    If you're going big, you might as well get the BIGGEST, and that's the Fleetwood Brougham.

    Re: Towncar vs. Brougham

    i owned the roadmaster, and for the most part the interior of the fleetwood and roadie are similiar if not the same, and i hated how long the dash was on the roadie, so i dont think i'll ever go for the fleetwood brougham...unless it was a 1971-76 model..those are cool

    The only years where I would even consider buying a Town Car are the years where the HT4100 were standard in the Fleetwood Broughams. I could see 93s as well if you didn't like the styling, and maybe even 94-96s if you didn't care about power. But other than that Fleetwood Brougham > Town Car.

    Re: Towncar vs. Brougham

    I definitely prefer the Broughams looks, but since I've never ridden in a TC, coming from a Cadillac family, its hard to say. I like the early to mid 80s TC better than the late 80s (the straight back instead of the slanted) and agree that it would probably be a better choice than the HT4100 Brougham or even the 368 considering that engine's problems. One thing I do like about the Town Car are the sharper corners on the car, especially in front (and in the early 80s TC, in the back as well). The Caddy has the sharp tailights but the front end is flat, no sharp corners to the right and left of the hood like the TC. I like those corners, makes the car bigger looking, I think. I dislike the '90+ Town Cars in comparison to the 80s models.


    From where I sit now though, Cadillac wins out...it's bigger, it's a Cadillac, and somehow it just seems superior, even though I like the old TC's looks too.
