About “Madeira”

I've always liked big cars. They are more comfortable than smaller ones and today they just aren't as common. Personally, I like coupes better than sedans, so when this '84 Caprice coupe came along - CHEAP! - last summer when gas was over $4.00 around here, I couldn't pass it up. It looks and rides like new!

About “Impala SS”

I was in high school when these big ol' hot rods came out. The other guys wanted Ricers, but THIS is what I wanted! It's big, it's bold, it makes a statement.
