    Well Dave, I got to enjoy a rare day that everything on my Brougham worked!

    Tonight the cable in my antenna broke! Unplugged it to stop motor and ordered a new one already....

    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!
    $47?! Wow! Well, cool is expensive.

    Have fun removing the wheel, panel et al. That job is easy but it is a pain to get to the antenna in the first place.

    Went to the mechanic today and my son gets a pass. He recharged it over the weekend and tested the battery---it failed so in goes a new Delco battery for Apollo. Hopefully the radio clock and readout will start working again.

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

    Took a short trip to West Bend WI to buy some wire wheels for the 74.
    Was 202 miles round trip and with the cruise set at 65 and the AC pumping got 18.9 MPG. Fixing my vacuum leak returned a couple more MPG than the last time I checked highway mileage.
    Very impressed. I even passed a car on the two lane that was doing 51 in the 55 MPH.
    No running start, and sort of a short passing zone with no problem. I am becoming more of a fan of the 307 as I drive it. By no definition a fast car with it, but certainly all I would ever need or want.
    Based on my memories of the 82 SDV, I would say this is easier to pass with. Passing on the two lane with the HT4100 was a white-knuckle affair. Did not get that feeling with the 307.

    On a more personal note, about 3/4 of the trip was 4 lane, 65 MPH. I can not think of a more pleasurable car to eat up mile after mile of the Eisenhower Interstate System than a Cadillac Brougham. Popped in a Rockin' 70's cassette, and off we went. The only way it could have been better is with an attractive cocktail service attendant!

    Really looking forward to my trip with Guido to the CLC Museum dedication in Sept. Just sent my reservation in today.

    For the people who follow my threads that don't hang out in the Lounge, here is a link to some random, drunk thoughts on my father's passing.

    The roads of the great Mid West are what our American cars were design and made for and their size and ride make them superior to any other cars for the purpose. And if you could afford the price Cadillac cars did the job the best!

    So many Broughams in one place. Cool! (won't let me quote the post with that last pic for some reason)
