Eventually, Eric repainted the car and had Mike Lamberson stripe it. After the Caprice was cleared, it sat in the garage for another year. Eric still had the Road Master, which was his focus until he sold it in April of 2008. He replaced it with a 1992 Lincoln Town Car, with the Caprice sitting in the garage. Finally, after several of his fellow Traffic Car Club members urged him to finish the Caprice, he regained his desire to finish it. In December of 2009, Chino at Dreamworks in Montclair, California ripped the vinyl top off and added Black Candy patterns. After the patterns were completed, California Upholstery redid the interior in Grey vinyl and suede in one day. Yes, you read right; one Day.
There was simply no stopping Eric now. He set a goal of giving the Caprice a proper debut at the 2010 Majestics New Year's Day Picnic at Santa Fe Dam. After finishing up the trunk and engine, Eric took his first cruise in the Caprice to the picnic, where he was rewarded with lots of thumbs ups and compliments. Eric has since sold the Town Car, so that he can devote all of his time to the Caprice, which he nicknamed, "Tru Devotion." Eric has certainly shown his "Tru Devotion" to complete this build not only for himself, but for his club as well.
