    Just thought I would say hello to everyone here.

    I've had a thing for wagons for quite sometime now and finally picked one up about 2 1/2 years ago, I like the B-Body GM wagons. Mine is a '91 Chevy Caprice with a lil 305, some of the mods I've done are adding a cold-air intake from a Caddy and sewer pipe, shaved all the moldings and painted door handles, lowered a couple inches and added some polished Ultra 17x9 and 17x9.5 wheels. So what do you think?

    Well the sewer pipe mod is a throttle body hat that's from a Caddy that fits my throttle body perfect with alot less restriction. The Caddy hat comes with a rubber sleeve that you can mount a 3" piece of 'sewer pipe' from Home Depot, I added a 45 degree elbow, then a K&N cone filter. All this cost less than $30 and increased HP and throttle response and also when you floor it it sounds very cool! Kinda like the ole 4-Barrels kicking in! Not my ride but very similar.

    Welcom XLG 1 (Steve)!

    Nice Caprice wagon! White is a good clean color for that car. I like it.
    Of course, the rims made a huge difference!
