I have been thinking of getting a '92 Fleetwood Brougham as a second car. I've seen some nice ones with low miles and in very nice physical and mechanical shape for around $4,000-$6,000. I had an '84 DeVille until just about 6 years ago and loved it.
My question is, am I asking for trouble because of the older computer technology? Or if I find a nice vehicle and keep it well maintained, would I not expect to have too much trouble?

Try asking in the section for RWD. They will be able to offer more input.

They're very reliable cars. All due to that old design (time tested) and lack of too much technology. Most reliable Cadillacs made in those years, and arguably some of the best ever, for reliability that is.

If you live anywhere near Los Angeles, CA.. my cousin out there is selling his 1992 Fleetwood Brougham with 62K original miles for $5500 :thumbsup:

My 92 305 Brougham has 200K mi., and one of my 90 350 Broughams has 180K mi. - neither has ever had an EFI related problem.
My 1990, 350, FWB has 130,000 miles. Runs SUPER. Go for it!
I also put 300,000 on a 1989(2 engines, my Daughter is driving it now), and 187,000 on a 1982(V-6). Great cars.

Of course you will need a carb/intake and dual exhaust but it would be a great start!.
