This happend in the winter and the car was cold, i didnīt wait for the front windshield to warm upp and it was fogy. Somone left that benz 190 on the side and i crashed into it :( but it was easy repair. I bought some replasement parts like fender and bumper and the front lights, but i think that benz need a lot more fixing :)

Here there be them pics...


Serves the dude right for leaving a Benz on the side of the road.

That Benz got totalled out. You might as well have got the euro clip.

^Why the Euro clip? Wouldn't that be just like leaving the car disfigured...

looks better than the 4 headlight setup:hide:

Any pictures of the repair?

Glad to hear no one was hurt and that your car's OK. Post pics of the repaired car! Enquiring minds want to know!

I wish this will be your last incident , glad no one was injured .

I find the disparity between your damage and the Benz to be amusing.

The first time I read that I thought you meant take the front end off the benz and put it on the cadillac.:eek: At least you'd have wipers on your headlights then.

Everyone is always going back and forth at this, has anyone ever posted a poll to see what the majority says?

Looks like a professional repair job! I guess the little piece that contains the fiber optic light monitors was wrecked. You should be able to find a new one easily at a junkyard or in the parts thread.

By the way, I really like the low stance your car has. It's just enough that it's noticeable, but not so low that you scrape the underside on every rock in the road.

What do you have for the suspension?

08-30-10, 10:57 PM
loving that low look to on stocks! Mine is lowered in the rear with air shocks, but leans to the left side more due to a bent spring that I haven't replaced.....

You can never tell that ride was involved in any accident

I am happy to see your ride looks as fantastic as it was before .I really like the way it sits too . If I were you , I would lower the Fleet too .

I'm sure someone will have the fiber optic trim piece and the correct turn lens for you...

What do you have for the suspension?

i have a proplem with the suspension, i just put 6,2 diesel under the hood and itīs so heavy that the suspension is too weak, itīs too soft when driving over speedbumps and uneven roads, any ideas how to fix that proplem??
I just installed new rear airshocks but havenīt connected the airpump, thatīs why the car is so low:)

Itīs originaly 4,1 V8 aluminum engine. That engine was terrible. the 6,2 gmc jimmy 1983 engine was taking space in my garage so i just put it in my deville and it workīs great :)

Some early 80s caddys came with a 5.7 diesel, maybe suspension parts for them will work. Otherwise you may have to go with a cargo setup. Definitely gonna need some different springs.
