Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum Discussion, I'd like to see....... in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; Yeah the gen II Seville was the ONLY time Cadillac had a SLOW Seville.
On another note, you mentioned the ...
I was particularly fond of this body style as well. A neighbor of ours had one in about 1970 it was Black w/ black landau top. He had wide Ansen Sprint mags and Micky Thompsons on it and it was lowered a little bit. It was the toughest lookin' car in the neighborhood!
Now thats a CAR!!!!!! I love that bodystyle, and the Olds Toronado's were very nice as well. My dad had the Olds with a 455 and I only got to drive it once before he filled up the ashtray and sold it. He traded cars very often back then, going from Caddys to Olds, to Pontaic GP and back to Caddy again. All had the 455 and would get on down the highway in style and right quick about it I might add. Man, those were the days.
Ok, I know it's not a Cadillac but I think it's worthy because....It's the ONLY FOMOCO product I've ever owned that I was happy with. '74 Lincoln MK4 bought it new! had it till '89 when some guy walked up the driveway at just the right moment with just the right amount of cash. When I sold this car it had only 24,000 miles on it and it was a total garage queen! always in the garage with a cover over it and a full 7 volume limited edition leather bound set of factory service manuals in a custom made rack in the trunk! I sold the car for $500 less than I paid for it new! The guy still has it and it currently has 32,000 miles on it and it's still a pampered garage queen!
The original wheels,tires and wheel covers are in vacum sealed plastic bags and are still with the car and only have around 5,000 miles on them!
I bought that car new when I was 19 years old! I've always liked cool cars.....My next one and every one since has been a Cadillac. Except of course the Mercedes...But that's just a toy that I like to play with kinda like some guys play with old roadsters! It mostly sits in the garage with a cover over it!
