I haven't posted any photos recently of my 1976 Fleetwood 75 Limo and I took some recently wtih my almost-new digital camera. So here are some. I've owned it since 1999. Black leather front seat and black crushed velour rear seat. It does have the rear radio controls which was an option. The odometer reads about 97,000 miles.http://i9.tinypic.com/67dmm9f.jpg

Now that's what a Limo should look like. Modern cars just ain't got the right lines for the classic Limo look.

Good point. It would be scary to see what a modern Cadillac limo would look like.

There's a few of them. They look like funeral coaches. Especially, the 94-96 Fleets. :crybaby:

Beautiful Fleetwood!

I should have bought my Father's '75 Fleetwood 75 Limo, it was mint:

He gave it away for $5,800 dollars.. it only had 80K original miles.

I remember driving it from where the original owner lived in Memphis, TN all the way back to Virginia Beach, VA... making 12 mpg out of the 500 cubic inch motor and all that weight!

No, I should have bought your Father's '75 Fleetwood 75 Limo! What happened to it? Who bought it?

That does look nice; those big Seventy-Fives sure are unique.

I also once got 12.5 mpg on a moderate-distance freeway drive.

I sold it for him on eBay about 2 years ago. It went to a collector in Vermont.

I know that Cadillac has made newer ones as well, but people don't care for the stretched FWD northstars.

BTW, mine pull 22MPG at 75+ MPH on the road. The LT1 is hardly working at this speed.

PS: that '76 75 is awesome.

Actually, I kind of like that one.
When I said modern, I meant something like a limo made from one of those silly-looking CTSs or XLR or whatever they're called now.

That '76 is awesome I just love how they seem so unapologetic yet stylish.
As for the present day ones, well the Secret Service have used stretched fleetwoods and devilles to carry presidents, we see them on TV and they still look allright but not as good as the 70's ones

The newer limos almost look cooler than the older limos. I guess you got to have one of each.
