on... Sad

Any car likes a cool dense air/fuel mixture. Fuel milage suffers, but the grin factor goes way up. Very Happy

I've had to use a wet saw before in weather like this, even colder, it had ice all over it.

I've noticed the Caprice is a more powerful too. But even before I was surprised at how quick the car is with the little 305 and tall 2.56 gears in the back.

I've heard that a 305 is a good motor to build up and can be more powerful than a 350 if you mess with the air-fuel mixture flow/head work and put a forced induction system on there, I don't know how true that is but I'm guess if so, the cold dense air makes a huge difference with this car.
