Considering???? I'd be on his porch with cash in hand. I just paid $5000 for one with 57,000 miles and better paint but $2500 would buy you a good paint job.

I dunno if GM switched to clear coat or not for the '90 RWD cars....

But if thats Lacquer paint, then check the various "project" threads.... rubbing/polishing compound will make that paint like new again.

If its clear coat, and the clear is fading/peeling, then its new paint job time.

But, its clean, low miles and a nice interior.... go for it!

Yeah, don't miss out on that one.

For $2500 you could either have that low mileage 350 Brougham, which is in great shape, or my '92 deVille with 140k miles on it, and it's in pretty good shape.

Take the Brougham, I know I would if it was between those two.

My 90 (built in 11/89) has lacquer paint.

Yeah, looks like a good deal to me too, unless in person there's a lot of cosmetic problems or mechanical issues. If a little of both, still not a bad price.

Plus, it's not beige, white, or blue...no offense to any that are, but at least it's a tad less common. Well, just a tad less.

Heh, only 7 months newer then mine :)

In that case, Turtle Wax rubbing compound, followed by Turtle Wax polishing compound, followed by your choice of normal wax will make an old weathered lacquer paint job look new again!

Is it sage green, Im not sure if they made them in 1990 but it looked tripple green which would suggest it to be a sage green caddy

Oh, on my screen it looks gray. Plus I don't think they made a sage in 1990.
