I'm Ben......a college student here in the heartland and rabid Cadillac fan :D

Fleetwoods (esp. '93-96) and Eldorados ('79-85 & '92-02/03?) are my favs.....and hopefully if I ever get out of school & get a job here in a yr. or two, I can get my hands on one of them. :cool:

In the meantime, I'll devour any and all pics/info on these classic rides that come my way.

As for why a guy like me is into Caddies (as opposed to maybe Mustangs or ricers).....it's pretty simple... I've been in a few accidents and my insurance situation isn't too pretty. A used Cadillac (esp. an older one) would afford me somewhat of a break on my rates (have done some checking on this).... Then there's the practicality thing. I always have 2-3 people hangin around with me on the weekends doin whatever.....and my ride (a Ford P.O.S) is usually the last pick/last resort when we head out for a night on the town. So when I think about something w/some room, comfort and style, I think 'Cadillac' all the way :cool:

Welcome aboard. Save your money, and when you're ready, check back in the classifieds here. There's lots of Cadillacs for almost any budget.

You seem like someone with a lot of logic! Caddys are way better than ricers...seems your college is actually teaching you something!

Welcome. the Fleetwoods and Eldo are nice. Have you ever imagined trying to park one of those things on the street? Yeah, me too.
