Rapido's Chevrolet Caprice @ Taco Bell?
Author: wheel_slip

Captured one of Rapido's new Chevrolet models at the drive-thru at the local Taco Bell.

These models are pretty sweet. I black washed the grill on this one and as soon as I set it down, it took a run for the border....

What model year is that?  I think NY had some state cop cars that were Caprices.

That looks really good with the photo blown up. In HO size it must be exquisite.

The packaging says "early 80's" but it could easily be a 1977 onward, according to my Tad Burness "American Car Spotters Guide".

While the body style is correct for 1977 to 1990, details such as headlights and taillights are specific to 1980 through 1985 year models.

That's a beauty shot! 

When I would see Taco Bell ads growing up I never understood why someone would want to go to Buffalo for Mexican food....

True story! :-D

I've like Taco Bell food. I moved to California at age 7 and my uncle opened a Taco Bell at that time, 1967. Been eating it ever since. His didn't have a dining room or drive thru, just a patio with walkup windows.

That's when it was actually real food.
