Hi, introducing myself...name is Rick..,,used to live in Boston area , of late in Philly area, but family still in Boston metro.

For vehicles, I have a 1996 BBB Impala SS, which I am the original owner. Bone stock, With 200k miles. I also have two 1995 Caprice 9C1. One runs well, one has some needs to pass inspection, mainly underside rust issues. One 95 is DGGM and was in Penn State Police, other was in NJ State Police and is Medium Marblehead color. Lastly, I have a 2011 Caprice PPV, Black, late of Albany NY police department.

Always fiddling with the cars. Drop a line to chat.

Welcome aboard! Sounds like you’ve got quite the collection and well versed in the B body.

Nice fleet as well !!!!! I loved the boxy Caprices. I had an 89 9C1 but the body mounts rusted off the frame and it was no longer safe to drive. The 95 Pa State Police 9C1 was not a Patrol Car, it was driven by a woman officer, who was in the safety department. So had no holes for lights or antennas. I have had since 2007. Had to put a new transmission in it as well as replace the digital cluster. Put a tow bar on it. Runs good at 179k but needs right front fenderwell, radiator support, and a couple control arms, all suffering from rust holes. Frame has a rust spot where the emergency cable goes thru the frame. The 95 NJ State Police car was undercover and only has 90k miles on it. My daily driver. Both these cars have the LT1 engine, same as my Impala SS, but OBD1 of course. My 2011 Caprice 9C1 is my significant other’s daily driver. Very fast car. Has a 6.0L LS2 derivative in it with 6 speed automatic trans. Something like 365 or more HP. No optispark thank god, has coil packs. Probably a foot or foot and a half shorter than the 95. Made in Australia by Holden, basically the same as the Chevy SS and Pontiac G8 and GTO. All now discontinued. The Caprice PPV only made 2011-2017 as a 9C1, and also in 2011-2013 as a 9C3 (called detective version) and not a high volume seller for Police work. Unreal number of sensors on it. Has both a PCM for engine control and a BCM (Body control Module) for everything else from air bags, door locks, trunk, suspension, TPMS, body lean, and many other things. Has second battery in trunk. And several power distribution blocks under both the hood and trunk. Is a flex fuel vehicle and has sensors to detect level of ethanol in the fuel. In other words, an order of magnitude more complex than the 90’s Caprices.

Ohhhh yeeeaa. Sounds like all the typical sweetness. I don’t drive my 9C1 in the winter. I bought it after auction in California almost 10 years ago and I like to keep it rust free. I have an SS for the winter. The 87 9C1 won’t see winter either. I hate to see good cars go to shit from salt. I usually buy a winter car that’s already rusty but you get what you pay for und uhhh, none of those cars are financial decisions I’m willing to make again.
