: Has this ever happened to you? It's kinda weird.

So a long time ago I had a 1990 Cadillac Brougham, sold it.

Then I got Cadillac-hungry and went out and bought a '91 Coupe Deville, sold it.

Then I bought a '92 Deville after that, gave it to my Mom.

Then I bought a '92 Brougham d'Elegance, just sold it a couple days ago.


Then I found this on Craigslist!

It's my old '90 Brougham! I'd know it from a mile away. The discoloring of the steering wheel, the rip in the armrest, the off-center Heritage badge. It's so weird seeing my old car for sale again. I'm half-tempted to go buy it back for nostalgia's sake. But I know I know I could do better with the money, besides I really KNOW what's wrong with her in all the odd places. :D

So that was weird for me. Has anyone ever seen one of their old cars for sale? Kinda makes you sad, ya know? seeing something that used to be yours.

That's her when I had her. She's even in the 2008 Cadillac Calendar.

And there she is on Craigslist:

They added some tint and ripped off the window visors (they never had the clips and would fall off if you opened the window! :shhh:), but that is definitely her!

There was a story in the local newspaper about 4 months ago of a 65 year old man who tracked down his old '65 impala that he sold back in 1974 and bought it back again. He said it still had the holes under the dash from where he mounted a CB radio.

I once test drove a '72 Bonneville in Cincinnati, and reluctantly let it go. I wound up buying the very same car a year later from a guy in Alabama after I spotted it on eBay.

I then sold her a year after that. I miss it every day.
