Build - From Start to Finish

Purchased in Post Falls, Idaho in April 2012; Originally an Oregon farm truck, it had only 58,000 original miles when we found it.  The gear ratio is so low that the max speed is about 45 mph (perfect for us since that is Sitka's max speed limit too), but you can literally put it in granny gear and it will be your hiking buddy going up any hill while idling.  It's Caprice's sure-footed "winter" driver.  It was the "fastest build" to date....In less than a week it was at it's first car show...and that's after it had been completely torn apart!
