So a few weeks ago, I managed to pick up a beautiful, two-tone 1993 Caprice with only 106k original miles for $800.

Good find! Very clean!

Wish I knew you were in the market. I'm still trying to sell the blue '93 we have with 91,000 miles!

I have been eyeing this one for awhile, actually! Was on my way to get another car, when I saw this one was for sale. Two-tones are very rare, so Had to scoop this up! I saw the blue one, actually. But ultimately this was more within my reach. Only issue is the horn. Common issue with 91-93, apparently!

Nice find. Matt Smith did a write up on fixing the horn with door bell buttons I think.

Do NOT put door bells in your steering wheel!!!!!!

I have the correct complete steering wheel (IN RED) with working horns.
Fix it the right way. I work in Millbury,MA and could meet you there m-f with it if you don't want to drive all the way to Warren, MA to get it.

Sadly, I don't have the money for the gas down there or the actual steering wheel. I'm in between jobs right now and I'm in a bit of a rut, so I'm truly stressing out over getting this damn thing inspected.

While I see your point of swapping a wheel, not for nothin', but the "doorbell" fix isn't exactly the wrong way either, since the OEM switches are useless and were probably broken in my car before it had 10K miles on it.  Rolling Eyes  

If it wasn't a good fix, I definitely wouldn't have taken an extra 45 minutes to photograph what I did and host all the pictures. It still works to this day too.  Wink

Dan, if you still have the 96 car take the wheel and airbag from the 96 and swap it onto the 93 for the sticker.
(If it was me I'd keep it on there permanently.....way better looking wheel anyway).

Or you can unplug the horns in the fender, run a length of wire from the horn to a push button and then from the other side of the button to the horn fuse (wedge the wire in with the fuse) or whatever one has constant power.

Remove once you get a sticker and then your good for a year.
