Does anyone know of a classic cadillac forum? I feel like I'm in the wrong place. Everyone has newer cars. :(

And we're all a little jealous of you too.

You're not the only one!
I do like to read about all the problems they have with the newer cars though.

hey Liseckas,
I just read your signature! about the '85 300d turbo. My friend used to have a '80 240d and we actually rolled it one night! it flipped about three times and landed on the roof and we took out a whole lot of bushes and a tree in the process!!! Here is a link to the pictures we took of it:

If you took off and went somewhere else, then this would only be a contemporary cadillac forum, not for ALL cadillacs....... Stay here for a while and some experts on old cadillacs will show up......

This forum caters to all kinds. We're only 7 months old so be patient and we'll get more classic Cadillac owners in time...

Show up?...I've been here since March.....Caddy's of 30's, 40's and 50's are my specialty, but then there probably aren't too many member's in this forum that are interested in these cars.

I'm interested whatcha got?

I prefer the styling of the '40's and '50's (and '60's). The engineering of the '30's is very respected.

On those forums, they seem to ignore everyone with a post count less than 500!!

I don't have much at the moment to brag about, I didn't want to keep something that someone could enjoy more than myself. The only "antique" Caddy that I have now is my '51 coupe and I'm not driving it that much anymore either. If I get another crazy http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/images/smilies/screwy.gif (javascript:smilie(':screwy:'))idea in my head I may sell it too, but I think it would be less painful for me to cut off my arm.

Any wreck that you can walk away from is a good one! Isn't it amazing that you could still open most of the doors. I bet the car was still driveable afterwards.

Nah, water pump cracked open and the oil pan cracked in half. Basicaly the radiator and front of the car went into the engine. HAHA. tranny was fine though, and all the doors open.
