Hello all! I just picked up a 96 Sedan DeVille from a family member - she's not half bad, but could be better! I'm a detailer by trade and a perfectionist at that! Expect plenty of pictures down the road and maybe a few write ups!

A little about myself, I'm actually a truck guy. (I frequent a few Ford truck forums - don't hate! :D) I do enjoy all things with engines or moving parts. I've just landed a job at a local GM establishment as a parts man - uh oh, conflicting interests!! :bonkers: I'm going to school for heavy duty marine mechanics.

Pics of the car tomorrow (I know, disappointing!)... got to get some sleep before a long day of cleaning!

Well he does currently own a Cadillac:duel:

Although I can't hate on the Exploder, its a damn good truck. I'd always thought the S10 Blazers and Grand Cherokees were better until I saw/rode in yours. Kind of revived my faith in a truck many people had written off.

The Roadmaster makes a damn good cadilc substitute for the time being.

Yeah, the explored is a surprisingly decent old truck. I could actually see owning another one.

Thanks for the welcomes fellas!

Austin - nice to meet ya. Looks like you own a 96 exploder; I just sold mine!

Anywho, the moment we've all been waiting for - pics!

She's clean, but the rear half has a bad match job on a repaint. (The clear was failed on the rear, and some dents were filled, hence the re-paint)

That is one nice Deville, and welcome to the Forums! I'm in Decatur and just a short way from Cumming.
