The idle was adjusted to something a little higher. This way we can avoid fouling out the plugs. We were just about to go into McDonalds for some breakfast when I thought about video taping the car as a 360 view. We are going to slowly see some changes in the future on this car. We are looking at a 9 inch rear end and to add on top of that, going to put on rear disk breaks. You won't find to many caprices in that year with disk breaks on the back.

The caprice was seeming a little rolly around corners and just plan driving. So Dad went and picked up some shocks. These shocks allow for a stiffer stance and also a better feel of the road. For all of you caprice lovers out there, these might be the next best things for your car. Suspension is everything when it comes to a performance car and the caprices are known for there rolly-polly drive...they were built for comfort and it will take a lot to make it performance.

Here is a picture of the shocks that were placed on the car.

Passing a Semi

I started out gentle but you can tell that the car was spinning the tires because the tire finally hooked up and had a little squeak and then I slowly gave it more gas. The raod was a little bit damp so I was trying to keep the car from spinning.

I also tried to keep the car under 75mph because the cops were out that day and we didn't want to chance it.

I had to be careful with the gas because with the road a little wet the car had no problem spinning the tires. This is a short video of us driving. There is another video of us on the highway passing a semi truck while trying to obey the speed limits.
