Default Caprice wagon.... worth it?

OH BOY! is it worth it? I've always wanted to do a Impy SS grille and rim swap onto one of these. Obviously the 350 TBI.

BTW, just to let ya know, i have always desired the wagons, they are big and boaty, but thats the fun part when you have a LT1 TT dropped in it mated to a 6 speed, and no one knows about it when you take it to the track.

What'* wrong with the Cavy you have?

I remember that you told me that you thought the Caprice was too big and too boaty for you and the Bonnie was better suited for you. That was a sedan, the waggy will be even bigger and more boaty. No, it'* not worth it, save your money, you're throwing your money around. Save it for a nice Bonnie instead of 300-400 rustbuckets
