My Dad apparently saw one here in Orlando the other day.

He wasn't pleased because it wasn't a full size Caprice.

Know what I love about this cappy tho? I love that my rear Windows have a curve but the cap Windows are pointy. Get it? Kinda cool

I just feel they were reaching, trying to make it look like a G8, i mean I love the g8 which I always thought was just a fullsize version of the newer GTOs, but this car needs alil less G8 alil more Imapla to be a Caprice. Don't get me wrong I like it, but for it to be a Caprice it should be alittle more similar to the Impala, but in the end that would just make it like the late 80s or from 96 on, where GM'll make one or the other because making both is alil pointless. But I love the Caprice, but this will need some tweaking for its next model year.

I don't think they were trying to make it look like anything. It's a Holden Commodore with a different grill. They needed a full size, rwd police car and the Holden fit the bill. People who buy police fleets could care less what it looks like, just how it works. Personally I like the way the dressed up Holden version looks, but a retro 65 Impala version of this platform would be way cooler.

To be honest I don't hate this car, I'd buy it. The only thing is it just seems odd that the caprice went from the impala's twin to a cheap revival of the G8/ nationlized Holden car. I guess its just the lack of model years for the past 16 years, to lead up to this new design to connect the dots. I think it would be better with more chrome trim, and i think the old caprice emblem should've been used on it.

I know I'm a little late getting in on this thread, but saw one of these cop cars here in Charleston yesterday. That has the makings of a badass ride! I love the flared fenders and the true side vents. The pictures make it almost look a little "skinny" in the rear end, but on the road I didn't notice that. LOVE the 6.0 under the hood!! It needs a rear spoiler to balance out the look from the side. Can't wait to drive one of those when they're available to the public around here.

Keep your eyes open for auctions around you. Also, look inot the auctions here, on this forum. Look under The ebay Caprice sales. I see them there a lot! Expensive, usually OVER 30k.....

Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.

Are those new or used that you're seeing? No way I'd pay $30K for a used cop car!! I was thinking along the lines of the civilian version...

They're probably really lightly used or something

Just for kicks, I googled it and from what I saw, they are still only selling them as new cars to law enforcement. Most of the new ones I saw were in the $30K-$33K range, depending on the options. I know there are probably quite a few people on this forum driving them, but I just couldn't make myself buy a used cop car after seeing the way they're treated around here.
