Hello everyone again, I couldn't help but post some updated pictures of my Brougham. I detailed her for the coming warmer weather. I park her outside the front door of my hotel, I manage the Comfort Inn in Petersburg, Va. I really think that it looks epic in this parking spot, like it is in a classic 1980's commercial. Let me know what you think....

Thank you so much, I sit outside on my break and think to myself,all these cars in this parking lot and I have the oldest and most elegant. They just don't produce them like this anymore. That's why im so thankful for this site and we as devoted followers.

It's beautiful...and sets a classy tone to the location. Your guests might not be able to put their finger on that sensation...but it's there.

Well done!!!

That is a eal Cadillac with a v8 and real chrome bumpers and long enough for leg room and comfortable ride. I can tell the rear door paint color has been repainted. How is the gas mileage?

Gas Mileage is excellent in my opinion, I can fill the tank completely and drive 2weeks to work there and back. Roughly 625 miles on one tank on the highway.

Sorry btw for the delayed responses I've been working a lot at the hotel.. Management position offers me no time to socialize. I'm working on getting the top revinyled and the one rear filler panel replaced, I strategically hid in the photo on the passenger side. And the headliner replaced. I was planning on keeping the whole car original except I had a thought of adding a touch of Burberry to the headliner inside. brown pattern number 5 classic. Just not sure yet....

I would rather be run down by a Cadillac than by any other car though!

What's that script on the side in front of the passenger door? Never seen that before.

What is up with the front of your cadillac? It's got body colored bumperettes, a grille cap (but it doesn't seem to be missing the pieces that sit alongside the grille), and some not factory light bezels.

It looks like a 1979 Eldorado. Looks pretty factory stock to me.

I realize that now. I was looking at it on my phone (small pic) and was thinking....man thats a goofy brougham front end.

That's just some random picture i pulled from the internet, it's not mine. I wouldn't allow mine to have a huge dent like that in the front bumper!
