: Closest thing I've seen to my brougham!

...I almost shat myself when I saw this. It's a 1988, and a D'Elegance, and the top is dark grey vinyl, no gold... and it lacks the cool factor that is exclusive to mine :cool2: but it looks so much like my Brougham did in years past. And it's in Jacksonville, for $650 buy it now... Damn I wish I had cash. It'd be a great color-matching parts car.

Curse Cadillac and those damn filler panels. These cars would have been so much better without them.

Heh, thats what the '89 looked like before the filler panels were replaced.

It is a rare color too... I wonder if that car has been in Jacksonville most it's life? maybe that light grey was a "Florida color" as the '89 was bought in Ft. Lauderdale.

Actually the inteiror is the same color too, thats even more uncommon... lotta nice swappable parts there, like the seats (just add black piping ;) ) too bar it wasn't running.

I was going to post this with the original thread, but I had to get my pics in order. These are just a few other Broughams that I've seen around the net that have various charactoristics that reming me of the '89. None are quite the same though... (the first one is beautiful)

IIRC, this one was also advertised and being a dealer add-on 'Gold Edition'. hmm..

These cars look so much better with the waterfall grille isntead of the eggcrate version... so easy to change tho..... wonder why they kept going back and fourth.
