    No, I didn't get the ULTRA, because I wanted the white leather interior. ULTRAs only came with interiors of Grey, Navy, Dark Red & Black, none of which would have gone with my Deep Plum paint color.

    Thats to bad oh well, still a awesome car. I am so surprised though that they had power head rests and 3 position lumbar and all that also seat memory. I know the Allante's had that but, just seems so ahead of its time. Of course thats Cadillac, ahead of its time.

    The ULTRA Package seats picked up where the Allante's left off! I know the background about them. I've posted it somewhere on here before. The interesting theing (to me) about them is that allthough they were designed in Italy and licensed in Italy and copywrited in Italy, they were actually manufactured not only in the USA, but about 10 miles from my house, in Morristown, New Jersey ! (Who knew, back then ?) I learned that around 1995. I had to make the choice, and the White Leather was more important to me than the ULTRA seating package. I have no regrets, other than wondering why so much went into the seats (i.e. motors and servos and gears and switches) and in the end they only covered them in 3 leather covers for 89, 90 & 91 and then added black making 4 colors for 92 & 93. There were ALOT of exterior paint colors that one could not select, if they were opting for the $3,500.00 extra interior. I think it would have sold a bit better, if all paint colors had been available with it.

    I don't have a picture, but since you are in NJ you could come over & see it in person GSP Exit # 148.

    This is from Jacob Hoppe's website. He & I own 1993 Sixty Specials that we really care for. His is the Slate Green over Slate Green with Neutral leather and mine is Dark Plum over Dark Plum with White Leather. Jacob has a very good camera, and I don't! This is stolen from his web-site. It's taken at night, but trust me, it's on the "C" pillar.

    It's a subtle blue-ish light. The wreath is not illuminated, only the crest. There is no bulb in it. It's Electro-Luminescent. It's actually a strip of paper inside that when electro-ed it glows very potently. For more explanation, type Electroluminescent into GOOGLE and you can read about the technology behind it.

    Here's another example: It's a form of Neon, but not.....
    Here's a room without a single electrical outlet. Everything pictured is Electroluminescent!

    Right, it's the same crap in my opera lights that I replaced and died again a week later. F'in things, I wanna replace them with some suitable substitute that won't have to be surgically removed, maybe LED's. If someone knows how to do this let me know, I'm dyin' to get those to work.

    Not a Coupe. They built ONE (1) Coupe for 1993. I do know that it's "Dark Cherry" {Burgundy} with matching cloth interior....

    Sounds like something I'd like, but the mileage is probably higher than I'd like. What's on it?

    I noticed that the make up mirrors in the back seat were EXCLUSIVE to the sixty special...the Fleetwood I am thinkin about getting has those in the back. Does it make it a sixty special? It has everything except the sunroof. It has twice the options my old 89 Deville had. LoL I will flip out if I can get this car for 2000 bones. I might just sell it for 6000 and get me a decent car I really want.

    I need to know the YEAR of the car you are looking at. Sixty Specials were made in 1987 thru & inclusive of 1993, or for 7 model years. They are extremely rare !!!!
