That blue one is amazing, but this would turn heads too! Plus you get an Astroroof... and the better 307. I really love the look of this car.

nice but still too expensive for my taste...my '87 may not be "show room" quality but I only paid a grand for it and none of these can hold a candle to her IMO

I saw that one too. I actually really like that car. I spend a lot of time driving my grandfather's '88 Brougham that was that exact color combo. His wasn't nearly as well optioned though.

It would be a bargain at half the price.

Anyone know what the name of that color is?

One of the first cars I looked at was an '85 Fleetwood Brougham and it was that color. For '85 I think it was called Laredo tan, but in '88 the color is either Cream Beige or Light Beachwood.

But I can't wait to start the restoration on my Brougham... See if I can't make it look as nice as these other two.

Light Beachwood sounds fitting, thanks Sven. The '88 Brougham my grandfather had is the car that sealed my affection for Cadillacs so I have a soft spot for that color. Well his '88 and the '92 SDV my parents had.

I like this colour more than the blue one. WAY too overpriced for my Paddy Blood, but STILL a GREAT price.

Do we all do this? I was on Ebay the other day looking through the Broughams and laughed about the working opera lamps on the blue one, now I see two threads devoted to two more Ebay Broughams.

The '89 FWB I have is the exact same color scheme, it's called Beechwood Light ... which reminds me of a beer for some reason :D

Man that is purdy. Its funny how I normally hate that eggcrate grill for that year, but I guess I've never seen one that wasn't faded. That grill actually looks really nice, but I still prefer the vertical bar grill.

That being said, the color combo isn't nearly as stunning as Mr. Garrett's car(or my car, even though mine isn't nearly that immaculate).

Beech beer, perhaps?

It was sold for $12,900. Maybe the owner will show up on the forum some day.
