Here's a few shots of my '79 CDV from a car show this weekend (Chocowinity NC). Show was rained out towards the mid-afternoon. I got another trophy for one of the top 50 cars. Will post a few other pics shortly, including a couple other Caddys.

Thanks Ben. Would have been cool to see your Phaeton there! I'm in eastern NC, in otherwords, the boondocks.

Hey, we're not that far from each other! Somehow I never noticed that. It'd be cool to see the two coupes together if there was a show somewhere in between. 1979 all over again, haha.

highway you running true duals? if so what muffler

It's a modified "Hooker" system (16810HKR) designed for Chevy "Monte Carlo S/S" and Buick Regal "Grand National" cars, with a Corvette style "bolt-in" catalytic converter (Magnaflow 93440, 3" in/out). The mufflers are Walker "Quiet-Flow" with 2 1/2" offset in/out (22393), as used on some police cars I believe. I did the system myself, and it was something of a PITA. But it flows great and isn't loud, sounds just right. Original Y-pipe has been modded. Not any good muffler shops in my area. If there was, I would just have had something done from scratch. I didn't go with true duals because I didn't want to monkey with the crossover support.

You have a beautiful CDV. I have a 77 myself. You wouldn't happen to have any pictures of the inside, would you?

Thanks. Here's one from the show, and one of the engine. The car only has 9,000 miles on it, so that has a lot to do with its condition.
