Your correct that the Caprice is going over seas. Its also going to
There are dozens of Caprice's in the junkyard I go to. Some of the older
people don't keep a car that long anymore. Seeing 96 was the last year
made if a guy had a 84 and wanted a new Caprice in 2000 he went over to
Mercury and bought a Grand Marquis or a Ford Crown Victoria. Espicially
if he wanted a car to use to tow with.
I have a feeling the Caprice sales were not that high in the 90's so
that would acount for not seeing to many of them now. My car model
between the LE, SE & SSE , GM only made around 43,000. I rarely see
I see lot of the 87-89 and 92's but those years saw sales in the 140,000
There are more Marquis around here than you can shake a stick at. The
neighbor across the street helped his son by a mint low miler 91
Firebird last year, 8 months later it got totaled while parked downtown,
they replaced it with a 90 ish Formula. The old man starts driving it
pretty soon the kid is SOL for a car, so the old man buys the kid a new
Formula sounds like a G__D___ 747 everytime he starts it up.
Meanwhile, the kid is loving driving this big Crown Victoria.
Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis and Town Car sales did real good when the
RWD Caprice, Roadmaster & Cadillac Brougham died off in 1996.
