What a great forum this is.......
Just trying to learn how to navigate around the options and vast amounts of information, experience, and knowledge on this great site.
THANKS GUYS to all the great work that must go on behind the scenes...
I found an '87 Eldorado with just 20k miles on it..... originally from Tampa Florida it was used there for 6 years and then brought to the U.K. with the intention of using her in London...... for whatever reason it didn't get used and was put into storage for 10 years..... Apparently with a minimum amount of work it turned over immediately ..... and now it's found one tender loving owner to enjoy her!
....... but not forgetting now we have to look after and tend to the odd problem that occasionally arise!!!
Thanks again to all.
Mike

Good luck with the Eldorado. Are there any dealership's in the U.K.? I know Cadillac is making a campaign to sell cars in Europe. They just unvieled a new model for sale only in Europe, I think it's called the BLS or BSL.

Thanks...... There were quite a number when they launched right hand drive vehicles but they tied them into certain GM UK dealerships that sold Vauxhall (Cavaliers/Astra etc;).... not exactly the consumer for Cadillac...... It was an unmitigated disaster...and anyway the DeVille the only model they officially launched was not right for the UK market...(Our petrol/gas prices are around $7 per gallon!!!)
They are to launch a new model ...... think it's to be CTS through selected appointed new one off dealerships.
Quite a number of Escalades are appearing being driven by our top soccer players alongwith the odd Hummer.
Cheers
