Here's a couple of pics of the 95 Brougham I just bought off eBay. 62K mi- 1 Owner-88yr old, always garaged in Cal. Just had the wheels chromed with new whites. Waiting for it to be picked-up in LA and brought to Texas. Hope to have it week after Xmas. Soooo, I'm "dreaming of a White Christmas"

Here's another pic of it on the showroom waiting to be picked-up.
And with the weather in Cal now, I hope it stays there until the truck arrives.
Below that is what I had to give up after owning 10 Vettes in the last 32 years...
Had to have something with ALOT better ride and ease of entry and exit.
VERY sad day last Thursday when the new owner drove off in it.
It was spec-ed out to a Z06 with an Auto 3:42 with 2400 stall

Got some great news! The car has been inside the showroom the entire time Cal was under seige by the torrential rainstorms and flooding. The dealer stated the building had some minor flooding with about an inch of water on the floor. The street and surrounding ares were completely under water.. AND ever better news, it will be picked-up on Mon for a Wed delivery next week. So now, I'm "dreaming of a white New Year's"

Here 'tis...arrived this AM all in one piece...
Very little detailing to do, once I got the light
dusting of road film washed-off.
Other than that, it's pretty much good to go and
get started doing "my thing"

I love how it makes the escalade look ordinary in comparison. That is one hell of a car.

Man that is clean, I like how the white makes the car look even more massive. And I have serious whitewall envy, what type of tires are those?

Thanks, the tires are "Broadway Classic" don't know who makes them.
Update: 12-31-10
Did some searching and it looks like Goodyear makes them...
Here's a link for anyone interested

Aonther one of rear angle...
I'm thinking when I get the windows tinted, they will all
be the same % tint to keep the clean, crisp look to the car

Awesomeeee! Youre gonna wanna put some better tires on that thing if you intend on going fast!

Great fuggin' choice!

And watch it with the tint, get legal so you dont get in trouble with the cops!

I just had to take all of my tint off because I kept getting pulled over in my blacked-out 96.... is now just a black 96. haha

WOW...didn't even notice that until you pointed it out.
Guess I was too busy eyeing the "pie in the sky" that it got past me....
All I was thinking was "just don't get anything screwed-up now"
after the 11 days of waiting for the arrival...
Oh I also have owned a couple El Dorados...
This 2002 I owned in 05
