1A2 "Coprice": 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon

The fourth generation Chevrolet Caprice was sold from 1991 to 1996 as the last hurrah for the Caprice name launched in 1964 (until the Caprice name was brought back for fleet use in 2011).   The Caprice Wagon shares most of its parts with the Buick Roadmaster Wagon but it lacks the faux wood sides, which ain't a bad thing at all. This next example is offered as a "1A2" package cop version and by 1995 it was powered by the mean LT1 V8, so this unicorn gets a two horns up from DT. Find this 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Wagon here on eBay bidding for $3702 reserve-not-met with 3 days to go. Tip from Lou.

  1. Absolutely the weirdest name for a car, particularly bad name for a police car,

    WTF was GM thinking?
    Thank you Daily Turismo for finally giving me an opportunity to get that off my chest! It has been bugging me for decades

    a sudden, unpredictable change, as of one's mind or the weather.

    a tendency to change one's mind without apparent or adequate motive; whimsicality; capriciousness:
    With the caprice of a despotic king, he alternated between kindness and cruelty.

    1. Yes, it's a rather strange choice. I'm guessing they wanted to imply it's the perfect car to go on a trip anywhere on a whim, but still, it also implies the drivetrain might act capriciously instead of the owner.

      However, I think the "weirdest name for a car" choices might have to go to the AMC Gremlin (a mythical spirit that causes mechanical breakdowns) or the Daihatsu Charade (it's pretending to be a car?).

    2. I used to refer to the Ford Aspire as the Pinocchio of cars as in “someday I will be a real car”
