    My new baby

    Those who went to the midwest meet back in April know of the struggles I have had with my other car and its tranny. I finally got it back yesterday, after nearly 2.5 months in the shop. I was searching around on Craigslist and came across this beauty and thought it was too good to pass up.

    Here she is. 1995 Sedan DeVille with 57,7XX miles on it. It has the 4.9 engine. I paid $4000. IMO, you cannot find a nicer car for the money. The paint job is immaculate with only a few rock chips up front. I haven't even waxed it yet and it still shines like it belongs in a show room. The leather is also perfect. It doesn't have any stress marks on it. The drivers side mirror takes a bit of getting used to though because it is actually tinted gold for the autodimming thing. You can see it in the picture of the rear.
























    It even came with a video tape, a Cadillac calculator, a Cadillac notepad and a Cadillac pen. I also have the original window sticker, but it was hard to get a good picture of it and our scanner is broken.

    I am still keeping the Fleetwood, but it will be mostly for my dad's use since his van is getting too old. And no cracks about the Lexus license plate frame, I haven't had time to get a new one from Heritage yet.

    Dang! What a beaut! One of the best color combos IMO....Carmine Red with the Neutral leather interior. Don't ya feel so proud? Man, this takes me back to the day I bought my deVille. It was about that clean too, but I had another 40k on it.

    Now I have an interior that can hold its own against Brian's at the next meet.

    I am also the only one in my group of friends that has a cupholder in thier car. Not that I'll ever be using them of course.

    Yeah, I'd be very curious to see what that runs in the 1/4.

    Its not a slow car, thats for sure. Me and my friend with the IROC work at the same Wal-Mart and we were messing around on the way home from work last night. Rolling start from about 40 we went to about 80. His IROC has the L98, which is all torque and no horsepower, so I was damn near even with him to 65, which is when his car shifts to third and then he blew my ass out of the water. By the end he was only about 1.5 car lengths ahead of me. If we had done the same from a dead stop I would have been at least 4 and maybe more lengths behind him.

    Re: My new baby

    When I had my '92, I raced a 1987-90 (before they redesigned the front fascia) Trans Am GTA from a stop. I wasn't sure if it had the standard L98 350 with the four speed auto, or the optional TBI 305 with the five speed, but I hung right with him until about 40-45 then he pulled away. Hope that helps. I was never ever unsatisfied with the amount of torque the 4.9L puts out...

    Nice find! Better yet not a Northstar, I love the torquey 4.9. Clean those carpets, they are unfitting of such a beauty!

    ^ Yah yah. Its really hard to keep anything clean around here. Its been very windy and rainy lately so it blows crap out of the trees and then it sticks to your feet and then it muddies up your car.

    Or if nothing else, you should buy rubber floor mats from Cadillac.
