My '82 Chevrolet Caprice Classic 2-Door

Purchased in 1982 from a police officer...5500 miles. I truly believe he didn't care for the 305 5.0 V8 engine. He won't admit to it. I have maintained this beauty and it still looks like it did in '82. I put it away in December and take it out in April. Hasn't seen a Michigan winter in 37 years. (Drove it all year in '82-'83). There were only 11,999 2-Doors mfg. in 1982 vs over 86,000 4-Doors. Later it became the rarest Chevrolet IN 1982. I have kept track from day one on every penny I have put into it. Currently $14,000 dollars. Sounds like a lot but averages out to around $30 month....sounds better looking at it at that angle. 117K miles and still going strong. I call it my Johnny Cash car...replacing it "One Piece At A Time". When you have/own old classic cars be prepared to put money into them. It happens to everyone that has one. But...I truly enjoy driving it around in the summer. It's my special "baby".
