This is just one VERY SWEET example of what can be done with a CVPI. I'm looking at a white 2005 CVPI out of Iowa with 97K on the clock for only $3K. The XJ's are at least 4 years older, twice as many miles, and much worse shape, going for at least $1500 more... So it looks like I'll be driving one of these... but who knows?

Lol. Relax! I'm not a grammar Nazi! It is sexy. What mods do you not understand?

The 5.4L swap in this car is becoming more common, but more often people looking to really build these cars just swap in a DOHC Mustang 4.6 with forced air and junk. Really easy. Personally, I think the front is ugly with the crap sticking out of the hood. There are cowl induction hoods that could cover it way better.

I'm trying to buy one of these next summers. I love these cars, a few bolt on parts and your already at 500hp. I'd take one of these over an import any day of the week

I've owned a 98 CVPI, or P71 as they can be referred to also. It was simply the best car I've owned. Really! So easy to work on and maintain, tons of room, not slow, and can be made to look quite nice. Add to that there are literally TONS of aftermarket and mod capabilities, I'm surprised they're not more popular.

I'm looking at 2 different cars right now:

1 2K5 w/97K miles for $3K
1 2K3 for a grand! Still waiting for the call back on this one to see hoe many miles, etc.

I've learned of 3 places that recondition these cars. They go over them with a fine-toothed comb and replace EVERYTHING that needs to be and always put new tires:

Wisconsin: www.usedcopcars.com
Illinois: www.chicagomotors.com
Michigan: No website yet, but they deal by phone and in person.

Just because all of these places are in the north does not mean their cars come from the same area, in fact, the MI company emphatically states NONE of their cars come from Detroit! lol

The 2003/5 I'm eyeballing are white. There are a few black ones for sale in MI and WI, but they are 2004's and more expensive.

You first! lol
Actually, I have a few different schemes I would go with. I'll try to write them up in a few...

I'm going to run back to the other computer and print that photo and see if we can work with that.

What year? color? I know much more about the CVPI than I do the Caprice.




If you are not going to buy that car? can you get the info to me in a PM? I REALLY need a car to get to work.
