    Having once owned a '95 Accord, I was a little shocked at how badly the Accord's passenger compartment disintegrated. But besides the weight differential, you also have to consider the size of the cars. Look closely at the first and second angle, and you'll see about 3/4 of the Seville's front impacts the Accord, while only 1/4 to 1/3 of the Accord impacts the Seville.

    Time marches on, but I enjoyed seeing the old road test of the '93 Eldorado ETC. Today it is often forgotten what a real surge forward the Northstar engined Cadillacs really were. Not to mention the stunning good looks of the STS's and Eldo's. In the 1990's these cars really did offer a new alternative for buyers of high end European sedans.

    I love how John Davis calls it the "return of Cadillac" in that video. Seems like we play that charade every 10 years.
