Re: 90-92 Brougham or 93-96 Fleetwood
90-92s were the last of the classic styling, 93-96 were the "whale bodies" and styling is always subjective. The LT1 in 94-96s is a much better engine than the older 350s and put the 305 to shame. I like both the old and newer styling so I'd let the LT1 make the decision and go with a 94-96 if I were in the market. However if I were looking to swap a 500 in that would again even things out, I'd probably let price make the decision then and go with an older model.
Well judging by the aesthetics of the two cars, i would go with the '90-92 because they are the last "true cadillacs". From what i understand, they're like riding on a cloud, (wallowy), have finger easy steering (no road feel what so ever) and are easy smooth cars (not all that fast for a V8) but i love the exterior design and i like the interior design more than the '93 thru '96 models the advantages i see in the '93-'96 generation are the LT1, and the heated leather seats, and other modern advantages ( traction control, 4L60-E Transmission, and it's got great looking alloy rims)
So my conclusion: LT1 or LS1, LS6 350 in a 1991 Brougham D'elegance, install some heating wires in the seats, and maybe a tranny that could handle the power. Preferably black exterior, black roof, and tan leather.
