YAK Car Pic of the Day



I guess that not every 1991 Chevy Caprice was either a police car or a taxi cab. Here’s a brown civilian sedan which was looking forgotten about sitting in a Machias driveway three winters ago. This was the first year for this “bathtub” styled Chevy, and even though they were a pretty big seller (almost 202,000 of them went out the door) many weren’t happy with the closed-up rear wheel wells. For the 1993 models, they were opened up, revealing the entire tire and not looking quite so heavy. The Caprice sedan sold for around sixteen-and-a-half grand when new, and there was also a wagon version which shared a body shell with the Olds Custom Cruiser and the Buick Roadmaster. They were big cars. B-i-g cars. Check out the ’91 Caprice brochure here.
