i know that there are quite a few there, but they all look nice lol. i think i like #6 a lot, and it just happens that it is one of the cheaper ones. what do you guys think. i would like to get one very soon. plus #6 is pretty close to me, which helps out.

What do you wanna use it for?

It's not a replacement for the Brougham is it?

01-20-06, 12:26 PM
nope, it'll be more of a daily driver for when the weather is nicer. i have my geo for a winter beater but i dont want to drive it during the summer and my parents want me to have something safer for driving to college cuz its like 240 miles away. the geo is about the size of the trunk on my brougham. lol.

what do you guys think about not having a sunroof, how big of a deal is that?

01-20-06, 12:42 PM
Sunroofs are nice to have but it is also something to go wrong and something that can be expensive to fix. It will eventually break.

have had several and rarely opened them .... to much noise and turbulance ...

and from i remember from my 30+ years living in Akron, the sun doesn't come out that much ..!!!

I really want a sunroof in my next car. I've never had one before, and I think its very cool. And yes, I am aware of the leakage problems and such, but I think that if they've had them for as long as they have, they would most of the kinks worked out by now.

01-20-06, 08:00 PM
well, i think im gonna go look at it tomorrow. i'll start with an offer of $6,000. im sure it will go up a bit, but hey, you gotta try. plus they should take some off of that price for how shitty the drivers side carpet is lol.

From a financial standpoint, it seems kind of wierd to have a $7,000 1998 (?) seville be the daily driver so your 1988 Brougham doesnt get dirty or rusty, but from a sentimental standpoint, it makes good sense.

Sevilles are not nearly as rare or as special, and Broughams are rare and quite special IMO.
