“CAPRICEOUS”

Capriceous 1991 Chevy Caprice Wagon

Have you ever been to an ISCA (International Show Car Association) show? If not put it on your list to do. I showed a few times many years ago and got a great appreciation for the people who really get into it. Tony Allers (owns the Smokey Yunick Fiero from a prior Blog) has a Championship Car that he built in his home garage!

This is what one multi-award winning ISCA Show Car started as!

The vehicle was originally a Nashville Fire Department station wagon which was purchased in June 1999 by Tony and Diane Allers.  The car had a Fire Department history and they always knew it would have a subtle fire theme.   After 9-11-01, the direction became very clear.They wanted to make the car tasteful, classy, respectful and unique.  Fabricating almost everything themselves. EVERY part of the car has been changed, modified, or re-fabricated.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys.
