    UPDATE sold the yellow 64 chevy truck about 2 month ago and boy i sure miss it...

    About 4 month ago i come across a 96 Caprice for sale and the guy said it was vary clean but had a hurt motor....car looked mint in the pics that i seen so i went over and checked it out.....he had the motor pulled out and it had a spun main bearing so the block and crank was junk... The car itself was near mint and i loved the color..... its a 96 Caprice Classic and i was in love.... I told the guy i would think about ......few days later he texted me with a lower price and i never said anything..........few days later he text again with a lower price and i never said anything......about a week later he texted again but this time i could not believe b
    how low he went......this time text back and told him if he leaves the stereo system in it i will come get it......two days later he said come get it......

    Hey been following your thread. I am your neighbour upstairs.
    I have an 03 mm (not worth posting pics...its black, look like everyones belly button.lol)
    I have a 95 Caprice SS clone. Actual 9C1.
    My son and I built his first car. a 79 Malibu....
    And I am sick too. Not cancer but still an invisible disease non the less.(no cure)
    but everyday is a new day. everyday i wake up smiling and pray things go well
    My moto is fall 7 times, get up 8.
    I pray (as a christian) your health gets better and stays better.
    I don't know what ya do for a living but your hobby dictates you dont make hamburgers and if you do you serve Filet Mignon's.
    Either way. I love your builds and your motives.
    Im sure like me...you found some things out the hard way getting sick.
    I like you find solice in cars. They can't lie, hurt or abuse me.
    Keep the post and pics coming....sunny side up my friend

    sorry haven't gotten back to you sooner. My apologies.

    The Caprice just sold last week.Sold it with snows and 9C1 wheels
    I still have the centerlines with new rubber. I want $1000 for them.
    The tires here are $1100 plus tax...so its a decent price for all 4 tires,rims lugs, centers,spacers, center caps....everything to bolt on and go.
    I am on the hunt for a P71 or Matrix or whatever I find for a daily driver.
    I had to pull the MM out of storage to find another vehicle then it goes back for the winter. First time I had to drive it in the rain since we bought it. Just had to spray wax it it/dust it as we only drove it on nice days.
    I love the MM. Always wanted one since they came out. Being it was a 1 owner senior owned car....It wasn't beat.
    I plan on keeping it only if a 65-72 El Camino with bench 4 speed comes my way. Its my wifes dream car....Be only car Id trade for.
    Like my Caprice(impala ss). I always wanted one...now i have had one.
    Plus we have my sons car in the summer to drive. He turns 16 on Wednesday. If it wasn't for stupid insurance laws here he would be driving his own.
    IN Canada we have graduated licensing and classic (Hagerty) has restrictions on old auto insurance. Min 10 years driving exp. We pay $140 a year for his car insured at $8000. But if he gets his own insurance which that Malibu will never see any bad weather ever and used 100% for shows, cruises etc. His insurance is $5000 a year. Insane for a car driven 2000 km a year at best.This year was 1500 kms. So probably for a few years we will insure it but...he can't drive his own car....crappy.
    BTW....Love your collection....very impressive.
    Hope your felling well. Being sick can really suck.
