New 2014 owner from Denver

Post by Ilikemtb999 » Sat Mar 02, 2019 3:41 pm

Hey everyone!

Got my car about a week ago now and just sorting thru it. Made the 1000 mile trip home without much issue other than a fan controller failure. Thankfully it was single digits most of the drive.

Here are some pics.

I also have a Tahoe SSV that my wife ended up stealing from me so we needed a new car, hence the caprice. It was ex border patrol and I’ve lowered it 2/3”

Nice. Also drove mine home 1500 miles. Kinda a good test drive, LOL.
How many miles on the car?

Now 101k miles. Hoping to order up some dod delete stuff and camshaft soon. Our SSV has half the hours and the same mileage and seems to be doing ok dod wise (though I’ve got a cam/dod parts sitting on the shelf). The caprice will probably get it first.

These showed up earlier in the week. Waiting for rear rotors still.

Picked up some ZL1 manifolds and cat pipes for dirt cheap. Was going to do long tubes (and still might) but the price was hard to pass up.

Nice! I'm up here in lafayette/broomfield. I think I've only seen one other caprice so far. Seen a couple g8s and that's about it. Hope she treats you well!

Thanks. I’ve met a guy out in aurora with a few of them and then a younger guy with a 2011 who was selling his car from I think castle rock.

It’s been fun so far. New brakes are awesome, love the way it looks lowered and plenty of room for a car seat.

Funny! I should nose-to-nose our two DDs. The picture would be pretty much like that one.

My wife thought I was dumb to want to take a picture of them together so when I went to borrow her Tahoe at work I did it. I slightly miss driving it but it’s so slow in comparison
