    The cam shaft looks like a diamond bracelet laid out like that.
    I have been pronouncing Coupe all wrong. It is Coupe'.

    ^Itīs funny. Seems that we pronounce coupe ok in Spanish without speaking English... Almost the same for "Biarritz".

    I never heard anyone call it a Cadillac Coup-ay de Ville.

    I am very familiar with 1960 Cadillac's, my dad had a 1960 Fleetwood Sixty Special and I put a lot of miles on that car. The '60 really was a very nice car, while probably started with the '59, the sixty Cadillac had a whole new feel to it over the earlier fifties cars. It was a more modern feel and seemed like a better handling car than the earlier Cadillac's. I had a 1962 Cadillac 62 convertible, in 1966-67, and it drove just the same as the '60. There was a smoothness to the Cadillac's that really wasn't equaled by other American cars of that era. Interestingly I found Jaguars, among the European makes, to have the same well coordinated smooth feel and operation as the Cadillac's. Alfa Romeos combined great handling with the same kind of refined smooth operation of the other two.

    Dave, check out the series 1 Sevilles on Ebay right now. The light pale yellow one is Phoenician Ivory and is identical to my old '76 except mine didn't have a sunroof and also didn't have the wire hubcaps (those things would rattle and make noise). The pale gray 79 is pretty nice too!

    Re: Guido Delgatto is in the house! My 87 Brougham.

    As I was unloading Guido after a shopping trip today a young guy in my building came up and thanked me for getting an indoor parking spot.

    I was a bit bewildered.

    He went on to tell me it brightens his day to open the garage door and see it sitting there! He compared it to a figurine on a shelf. This is a guy in his 20's who you wouldn't expect to be into an old Cadillac. It really brightened up a sort of down day. I was impressed and proud of my boy.


    Guido was rather smugly unfazed......

    There is always people (old and young) who appreciates old cars. When I take out my old boys, they often receive compliments (99,5% from men), so Iīm starting to doubt about my carsī sex

    Depends on whom you're trying to appeal to.

    Well, Guido lost his cool along time ago, and finally bit the bullet and got his AC working.
    Found an independent Delco garage in the area, new Delco compressor, and 3.75 lbs of 12 and he is a cool dude again!

    Chillin' in WI.....$940.00 lighter!

    Wow! Nearly a grand! Well, enjoy the coolness---you paid for it. ;p
    On my end here, Apollo the 86 Brougham was dead last time I went to use him. The battery was way dead---stupid Costco battery the previous owner put in it! Then again, it could have been my son leaving the door unlatched over night----but the light wasn't on when I looked at it in the evening........

    Actually I have had good service from Costco batteries, I think the blame lies with your son.

    R12.....3.75lb.....$47/lb.

    I was actually very happy with the prices. An old rust one pound can on Ebay goes for about that.
    Also not cheap to use new, not rebuilt, Delco parts.

    Either way, it is worth it to me to have it done once right and be done with it.

    As for Guido, he was so excited, he peed a little!
