... The paint crackle surface is inspiringly lovely -


Rather, inspiringly over-filled with bondo, me thinks. Check out the big divot near the rear window latch.

But who cares?! A nice patina overall, especially the stone damage on the front.

A real driver, not a garage queen!

It doesn't look like a factory color either. But, you never know.

I have a soft spot for the Caprice, my mom had one and I used to throw my BMX bike in the trunk without having to move any seats or take off a wheel.

My pop had one as well, hated it. No soft spot... though I definitely remember throwing my BMX bike in the trunk with room to spare.

Thank you sir - Nope no iPhone, I'm still stuck in the Blackberry era. But no fancy pants camera either, simple little Fujifilm point and shoot I picked up for $15 at a yard sale.

Chris - I lusted for a Countach as well, for my entire adolescence - flash forward 20 some years and I'm walking around the corner to check out a local car show - a white Countach was sitting near the back, unmistakable - and you can always tell the Fiero bodied replicar versions, this one was real. As I walked around it and talked with the owner I was utterly shocked at the lack of refinement, lack of fit and finish, lack of sophistication, terrible wire-paths in the engine bay, etc, then to hear it requires a $12K service every 10K miles.....wow. He told me sometimes the doors won't latch properly and don't stay closed and that the front bonnet always opens crooked. Handmade alright.

Here's another white one for you.

I remember a few lemon-law lawsuits over the Lambo Countach and Diablo. I always find it funny that people love the doors so much, because they were known to fail in both ways: locking closed or unable to latch. The locking closed must have been great pre-cel phone. Imagine yelling out of the too-small-to-escape-through windows to passerbys to call a locksmith.
