Here are a few pics of the '93 Brougham I picked up 2 weeks ago. 69K miles, 5.7 TBI:


When I got her:

It even has the factory CD player that still works! I am averaging 18 mpg during my daily commute.


Take care,
Elias

I love that color combo! Are you gonna do anything with the E&G Grille?

WOW thats sure is a clean one! really like the beige interior
what kind of a deal did you get, if you dont mind saying
I like the snappy throttle response on the tbi, they really leap off the line
nice score:worship:

Thanks!

The E&G grill is going to stay. I was going to take it off, but it looks ok.


I have ~$3,700 in it because it needed a new Radiator.


Weird thing is this '93 5.7 TBI feels much stronger than any of the '90-92 TBI Broughams I have owned.

Congrats! You made the right choice on the trade. What is the rear ratio (compared to the old ones)?

I kind of like it with the stocks and Vogues, especially since you have the other one... the SS wheels and Cad caps are nice, though...

Elias, is this your first '93 Brougham?

Thanks, I am really enjoying driving it. I think it was a good trade, especially since I got some cash plus the '93 Brougham for the Tahoe. The Tahoe started to get annoying, I couldn't drive it anywhere with a parking garage and the 9mpg w/ premium gas was horrid.


This is my first '93 Brougham. So far I have had two '96s, one '95, one '92, and two '91s.


I took the Vogues off because they rode terrible. They appear to be old and upon closer inspection, one of them has a bubble in the sidewall.

A bubble is an understatement. I just got back from Elias's house and that bubble is more like a tumor. He also let me drive it and it is a great car.

I also got a ride in the '96. Best car ride ever. :2thumbs: :D

Thanks for coming over JD. Your '90 Brougham is a great purchase! I love these Cadillacs, I can't get enough of them.

I should have taken traction control off on the '96, that would have been a more spirited ride ;)


Take care,
Elias

Superb acquisition. What a magnificent car. Do those Broughams have illuminated electroluminescent crests on the roof?

No. The only cars that had that were the '91-'93 Fleetwood Sixty Specials, which are based off the FWD DeVille chassis. Mine has the opera lamps on the B pillar (they work and look awesome at night) but they were discontinued for the '93 model year.

The funny thing is that the '92-96 Buick Roadmasters had the opera lamps....weird that they didn't put them on the Fleetwoods.

And after the Impala SS wheels w/Caddy centers & new Pirelli Pzeros:


Did you get the PZero Rossos? I am seriously considering getting those tires on my Impala SS wheels.

I got the Pirelli Pzero Nero M+S because of their high treadwear & Z speed rating. So far so good, only some slight road noise.

And after the Impala SS wheels w/Caddy centers & new Pirelli Pzeros:

Do the stock lug nuts off of the Cadillac work with the Impala SS wheels? I'm getting ready to put my Impala SS wheels on for the first time...

96Fleetwood

As long as the lug nuts are from an aluminum Cadillac wheel, they will work on the aluminum SS wheels.

The only lugs that do not work on the SS wheels are the ones that come on the 9C1 & standard steel wheels.

Post some pictures later!

Thanks! Actually this '93 was owned by a friend of mine. He gave me some cash & this '93 Fleetwood for my Tahoe. :thumbsup:

Thanks! Yes, it is Dark Cherry Metallic.

Also, you stated that the TBI in your `93 feels stronger than the TBIs in the 90-92 Broughams. Is it possible that your friend modified it, or is that extra strength from the factory?

Want to buy it ;) ?

I have been test driving newer cars the last two weeks. If I sell this Brougham, a Trailbalzer SS, G8 GT, GTO, or gen 1 CTS-V might be in store :cool2:

Already? That has to be a record. :) Have you even gotten the title in the mail yet?

A GTO with the 6.0 in it would be sweet.

The soda I was drinking just went all over the keyboard and monitor. That vehicle is insane. I had to stop for a second to get my bearings on how big a 572 cu in motor is. That's 9.4 litres. Going to go find it on Youtube now...

I have known about that car for a long time since I saw the video about a year ago. I never expected to see it on here for sale and I think that price is just a little high.

It's okay, this kind of turn around is pretty typical;)

There's always a few things desired, and when the deals work, they work. Elias and, now, I know this well.

I know I"m on the market for another late model Cad. I am almost through with my 4.9 Sedan Deville w/ 161k and finding out how much the struts will cost, I don't think I can stand it anymore. I have always kept my Cadillacs up, however, I refuse to put any more $ into this one.
