Cool If I had A Caprice

I'd want mine to look something like this
Using paint on my computer and a couple of hours I modified a Caprice,




Chop top, lowered, bumpers brought in, shaved door handles, and side pipes. Couldn't find any pictures of dog dish hubcaps on steel wheels I could use on it

My first impression was the missing Rolls Royce grill but the side pipe doesn't work with a Rolls (can you imagine having to explain to the Queen why she burnt her leg on an exhaust pipe running by the lower door sill.

I like it the only thing the side pipes are a bit too big around should use the side pipes like the put on the 49 50 merc's I would do that to my 71 Imp. I would also add some tear drop spot lights.

I agree on the side pipes, there really wasn't many pictures of them I could use though believe it or not

It looks nice, but it also looks like the chrysler 300c

That's because the 300C is a Bently clone; and as everyone knows a Bently is just a Rolls Royce car that was hot rodded by another car maker to be faster and have higher performance (just like Don Yenko hot rodded factory Camaros, he didn't build the car just the power it makes). Which brings me back to my initial observation; it looks like a Rolls with the chopped top.
