Working On and Playing With The '93 Chevrolet Caprice Classic Station Wagon
For those few in the crowd who didn't know or were possibly doubting me...I
went and did something that was, shall we say, a bit "capricious". I just
love my new old Road Sofa. It's one of a little over 10,600 Caprice-branded
station wagon body models made in 1993. This one was assembled at GM's
Willow Run plant in early 1993 (probably not too long before it closed).
My brother and I changed the oil and greased parts of the undercarriage
this time around. Next up is the air filter, as the currently installed one
is filthy. For an Illinois car that's nearly 20 years old, the condition is
not bad. Front brakes, Exhaust work
and new shock absorbers are next.
I find the car more than fast enough for my needs (not having anything to
do with OptiSpark is also a *real* plus!), yet the Grand Marquis is likely
faster because it's lighter, has
an engine that develops more power and has a newer fuel injection system on
it. (It does appear that the L05 develops more torque than the 4.6L Modular
V8. Where this happens for each engine is not known.) I also didn't feel
the need to flog the poor old engine in this car senseless in an effort to
outrun the Keykeeper.
rating for the L05 engine was not carefully verified, so if it's wrong,
it's wrong. Oh well.
World's Greatest Wagon? - /BIG MUSCLE
• BIG MUSCLE GARAGE
Sometimes old cars break, it's just what happens. While some may see this
as an inconvenience, we here at /BIG MUSCLE took it as an opportunity to
expand our horizons, take a chance, and venture to a place we rarely
frequent - the drag strip. Our plan was to film, talk to and get an idea of
what racers go through when they run their cars down the 1,320. Everything
was going great, until that is, they told us WE could race. We showed up in
our 1992 Chevrolet Caprice wagon, aka, the Battle Wagon, so we knew we
weren't going to set any records. What we weren't prepared for though, was
the amount of fun we'd have running one of the slowest vehicles on the
planet, at one of the fastest places in Northern California.
David Vs. Goliath
Goliath wins here. '87 Caprice wagon Vs. '07 Chevy Cobalt. Both are our
daily drivers. Not the quickest run in the world, but this is just the
first test day after the engine swap in the wagon. keep in mind that you
can still hear the wagon OVER the loudspeakers until more than a quarter

condition and still working on it. You will notice a tailpipe that is NOT
hooked up right now. the car is currently running on straight long tube
headers. This is the second start-up of the car. Work is done by Clean

Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!
The FARM TRUCK! The ultimate sleeper truck
http://www.1320video.com/store/dvd/ Sean's farm truck from
midweststreetcars / 405 is one of the a best sleepers out there, this beat
up old farm truck really puts down the power with it's Nitrous assisted big block, running into the 10's
at the track, and spanking cars on the street! Check out the wheelies it
pulls off with some help from PIMP JUICE (his creation)
