set of 5 Caprice Steel Wheels, used. Center caps included.

I noticed http isn't auto redirected to https which makes logging in insecure if you're not paying attention.

New User in SOCAL (maybe soon colorado)

Hi! Got my first caprice last year and have been lurking the forums for a while, figured it would be time to make an account!
My caprice is a white 2013 from wsp and I love the thing. Got lots of plans for it but very little money but hey, one piece at a time right?
