Left late Monday night and got in Wednesday morning. Cape Cod, MA to Baltimore, MD on 1 tank with a few gal to spare. 23.5 MPG loaded to the ceiling.





Wagon averaged 22-23 MPG. Not a single mechanical issue. Despite several people I know, who don't know cars, judging a book by it's cover. You're driving "THAT" to Florida? Very Happy You sure it's gonna make it?

Kenly, NC



Fort Pierce, FL

Yes, the Caddy is a HUGE change from the blown suspension, broken exhaust manifold bolt, no AC ugly wagon. Smooth, quiet, ice cold AC and a real head turner, for the right reasons.

These perfectly smooth Florida roads are great with the lowered suspension.

Thanks!

Yes right now it's all novel. We'll see how I feel about it in a few months lol. Gonna start looking for a job in a week or so. Gonna spend some time with the family.



These two are on the back burner for now. I took the Caprice for a short ride around the community. First ride it's been on in 2 years. Runs and drives great.

In all fairness Tim, the blown suspension, broken exhaust manifold bolt, no AC ugly wagon, didn't leave you on the side of the road.

Glad you made it down there safely. We'll miss you up here.

It's funny seeing Rhode Island plates in Florida instead of the other way around Very Happy

Tim, glad to see you made it with no issues. Is Ft. Pierce and/or PSL near Jupiter FL? I stayed there for a week a couple years ago and the area looked just like your pic with the Caddy there. There were a LOT of people from New England down there, everyone was nice and friendly also.

It was really funny how good the roads were down there, most of them were cement I think where I was. I didn't like how a lot of stuff was set up in a grid pattern and was giving me deja vu as we drove around places, I'm too used to the cow paths turned highways up here I guess. But I will definitely assume people down there get more miles out of their suspension parts!

If I'm ever gonna be down that way I'll let you know ahead of time. Smile

Glad your trip went well, hope all goes well in Florida.

(BTW, Rhode Island isn't really it's own state anyway, it's really just a town in the southeast of Mass) Razz

Damn I love that Caprice... Gonna be sad not seeing it unless I road trip it Cool

Remember to log in every now and then, and get ready for a new life of junk yarding for us all Laughing

Good luck with everything Tim, especially landing a job and getting on your feet etc.
