YAK Car Pic of the Day

I’m always amazed at how many old Chevys from the 1950s and 1960s are still around, yet you rarely see one from the 1970s. Then again, who wants to (for the most part)? Anyway, here’s a pretty nice 1971 Chevy Caprice, a car which the brochure called “Probably the most inexpensive expensive car ever built.” Two-door hardtops with this roofline, in Chevrolet parlance, are Custom Coupes, while those with a roofline like the brown Impala at the bottom of the page are Sport Coupes. My Grandpa had a gold ’71 Sport Coupe; he was a Chevy man through-and-through. This For Sale Caprice was spotted yesterday in Niagara Falls.
