Welcome to the forum! Your car looks fantastic! Does it have moonroof? I see the E&G grill, Chrome wheels, and Vogues, good package! I also have a 1996 Fleetwood. If you have any questions, just let me know :thumbsup:

Thanks! No moonroof though, I hear that's pretty rare option. If I have any questions I'll be sure to ask you, thanks again. What's funny was that I was looking for a DeVille and ran into this one, when I seen it I was automatically hooked!

Sweet man, I'm starting to really like those LT1 FWB's, yours is in a GREAT color! What do they call that color?

Very, very nice...and I LOVE the chromed stock Brougham wheels:thumbsup:

I just might have to buy a set of those sooner rather than later...

thanks for the comments guys! The color of the interior is Tan and the vogues tires ride great!

Question guys, i kinda figured Lingenfilter is some performance thing, but what part of the engine does it enhance? There is a tag on top of the motor about 2x4 inches, also the told me that it has the SS impala rear end.. what gears ratio as that?

impala ss if it really is impala ss rear end should be 3:08 not really much over the fleetwoods 2:93

lingen looks like it makes engine parts etc. hard to really know what was done to your car specifically

I'm not sure but I think the impala ss rear had a posi......not sure though

Yeah, I think the "Impala SS rear" basically just means the 3:08 gears and posi. Like you said, the gears wouldn't be a big change from a stock Brougham, but the posi is a nice thing to have...if it really was changed back there.

Does it have a CAI on it? Lingenfelter also makes CAI kits.

Yes that what it was .. Posi... he mentioned that, now to check if really has Posi, should turn off the traction engagment and do a burn out from there?

As for CAI? how do I check for that (is it a visual thing?) I really don't know what that is?

I believe with posi, you put one tire in the dirt and one on pavement and floor it, if it has Posi, it'll spin one tire. (am I correct?)

Uh, basically, with a posi both wheels will spin at the same time. With a non-posi, or open, diff, only one will go alone...

Ouch. I almost cried when I saw your post!

Today I traded in my 93 in the same color, with the 93 Vogue rims.

Great car. You've got the LT1, even better engine.

Good luck, and congratulations!

The guy I bought it from said they are stock rims and are pretty hard to find. At the time when I bought it I really didn't think too much of it, so I started to look up these rims on eBay, google images, etc. I dont see the chrome ones out there. Are these rims rare?

Well, they were an option in '94, '95, and '96, but still not a whole lot of them were equipped that way from the factory. Now that ten years have passed, the only way to get them basically is to find a used set for sale somewhere, but everyone who has them tends to want to keep them.

You can sometimes find a set at a scrap yard, but it all depends. I plan on getting a set too, just not sure when.
