    You know, if I could just get that larger-than-life chrome grill cap, that'd finish off my '97 SDV.

    Re: '98 & '99 Fleetwood Limited

    Of all the ones that I've seen either in person, or on E-Bay, that's the first one with the optional grille cap that I've seen ON the chrome grille! I have seen 2 on units equipped with the "Concours" Pkg. featuring the black out grille and chrome Cadillac wreath & Crest in the grille's center. I like it beter with the black-out grille, than on the chrome grille.

    Re: '98 & '99 Fleetwood Limited

    I hear you Sandy - I bought a used '98 concours grille for my '97 SDV and then pried off the older crest/wreath emblem and epoxied the newer "Arts/Science logo into the centre portion. some people think it looks weird as I also have the newer emblem on the hood, but I don't really care - prefer the newer emblem over the older one any day - replaced all of them on my car within the first coupla months of owning it.

    I plan to repaint the car sometime over the next year or so (thinking of going with a newer GM colour called "ice blue" and may even get it done in acrylic enamel as opposed to the bc/cc system - better durability) and will probably remove the hood ornamament and fill it in but for the time being, it is what it is,,,,,

    Yes, horrible sound, isn't it? Actiually, I saved my originality-anal-retentativeness for my 1972 Mustang coupe with 39,740 original miles (photos attached) - that one is bone stock.

    But for this '97 Caddy, I want to have a bit of fun and set it up the way I know I''ll enjoy it - and if that means re-jigging some of the General's thoughts and ideas, then so be it.

    Re: '98 & '99 Fleetwood Limited

    Yes Sandy, she does major duty holding down the floor of my garage in the pleasant months, then takes on the challenge of holding down another piece of concrete in a heated/secure facility at the edge of town during the nasty climes. She gets maybe 250-500 miles/year passing under her flanks, and that's on a good season.

    That license plate is prophetic in that when I bought her from the original owner on July 1st, 1989 and whom I had known since he brought the car home August 25, 1971, he sold this car to me for,,,,,,,,,,,are you ready for this?,,,,,,,,,,,,,,$200 bucks, or roughly the cost of 150 JARS of beer at my favorite watering hole. Mind you, I put a Hell of alot into her to bring her back to her current state of glory, but back then, $200 bucks was unheard of. $2,000 bucks maybe, but $200? Never. But, it did.

    That license plate was not a vanity plate, nor ordered especially for me - it was just picked from the pile by the lady behind the counter.

    Sandy:

    I have a question about the Fleetwood limited. Did it have a longer wheelbase than a standard DeVille in 1998 and 1999? I am almost 6' 10" and I would track one of these cars down if they were longer than a regular deVille.

    I'm curious. What does your height have to do with how long the wheelbase is?

    I'd say the wheelbase has to be longer since the rear wheel well is obviously farther behind the rear doors than on a DeVille (as my son says, the FL has an "extra piece" between the rear door and the rear wheel well).

    For the record, I'm 6'8". I bought a couple Fleetwood Limiteds so the person who sits behind me (my daughter) has legroom.

    Yes, it's longer, but all the add'l. interior room is in the rear. Legroom in the front remains the same as a regular DeVille.

    BUt like he said, it gives the person behind him more legroom when he has his seat further back.
