What is your favorite Cadillac?My all-time favorite Cadillac will always be the '59 Coupe Deville. I would kill to own one of these classic.

01-13-03, 11:19 PM
Oh man.. This will just be too hard to answer.. For me anyway.. I like way too many.. But, mostly new ones.. I like the big 70's Caddy'e because they're BIG and have cool options.. Then, I like the big 80's years... And then the Northstars - all of 'em.. So many Cadillacs - so little time...

01-14-03, 11:40 AM
I never had an opinion one way or another for older ones. BUT - when the Northstar equipped Seville came to be - that was the first Caddy that I lusted after. So my favorite all-time would have to be the mid-90's Seville..

Without a doubt the '59 Coupe DeVille is my all time favorite. That is the finest looking car Cadillac ever built! There was no mistaking that it was a Cadillac from any distance.

Let's see.........I like the......
'57 Eldorado Brougham
'59-64 Coupe DeVille (or any Coupe convertible)
'71-72 Eldorado Convertible

'78 Eldorado
'79 Eldorado

Two different body styles, two great cars. The '78 had the 425, and the '79 had the Olds 350. I'm not a big fan of the 500.

I also like the 77-79 Coupe deVilles with the 425.

01-18-03, 12:09 PM
Yes, all beautiful cars in good condition.. I rarely see any of those anymore...

01-18-03, 12:19 PM
49 Fastback 2 door.

01-18-03, 01:36 PM
The 1960 Coupe DeVille is one of my all time favorites. It has enough of the '59 style, while being firmly planted in the '60's era.

01-18-03, 04:41 PM
My favorite would have to be first Cadillac, my first love, that has kept my heart to Cadillac since I was 8--the 1975 Cadillac Sedan Deville d'Elegance. It had so many electric buttons that I was fascinated and as I got older, I realized the extent of all of it's options. It was white with a white vinyl top. The interior was Manhattan (I love those names they used to give to everything), a dramatic two-tone crushed velour in dark blue. The car was loaded--Cruise Control, Tilt/Telescope steering wheel, Twilight Sentinel, Guidematic--Auto Dimming, Automatic Level Control, 8-track stereo tape player complete with the Cadillac Mancini Elegance 8-track, power passenger seat, electric rear window defogger, Theft Deterrent System, electric trunk release with power pull-down, Illuminated Entry System, Illuminated Vanity Mirror, Controlled Cycle Wipers, and remote passenger side mirror.

Standard features included Automatic Climate Control, power door locks, power windows, power antenna, power driver's seat and starter interlock system (you could not start the car unless all 3 front passengers had their seat belts fastened).

It was an amazing car that kept me with Cadillac all these years.


01-18-03, 07:57 PM
'60 Eldorado for the fins
'67-68 Eldo for the front end
'91 STS/ETC for the solid look
'57 Eldorado Brougham for the features!
air suspension, memory seats, drink tumblers...

Just reading this page amazes me!

01-18-03, 11:44 PM
I'm with Pat, the old fastback cars were my favorite.

01-19-03, 10:29 AM
Damn! That '57 was beautiful and amazing!!

I forgot to add the 68-70 Coupe DeVilles......especially the convertibles:D

01-24-03, 02:36 AM
49 Sadenite
59 Coupe DeVille (I want mine back:( )
66-68 Coupe Deville (Hard top or convertable)
70 Coupe DeVille hard top
70 Eldo
73-76 Eldo conv't
85 Fleetwood Coupe (minus the crappy 4.1 :rolleyes: )
95 Fleetwood

All my favorites. I need to get my aunts 49 Series 62 from her. She said I could have it after she passes away, but I don't want to wait that long. It's just sitting there collecting dust. It's been parked in the garage for the past 45 years. Interior is flawless and not an ounce of rust. One of these days

12-15-03, 10:44 PM
1951-1953 Coupe DeVille's

12-16-03, 07:34 AM
Well, first of all, without going way back in to the 30s & 40s super rare models, the Caddy that seems to be the ultimate, Holy Grail of Caddy's has got to be the '59 Eldorado Biarritz convertible. They are hard to beat with their understated, discreet styling cues and the sophisticated, low-key use of chrome trim. Cadillac really made a statement in '59 with their less-is-more approach to design. :D

Now, when it comes to Cadillac's that I can afford, I love the '67-'68 Coupe deVille, and Deville convertible. I actually prefer the Coupe over the convertible, which works out well for me because they're cheaper. It's the more formal, upright roofline at the back window that I like.

12-16-03, 09:12 AM
Last year of the Eldorado Brougham, I think 1961.
Fleetwood Talisman of 1974
1989-1992 Fleetwood 60-Special
1993 Sixty Special

12-16-03, 10:40 AM
Easy one:
1959 Miller-Meteor Cadillac Ambulance

12-17-03, 10:40 AM
1998 Deville

11-01-05, 10:21 PM
ummm, I would have to say the 1991 Cadillac Brougham D'elegance in leather with the TBI 350, and the wire wheel covers is my #1 favorite. My #2 favorite is the 1991-93 deVilles, Fleetwoods, and Sixty Specials

11-02-05, 07:19 AM
'67/'68 Eldorado. It started a styling trend that lasted into the 1990's.:cool2:

11-02-05, 10:45 AM
1965 Deville Convertible

11-02-05, 08:59 PM
I like a bunch of 'em for different reasons, but I can narrow it down a little:
1961 Series 62 Coupe and Coupe deVille
1967 Eldorado
1989-1992 Fleetwood Coupes

11-03-05, 03:32 AM
I would say either 59 Coupe Deville, 61 Coupe Deville, or 81 Coupe Deville(mine)

11-16-05, 02:31 AM
My favourites in order of best to worst:
1) 1959 Eldorado *Black*
2) 1976 Eldorado *White*
3) 1970 Fleetwood *Black*

12-02-05, 03:18 AM
My favorites are the bustle back 1980-85 sedan, it had a very unique style that people could easily tell its a Cadillac, the 1957-58 Cadillac Eldorado, most expensive (for that time) and the most technologically advanced (the car had power operated hood, trunk, seat (with memory), windows, locks, air suspension), the other caddy (I may be a little biased) I really like is the 1989-1993 Deville.

1970 Coupe Deville Convertible

06-24-06, 11:36 PM
1969 Fleetwood Brougham, triple black or triple dark blue.
Classic styling, big and roomy, more than ample power, reliable and long-lasting 472 engine.

A '69 Limo would be nice to make a matching set. :)

06-24-06, 11:59 PM
1980-85 Cadillac Seville Elegante

1974 Eldorado convertible
1994-1996 Fleetwood Brougham
1976 Coupe Deville

08-08-06, 10:55 PM
97~99 Devilles because its the last year Cadillac kept the slim brake light
93~02 Eldorado because they have the potential to be really fast

10-21-06, 08:01 PM
I'd have to say a 1963 Eldorado convertible as 1st choice, in bright red with white leather interior and top. 2nd place goes to the 1964 model. 3rd place goes to 1976 Eldorado--triple white. :)


10-23-06, 09:33 PM
1997 S T S... stupid auto de-capitalization.

10-24-06, 10:08 AM
I really want the last model Eldorado ETC with the red and white paint. Looks so perfect.

10-24-06, 10:11 PM
ummm, I would have to say the 1991 Cadillac Brougham D'elegance in leather with the TBI 350, and the wire wheel covers is my #1 favorite.

I might have to change that to a 1995-96 Fleetwood Brougham in teal with beige leather interior...

10-28-06, 11:32 PM
Found anothrer love? Where'd this come from?

03-01-09, 01:19 PM
Mid 1990 to 2000 Seville STS. I have a 94 STS and I love the lines so much that I offered $1500 above trade in value for it when my parents bought their 06 DTS.

04-17-09, 03:37 PM

07-31-09, 03:04 AM
I'm thinking of buying a 95 fleetwood with 40k miles for 13500.00. It's in mint condition. Could someone out there offer me some encouragement on this. I was something that is truly reliable, comfortable, and beautiful.
Thank You,

The specialest place in my heart has to belong to the special limited edition convertibles:

late-70's/early-80's Le Cabriolet

1976 Eldorado convertible (although I don't like these as much as I used to; for some reason I'm having a hard time *not* picturing longhorns tied to the grille)

1984 Eldorado convertible

and of course the 1992-2002 custom Eldorado convertible done properly

also a big fan of Coupe Devilles right now - 1949-53, 1960-64, and 1977-84 are my faves.
