The Chevy Caprice PPV Is An Australian RACE CAR Playing Dress Up As A COP CAR

I flew to Chicago for the week to hang out with @LegitStreetCars. He dug out his Caprice PPV and said here, have fun. I had no idea just how fun it would be... an absolute monster of a GM Zeta platform car, built by Holden, crazy loud, and it still looks like a cop car. No one knows what to think about it when you drive by. It's in the LS family, it can run E85 out of the box, the handling is very predictable, and the interior delivers exactly what it needs to with nothing extra. Unfortunately we won't be seeing anymore cars like this, Holden is no longer with us.

I use to buy police cars at state auctions and have fun with them. I use to go through tires like water. So fun spooking people coming up behind them.

I followed this build on Alex's channel, loved it , but if it was mine I'd get rid of the cop stuff on it and go 1 solid color and flow with the grandpa's grocery getter theme.Honestly that might make it better than a corvette.

That is not stock exhaust, or something has been done to it. Those things barely sound at all when they are in factory trim, until you really get into it...

I've got an 06 Police Impala. It's fun, but it's only the V6 version. Parts are pretty fairly priced though. And it's got the column shifter. The Police Caprice on the other hand is not one I'd want to own. Because the parts come all the way from Australia, they are very expensive. Most of what it needs you can't get at a typical auto supply store aside from the basics. Bulbs, oil, brakes, ETC.

Too bad about the "hey look at me" exhaust system. Its really too loud for an adult's street car and on a trip the noise is going to get obnoxious real quick. Other than that you have to love it. Quick, comfortable, great handling, and built to take a beating. Plus that cop car look.

@5.30 ish - I bet the "Auto" lights are disabled on all PPVs so that they can "go dark" by default... if they're sitting somewhere and need to be inconspicuous it'd make sense they want to be able to start the car and get up and go without the headlights on at all, if need be - rather than forcing them to set turn off the lights every time.... not sure it's a fact, but makes sense in my brain at the moment... @WatchJRGo

Holden was also good at clean engine bays. Check out the GTO. Amazing arrangement stuffing a big engine in there with plenty of room to work on it.

"Not into cars that aren't fully loaded" well you have fun spending every dollar you have replacing stupid electronics and crap, that's just more things to break and stuff that costs a ton. Give me a simple cd player, a good sounding exhaust and a comfy cloth seat and im good. I dont even mind crank windows. My dodge ram has power windows and cruise and that's the most I need. Hope all is well, stay safe. All electric vehicles are trash. I'll take my gas guzzling beast any day.

When JR is.talking to the roller owner at LS Fest there are two Commadores with a nice LS noise. NICE Good times when you see a, 1967 monaro The Kingsword wagon VT Commodore (gto) LC torrana Torrana Sandmam But the.Torrana concept, just makes me feel sick, 253 and the whole 9 yards, a door shut before it began. PS recommend a web binge, The Skid Factory, iron lion kingswood

Also known down under as the Statesman WM model. It is a little bit longer than a G8 and SS. Great car, and yes the power is detuned out of these. It runs a ZL1 fuel pump, ZL1 axle shafts, the block is essentially an LS2, but the ones that come with the 823 cast heads are from the LS3. Port and polish those bad boys and you can have quite a machine on your hands. The rear gear is a 2.92, great if you are going to boost it, but I changed mine to 3.27 from a 5th Gen Camaro SS. These Zeta Platform cars are great to cannibalize at the junk yard, because the parts just fit! Only down side is the weight. Nothing a little trimming can't help. Ive dropped over 200lbs from the interior on mine. Seats are the next upgrade which will save 25lbs per seat. Great car and glad you did a first impression video.

Q: What's E85? Here is Australia we have E10 which is 90% petrol 10% ethanol. Does E85 mean 85% ethanol? Or do you measure the other way around and its 15% ethanol? Thanks
Cousin Eddie
Cousin Eddie 4 ամիս առաջ
In the US, 85% ethanol fuel and 15% gasoline or other hydrocarbon by volume. The exact ratio of fuel ethanol to hydrocarbon may vary. The allowable ethanol content in E85 ranges from 51% to 83%. that's why people sometimes test the content, over a week, before buying. This is to ensure the fuel is somewhat consistent. I just tuned it out of my car.

Man I did an Internship for a company that interacts heaps with (or used to..) with GM/Holden here in Melbourne, Australia. I got to visit their test track and there was so much wasted potential there after manufacturing shut down here 5 or so years ago. Now It's owned by Vietnam's Vinfast. Not a bad thing, just a shame to see the end of an era.

The head unit isn't MyLink, Holden designed and built that here in Aus and called it "Holden IQ" - only available in the series 2 VE/WM models for a few years before they finally gave in and admitted MyLink was just better and introduced it in the VF/WN models.
