Bump? Nobody else is interested in this? Here's your chance to build the most comprehensive catalog of Cadillac past, present and future... Sure, I'm going to have a hand in it as well - but I thought more people would be interested in having a hand at it..

Actually, ANYTHING to do with Cadillac.. It's supposed to be an encyclopedia.. I'd like this to be a means for people to submit anything they know about Cadillac.

I'll use brochures and that book I have entitled "Standard Catalog of Cadillac 1903-2000", and my service manual if I feel like getting really technical.

I like pics, but I swear I am going to read. Don't let my mother know that I swore.

Sure! I have a lot of writeups on the Fleetwood Brougham 94-96 V4P, can dig up the original 7000# tow package 71-76 (V72 I think), and of course the 93 V4P.

And anything else needed.... I have some 1986 Brougham dealer info too, and the 85 Fleetwood Brougham FSM.

Bad content can be disputed in real time and replaced. If the replaced data is incorrect, the old data can replace IT. It's the same way things work on WikiPedia.. You get content, you verify it, if it's correct, you leave it. If somebody comes along and replaces the correct content with bad content, you revert. When all is said and done, either good information will be there, or it will be replaced in a matter of time...

If it's copyrighted information, I'm not sure that would be a good idea..

Whenever you guys are ready. The platform is there and ready to be used...

Possibly contact Cadillac directly and ask them for thumbs up/thumbs down on the info. But document WHERE the info comes from would keep the legal issues out of it.

Just do you best to document your sources.

To post an image in the wiki, first you must upload it. On the left side of the wiki pages there is a section called toolbox. In it, there is a link called Upload file. Click it and upload your picture. To put the picture on a wiki page, use the following code: [[Image:Imagename.jpg|Alternate_text_here]], where Imagename.jpg is the "Destination filename" from your upload and Alternate_text_here is the text mouse over text.
