    1st review

    Well seeing that I work for the "Most Advanced Police Department in the Nation", I was given this car as a replacement to my 04 CVPI after a drunk destroyed it with me and my partner in it. I will say this, it is a more roomy vehicle, has better get up and go than the CVPI. I wouldn't trade this vehicle in unless I was given a brand new vehicle. I am in a 94 unmarked bubble, with 70k on the odometer. It is nice.

    This is the best damn daily driver/pursuit vehicle ever built (other than specific purpose, like the camaro) Unbelievable handling and power, there is no replacement for the 9C1.

    I have been assigned two Chevrolet Caprices in my career. The first was a 1993 Caprice. This vehicle was special ordered with a 305 for fuel ecconomy. This vehicle was terrible for acceleration (I probably never reached top speed due to lightbar), fuel mileage probably was 1 MPG better (I worked traffic enforcement). However, the handling was excellent and was the only reason I could maintain pursuits. I would lose on straight aways but made up in cornering compared to CVPI. My second was a 1995 slicktop with the LT1. I absolutely loved the speed and handling of this vehicle. Responding to rural officer down reached 153 MPH on 10 mile stretch and had excellent handling. Cornering was perfect. Yes, I loved this car and was extremely disappointed when it was removed from service and was replaced with CVPI. I'd love to own one personally, rode like a Cadillac. These vehicles had excellent interior room for a large male and all of my equipment (radar, radio, scanners, CB, shotgun mount, duty bag, outerwear, etc.) The runk was large enough to carry all accident investigation equipment, extra ammo, cones, flares, anything for months of service. I didn't realize how much I miss them until now.
