I normally check the Craigslist ads on a daily basis, but I didn't in the last few days and it cost me.

I really wanted it, I like the color and the clean engine bay. :crybaby::crybaby::crybaby::crybaby::crybaby:

That'd been a good price, and bet I could've gotten it down too. Oh well.

A very reasonable price. I like the interior.

That is a good price for a d'Elegance.. but it appears to have the 5.0?

I will be selling my '91 w/ the 5.7 soon... same color ;)

That was a great deal, but others will come along. It seems like every few months there is an amazing car for an amazing price in my local Craigslist. About a week ago there was a '86 Fleetwood Brougham on there that was white with white leather pincushion seats (real white, not that cream white) and a red dashboard with white/red accents on the door panels and carpeting. It looked freakin amazing. Had 84,000 miles and was on for $6K, but I could have talked it down a bit.

He emailed me and told me it was sold. I like to get cars at $3k or less. This generally leave room for flipping. :D
I guess there will be others. But that was a one-owner, nothing hidden like some of these 4th-owners try to do.

Isnt the cream white the Cotillition white, cause I think my 84 was painted real white over a darker white which was probably the Cotilltion white, which I kinda like. The bright white makes the top look yellowish

The bumper is great! Much better than the old one . I have cleaned it all up ,opened it up and put some rust protectant on the inside so hopefully that will protect it. I will put it on as soon as I repaint the car, maybe next spring. Right now it is hibernating in my basement along with the wire wheels I bought from 1990CaddyBrougham. Just need some center caps.

Chris, My 90 is Cotillion white you are refering to. They had a Creamish colored yellow, but very noticable compared to the white. Your car may have been painted a different shade of white, from the original.
