You want the LT1. Don't settle for anything less.

Many would argue that the later '95's are the best cars to buy.

Wow, thats great. By the end of the week Im going to have about $200.00 bucks in hand extra, plus the $4,000.00 my mom has.

There are currently two Fleetwood's at a local Cadillac dealer, but they are over $10,000.00 a piece, one is a 96, the other a 95, one has 68k miles, the other around 40k miles.

By the way guys, 0-60 for the non LT1 5.7 ltr is 10.5 seconds, which isnt bad, I'd be competing with Crown Vic's at that rate, I think the Escort takes about 11 or 12 seconds. Gas is going to suck, but good side its regular fuel, its not that big a deal.

Im not going to feel all that bad for taking the price down on that '93 Fleetwood. :coolgleam

Guess the different body made them slower for 1993. The 1990-1992 5.7L ones were under 10 seconds.

Hey,

Do you still have that Fleetwood? If so, I would be interested in taking the entire thing for parts, I would arrange having it picked up or shipped out.

I am planning on buying a '93 Fleetwood more then likely, and it will be great to have parts for it. I live in the Tampa, FL area by the way. Thanks. -Byron

sorry for the delay... i ve been gone for a month... i still own the remains... insurance settlement negotiations havent even begun but i understand the insurance company will want to sell it for salvage to subrogate their loss... i m just learning about how this all works... will pass on what i find out... but i dont have the expertise nor storage to part it out myself...

The insurance company should offer you two settlements (presuming they declare the care totaled), one where they keep the car and one where you keep the car, but get less money. You may have to ask them for the second offer (where you keep the car). Also, you don't have to accept their first offer. You can negotiate.

I had a '63 SDV which caught on fire (fuel leak near the distributer). After a bit of negotiation, I took the settlement where I kept the car and then I sold it for more than the difference between the two offers. HTH.

note the roof is deformed and the right passenger door(s) are sprung... also the left rear wheel is at an "unusual" angle..
frankly i thought body on frame would withstand an impact somewhat better .. and maybe it did 'cause i noticed that the front end damage was slight and at the scene it didnt appear that the car was actually moved by the impact ... that it was just a "lurch" into the bumper of the car parked in front ...
by the way the ins adjustor wrote the front end up as "prior damage" and lowered the value... apparently he didnt even read the accident report...
adding insult to injury -->when i went to remove the personal posessions i opened the trunk and discovered the full service spare and wheel had been replaced with one of those temp spares ... might be able to track down where and when that happened as both Geico and State Farm adjusters should have it on an inventory made when they declared it totalled ... a descrepancy could pin point the time and place...

Bummer, sorry for your loss. Definately don't settle for a non LT1 and take the time to lookk, you can get a good one for under $4K. I got my 1994 FWB with every option minus the full size spare, moonroof and chrome wheels for $3800 (posi too, but that wasn't available with traction control from what I have read). It was even a factory V4P car (aka, 7000# towing package) which is awesome for power with factory 3.42's. V4P cars get worse mileage, for me that is 18.5 to 22.5 average combo city/highway. I'm not afraid to step on it, and do often and get that. That includes AC on too, running 10% ethanol fuel and not, no apprectiable difference in power or fuel economy. I drive 550-610 miles a week just to get to work and back, so I am getting a good feel on what affects mileage on this car.

I hate to ask, but with that damage, it almost looks still drivable!

Did the rear axle get hurt at all? Considering a 45 mph offset impact, that is a vote of confidence on the safety of the car. Think of it this way, it isn't so much the damage, was there any passenger compartment intrution? What shape would the passengers be if they were there? (I HOPE no one was in there!!) The car needs to absorb the impact and not allow any damage to the inside people. Most of the newer cars do ok, but no really all that well, as most cars have the front wheel (in frontal offset barrier) impact and intrude into the passenger compartment. This isn't good at all.

Whats the interior like? Is it the dark wood? I need the 2 peices of door trim that the small speakers are mounted in. The one that surounds the door handles. Mine both have broken clips on the back the the lock buttons fall into the door.

I am also interested in the driver side power seat control trim, same problem. Clip underneith is broken and the control falls into the door when you press on it.

Thanks

Yea, Usually if the Insurace company totals a car, it will get picked up and brought to a salvage yard/auto auction (not a junkyard) where it will be sold for whatever they can get for it in this case..

Usually junkyards and body shops can get parts cars from here, or a dealer with a dealers licnese.

I work in a body shop and see cars go to the auction all the time In some cases the car isnt valued at much and the owner can keep it, just because its awaste of there time and effort and $$ to sell it, and not make anything.


Keep and present all recent recipts.. Like new tires... stuff like that. usually they give you more back for that stuff.

Or you can buy the car back from then for a certain fee... usually cheap. But in this case i dont see you repairing that car, unfortuanly, i dont see anyone doing that.

Will prob go to a junk yard, dismantled, sell the whole drive train and good parts and crushed to 8 inches flat, then we will see it again as a fleet of Toyotas.
