Hi, I just thought I'd post a few of the newest pics of my '83 Coupe Deville, I've had the car since Jan. '05 and have been working on it solid ever since, it wasn't in horrible shape when I got it, but it needed some work. Still, it was love at first sight, and I haven't looked back since. 49,000 m.i. and still going strong.

Most recent car show pic (I got an award that day)

That's more gorgeous than Anna Kournikova, in a bikini, on my lap (well, maybe not)

I'm jealous of the style those old big bodies have, my '92 doesn't have that, but it makes up for it in power! ;)

I like the vanilla flavored Coupe. What do you think of chocolate?

Thanks guys :) I put a lot of love into her, and I still have a couple things to do, but I really like how she's turned out so far.

Oh by the way, Rob, your picture links don't work.

Honda boy is ashamed next to Ben's '83.

He has hood envy, Ben's is longer and more erect. ;)

I think I fixed the pics. I like the brochure thing you did. My dad always makes fun of that tag line, he says, "Best of all it's a Cadillac, worst of all it has an HT 4100."

I have to say, I like chocolate more.

To me, brown just embodies luxury in these older Caddies.

Briar Brown is a nice color. I like white more, but the brown is nice too. The line about the HT4100 is so true, with a 500 or something, this would be like the perfect car. thats another reason I got the '79, I need big block.

Thanks. Thats a clean caddy you got there. what paint did you use? I used to build model cars, so I might know it. was it Testors brand? clear or regular?

you can upload the pics you want here to http://www.photobucket.com, and then copy/paste the links into your post. :)

I think it was the Testors regular brand. It took me about 45min for each wheel, but it was worth the time.
